@Violettica @anthk @capefeather @z428 @diodelass of course, we can gain users Is by offering things that they cannot. For example a space for NSFW content which anti sex worker laws are chasing off the big corporate platforms. Spaces free from harassment or another singing were pretty good act as Nazis band and they're instances good new Federated as opposed to being largely ignored
@Violettica Yes, I know. Yet a lot of this reasoning always feels a bit like everyone is entitled to get everything for free(beer) on the internet, even while most people *of course* expect to be paid for their work. There seem very few ways to make all this (no payment, no ads, yet large amounts of professional grade content) work. :/

@z428 @Violettica @anthk @capefeather @diodelass patreon seems to be the best thing so far for a funding content creation. To be honest I can't really blame people for not paying for stuff because back when I was a teenager I literally wasn't allowed to so paying for stuff was a literal non-starter. Even answered adult with her own credit card I still don't have quite the kind of funding to pay for a lot of stuff.
@DJWalnut Well I think patreon is a good approach for many, but then you'd be fine using services such as #pixelfed, #peertube or the #fediverse as well where ads aren't a problem at all. But using ad blockers to still see the movies on YouTube for free and *still* ranting about them seems somewhat unfair.
@Violettica @anthk @capefeather @diodelass
@Violettica True. I'm also increasingly looking at using services that offer such a model. Maybe something like the micro payment approach in #Brave browser also could help here. It seems important however to get consumers and creators to see each others needs here.
