Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.
I know that we've talked about Kickstarter- but what about Patreon, Payhip, and other smaller sites to support smaller artists? Any that you support that you want to call out (Tabletop or other)
I know I run a site that supports PbEM and PbP with mailing lists, wikis, websites, etc, and it took a long time for me to feel comfortable even asking for support. CPanel changed their method of charging for their software, and it increased my hosting costs to the tune of $10 a month. Just by asking, I've been almost able to cover that increased cost.
I've always been very supportive on Patreon, but also found out there are a wide variety of sites that people use including:
I don't use patreon even though i've been considering it for quite a while now. I admit I'm a bit scared of monthly subscriptions that pay automatically, and I'm not sure how much I can toss at creators at the moment.
@Moe Tousignant - I'd never heard of podpledge- thanks for that shout out! And I totally agree about itch- I've been getting used to it, but it's definitely a different paradigm being geared towards digital gaming and just being repurposed for tabletop.
I do like that it's specifically designed for podcasters and has a lot less of the limits of Patreon. Like you can do things like giveaways and swag. There are some major board game podcasters that use it.
