$133 - (not including patreon fees I have to look and see what that looks like around 100 bucks I believe Cost to Host + Email
Not right now @askulte we could set something up via Stripe… or Paypal? but frankly we are doing fine at the moment ads + patreon is covering the expense nicely, there is no goal of us making any money, we want to break even and that’s plenty.
Per info the old thread, I disabled the email list mode, I didn’t realize it was costing the site more. I set E10Help to be a tab whenever I open my browser instead plus it’s such a habit to come to the site anyway I don’t need the emails to remind me.
HI @ckrusen yes we could do something like that but a lot of users don’t log in, they just read the emails and that’s the way it always worked in yahoo and we don’t want to change that. (unless we have to)
I like the email flexibility, I’m not always at a computer. And I don’t always have the app open on my phone. That’s one of the reasons I Patreon. Frankly 1 buck a month is not too much to ask for and if everyone donated then there would be no need for Ads (which I hate btw). Using e10 help to help me has helped me a lot. Say that really fast a few times.
One of the most important things I have found it’s great to have a community to fall back to when you are looking for a solution to a problem, makes you feel like you are no the only one in the same situation as yourself. You may not always get the answer you are looking for, but it provides the value of having others throw in their point of view on a problem, or similar one. Often this can be a big time saver.
So $1 or $100 I encourage people to sign up for Patreon, and try to contribute to posts where you can/feel appropriate, don’t be shy. (Small dog looking up with big eyes and violin playing in background)
