  1. Avoiding paywalls sounds great for such project dedicated to freedom!

    Is that registration/login already implemented? If so, I cannot seem to locate it on morevnaproject.org. I hope it won’t break RSS/Atom feed as Patreon introduction did!

    (Also, are one-time donations via paypal still possible? I can’t find it on the page, but seem to recall doing it in the past)

    • Hey Matija! Glad to hear from you! I hope RSS/Atom feed works for you now. ^__^

      Regarding registration/login – I am still working on organizing things for that, so it is not visible on frontend yet. What I want to achieve – is to allow registered user to choose if he wants to access in-production content or not. Partially, this is needed because in the future I plan to set-up Discourse forums, which we will use for collaboration works. And it is logical to allow users have same account for this website and forums. So, for example, someone might want to register (to participate in work on forums), but don’t want to see content with spoilers. So, I need to make in-production optional and it should be easy to enable.

      Currently, you can register via this link, but consider that things are not complete yet ^__^ – https://morevnaproject.org/wp-login.php?action=register

      About donations page. Yes, one-time PayPal donations are still much appreciated! I am currently in the middle of heavy website reorganization, so some things may temporary disappear from time to time. ^__^” The donations page is here now – https://morevnaproject.org/donate/?type=all

      Also, at the top of the frontpage – https://morevnaproject.org/ – there is a indication how much donations collected in total for month (this includes donations from all sources, not just Patreon). So now it’s more clear how much we get. ^__^

  3. Yeah RSS works nicely, thanks! WP registration worked, and sends me to /wp-admin; don’t know if that is expected…

    BTW Paypal link wanted to charge a fee of $2.21 for $5 donation, which seems excessive (44% fee! I don’t remember them doing that before, at least they weren’t telling me), so I’ve chosen bitcoin this time… But you might want to check if that is normal for paypal donations?!

    • Hi! Thank you very much for your donation! In fact, this is the first ever donation we’ve got via BTC. ^__^

      Unfortunately, PayPal’s fee depends on combination of source/destination country of payment. For example, there are no fee (or very low fee?) to send money between residents of same country, but when sending to different country they charge a fixed fee + % (https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/what-are-the-fees-for-paypal-accounts-faq690). So, the fee got this high because of fixed fee part.

      Right now I am in the process of preparing papers for registering Non-Profit NGO. In this case we should get much lower fees for donations and some other advantages. On the other hand we I will get a burden of managing NGO, but at some point this is necessary anyway if we want to keep going seriously. ^__^

      Yes, this behavior will be different in the future. Thank you for testing!
