is there a way to make a single donation instead of a recurring?
This is the route I want to go. one-time donations. I think you get more donors this way. once or twice a year bump the fund drive.

Same here. Heck, I'd be willing to pay for a month once a year. Let us know if that is an option before I sign up please.

I have a paypal account that the mods are using to send their monthly portion of the hosting. But posting a PayPal or something similar has a vibe more along the lines "Hey, Give me Money." and less "Support this community" like Patreon did.

They're probably the same thing and i'm overthinking it, but that's why I chose Patreon.

Yeah, go with what works best for you. I will do a 1time donation, and then cancel next month.

Sorry, just noticed these threads.

I spend most of my days on a comedy forum, and their tactic is having monthly subscriptions. Two levels - gold and silver - and for gold you get custom member title and a few other bits and bobs, silver you get just a few bells and whistles. I'm sure a few people would be prepared to pay $5 a month or whatever for those things. (sorry if this has already been brought up)

If, indeed, we are patrons, I will hold out for a Masters Tournament pimento cheese sandwich. Get 'er done, mods!
