…and get shiny things!
I have just instituted the Patrons Scheme for the website. Basically there should be a new block on the left that will let you set up a $5/month donation to the site.
In exchange for this donation you will receive a very nice ‘Patron’ icon instead of the dice, a choice of Forum title and best of all, access to a hidden forum area containing information on the location of a Bit Torrent which will have the audio uploaded to it as soon as it is downloaded onto my laptop. (Session 21 is currently up there)
Once you have signed up it will take up to 48 hours (depending on when I am logged on) to sort you out with all your new shiny things, but then you are good to go!
Full information can be found in Patron Scheme FAQ
This scheme was set up to recognise the people who regularly donate to the site month on month as well as allowing those who want the files early a way to get them. The charge is primarily due to the fact that these files are uneditied and large in comparison and will consume more bandwidth.
The main audio files, edited as normal, will continue to be released as normal under the standard time scale.
If you have any questions post up here and I will do my best to answer them for you.
Hope you enjoy the Patron Scheme, let me know what you think 😀

*ping* Signing in…June 19, 2005 at 6:12 pm #564023
This sounds just about right for me, the perfect amount too!
Good idea.June 19, 2005 at 6:23 pm #564024
Two and so fast! I am having a small problem with the block! It is not sending me your chosen subtitles! I have Dragonkins, but not Cobs!
If there is a comments field when you sign up in PAypal, stick it in there from now on until I can get it fixed 😀
Otherwise it works great! Sent you an email Mr 37 asking for yours but you have a placeholder ones for now!

I chose “Creator of the World of Skell” as my title. I know, not very original but I’m just a simple old DM.
Can we change the title in the future through the paypal account?June 21, 2005 at 4:52 pm #564026
You can chenge the title at any time by dropping me a line (email or PM) and I will sort it out 😀
You may notice you new title is now in place 😀

A further update to the Patron Scheme.
I have heard from a few people that there has been rumours that this is the start of RPGMP3 becoming a pay site. Let me assure you that this is not the case. As you can appreciate, I am trying my best to provide a quality of service and would never consider charging for the downloads.
The people who choose to sign up to be Patrons get to participate with the site at a different level as well as having access to the audio at an earlier point then other members.
The audio will still continue to flow as normal 😀 I am just adding a new level to the equation to allow those that want to to support the site and gain something back from it 😀
Never fear! The free audio will continue as always 😀
Hope that has laid some fears to rest as you head off the enjoy Session 21 that I have just connected. (As a side note, Session 22 was played last night and is availbale to Patrons on the Bit Torrent in unedited raw form).
Continue to enjoy the site and don’t worry 😉

Yes, very cool!June 22, 2005 at 3:23 pm #564029
Hal, I made the payment – but it seems to have ignored me somehow. According to paypal the money has been sent. Could you please check it out? my name can be something simple like “Shathis of Tokyo”
I have no specific presumptions. 🙂June 22, 2005 at 8:59 pm #564030
Sorry about not making it clear. Due to the nature of the changes it cannot be done automatically! I have to do the updates manually as I am changing access levels on the site.
I have sorted you out and you should now have a shiny title, new icon and access to the Patron Forum where you can get information on the Bit Torrent.
Sorry for any problems and concerns.

Thank you Hal! And another good reason to become a patron (to everyone who is considering it), the sessions will become more common soon! I don’t want to speak for Hal as for how often, but I think we got some hint of that.September 30, 2005 at 3:01 pm #564032Wellard

well I have submitted my subscription.September 30, 2005 at 5:17 pm #564033
You should be connected up and have access to the Patrons Forums as well (they are at the bottom and are so super secret they do not even appear in the scroller 😉 )
If you have any problems let me know 😀 Thanks for becoming a Patron 😀
