@chrisg Sorry, poorly worded. “Incorporate” used here in the sense of “start adding posts about.” At the moment (as maybe poorly communicated by the About page) it’s sites with a subscriber model only, which I worry may be too limiting.
@chrisg On reflection/provocation (HT @staticmade) there are plenty of indie makers/producers/artists (still struggling with terminology, a bit) using the “pay-for-things-I-make” model to support themselves. Seems shortsighted to occlude them.
@tullyhansen Ah. If you're going to start including other types of support methods, maybe each person should be "tagged" by type (Subscription, Donation, eBook, RSS Sponsorship, etc). Split pages by these tags, rather than the current system of prices.
@chrisg Yep, that’s the plan. It’s coalescing in my head (just now) as “a directory of individuals supported by individuals,” so I feel subscribers/buyers of product/donaters all qualify (maybe RSS sponsorships not so much, as these tend to cost more).
@tullyhansen Of course, I could see where my idea could get out of hand. I mean, there are all sorts of things you could do, like allowing "customer reviews" of each site, but I don't know what fits best here. It's a tough design problem.
@tullyhansen The more I think about it, this project is beginning to look like a more-inclusive version of Read & Trust. Is that too far off-base?
How open-ended is this thing going to turn out anyway? There are many, many creators out there.
