Glad to see you too, and thank you for all your effort. I'm rather fond of this thing you've made.
I will definitely support Anime-Planet on Patreon! I really love this site!
I think you might also consider fundraising campaigns several times a year. They work since they get people excited about reaching a goal.
We offer 3 roles to Patrons on Discord depending on which tier you sign up to.
Tip Jar - Supporter role
Silver - Silver Supporter role
Gold - Gold Supporter role
You can see a list of the benefits for each role by joining our Discord server and checking out the #news channel:
So... does this mean there might be a goal where once you get enough support, you remove the clickbait news articles or something?
Eh? We don't post news articles on Anime-Planet. Can you give more context?
I will Definitely be turning my Adblocker off on this site and hitting up Patreon! <3 ya guys!
Um. Idk what you call it then? Whenever I'm on any overview page of a manga or something, there's a box to the right that says something random like "Chloe Zhao becomes first woman to win golden globe for best director (featured by vi)" maybe tabloid articles instead of news?
Sorry, this probably isn't the place to say anything about this, I'm just not interested in those myself and I know ad revenue is a thing, I wasn't like. Trying to complain. I just think they're weird, lol.
Ads can be annoying, but more annoying and sad would be the site going down, ill disable adblock
I don't use addblock and barely see any ads here
Gotcha - these are indeed some of the few ad units we have (we don't control the content in the ads). As long as it ends up being feasible from a coding perspective, we aim to launch a Patreon tier that will include ad-free browsing (will not show any ads)
Gotcha, sounds cool :) I know little about coding besides that adding new things sometimes messes up the rest so best of luck with that and thanks for responding :)
I legit just found the dark mode...
The dark mode is really great!! ^-^
I'm glad you got the patreon up, it's nice to be able to give back to A-P after all the years of being our fantastic database :)
You should have a presence on other platforms than just Patreon, such as SubscribeStar, for us that don't like or want to give Patreon money.
Direct paypal donations are still possible here. Maintaining multiple platforms is not very fesiable for the small staff team currently and eats into the time that would be better spent actually doing things on site.
This may be true but I have to agree with Reavinger in this instance. Patreon has done some sketchy stuff fairly recently and as a matter of principle AND to avoid any potential headaches down the road, I would prefer not to give them my money...I guess I will have to make a donation using PayPal in lieu of subscribing (but that kinda sucks) unless subscribing via PayPal is an option? (Tbh, lately PayPal has kind of been a dick, too, to quite a few YouTube content creators who used to sell merchandise to promote their channels...but there are fewer and fewer options open to us every day it seems.)
