The Only Edition is now Pay What You Want, so Essentially Nothing has Changed
Since The Only Edition has risen from the ashes of The Only Plus streaming service, we have strived to regain the attention and trust of our readership. And over the past five months, I believe we have done that. What we have not done is remember to charge you for the privilege of reading our news.
Now, this was once again an oversight on our part, something we really should have been paying attention to after the hole we found ourselves in after the crypto crash. And while I would love nothing more than to charge you all $10 a month to read the fruits of our labor, we’ve been informed by our friend Elon that apparently suddenly charging for what was once free can cause a bit of an uproar. So instead, The Only Edition will be making its articles available for the price of Pay What You Want on Patreon.
Yes, that does in fact mean that if You Want to Pay nothing, then you are certainly welcome to. I’ve been assured by our marketing department that this pricing scheme will absolutely not send the message that we think our product isn’t worth anything. That telling our readers they can pay whatever they’re comfortable with is inviting and expectation-free, and that we understand that they might have other needs that must be met, even as they ignore ours. I can absolutely promise that we will not publicly denounce you for robbing the food from our children’s mouths. What we do in the privacy of our offices and therapy is another matter. Whatever your choice, whether to read our reporting for free guilt-free, or whether you believe that we are an important voice in tabletop news worth supporting, we at The Only Edition have just one thing to say: you’re welcome.
