Yeah, he said his lawyer friend was going to help him do it two years ago and then yelled at people about how much work he does for the fund when someone asked for an update a year ago.

Just had that sinking feeling that I'm pretty sure I signed onto the Goonfund Patreon a couple of years ago, after a friend got helped out by it, and I was thinking "what the hell, I can throw a few bucks at this"

I should probably check that!

Iím p sure the one dude is not getting a grand a month, I think he asked for over a grand over time in smaller chunks.

I know you're wrong because giving someone a recurring $1000 payment is absolutely the stupidest way things could be managed and thus must be what is happening.

I'm glad there are people who needed help and got it, but at this point in the forums history are we not all part of some lesser clique/discord already? Like if you really need help you can ask your inner circle of friends for some help. I don't think having a GoonFund is in the best interest of anyone involved except the person running it

Works for me, but only if you promise, nay, swear a sacred oath not to tell what charity gets the money and how much. I just like not knowing things. Keeping things light up in the old noggin.

Yeah, you put it better than I did. Although itís *possible* that someone here has your best interests at heart, itís incredibly unlikely and even if you are absolutely desperate this is probably the absolute last place you should turn other than like, 4chan.

E: good rule of thumb is that if someone is expressing concern via PMs is probably legit. If theyíre doing it in a post just lol

explaining is endorsing
If the argument against allowing any inquiry or transparency, and that when plinkey loses their poo poo over simple requests for info, is that they are running it at a loss, putting their own money up when they have too, and simply reporting all the patreon money as income and paying taxes on it, there are two options

1- The goon fund is being run by a person so stupendously poor with money management it needs to be shut down for their own sake
2- There's a minimum amount of sketchy poo poo going on that were anyone to shine a light on it it doesn't go well for the fund or the person in question

This fund is taking in more then most people make in a year.

There are about 12 requests a month for money. Or 12 posts saying an email has been sent. Do you have to post to make a request?

i just bought goon.fund

stand by for a new email address, i think my old hosting litterally just disapeared

Plinkey posted:

OK, new rule.

No posting your paypal.me/venmo/whatever in this thread, go through the email address, if you PM me I'll redirect you to the email address (which will be changing in the next day or two)

Please make a paypal.me or venmo if you don't have one, if you do venmo, I'll send you my venmo for you to send a request incase you fat finger your venmo or whatever in the email (we've sent money to randos a few times which is unrecoverable)

Talking about setting it up as a non-profit

So, talked to my mom's husband and I need an attorney to set up a non profilte

so thaats where we're at

Is getting money from paypal directly too

Plinkey posted:

just PM me or send an email to the stanknuts email address do not send money there, i have no way to get it, and it'll sit in paypal limbo until it gets returned to you like 30 days later or something, its strickly a semi-anonymous email for people that don't have PMs.

I can give you the paypal address that it's all hooked up to and that way patreon doesn't take their 4% or whatever if you want to just do a one time.

also thanks to everyone that signed up, amazing!

Regarding the charity status on 1/11/21

Plinkey posted:

um it's jeff's lawyer so they kinda knew what was going on

e: basically i have a bunch of paperwork to fill out/read later today, need to set up a PO Box and some other admin poo poo, but I should be able to file as a PA 501-3(c) by the end of the month, then get a board together, write some bylaws and poo poo and find an accountant

Then on 2/9/22

Plinkey posted:

gently caress off, its my own money, and onnly 7 bucks a month

write down good poo poo you do

Plinkey posted:

yeah, it's 7 dollars, i had a rough week, i promise that i'll pay it back every month, that's how patreon works, they take it from your account before your credit card

i promise you that 7 bucks wont make a difference


So, a year+ after the fact and plinkey is talking about the fund like it is their own money? Is it a 501-3(c) or not?

I don't think taking money from your 501-3(c) for any amount because "gently caress you its my money" is a good look.
