Thank you to all the people who have signed up as YLF patrons. With every additional person who signs up we get a little closer to replacing the revenue we lost by removing ads from the site for logged in users.

The main feedback we received when we launched the patronage model was that people would prefer a non-recurring option. So late last year we added a manually renewable annual contribution. A short while ago we realized that we never actually announced it.

The cost is exactly the same as the monthly option, but pays 12 months in one go and does not automatically renew at the end of the year. If you become a patron using this option, then in the final month of the 12 month period you will have the option to renew for another year.

As before, you can sign up as a patron on the contribution page. Once you’re a patron you can manage your status from your profile. Thanks again for your support!
