    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.

    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?

    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

    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'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.
