    @timpritlove I'm talking about AdBlock in a broad sense, it's not only ABP, but AB, uBlock, hosts files etc.

      Did you know that FeedPress has an API? Today, we show you how simple it is [feedpress.it].

        So we added Stripe support as an alternative payment method to PayPal this week. You're welcome.

          @mahescho Did you try with another post? It looks like it didn't succeed to download the picture.

            @misterpoppet @noivad They have a daily goal on the right for their Reddit Gold feature. The number is not disclosed but there is a %.

              We still love ADN :)
              maxime
                That being said, thank you @dalton @berg and especially @voidfiles for your hard work. Without ADN @feedpress wouldn’t be the fraction of what it is today.

                  @zero Same thing. The progress bar on the right is a really nice feature.

                    @myfreeweb Let’s say somebody makes an awesome app and a million users create a free ADN account. What happens? We don’t know if we don’t have the numbers.

                      @myfreeweb I don’t see anywhere that we’ve paid the servers for a year. That’s what I’m asking for, clarity.
                      maxime
                        If ADN wants to keep the believers, they need to be open about the money they get, and how much they need to run the servers “indefinitely”. Reddit does that perfectly.
                        maxime
                          I really don’t see the sustainable business model of ADN now. As a developer, why would I use a platform that could shut down tomorrow if there are not enough paid accounts? ADN has free accounts, users of your apps will maybe pay you but not ADN.

                            @scottsmith @zero Exactly. I have a somewhat popular cryptocoin app on iOS, never got a single in-app donation.

                              @andi242 That could be a solution, yes. I’m not saying I won’t work anymore for ADN but I’ll be less motivated without the DIP.

                                The Developer Incentive Program shutdown is a deal breaker for me. I don’t love ADN enough to work on it for free, unfortunately. (And even the DIP didn’t pay my time spent on ADN projects)

                                  @zero Thank you Alex. You are also a big part of bringing URI.LV and @feedpress to the next level. :)
