What can I say? 10bux is 10bux. Thank you for giving the site the money directly instead of registering a new account every time you are probated.

Twenty dollars is a large chunk of change, and buys a large chunk of website. Plus it's never been cheaper!

About Something Awful

Most people reading this are probably familiar with the Something Awful forums. If you are not, well, you see, Something Awful is like Middle Earth. I'm Gandalf the White.

I'll start by being honest with you: When it comes to hosting costs alone, the forums aren't in danger of losing their hosting or running out of money any time soon. Donations to this patreon should be made because you want to, not because you think you need to.

Developer hours are expensive and the people that put their time and effort into maintaining and upgrading the site deserve to be paid for their work. The extra income this patreon can provide would be used for features and changes that will benefit everyone moving forward. There is a lot of modernization that needs to be done - many aspects of the site's technology have been neglected for over a decade. Moreover, I would like to hire brilliant artists and writers within the community to produce content that can demonstrate to the world what our community is capable of.

In short, please give the site money. I will use the money to do cool things for the website. You can see some of them already and there are many more on the way, and the extent of that.

NOTE: I am not promising any sorts of rewards for any of these tiers, at least excepting the last one. Like I said, give money to SA because you want to - the money will go to making the site better. HOWEVER, I might just give out some sort of reward anyway. As such, it would be beneficial for you to use the same email address on your patreon as you do for your forums account. This would be a good thing to check when signing up!
