Hi guys!

Sorry if this has been asked before, but the only posts I can find date back to 2018 (yes, I'm late on the pick-up XD)!

I just subscribed to the patreon at the $9/month level because I want to be able to support this awesome site and I have a pay that can support it easily, but the last post on the topic (that I could find) was active about two years ago, and I have two questions:

1. Are all the donations going to Vekseid and/or the server costs still?

and

2. Is it still possible to get the gold/supporter badge? Who does this? My username is WillowPup on there, do I need to message someone on that end? I'm happy to provide proof of payment somehow lol.

The badge is not the important thing, I really want to support the site, but its a nice perk! lol

Thanks in advance!

 Hi there!

I had a similar situation not that long ago.  The best option is to send Vekseid a PM, since he is the one doing the Patreon.
He did a verification of my Patreon and E memberships and adjusted my gold bar status soon thereafter.

Exactly what MrAlanNH said.  The badge update is a manual thing, and while Veks does update it regularly, a PM can ensure that he recognizes whose donation needs tallying.  Since your username is the same, there shouldn't be any additional information required.

Vekseid

Just send me a message there after you get charged at the end of the month. And pm me here to tell me I need to check my Patreon again. : )

All money goes to my costs for running E, yes. : )

Hello~

Since someone brought this up I'll add a question myself.

I've donated through Patreon for a few months but for the time being, I can't contribute to the cause. So I was wondering if the badge is given only to those who donate regularly or to anyone that helps?

Any donation qualifies you for the badge, just need to PM Vekseid so he can confirm your past donation and switch you over.

Thank you everyone!! :) I shall do exactly that right now, because I'm very good at forgetting! XD

And thank you for confirming! I really, really love this place, and every little thing I can do makes me feel good. At the moment, it's a home within my home, at the same time as an escape within my home. Very confusing. lol
