I think that once it picks up speed that the giant box can be replaced with patreon and pay pal symbols like before. But right now when it's needed and while people need explanation on what patreon is, we can deal. The important info is at the top and small enough that a full sized screen with normal font doesn't have to scroll down. It's honestly the same as going to a site and having a news reel. Only if we had it along the side it'd mess with everything else. Honestly, given the flow of the site, the only issue I've had with it is my tendency to push the "show unread posts since last visit" button instead of the "show new replies to your post" button. Even on my phone with it's huge ass font, with everything disabled, I can see the content beginning.
