Don't get shamed into disabling your adblocker to "support creators".
Ads pay so little, it really doesn't matter.
If you want to do the financial support, just donate to them. That is the equivalent of multiple thousand ad views.

@hay If there's one thing I've learned from doing business online is the overwhelming efficiency of just giving money to someone.

@hay I'm legit curious how much they get from ads from a single user per year cause I'd rather just give it straight to them

@revolverocelot @hay Google Adsense has a thing on their website where you can estimate the amount of ad revenue your site could generate, of course using some fancy tricks to make it look like a lot of money. Calculating from what that gives me, it seems to be around 1 cent for 3 page hits, so its probably more in total if you pay 1€ per month

@hay tbh if many people who want to support some creator but barely have money (independence) disable their ad blocker for them, that will be a lot more than those people not giving any money

but then again, one wonders how many people would that have to be and if it would really make a life-changing impact

@hay
Same for music! Buy one album a month, it will give the artist an equivalent for several tens of thousands of listens on Spotify and other dumb services.

@aladar @hay but I have issues with using pateron . If they don't like the creater of said content the creator will need to to have ads.

@hay I just moved to NewPipe, so now my adblocker is my streaming client anyway :D
