Alternate donation methods?
I used to have a regular donation setup through paypal but unfortunately I had to close my paypal account (fuck paypal). I'd still like to donate through just about any means that isn't paypal, and I was wondering if there are other options or if some other method could be setup possibly.

RE: Alternate donation methods?
Hey! First off, thank you so much for your donations, it goes directly into the hosting account and so far we're paid for the next two months!

I've been meaning to create a Patreon, as well as getting the bitcoin wallet back up and running. I'll be able to really focus on a solution this weekend; if anyone has other ideas besides the two mentioned, feel free to let me know!

Thanks,
Pleeb.

Patreon is usually really good, but it's normally for content creators so it could be weird. I guess you can label it "Education", and it'll work for money, but idk if I would get carried away with the whole patreon-y aspect. Like, rewards and formality are kinda bad in this scenario, ultimately it'd just be a conduit for payments when it's normally a site full of cool features (heavily focused on exclusivity)

bitcoin is probably a good idea I guess, just have no idea how many people actually use it

Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas. I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written.

Did someone mention bitcoin? I'd avoid it. Did you know it is an independent floating currency? If you are into untraceable transactions, you are probably like, "wow, really?" But if you are not, you are probably like, "that sounds dangerous."

Usually when a company accepts bitcoin, they almost immediately exchange it for another currency upon receipt.

RE: Alternate donation methods?
We used to accept bitcoins, but over the course of 3 years there were no donations.  I lost the bitcoin wallet in a crash anyway.

EDIT:
Would anyone be interested in using bitcoins if I get such a wallet back?

Something else we can try is Google Wallet; I've sent money with that before.

I think Paypal accepts one-time payments via credit-card as well, for those who don't want an account.  I'm open to other ideas too Smile
