It’s time again for a good old fashioned poll.
Today, I would like to ask people about what kind of content they enjoy seeing on the site, and what they would like to see more of.
You can click as many as you like. But only click the ones that you actually like the most. If everyone just clicks everything, it doesn’t help.
Also, I’ll just take the opportunity here to shill for shekels. I haven’t asked for money in a very long time, because I always forget or don’t feel like it.
For the record, we always need money. We pretty much always spend more money than we take in each month, then all of a sudden some guy drops a huge amount on us. It’s not a stable situation, and it would be much better if everyone donated every month – or quarterly or annually or whatever, but on a schedule.
This has all gotten extremely expensive, and I don’t think people necessarily realize that we are the only website on the internet with millions of monthly readers that has zero income other than what people send us through crypto. The site is in no way monetized. Every other big website on the internet has ads, subscriptions, PayPal tips, sells merch, etc. – we don’t have any stable income at all.
Many people have requested that we get the BBS back up on the normie web. Okay. Well, all of you that requested it should be sending MONEY. This is no joke. We have to have money to operate.
We could also potentially get more content if we had more money. People liked some of the radio shows I did recently (Krypto Report, Ralph Retort), and have said I should do more. Well, you people see how much I write, do you not? This takes like 10+ hours, every day. If we had more writers, I would be able to free up a day every week to do the radio thing. I could also try doing some gaming streams. Also, my content would probably be better, because I would be less burned out.
The gaming streams would be super tiring if I did my idea of doing Baldur’s Gate and reading all of the voices myself. But it would be glorious.
So please: donations are completely anonymous. You have nothing to fear on that front. If you don’t know how to use bitcoin, then just figure it out. You can easily just go to a bitcoin ATM, and it is self-explanatory.
If you want to know whether your donation went through (they always do, but I understand you might be concerned and want confirmation), you can just check the blockchain. You can also check the blockchain to find out how little money is actually coming in – this is all transparent.
Just imagine how big and influential this site is on that budget – it’s mind-boggling.
And remember that these are always right there in the sidebar. You can also find more information about how to donate on this page.
EVERY MAJOR CITY IN THE WORLD HAS A BITCOIN ATM THAT YOU CAN JUST SCAN THAT QR CODE ON AND FEED BILLS INTO. YOU CAN ALSO ARRANGE TO MEET SOMEONE IN YOUR AREA AND EXCHANGE CASH. THIS IS NOT DIFFICULT – AND IT IS TOTALLY ANONYMOUS.
Everything helps, guys.
Please do help.
