I write code that sucks. If you do, too, maybe swing by our Mastodon server and see what other folks whose code sucks are up to?

Already a member there? Awesome! Please consider chipping in a bit to help me cover server costs.

Already a patron? Well, gee, thanks! I'll be sure to put your money directly into the instance itself! (I don't really need it for anything else, and using it elsewhere would be dishonest anyway... And since I've already admitted my code sucks, it doesn't make any sense to be dishonest about other things, either.)

You're helpful, but you're already getting more from simply being here than you would from anything else. You'll get mentioned on Mastodon in a blanket thanks for donations, and otherwise get to feel just a bit better about having given something back to a place you might call home.

You write code, and you're proud of it. Even though it sucks. You get more from this than the Interns, but on the other hand, you're expected to do more to help out. You'll get mentioned in the monthly blanket thanks, and from time to time I'll ask you to give some feedback on how things are going. Of course, you're the one paying, so there's no punishment for not responding, but still... Do you really want to leave the fate of the instance to everyone else?


Oh, and you'll get access to the Discord server, so you can bug me in real time.

Your sucky code lets you do things with other people's sucky code that it was never designed to do. It's not about breaking and entering. It's about finding flaws, fixing them, enhancing the software so it becomes everything it should have been to begin with. You'll get your monthly thanks on Masto, and access to the same surveys the Coders get, plus the option to suggest questions for the next survey, recommend things to add/change/etc. Your chance to shape the possibilities as well as the outcomes.


And yes, you still get Discord access.

You don't write code. You craft it. It may still suck, but that's by design. Everything you build is designed in advance, then assembled into a working whole from there. You even delegate some of the coding tasks to Hackers, Coders, or Interns, freeing you to focus on the complex parts, the pieces of actual beauty that tie it all together, and give you the drive to design the project in the first place. You'll get everything the others do, plus realtime, collaborative input into the way things are actually implemented in practice. I mean, I'm still the Architect, here, so I get the final call, but still, input is invaluable, and most of the time will directly shape my final call.


All this plus a Discord invite!
