About Rodrigo

Hi there and welcome to my Patreon page.
If you haven't read any of my work before, please have a look at some of the articles I wrote: https://copetti.org/projects/consoles/

The project

I want to build an informative, consistent and throughout place to read about the inner workings of video-game consoles.
My articles are dedicated to those who want to understand why each system could display what it did, and how did it manage to do so. The writings are also available on Github for everyone that wants to contribute or discuss changes.

The funding

All in all, there are no profits to be made from the website (otherwise, it would've been riddled with ads!) and there's no 'premium' content either. It's just a place where I share my writings. But as any other website, it costs money to maintain, so this Patreon was made for those who found my write-ups interesting and would like to help out.

Your contribution will be used to pay for hosting, fund the materials used for each article and get more resources that will help me to improve the quality of current articles and upcoming ones. As a token of appreciation, your name will be mentioned on the credits of the next article.

Release frequency

I strive to make the articles as complete as possible (here is an example). I'm not trying to re-write the Wikipedia, but I will be dedicating a lot of time an effort to make it a piece worth reading. For this reason, each article takes around 3-5 months to write. I often publish weekly updates to show the latest progress, but it's important to take into account that if I haven't published anything in 2-3 months, is because I'm still working on it, so don't feel that I abandon it. In any case, feel free to ask me questions anytime if you'd like to know about my progress.

Staying updated

Important updates (like when a new article draft is finished) are shared here, but if you are interested in small updates (like when I add new content on an existing article), I announce these on my Twitter account. Finally, every single change is logged in the dedicated Github repo.
Goals
$72.20 of $96.13 per month
Add an eBook version of every article.

Many have asked me to turn this site into a book. This may take some time, but I can start by adding a digital book edition of the articles. This will be published in EPUB format (optimised for eBook readers) as a downloadable file at the top of each article. You can find an example here.

Offering a new medium will consume higher amounts of bandwidth and storage, so I need to step up the budget allocated for this site. If this milestone is reached, I'll be able to afford the new costs.
