    Just this once, I will break your rule by posting more than one comment.

    I think Macmost is the most useful Mac resource on the web. It is straightforward, to the point and focuses on practical issues, stuff that we can actually use to get things done and be more efficient.

    It has always amazed me that it’s free! Free sites are usually cluttered, & information so scattered across pages, that it’s difficult to navigate without accidentally clicking on ads or getting distracted by junk.

    On Macmost, no jumping through hoops. Information is easy to find & subjects are expertly & concisely covered. I must be old school, because I’ve always felt I should be paying for this well layed out information. So I will gladly contribute a few dollars a month to access this wonderful resource.

    But personally Gary, I don’t understand the way you set this up on Patreon. Usually, you get a little with free membership and a lot more with a paid membership. But you seem to have set it up the other way around: we get almost everything for free, and not much more (it seems) with a paid subscription. I don’t think there is much incentive to contribute. I just hope you can keep this site going, so I will contribute anyway, for what I’m getting now. Thank you very much.

    Jean-Claude: Thanks! There are two main reasons why I wanted to do Patreon rather than making MacMost a membership site. The first was that I didn’t want to cut people off just because they couldn’t afford it, or didn’t like online payments, or other reasons. The second was that if I put some/most content behind a paywall, then it will be very hard to get new people to MacMost. Search engines wouldn’t give those pages as results, and newcomers wouldn’t have time to get to know MacMost.
    I like the idea of letting people pay what they want according to what they can afford and how much they value the content.

    I have used MacMost for several years now and find most helpful and will continue in the new format. Would like signup for the club.

    I’d like to contribute too Gary, can I give you …. say $20 for the year rather than signing up for a regular deduction ?

    Anne: Patreon doesn’t have a way to do that at the moment, sorry.

    Best of luck to you Gary! Even after working on Macs for over a decade I continue to find useful information here. Thank you!
