Would have jumped on this about 8 years ago when the drama was more frequent and more bottled here.

Sigs haven’t been a thing since like 2011. We want to provide this as a neat gift for folks that are willing to support us and this community. Curious though where you think the money to run this website comes from.

I understand that money to run the site isn't in abundance. Trust me, I get it; I work in that field. I also completely support the idea of a Patreon to help out with the costs. I think it's a clever approach, and one you don't see taken often with web forums (the space is flooded with "content creators").

Having titles as rewards is a good idea. Being a guest on the podcast as a reward is also great. But signatures should not be a payable reward. My original point still remains, regardless of how long ago it was, that it was a free part of the forum. Signatures are commonplace in any web forum, and should be free to use for everyone.

That's really my only point. Replace signatures as a tier 2 reward with something that should actually be exclusive. Outside of that, I'm completely on board with the approach.

Thanks for the feedback, and we appreciate the support, ChristNolan!
