Hello everyone! :cheer:


This has been a long time coming, and it's finally live.

You can now support We Suck Less on Patreon!


Here is the easy-to-remember link to our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/wesuckless



With 2019 around the corner this is perhaps a perfect time to reflect on what the forum has meant to you in the past 4 years.

If you feel that's worth something please click this button and consider a pledge.


Become a Patron!

Also I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have ever made a donation to the forum in the past. Not only did it help offset some of the cost but most importantly, you made me feel like I was doing something right. So in return, I will make all of you an official Patron of WSL, forever. No matter the amount.


Thanks for keeping me going!

Truly yours,
Pieter

Hate to be complaining, but can we get the greens to match?

Not at all!
Bright Green = Active Patrons
Not-so-bright-green = former Patrons
green-that-somehow-fades-to-grey: former Patrons with more than 12 mths of non-patronizing
green-that-somehow-fades-to-grey-accompanied-by-some-funny-icon: WTF
Racism is so much fun...and sooo incorrect when being German...lovit...:-)

PS:
How dare you commenting on the color being 'yellow-ish' yourself?

@secondman: Pandoras box?...:-)

Alas no we can't. Patreon only allows a very limited palette for their fonts. Or so it appears. :pom:

EDIT: Figured it out. This better? :)

The discrepancy between the banner and the names is another story and they may will do (thanks Chad ;)) match at some this point.

It's not like I haven't hadn't given it any thought :)

@SirEdric Even without paying I am quite capable of patronizing. Just ask my two teenagers.

:)

Don't worry - the donators list is being compiled right this moment. More green names should appear some time this week.

One small note about that. While digging through the logs, I remembered that some of you have made an anonymous donation (donated while not being logged in). While I can track down most of you, if the email address used by Paypal is not the same as the one you have registered with here, there is no way for me to link the two.

So if you have made a donation in the past years but your name isn't green by the time I incorporate the donators list, please just send me a PM with your details and we'll sort that out...

The donators list has now been incorporated. Still a few anonymous donors left to figure out but we'll sort that as we go along...

More will be coming. Watch this space :)

And now for something a little different next...

Thanks, Pieter.

And the promised Patron area is now live!

Bit sparse in there at the moment but that will change of course. In the meantime you can read a little bit about, err, me.

:P
