@Gargron Someone can explain to me what exactly Patreon is?
@francesco Like recurring donations, sometimes with rewards
@Gargron Thank you, I just searched Patreon on DuckDuckGo for more informations
To my followers/readers:
Let's try and throw some support here today as many new users are here.
@Gargron those sponsorships appear to be sold out.
@thegibson Only the frontpage one (the frontpage is quite full...)
@Gargron is there a way to contribute a single amount using paypal like archive.org and the guardian? I dont want to create an account for this. Is it possible?
@Gargron New user here ✋ I'm down for chipping in some BAT monthly. Any plans on becoming a Brave publisher?
