A heads up to #India folks, this is not bird app, this is open source so each of the different instances you are in, there is someone else working for you to get this experience. I see lot of you asking for features and moderators, it’s pretty entitled I feel, they are funded by donation so pls try to donate to different instances you are in: for the number of folks we have brought in even if each of us pay 100 rupees, it will make huge difference . I will get information where we can donate
@citrustwee okay cool! Mstdn instance is flooded and I heard it is not as largely funded as mastodon and most went there for blue tick 😬 I will try to find others
Most users got home at either mastodon.social or mstdn.social
So monetise contribution to these instances first.
Despite, mastodon.social is well funded but recent surge of new users must cost them resource.
It is advised new users to contribute to their respective home instance.
For donating to #Mastodon software development can be done later pace as instances requires financial support than development
I am running an other instance which is quey.org.
Though, I am seeing a few making donation now.
Have you donated yet ?
@noorul on it . Patreon log in is a bit of a problem . I already have an account but forgot the password and it is not in the manager and patreon still hasn’t sent the reset link ...
Will do as soon as I can get in
@noorul Thx . the reduction in rage level after quitting twitter is worth much much more than this monthly subscription !
If you are generous to donate $10 every month, I suggest you something.
You may better have your own instance.
There is a service for this https://masto.host/pricing, roughly $10 monthly.
Even better, start/sponsor an instance which accommodate about 50 members.
The value is here to go decentralised, small.
@noorul wish I could spare the time . I spend quite a lot of time managing my own machines that I use for my ML/backtesting derivatives trading work . Will think about this though .
Actually, I've not checked out myself.
As far I seen now, once you login into patreon.com, you are given credit/debit card & paypal.com option.
in order use SBI card, it need to be Visa/Mastercard international and need to enable international transaction.
Enable transaction with SBI debit card is possible with sending sms or via Internet banking.
With choosing Paypal option, you MAY show Internet banking to pay. (This is I am not checked yet)
Like I mention before, not all debit card work for internationally.
stupidly, there is even 2 system. When enabling International transaction for debit card, 1st they enable international ATM transactions, than need to request for international P.O.S (point of sale) again with some banks.
