I've enabled the display of the ads banner again for a donor.

OK, I bought Might and Magic 8 by clicking on the banner. Took me directly to my account on GOG. That counts toward RPGWatch I hope

Could I suggest again the idea of setting up a bitcoin wallet for donations? You don't have to set up any kind of processing account like PayPal and such - you just set up the wallet and post the ID, a bit like an email address. Then people could pay into it easily, and the ID is useless to thieves without your private key.

They only transfer once the saved up amount is above €150? Even if it was 8% for all buys, it would still mean €1875 worth of games bought via RPGWatch. Quite significant. I hope it's not an annual thing that gets reset at new years or some such thing.

That's a great system for generating revenue for you/us!

Just out of precaution though, can I/we be reassured that this wont produce a conflict of interest in the future? Such as anyone finding reason to criticise gog or any related topic off-shoots.

Like when gog becomes GoodNewGames at some point, for example. Or GoodJustAnotherGamesShopGames or whatever.

And any related criticism of potentially revenue friendly titles being released and associated negativity.

I'm not entirely fussed, I'm just clarifying the continued status of the site being truly independent, as it/you has/have proudly stated many times over the years.

I no longer engage in paid ads with publishers and such anymore for that exact reason. There is this situation where we would run a paid ad and we provide a not so positive review, resulting in a discussion where they are disappointed and never will run any ads anymore with us, but don’t want to influence us in anyway as they respect the freedom of the press

Our engagement with GOG is different. They are also not publishers or developers, they ‘just’ sell games.

I wish you could set a preferred referrer when shopping at GOG, regardless of how you arrive at the site. Because I always forget to click on banners. (Impulse buys FTW.)
