Kia ora whānau

Since 2007, Yellow Fever have provided a platform for football fans (and relatives of aspiring players) to talk all things football. We’ve expanded our media empire, firstly with In The Zone podcast, and then latterly with the officially slightly more successful, Phoenix City podcast (standing on the shoulders of giants).

Unfortunately, both the website and the podcast incur ongoing running costs.

We’ve done our best over the years to self-fund these through merchandise sales and online advertising. Mostly this has worked well, but there have been times where there has been a shortfall which we have covered out of our own pockets.

With the demise on traditional online advertising (thanks google and facebook!), financial shortfalls have become more regular to the point where merchandise sales can’t keep up.

To provide a more consistent income stream to pay for our regular costs, we’re looking to you to make a contribution through our Patreon page. Find it at https://www.patreon.com/phoenixcity

We’ve sent up a bunch of tiers with different rewards. They start at US$1 per month.

By becoming a patron you’ll be covering:

  • ongoing website hosting costs.
  • ongoing podcast hosting costs and replacement podcast gear.
  • Tifo costs when we get some inspiration (See: Lazer Kiwi).

And just to confirm, the back office crew do not, and will not, receive any kind of remuneration.

So please consider it. Please!

... how exactly do you embed images in DMs?

EDIT: done it on Twitter, can't see how on the forum or on Patreon

Ha good point. Either upload the image to tinypic (or similar) and send me the link in DM. Or just forward your confirmation email with your forum name to Dale@yellowfever.co.nz

Yes. Or to a debit card. Details go to Patreon, rather than YF. They are a well established platform that does this kinda thing.

The solution I've found is to use PayPal. You have to give them your credit or debit card details, but once you've got that set up, you can tell any other website "charge it to PayPal", so you don't have to spread your details all over the Webz

Good question. It's roughly $150 pm for various website and podcast hosting costs. Then need to add on any podcast gear that needs replacing which is pretty variable.

Hopefully it won't be quite so ironic though.

Okay got that any idea what charges are added. Also why the need to use $US dollars rather than set something that's going to add additional charges. I for one would much rather contribute the full amount to YF rather than pay fees to the bank and incur even though small, exchange rates.Not trying to be smart just asking.
