Building and maintaining Knockout.

Developing new forums from scratch and tailor made for the community has costs, both for hosting and for the developers. To keep us going, we need your support.

We need your help for two main reasons:
  • Hosting something on this scale and keeping it nice and fast is expensive. Most of us developers do have day jobs, but none of us can afford to keep big forums up by ourselves. When you back us, you're helping make sure that we can pay this month's bills - and save up some money for the future so that if something happens the lights don't go out.
  • To give back to the developers and keep them interested and motivated to maintain and further develop the software. Knockout was created from scratch by a single person and it's still in its infancy, so there's a lot that has to be done and fixed. Once we manage to have all our hosting costs covered for at least several months, we intend to start sharing some of the Patreon earnings between the developers. This is still quite a ways off, so we haven't really gotten around to it yet.
For the sake of privacy (and to avoid drama our little community is known for), we are not displaying our earnings. We might make a "x% of this month's bills covered!" indicator or something, but we have a lot of other things to work on, so that might not come until later.

Before you back us, it's important to be aware of a few things.

  • Being a patron will not reduce your chances of being banned, even permanently.
  • Gold Members (or any other types of patron) can still get banned temporarily or permanently, and the rules still apply to you. These are nothing but extra perks as a way to thank you for helping.
  • You should (like everyone that signs up to the forums) be aware of the privacy policy. (That you read before, during and after registration, right?)
  • Your patron perks are given out once a month. Contact Inacio to claim yours if you haven't yet.
  • Animated avatars can be set once per month and need to be in the right format, filesize and dimensions. Check this with the team before backing us.Before you back us, it's important to be aware of a few things.Before you back us, it's important to be aware of a few things.
