Default Anyone supporting on Patreon?

Yesterday, 20:04
With the recent demonetization shenanigans on YT.
Usually not jumping into this ( and with a tight budget), but ended up supporting a few channels that stand out:
Angry Centaur Gaming…great, thorough on point reviews, done fv
Lindybeige…never thought of supporting someone blubbering history lessons, but this guy makes any dry subject very entertaining, easy to follow
Noah Gervais…not as frequent, but he does a few, very in depth retrospects on older and more recent series

I'm currently supporting Oryx Design Lab - they develop game sprites and tiles that I'm using for an Iceblink project. Really good stuff.

I was also supporting a blogger called VGJunk who does entertaining write-ups on retro games. He's not doing Patreon any more but his blog is still running regular updates and it is great:

I don't want to use that site, feels a bit shady although apparently it's not.
If I ever go Patreon someone, that'll be Jim Sterling. Hates season passes more than I do. I know, it's not possible but well it is.

I have a supporter from the 'Watch on my Patreon. Definitely appreciate him, so shout out to ya know ya are!

I'm kind of focused on my own ventures right now but in the future I'm not against supporting some folks on there. From what I've seen there's some pretty interesting content coming from users on there.

I give a few bucks to fantasy authors I enjoy. Helps them eat once a week or so but still keeps them hungry

Yep, mainly open source projects that I'm into. I'm a big fan of the micropayment idea, and targeted support of projects. The ad-supported model is always going to be rotten in the end.

No, I tend to only give money here. It's the only online place I have been visiting consistently for over a decade. I don't think others have gained this level of regularity from me.

A few YTers I currently watch are:
- ColonelRPG: He plays lots of classical RPGs (Planescape Torment, Fallout) and modern RPGs (Withcer III) as well as some newer type "RPGs" (Darkest Dungeon). I found him through another one called
-BumpyMcScuigums (sp?): He plays a wider range of games but plays some fun-looking games.

Then there are the strategy gamers:
- Quill18
- Marbozir

And finally Christopher Odd who plays a wider range of games, with some pretty interesting ones.

I just checked ACG's patreon page. He is getting $7k/month from patreon. I do not know what their take is, but that's a good amount of money…

For some reason, he is saying he cannot continue to do videos on his homepage on YT. I think that's dishonest.

His $4k goal stated:

Complete Removal of the Youtube Leash
This goal will go a long way, if not fully allow me to not worry about youtube issues and its factor in my videos. And will allow for me to have more control on what videos to make. And most importantly make it easier to get retail sourced games which can be incredibly expensive if the company refuses review code.
There's no way I'm going to offer my money to that…
