Let me say welcome, and no worries about tbe 'well established community'. At any given time, its not that many, its pretty friendly, and I for one enjoy seeing new posts whenever I log in.

Thanks for stepping up Zack - maybe you'll inspire others to join Patreon.
I was hoping Bill Gates may have been lurking around here, but you're probably the next best thing.

I am thinking about posting some behind-the-scenes-stuff-that-may-or-may-not-ever-see-the-light-of-day on Patreon. I'm assuming only patrons can see my posts, but I'm still figuring it all out.

Stay tuned and thanks again
VGC

Got several new patrons the other night! Smashed my $20 goal!
I set a new goal, so let's try to keep it going!

I've started posting draft reviews on Patreon so my patrons can provide early feedback. I think it's a win-win.

Consider joining if you haven't already. $1 per month is all it takes.

I think my Patreon page has been a modest success. If nothing else it gives me a place to hang my dirty laundry: reviews in progress, scattershot notes, and reviews that have been in limbo for years. Stuff I don't have to edit or proofread.

Please consider pledging $1/month, exclusive content non-withstanding. If I can reach my goals I would consider trimming down the number of ads on the site. Thanks to the people who have already signed up!

I think it's been a worthwhile endeavor so far. Obviously it'll take time to grow, but I think the current result justifies going forward with it. I joined it to give back for all the years of free reviews I've used, but the $1 is worth it for the extra content too.

Exactly. Just signed up too. I've been coming here forever and have really appreciated what the VGC does and the members who frequent this site.
