"this is why we can't have nice things"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Dec-07-17 AT 10:57 PM (EST)
 
So yeah, I'm not going to get into the details because frankly I haven't been arsed to achieve a complete understanding of them, but the short version is that Patreon jacked up their rates in a pretty nakedly grabby, vulture-capitalist-appeasing sort of way, and people were (quite justifiably) bailing, and I probably shouldn't really have opened one in the first place, so I closed it. GotW has been on sort of an unintentional hiatus anyway, so I was already a little uncomfortable about asking for money for it, and well, the hell with it.

I'm still going to go back to doing GotW in time (I hope!), I'll just go back to not getting paid for it while I'm at it.

Ironically, I never actually made a cent from it anyway! I was pretty much only covering 80% or so of the pledges I myself had made (and I'm going to have to re-evaluate that side of the process too, but that's not relevant here), which proves that I learned everything I know about making money on the Internet in the late 1990s. :)

P.S. Thanks to all who did pitch in, or, heck, even considered it, during the experiment. I may revisit the tip jar concept some other time, with some hopefully-less-sketchy mechanism.
