thirty bees is on Patreon, become a patron today!
True. Hopefully we can get it going where we don’t have to worry about funding.
It will take time but I’m sure it will get there. The growth 30bz (and thus the support) will build upon itself and gain momentum over time.
Thanks for adding info to the new backer level.
The newly added info seems like it might not quite fit between the level below and the level above. I’m sure people are contributing more to support the project than to get the rewards but I thought I’d mention it.Not sure if I misread the Patreon page or if it’s already been fixed but either way my previous text is no longer applicable.
@lesley How many downloads of TB are there the last few moths? How many forum users are here?
Is it an idea to make it a email registered download at the TB download side to get more users info / Patreons. There are less site where you can dowload software whithout leaving an email account so why not on the TB downloadsite. If you run a commercial bussines what is 10 dollars p/m to keep your bussines running on a better system with more free modules, less bugs and more support then PS. With Presta I spend lots of euro’s on module and Theme to get things work as i want. With TB jus TB + Transformer template. We soon need more Patreons too get TB to a higher level.
We cannot release actual numbers, but things are starting to grow tremendously. Currently no, we are not going to collect that data on download.
I agree, I am hoping we will get a lot more patrons this year as the word gets out and people start migrating and upgrading at the beginning of the year.

Couldn’t agree more
Thanks everyone who donated on Patreon! I just received it and will use it to spend some extra time on improving the update to 1.0.4. For a couple of weeks I wanted the update to be extra flawless, because just flawless doesn’t seem to do it for everyone. Thanks to the donations we are able to make that extra push!
Keep up the good work.
But it’s a shame we are not more than 19 contributing ☹️
@Briljander Yeah… But lets wait for the ad in the backoffice. I hope then the number will increase. Also V1.1 with new features could bring a nice boost.
@wakabayashi I don’t know if you noticed, but we merged the heart of webp into the .4 release the other day. It will not be enabled until 1.1.x but we put it there for people that like to experiment.
Have you thought about putting a PayPal donation button on ThirtyBees forums / website itself? A lot of people don’t like the idea of a signed up service like Patreon or whatever because however you paint it it is a subscription service. A donation button may bring in extra cash to support the recurring monthly costs, after all the crowdfunding for Elastic Search was a good success.
Great idea @DavidP
