CBDQ is free to use, but this tier is priced at about the amount that it would cost to run a bot on a server of your own

if you would like assistance with making your bot work, or doing a particular thing, maybe this is the tier for you? or if you want to support me in supporting others - every week i get messages asking for assistance with CBDQ, and i try to do my best to help out.

About v buckenham

hello, I'm v, and i make free online tools to let people express themselves in new ways.

so far, I've made Cheap Bots, Done Quick!, a free website which lets you create a Twitterbot, giving a Twitter account a life of its own to create anything from poetry to pictures. over 20,000 bots live on the easy-to-use service, including @infinite_scream, @tinycarebot, and my own @softlandscapes. and yours could join them!

i'm now also working on a tool codenamed Downpour. it'll make creating interactive scenes ("video games") quick and easy for anyone with a smartphone. i'm aiming to launch it in 2022, and will tell you more here as it starts to come alive.

i think it's important that these tools are free, and accessible to everyone who wants to use them. i've spent a lot of effort making them welcoming and easy to use - and that work would be undercut if i had to exclude access based on ability to pay. So i am running this Patreon. if you would like these services to continue, and if you would like me to spend time developing and supporting them, then I appreciate whatever you can spare.
$307.62 of $350 per month
this is the the point where i can start taking time away from other paying projects to work on CBDQ a little bit each month
