Patreon page for our Donation Points system
Posted 12 June 2018 - 09:17 AM
Today we have launched a Patreon donation page to crowdfund a supplement to our donation pool so that our site users can also contribute to the system. Thus, whatever you, the users, raise on Patreon each month will go towards the next month's mod author Donation Points pool, on top of what Nexus Mods is already putting into the pool that month.
We're keeping it simple. There is one tier, with one purpose! Pledges go from you straight to our modding community and every penny you donate (except for Patreon and PayPal processing fees that we have no control over) will go towards the Donation Pool for mod authors.
We are a site built by modders, for modders, with the sole focus of providing the best support we can for our modding community of various video games. If you're a regular user of mods on Nexus Mods and would like to give something back to the mod authors who provide all their work free of charge, this is a great way to do it!
Any amount helps the mod author community and our one and only tier is open-ended starting from as little as $1.
Please be aware, this does not replace any sort of direct donation you can make to mod authors. If you'd rather donate directly to a specific mod author, nothing has changed! This is simply a way normal users of the site can donate towards all mod authors who have opted their mods into the donation system.

As is, one can give more than one donation, of course, was just wondering if some sort of automated subscription would be among the possibilities.

In response to post #60906152.Patreon lets you choose different types of payment systems. For Nexus the system is set up as a monthly payment.
hmm, for me, it'd be better to also have an option to donate just a one time sum, when i wanted to. i donate quite a lot around here, both straight and membership (love to give to Nexus itself), and i'd happily give to Patron...but i know from experience that i often forget about reoccurring things ike that. ran up a huge bill w/ Columbia Music club back in the day lol. moved and didn't get the mail, so forgot. had an xbox gold membership for 3-4 years...without even touching the xbox lol
so if you make a one time option (which i'm sure i'll use more than once), then i'd do that.
oh and maybe consider a "Wall of fame/ donators" type thing for authors mod pages. just as people like to see their name on an achievement rosters, or mod authors like to see their name on the hot files...i think donators would like to see their name on a list as well sometimes. gives a little extra motivation. years ago seemed like many mod pages had the "wall" but i don't see them anymore
