Patreon is a service that basically allows you to become a "patron" of a project. Used by many website, community projects etc to achieve sustainability. It is similar to kickstarter but also different. Here is an example: https://www.patreon.com/posts/latest-womens-3185059 Now although majority of things on managewp.org are for free, there are a lot of things that require a lot of resource to further develop. News module, events and plugin module, mobile interface etc. Pledging support through Patreon may help evolve this community. Also if very successful could pay for moderator positions and ultimately for preparing the code for open-sourcing. These are just some examples of what the money would be used for, the entire project will remain strictly non-profit. Just wondering if anyone thinks this is a good idea, and would they support the project with say $1-$10/month?
