Now and then, Geek Native has Thank You gifts for site patron and thanks to Idyll Creation’s generosity there’s some more up for grabs.
You can read a little more about the Patreon program over at the Geek Native town hall, but I suspect you know the deal.
There’s one catch, though. Geek Native does not use Patreon to pay for technology costs, not even hosting costs.
Any money earned via Patreon goes back into the community. That might be a project like this where the site is buying some discounted Idyll Creation (thank you) goodies to hand out but the goal is to commission articles and art, paying a fair price for them.
If you’re curious about the gift program these little freebies are documented too. Patreon says they still processing the Soot Sprite backers but, er, I think they’ll be heading to the post office anyway. It feels like a frightful delay.
