Support the Kings Herald on Patreon

The Kings Herald is only made possible through your support.
By | 43 Comments | May 12, 2020

The support for the Kings Herald’s launch has been incredible.  After months of planning, we were a bit nervous to see how you guys would respond when we finally went live last month.   We shouldn’t have been.  Despite the new digs, it feels like you guys never left.  During our first few days, our servers were straining under the amount of new registrations and visitors.  We had to upgrade our hosting twice in that span just to keep up.  It was stressful as hell, but also incredibly encouraging to see just how much support we have.

We want to make sure we can keep this site and community growing and thriving for years.  We obviously don’t have the backing of a multi-million/billion dollar company anymore and so we are dependent on your support.  We also didn’t want to paywall our site because the whole point is that everyone can read and participate.  That’s why we decided to launch a Patreon page where fans could voluntarily support us.  We had this page go live with little fanfare when we launched as we focused our efforts elsewhere, but now we’re happy to announce we have fully fleshed it out with several tiers and various perks for Patreon supporters.  Many of you have already signed up despite there being no real perks at all yet, and we’ll make sure to retroactively apply the new perks for you.  Some of those tiers include physical perks like Magnets, bumper stickers and even a Patreon exclusive shirt.  All Patreon members will also get a special badge on their user profile and a special spot on our Donation thank you page.  We’ll constantly be looking for ways to add additional value to your membership, so be on the lookout for more surprises and benefits in the future. You can see the full benefits for each tier when you visit our Patreon.

Thank you once again for making the launch of the Kings Herald so wonderful.  With your support, we hope to be around for a long time to come.

I’m been thinking about this too. I like the site. I was a long time reader of Sactown Royalty without ever becoming a member. What is the burn rate per month .. what do you need?

What kind of zanyness is this… an article asking for support with out any links to the place where said support can be given…. who runs this site any way….they clearly need to crack down on the editors. 😛

How do you expect anyone to find the link if it is the same color text as the regular non link stuff. I had to go back and hunt for it when you said one was there by moving my mouse around the page.

Malrock is right; I don’t see the links stand out either. Not like in your screenshot, that’s for sure (using Microsoft Edge).

Cookies are boring. But if you want to send me a lifetime of Heineken and Hummus, I’m definitely good on that account!

OMG, that shirt is siiiiiick.

I signed up as a Patreon when the site first launch, but now I will probably consider increasing my donation level. Not sure if I can commit to the highest level juuust yet (need to review my monetary situation first), but it’s definitely something I want to aim for!

Regardless, I am more than happy to make monthly donations to keep this site running. Back when we got the news about STR replacing the writers, a bunch of the commenters (including myself) said we would be willing to donate to get an independent site running, and I’m happy to follow through on that.

The shirt and magnet look quite nice–great job with those!

I bet if you put on a telethon the donations would come flooding in. Imagine Greg doing a song and dance–that would absolutely bring in 1000’s of new patrons.comment image

Many of us would love to see a “Greg Ruined My Marriage” t-shirt, but that would be horrible–HORRIBLE–if Greg’s wife wore that just to mess with him.

Currently I’m in the middle of watching “Other People” starring Molly Shannon that takes place in Sacramento. So far it’s really heavy and depressing, with a few bits of comedy sprinkled in. They show the less glamorous suburbs of Sacramento rather than those beautiful Fabulous 40’s homes. But it’s still comforting to see those suburbs in a movie.

Guys and galls, you should do this if only for the privilege of complaining about an article and jokingly demanding your money back, and then realizing that it may now actually be a thing!

If there wasn’t need for social distancing, you could set up a carnival with raffles……maybe a dunk tank (with Bradley sitting on a swing above the water tank, and 5 softballs per player)….

….$5 for Aykis to guess your weight/age….

…Charity Dating: highest bidder gets to attend a Kings game with Fippin….

……have your picture taken by Kimani……

Greg already sent my wife an “I love you” card. Now my marriage is ruined.
