Is there any way to make a regular contribution automatically, would be happy to do that.

Actually looking it up in the Stripe Dashboard and their docs, it does seem like I can setup subscriptions on my end in the dashboard. Haven't tested it though, but you can read up a little about it here:

https://stripe.com/docs/billing/subscriptions/creating

 

Seems to set it up in the dashboard it has to be an existing account that has previously sent money. It can be set to automatically charge each month (or any set amount of days, weeks, months, etc..) or set to send you an email invoice to manually do it.

 

If you'd like to setup a subscription, PM me.

$15.00 from me.

 

 

Thanks guys/gals. Everyone appreciates your support. I've added you to the Donator group on the forum ( @Beave, since you were in Uploader, I added you as a secondary group, but if you'd prefer the purple tag as dominate I can swap em out just let me know).

 

If y'all are on Discord or IRC let someone of rank know and they'll add you to the donator and/or voice ranks in those chans too.

@Koby, if you're short on the IPS renewal and themes money drop me a PM or DM on Discord and I will fill in the missing amount. 👍

When I stop being lazy (and actually have the time to do it too) and apply the updates I'll check up to see when those actually expire and renew them. It's okay to let the themes subscription expire until updates are needed, but we need to maintain an active IPS subscription for the usage of the spam database & frequent security updates among other things.

Koby, it's all good.  The Uploader Title is fine for me, even I do more than that now :)

 

I was thinking we should make a Funimation/CrunchyRoll section or something like that.

Lol, hey, apparently the "next bitcoin" \o/.

 

Hmm, subway makes me feel anxious with all that red around. Wonder if it will be worth seeing which themes are used the most and least and then dropping the least used until there are like 3 or 4 left? @Koby - Are you privy to those stats?

We only have 5 we pay for. The three Carbons are just one theme which I've made color variations of... So we have Brave, Carbon, Subway, Titan, and Uniform. Titan is default, Brave is very popular based on hearing feedback (and it use to be our default theme for years), and people tend to donate specifically towards keeping Subway and Uniform around so if someone is willing to pay to keep it around, who am I to deny them? =P That really only leaves Carbon as the unknown theme. IPS doesn't actually list how many users are on each theme. I believe there is a plugin that does that though, but I have a feeling the vast majority of users aren't even aware we have a theme selector and/or just opt to remain on the default of Titan.

Change it to pink, you will love the Subway theme afterwards 😉

Use Stylus to edit Subway on your end to not load the images or simply use adblock on each image of the theme haha or switch to IPS Default theme.

Most of the themes actually are very light on images besides the background. Most of what use to require images on forums in the days of old are now done with special fonts and css.

Ahaha, true that, but I was joking about a text only theme.
