Financially Supporting the Farms -

$20 was apparently determined to be the pre-determined baseline for recognition for financially supporting the farms back when KF made the move from being a forumer piece of shit to the site it is today. I think it is fair to acknowledge more work goes into this place than ever before. the last month with the shut downs and all is proof of that. It is probably fair to accept a few other streams of revenue at the farms. In this thread we can suggest a few ideas... but it will likely devolve into suggesting Katsu become a backpage tranny whore and Null giving up on his addiction to BIG, BLACK DICK. I will kick in a few ideas.

1. Tiers of support banners. At museums and other non-profits there is uaually multiple tiers of support. Our standard is "True and Honest Fan". How about creating a few extra tiers to see how much of a shut-in we really are?

2. Banner ads. I can deal with it.

@Thundersteam suggested an idea that it would be nice to see @Flowers For Sonichu present.

He can post it here if he wants, but I told him to talk to Null about it first. I don't think it's a good idea worth sharing.

We mostly suggest that for her own benefit.

I suggested this in chat earlier but I would be down to pay $10 for an archive of banned users' PMs.
The problem with that would be that it would tear all their dramas in the open, affecting people who haven't been banned already.

I really like this idea, also you could have banners themed after Lolcows other than Chris / or have donator rankings along the same model as the old forum user ranks based on how much in total you've donated.

Null flips shit at the idea of putting ads on KF even tho anyone who isn't already using Adblock is a piece of subhuman garbage who doesn't need protecting. Just put furry porn banner ads up already.

Isn't that why such ads wouldn't generate terribly much revenue? Are there still suckers who will pay a flat rate for ads?

I generally feel like the best way to defang drama is to expose it publicly so that everyone can laugh at everyone else's stupid shit and then we can all move on with our day. Unfortunately, it rarely goes down like that.

One random idea : we have artists of various skill levels here, one idea would be to hold like charity drives where the artists let people on the forum commission them for artwork, and they'd give a part of the profit towards the forum. Then forum trophies could be given out to the artists based on how much money they'd raise for the forum.

Is there a way for one user to buy Supporter status as a gift for another user? I think that would be an interesting idea to implement.

Or maybe someone could pay double the fee for Supporter status to revoke the status of a user they have a huge grudge against.

Basically, we need to figure out how to Monetize Our Autism.

Autistic slapfights between users have never been terribly entertaining unless one of them becomes permanently halal as a result.

The occasional bloodletting to flense a pocket of infection is one thing but I'm not sure that would lead to anything good. More importantly, it would devalue supporter status and make less people willing to spring for it in the first place.

Paying to change someone's avatar or for custom banners for yourself or others would allow for more good natured autism.

Yes, you can do that already.

The way that would turn out would be a conflict involving @*Asterisk* and a user he dislikes wherein said user tries to revoke his supporter status, and being asty as ever * will bitch said person out and either throw a massive fit or dump tons of money on the forum to revoke the other guy's supporter account (possibly both). Repeat ad nauseam.

Overall it would be really gay.

what if we figured out some way to make shitposting lolcows mine for bitcoins for us? like, make Verified users have to click a Captcha button that also makes their computer do a little bitcoin algorithm everytime they post

like even if its a tiny fraction of a bitcoin per post imagine a user like marijan mining we'd be rich in a week

we would call it the Quantum Autism Generator
