Hi, sourcehut team (if this is right place for it). When I started learned more about free software, I began to help their developers financially. Many organizations and people have some advantages to their paid users, but srht does not have this option (and I can understand this). But I think it to be cool to have some banner (like a have from FSF https://static.fsf.org/nosvn/associate/crm/2698809.png) that claims that I support your project with something money. -- 魔法少女リルテチヅデですよ。
Hello! I would prefer to avoid having something which can effectively signal the user's economic class. Not everyone has the luxury of being able to donate, and we consider them equal patrons of the platform all the same. This will become especially true once payment is mandatory, and the lack of such a banner would signal that you had to request financial aid to use sourcehut.
Would you consider, once payment is mandatory, to add an "early adopter" badge of sorts? I think something like that would serve as appreciation for people who've stuck with sourcehut, and less as proof of donation.
