In order to better integrate with our services we’ve enabled Discourse (Forum) integration. By default this will automatically add users to the patron group who have the same email address on their forum account as their patreon account .
Being a part of the patron group entitles you to access:
As is the same with the Discord #supporters channel.
These channels can be used to talk about your perks, potential new perks, and they also act as a dedicated and exclusive channel for supporters to talk. I try to achieve a 100% response rate to queries sent to me in these places.
Well, the server costs are over 10x that price. So people not being able to afford it is not really relevant. Reducing the price wouldn’t help us because we’d end up being even further under the monthly costs.
I also feel like once the server gets updated to 1.4.4 or a lot of the lag gets fixed, there will be more people considering buying patreon. Currently, there are more staff members than Patreon users, the only two who have a Patreon thing is Lmfoa and someone else, and the supporter chat here on the forums and in discord are basically dead.
