    Subscribed but still have ads - how long does it take for them to stop? - oops - hang on - I lied!!!
    Yep - it seems to take about 10 minutes for Patreon to actually charge your card, at which point it sends a new update to our servers and you get the Subscriber role added to your profile.
    Thanks very much! Exciting stuff and happy to contribute

    I still think some the adds where ....enlightening.   I wonder what the rest of my family does with the internet sometimes.

    Is there ever likely to be a PayPal subscription option, I really don't need another online payment system….

    Yes, but at this point I can't see it being automated. Let me work out the details, and I'll put something up later in the week.

    No, that was one of Drew's alter-ego accounts.

    Just as an update on ads...I was contacted by Ezoic out of the blue, promising to beat the performance that AdSense and Monumetric gave us. Figured it was worth a conversation, although I was 90% leaning towards "Thanks, but no thanks" from the start, and told them that.

    Turns out, that was pretty much contingent on a small detail I didn't get until near the end of the conversation - essentially, they wanted to run all of our traffic through their servers so they could inject ads wherever their system determined they would be best (subject to constraints I could define).

    They didn't accept that this represents a security risk, particularly given that people often exchange bank details via PM, and they reckoned that my concerns about it were "a fantasy".

    Interesting sales technique, that. Also, that'd be a "nope".

    This kind of sales speak always makes you wonder what else the salesman is hiding, or doesn’t understand.
