Need any Statistics Homework Help?



  • You are statistics homework help who offers online classes. That is impressive. Tuition services are not mandatory for any student. But whoever sees tuition services can improve their class performance, especially for those students who find it hard to comprehend what is taught in a crowded classroom. I personally found it helpful when I was seeking econometrics homework help. I performed well.



  • dont know if that password thingie really helps… for me it works really fine now with just sending out those links... havent found pirated stuff from patreon source anywhere since months (i always change some small details so i would notice)... maybe because my patreons have to pay 15 bucks per month instead of most others that hand out stuff for a fiver or something. so you geht more "real" supporters onboard that way... at least i hope :)

    edit: oh and... check my profile if you want... i changed it a little bit today and cleaned it up... made it mooore waterproof. not even a direct link to my BAD BAD website to find on there... and just happy-happy-flower pics remaining there... maybe possible to remove the NSFW checkbox? so i maybe get more visitors from browsing... or too dangerous? what you guys think?



  • I guess the key is to change passwords regularly



  • And then they'll start trading passwords :)



  • @'hibbli':

    its easy to work around that issue. just dont host your stuff on patreon itself (what you shouldnt do anyway) and send download links only to people after they paid their first pledge. leecher problem solved :)

    Good tip. I know it might seem obvious actually to do it that way for some, but with me being completely inexperienced with Patreon, I would've walked myself right into that problem with not waiting until paid pledges came in and posting my work right on there, with the good belief that people will pay like they should. I've also seen the idea of using password protected folders as well on a hosting site and only sending passwords to the paid patrons.



  • noooot bad… animo has been at around 2000 just 8 weeks ago :D i am getting a little jealous now! :D



  • I'm supporting 2 artists on Patreon right now and are considering supporting more if more of you figure out how to do it right. Hibbli has a good point there. Also you have to be able to release something every month, or your subs will drop for a month. So think of it as subscribing to a magazine with one issue per month. Then again you should probably post something there at least once per week. Like an update on what you are working on. 3dzen, hibbli, nok'tus etc knows how its done. Look at their pages for example…

    And you can make some good money there. Nok'tus makes over 2500$ a month there now after just 6-9 months I think. And a guy named animopron cashes in a healthy 4000$ at the moment. These are the top two 3dx artists that I know of at Patreon though... but it seems like it has just started...

    Edit: Studio FOW is at 6000$ if they count I guess. Though they are not just one person... in my view their scenes have quite terrible camera views and are too blurry. So overstepping those guys shouldn't be that hard. I've seen better stuff from some of the stuff here...

  • Well, I decided to roll dice and open a Patreon account to see what comes of it. Only thing that seemed a bit odd is during the process of settings things up, I remember seeing a part saying that Patrons could cancel their pledges anytime before they are billed on the next month. So what this says to me, is really, people could pledge an amount of money just to gain access to your patron only material, get all the content, cancel their pledge and be gone with the wind without paying a cent out of pocket. I know this is a messed up way of thinking, but that cancel thing set off the red flag right away for me.

    So, I did a little google researching on that subject and there was an article about some guy complaining of that same subject. People finding loopholes and abusing it.

    Here's the article - http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/826755.html

    Seems it's the reality of shit on Patreon, and Patreon won't do shit about it? Well, I'll stick with patreon for a while and see how things go, and just hope this doesn't burn us artists who are trying to get somewhere.



  • @'render8':

    Thanks for answering this one as I've been seeing the word Patreon popping up more and more these days, especially among the 3DX crowd, but never really understood it. Not sure if I'd feel worthy enough for it, but it's a nice idea to keep on the backburner for down the road.

    I don't know that the term "worthy" is relevant, as quality is in the eye of the beholder. Since this is crowdfunding plain and simple, if you have something people want, they will pledge. There are people on Patreon doing machinima, YouTube channels, sketchbook art, etc. that is really, really bad… but somehow have patrons. Quality seems to be completely irrelevant.

    My concern with Patreon is that technically they do not allow pornography, but what is considered porn is so subjective. Your pinup-style renders would probably be fine, but Patreon is literally only two years old. Who knows if and how this might change in the future as the company evolves.

    Additionally, the site was established as a way for musicians to monetize their creations who did not have another outlet to do so. I take umbrage with the many artists who are "double dipping" by having a Patreon page in addition to already having a legitimate and lucrative sales outlet (be it here, Renderotica, DLSite, Clips4Sale, etc.). This is the reason I haven't gotten on board, despite many in my fan base suggesting it. Ethically, it just seems greedy. But that might just be me.

  • From what I've gathered it's a crowdfunding platform used to fund individual artists. On Kickstarter, for example, you host a project and that specific project is what gets funded. With Patreon, you introduce yourself as Guy X or Y, making art in A/B/C manner, and that you'd like people to support your work so that you can keep making more.

    Best as I can tell, there's no commitment to spend money in a specific way, the only thing you're obliged to is creating patron-exclusive content next to your regular work. In our case that would mean that other than the stuff we post on our tumblr/our thread here on A3D, there's also content that only your supporters get access to.

    I've seen Patreon accounts that do absolutely nothing interesting pull in hundreds if not thousands of dollars per month. There's this one girl who recites her poetry in youtube videos and she's banking. But for every person like her there are hundreds never making more than an additional fifty bucks a month, which I guess is still a good way to buy new content.

    I'm thinking about opening a Patreon myself but I always feel like I don't yet have enough legitimacy as a 3DX artist to be asking for other people's money. I don't know.
