Look, all you need is a dollar to start a PayPal account, using credit card anyway. Paying with posted cheques, money orders, and fund transfers is more complicated, so I didn't bother reading up. With a credit card, you give them a dollar, wait for your credit card statement, then plug in the activation number next to the one dollar deduction. After that, the dollar is given back and you are ready to go.

I've been chatting to Brad, and here are some simple facts for you all...

  • If forty regulars give one American dollar per month, Brad will break even.
  • If the same number of us get into the habit of PayPal'ing Brad five bucks every two months (that's a staggering, budget-destroying thirty dollars per year) he will be able to pay for his website expenses, and have a little bit left over as a bonus, a "thanks for running this site".

With the crappy exchange rate and the PayPal currency exchange fees being the way they are, I am planning to throw twenty bucks Brad's way twice a year, keep the fees down. It's a tiny amount of money, really. I know some of you can't afford even that much, but most of you can spare five or ten bucks every few months, surely? Okay, nag mode off.

I'm planning something similar. I want to contribute, and I also want to worry about it as infrequently as possible.

Brad, do let us know if the site's ever in danger of going under or anything.

The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!

I was thinking about suggesting a couple of "Donation Reminder" mailing lists to Brad, maybe a monthly one, a bi-monthly one, and tri-monthly one. Make them 100% voluntary (opt-in, for those who know the jargon) and just send out an email at the appropriate intervals saying "You asked to be reminded to donate to Strip Creator at this time. This is your x-monthly reminder email. Thanks!"

I know I would use it. Any thoughts?

I've been toying with the idea of giving people something they can subscribe to for a monthly or yearly fee or something. Maybe extra features (deleting? editing?), exclusive art, etc. I'm not really hurting bad at the moment, so I haven't really given it much thought. But it would give people a little bit of extra incentive and it would remind you when your subscription was up and so on.

I don't think most of the regular users need much incentive. We enjoy the strip creator and the community that has grown around it, and I think a good number of us would give money regularly if we could get an occasional reminder. Sure, if the fee was substantial, we would be justified in expecting something extra for our cash. In this case, though, it only takes a few bucks from a handful of people, so there is no big regular fee, so no real need for a bonus, in my view.

That said, if you were going to add anything for the subscribers, I suggest forum extras, like additional text font, size, and colour options, or the ability to set your own user comment any time you like. After all, anyone willing to pay a regular fee would almost certainly be a forum user.

Maybe a guaranteed forum-user character upon subscription. :)

Okay, I don't want to be a bad guy, but there is no possile way i could give money a)Because I'm a minor b)My parents never, ever buy or sell or do anything with money online c)I don't have a credit card.

Beleive me, if i could, i would. But i have a suggestion for all the minors on stripcreator. Send it via snail mail. Just have Fearless Leader(brad) give his address and stuff. That might be an idea.

I just settle for "I have no job at this time , and i still have a house and a cat to pay for."

When things improve , id opt in. For the moment , i have to just contribute dodgy strips to amuse you all.

...Trot and Cap'n Bill were free from anxiety and care. Button-Bright never worried about anything. The Scarecrow, not being able to sleep, looked out of the window and tried to count the stars.

I'm getting a little worried that my letter didn't get through to him. I'm not sure what all happens when you mail a letter from the US to Canada, but I sent an international money order to Brad on the same day I mail ordered a CD from Rhode Island. If it tells you anything, I got the CD already so I was a bit surprised to hear that the money order hasn't reached him yet.

Sure it was only $10 USD, but still... I don't have a whole lot of money to spend.

I really want to help you minors out. So here's what I'll do... You let me know the address of your school and send me a picture so I know what you look like, and I'll show up once a month and remove the Stripcreator donation from your lunch money fund. And just for good measure I'll pants you and throw you into the girls' locker room, or stuff your head into one of the toilets. Then it'll be all authentic and stuff.

You should keep track of how much everyone has donated, and then display that on one of the pages. Then we could turn it into a big contest and try to outdo one another.

Or maybe we could go door to door and sell candy as a fundraiser.

Or have a telethon.

Can someone please explain to me why there are a lot of comics kicking around with no titles? Is this a bug? Are you guys going out of your way to make them that way? What's the deal?
