LoadingReadyRun Patreon

Postby Lord Chrusher » 19 Dec 2014, 23:11

As you may all ready know, LoadingReadyRun can now being supported by Patreon.

At a minimum, we will get:
Tap Tap Concede weekly
One Crapshot a week
A LRRcast biweekly
LoadingReadyLive continues much as it has
The Mystery Box

Unskipable, Feed Dump and Friday Nights are under contract so they will continue as usual.

If more than $3000 is raised a month, we will get two Crapshots a week and the LRRcast becomes weekly.

If more than $6000 is raised a month, we will get six episodes of commodoreHUSTLE a year.

If more than $10 000 is raised a month, we will get a monthly Loading Time.

If each of people who backed the Kickstarter contributes the $5 minimum a month, the highest milestone will easily be unlocked.

Beside the $5 a month minimum, the only pledge level is $10 a month which will net you a one time thank you card. None of the content will be limited to only Patreon supports.

Ok, after Christmas I'll have a job and you bet I'll be dropping money here (was gonna go with Twitch subscription, but I can continue to live without the emotes :P)

I may have missed the Kickstarter, but I will NOT be missing the Patreon...

If they can strike a deal with Twitch about subscriptions, I'd probably bump it up more.

The Patron notes it is hoping to cover three people full time, is there going to be a fifth full time crew member? (Has there been and I just missed any talk of it?) Last I had heard the Kickstarter was covering two people's full time, with the Escapist deal also covering two full time. I was curious if that was the case and if so who the fifth member would be. (Paul, Gram, Kathleen & James being the four mentioned as full time at some point).

During the feed last night, I'm pretty sure it was said that the three full-time people covered would be Graham, Paul, and Kathleen. I'm pretty sure James still has his window job.

There was a time that the Escapist was paying enough to allow Graham and I to work full time (back when we had ENN and Daily Drop). Unfortunately, over the years there have been various cut backs and changes to the pay structure at the Escapist. Unskippable and Feed Dump are still well worth the time we put into them, but they do not make enough to support a full time crew member.

Anyone else having trouble watching the Patreon VOD on Twitch? I missed seeing it live so went to watch the replay and every time it hits the 10:21 mark the video cuts to the end of video splash screen. If I try to skip past that point the video just doesn't load.

Just me or are others having this problem too? And if it is a problem is there any chance we could have the replay uploaded to the Youtubes soon?

For reference if you didn't see the live broadcast here is the url for the replay:

The Patreon is currently quite close to $6000 a month which means more commodoreHUSTLE.

With the proximity to $6k, I feel it's going to be post-holidays patrons like you that will give us more CommodoreHustle, Fayili. :D

Re the Patreon Get post, I got a "Comment cannot be saved" message when I tried to add this, so I'm putting the comment here instead.

First off, re the one comment on the Patreon Get post - Wow, looks like a Youtube commenter escaped from the zoo.

Re your Patreon, I'm looking for my account login now. I could swear LRR and SFDebris are the two Patreonees I already support, but if I'm mistaken about LRR, I'll add you in.

Thanks so much for all of the entertainment you have provided over the years! Good times :)

As always, the community outdoes my conservative estimates. :D

I thought that James had become a full-time crew member for the YRR of LRR. Whenever they do something with "the full-time team" it's always seemed to be Graham, Paul, Kathleen and James. Maybe I'm wrong about that. Especially since all four of them were in the last bit where they said "we're not qualified to do anything else"

I suppose it's not any of our business what LRR's employment status is with their employees, but since they are basically asking us to fund the company, I'd love a little more transparency. That's probably just my desire to learn more about how this industry works, since they aren't driving around in Porsches, I'll assume it's still not making them rich, but I'm glad they still provide entertainment for us.

Well... James still gets calls from the window company during his stream... So there is that to consider. That's why I thought he was still part-timing that job. Maybe he's just working a bunch, full-timing LRR AND part-timing elsewhere?

I imagine before making anybody else full-time, they'll want to see how stable the funding from Patreon is. It's not unheard of for some to start out really strong, but then tail off before finding a price-range they consistently stay at.
