Now that the site is profiting, it's just a matter of times for the DMCA takedowns.

What Metal64 said. Their safest bet would be an in-house donation system but that'd probably not get as much attention.

Truth be told, I wouldn't have minded making a donation, but monthly payments feels like a big commitment.

Also the way the Patreon itself is and everything about its announcement felt like it was handled poorly. Taking out subforums and already existing features, really?
Also claiming that the money would be used for things like "professional articles" sounds sketchy, it's a community of fans for fans, fans make the articles, you don't hire writers for that. And of course, there is also preventing anyone to comment on it, which only makes it seem even more shady.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, and keep thinking that Nightcrawler didn't turn shady all of a sudden and that instead he just handled things very poorly this one time... and like I said, would he have made a nice explanation on how the site needs money to be hosted, or that it needs help for a new theme or whatever, I'd have donated right away, but like everyone says, contributing to the patreon feels like you might be contributing to the possibility of DMCA takedowns.

I think he should probably backtail on this and use a regular donation system. I believe it'd also give more money to the site that way, especially if he does it now which could change the mind of all the people who consider this Patreon shady.

Honestly this guy looks like he's more concerned to get revenge than to solve the problem

I don't go on RHDN anymore ever since the Patreon page came around, I kinda wanna see RHDN be destroyed. I'm good with what P is doing.

Why do you want it that RHDN be destroyed?

I want to see it get destroyed because now the site is making a profit, it's only a matter of time that the big companies will have the site shut down.

I hope that someone manages to back up all of the hacks, patches, translations, and other stuff, just in case. Id hate to see all that good stuff go to waste if something were to happen to ROMHacking.

this guy's an idiot really if he thinks he'll take romhacking.net off the face of the earth

technically there is "nothing" wrong. sure the money thing is probably not very good, not going to argue that ... i seriously miss the "bonsai" theme i always used. ...everything "except" the forums no longer loads properly in Internet Explorer anymore because of this stupid default theme.

it was perfectly 100% fine with "bonsai" ...

anyway there not doing anything wrong, IPS patches are NOT illegal... roms in "public forums" are what's wrong... but not ips patches... so that guy isnt going to get anywhere...
