About donations...

Maybe some of you noticed that LowRes NX is currently not on the App Store. That's because I didn't pay the yearly 99$ to Apple yet. I was going to do it, but because of some inconveniences it didn't manage to do it yet.

Don't worry, it will come back, I'm not out of money and I like to have my stuff in the App Store. But currently I have different priorities and I was thinking...

My yearly income with LowRes NX is much lower than the costs I have for Apple and the hosting of the website. I'm not doing this for the money and I really enjoy this community. Buuuut:

Would you think it's annoying if I asked here once a year for donations? Like Wikipedia, but a bit less annoying? ;)

i was checking the donation options and this 😭

Yes, the in-app donations use the App Store, so they are disabled too.
I would give the option for paypal here on the website.

really sad, i only have appstore money right now (unless you find 0.10€, my current paypal balance, a convinient price, but that would be a fucking joke 😂😭🙏)

I'd prefer to see this site stay online. Set it up. How much do you need?

Sounds good. 😁

I will try to make a donation when I can.

I personally don't like PayPal...

... that said, I want to do regular donations... but i DO forget, with my super hectic demands, I even occasionally forget to eat, but fortunately my tummy rumbles and reminds me...

So, I have an idea, how about a 1st of the month, or maybe quarterly, "donation rally" as a fun reminder.... you could just post "Donation rally, any help greatly apprecitared" and donations can be kept private so those less able won't feel badly ;)

... just a thought... :)

Also, I don't remember what the 3 amount options were... but how about a nice wide range of $1, $25, $99

Sometimes $1 donations can add up quickly, and others might be happy doing the big figure.. ;)

I think the current donation options are ok, I would feel bad if someone payed 100$ 😮

was8bit 2023-04-10 20:05

... well, as soon as you get the app donations up and running, I'll make myself a schedule for donating so i won't forget ;)

DJMoffinz 2023-04-23 05:14

I'd love to help keep this site and the iOS app up in any small way I can. I do agree with was8bit about a small donation option, like just a dollar. Let us know about any further deveopments!

Timo 2023-04-24 07:02

Current status: I‘m trying to find my credit card which must be in some drawer 😮
(Apple developer program can only be payed by credit card, I though paypal would work too)

was8bit 2023-04-24 10:39

I have a few people waiting for the app to be back on the store ;) currently they can't play all the games online, and one is interested in the programming side...

schraf 2023-06-21 22:06

Are there current ways to donate outside of the App Store?

Timo 2023-06-22 21:03

The app is back and you can donate now :)


was8bit 2023-06-23 02:55

Yeay :):)

was8bit 2023-06-24 04:00 (Edited)

But, inside lowres donation, it is still saying ERROR ERROR ERROR

no links to donate with ...

I’ll need those as I can only use Apple Pay :(

Timo 2023-06-24 06:38

Yes, I don’t know why it doesn’t work yet. Don’t know when I’ll have time to debug :/

was8bit 2023-06-24 12:54

:( .... i understand, my time is very limited as well... i will use those links once they are up :)

Timo 2023-06-25 13:49

Seems to work now, I had to accept a new contract.

was8bit 2023-06-25 15:02

Yep, I see all options now :) thanks so much :):)
