I dunno, spend more time on subreddits I like? Reddit's OK, but it's not the same as a forum and it doesn't have cool smileys. Surely there has to be one super-rich goon left who can afford to just buy the whole thing for an inflated price so it never goes away?

It wouldn't even need to be compulsory. Just make it voluntary, give a cool reward like a custom gang tag or plat icon for different tiers ($5/$10/$25). I know nothing about coding or the forum software or anything like that, but it doesn't seem like that would be beyond what we basically already have.

This.

I would no problem click one time to patreon-style donate monthly a few bucks rather than having to think about something to buy especially when I already have everything on my account.

Give people who donate access to unobtrusive stuff like A DRAWING OF A SPACESHIP THAT'S RIGHT LOWTAX WHERE'S MY SPACESHIP

Change the front page to the forums. Combine some elements of the front page onto the front page of the forums. That will get a lot more new traffic to the forums which will give Lowtax more money.

Doesn't patreon take a cut? Lowtax already has a system in place to accept credit card transactions. Is it difficult adding a subscription aspect to the system? I honestly don't know.

Like I legit spend more Money on beer on a random week than I spent on the forum all these years, I'd be fine with paying a few bux a month. Do a few reward tiers like every month you get a Avatar change for the 5 buck monthly etc.
