Patreon Happened

Ok. Well, patreon happened and wtf that was a wild success. Now i can pay for hosting from my THIRD job. Awww yeah.

So i want to thank all of the people that support this forum in some way, and that’s going to take a minute to sort out. However, something i can do now is give my supporters some titles and an immediate level adjustment to Leader. So here’s what i need from you guys to do that: If you registered with the forum using a different email address than you entered at patreon, PM me both of the email addresses. Then i can match them up and verify you’re not just clowning. If you used the same one, do nothing. I’ll find you because they’ll match.

Also i have to think of a title. Maybe one of these:

  • Community Supporter
  • Friend of Esk8.news
  • I help make all this possible
  • VIP Money
  • I love damon
  • I made it rain

Whatever. I’m taking suggestions. After all, you guys are wearing them.

Also, if there is ever a point where there’s more money than bills, i’ll start giving shirts or something out to subscribers.

I doubt we need Leader status(isn’t this a free hand out of mod status?). Just let us be below leader, something custom perhaps? Keeping mods intact etc.

I’ll take a custom flair any time. :smiley:

I’m pretty sure I used the same email.

And I’m going to continue to post the patreon link everywhere I possibly can!

I can’t thank you enough for making this place happen!

LOL what you don’t want people to pay me so they can unfairly moderate posts and recategorize things and edit anyone whenever they feel like? Maybe i should have read everything they can do first… lol

Immediate graduation to level 3 (regular) seems legit though.

Yup, I was a regular, so regular seems fine. Leader is the exceptional rank. It should be kept that way. Just my opinion.

I have to agree lol

Maybe we should start a Patreon for @longhairedboy to shave his head. Once it reaches a certain amount, it gets live streamed.

It’s just a simple “rebirth” fee. :laughing: You know, reincarnation in another forum takes some time to do.

i’m leaning heavily towards “friend of esk8.news” for people who haven’t already been awarded ridiculous titles by other admin.

I’m probably going to sweep through this list in a couple of hours so weigh in now.

i was specifically asked by the very first donator not to change his semi-racist yet lovingly applied title. lol

i skate with an italian who calls himself Guido and tells everyone else to call him that too. I’m familiar with the situation. I mean… we’re skaters.

My best friend in college, a black guy about 6-6 used to tell people to call him Spook…and not in a friendly way, like all deep voiced and bowed up :slight_smile:
