I feel a little awkward announcing this, since it’s a bit self-serving, but I have had people inquire about subscriptions & I do need to pay for all this… So…
I used to use a separate site for contributions. (It’s actually an open source project of mine that I used for this: https://github.com/JamesChevalier/donoku )
I just moved that feature into the CityStrides site itself. Along with this move, I’ve added the ability to contribute on a monthly basis.
This is live now at https://citystrides.com/become-a-supporter … The pricing tiers are all basically the same, so there shouldn’t be any surprises in that respect. I did set all the prices to be the US dollar equivalent to kilometers, though!
(I do want to clarify that contributing is not required and that using CityStrides is still free!)
I plan on adding more perks for being a subscriber - the ideas that I am kicking around so far are support access, no ads, early access to features, and input on features. One thing I’m trying to adhere to is the idea that non-supporters don’t get anything less, but supporters get more.
Let me know if you have any feedback.
Have fun out there!
