Hey everyone,

As you may have heard, Project Wonderful, the ad-site we serve our voluntary advertisements with, shut down a few months ago. If at this point you got a bit of an ominous chill running down your back, don't worry. CF isn't going anywhere, and we're also not about to start charging for premium features either. All features on the site are accessible to everyone, and will remain free.

However, while I don't have any problems continuing to foot the bill if need be, it's obviously a better idea in the long run to have the site at least be semi self-funded. Plus, if at some point there ever actually is some leftover money, I can use it to exchange for goods and services, they do that even over here in germany.

So as the title says, I've decided to start a patreon for the site. Please note that while there technically are rewards, they are not what one might call "useful". The main reward is that everyone gets to use ComicFury for free, with no ads on their sites. Would that be the case anyway? Shush man, I'm trying to make a pitch here, jeeze

I also don't really plan to use patreon for it's community features, I feel like I should say that, since it's not how people normally use it. We got a community here already, I see no point in trying to split it up. So uh, basically my pitch is that you can back an empty patreon and get nothing in return. You know it doesn't really sound like a good idea, saying it out loud like that, to be honest. Are you sure about this?

ComicFury patreon!! great job, you almost did it, now just click this text

Also, apparently if you are under 18, you need to have permission from your parents to use patreon. Don't ask me how it works. parents? permission?? i've never even heard these words before in my life


ps: getting everyone their star powers might take me a bit to figure out

But where's the ludicrous $5000 a month tier?? I want the option for my name to be displayed in flashing lights at the top of CF, kyo

Mwahahahahaha. I am the first patron. I'm special! >:D

Nah but for reals, I really appreciate the work you put into this site, and it's without a doubt the best host I've found. All too happy to help support that.

Is this for real? Wow. I guess I kind of saw it coming. It takes money to run a site. In the future, I will definitely support.

it's for real but no pressure, no features of the site will be locked behind patreon tiers or anything

Also? I need to say I'm enjoying the implication The Angry Frenchman is the gator's father or something.

Edit: And the description on the $10 is quite correct, moon power pretty much means you're Sailor Moon, but only on this forum, and who wouldn't want that.

Oh yeah I should totes mention this, my friend eliot drew that great banner image! I promised him a cut from the first months profits, so I guess I threw him a real curveball by releasing this patreon 4 days before the end of the month

You can put CF ads on my comic too. I have no problem with that kind of support.

Could we use our own custom power banners? You know, like Bud Light power, New York-style pizza power, White

This totally opens the door to the perception that financial incentives can adjust the actions of the mods.

...

I'm OK with that.

Hewwo, i gib u monee

Seriously, though, it sucks that PW shut down like that, but I’m happy to chip in if it helps keep the site running. It’s the best host I’ve found so far, with none of the skeeziness of Tapas or the coldness of Webtoon. I handed u sum dollaroonies, hope they help.

Edit: words

What about having a one off donation option for those who can't donate monthly?

this is going to sound stupid, but i don't really want to do that because it always makes doing my taxes such a nightmare

it's totally cool if you don't wanna/can't do the patreon thing though, I 100% understand that

instead of making the sellout power banner green, you should make it green day.

I will focus 10% of my developer time each month on researching whether birds are like fleas for trees

They are not.

Your research is done.
