Flattr Appreciation During Jan/Feb 2015 (6.65E/2.44E)

Flattr Appreciation During Jan/Feb 2015 (6.65E/2.44E)

We have noticed a steady trend of declining support through flattr, especially compared to a year ago when there was a significant drop of support. Last month we received our lowest amount so far with 2.44 Euros from four unique supporters. This level is below our monthly cost for web hosting and would become a significant problem if it continued. We noticed that there has been […]

Flattr Appreciation During Dec 2014 (10.41E)

Flattr Appreciation During Dec 2014 (10.41E)

December brought a lot of interesting events and articles which are reflected in number of things that were flattred last month. The value of each flattr was increased, especially on a few things that got more than a Euro for a click. This might be because people decided to be more generous during the Christmas break or more likely that they were less active with […]

Pirate Times – 2014 in Review

This past year has been an eventful one, both for the Pirate movement and for Pirate Times. A significant moment in pirate history was when PPEU was formed.

PPI also arranged ThinkTwice 2 during the fall in […]

Flattr Appreciation During Oct (5.24E) and Nov (2.59E)

Flattr Appreciation During Oct (5.24E) and Nov (2.59E)

Our Flattr income has decreased and last month it was at a level where we won’t even be able to pay for our hosting fees. We have been neglecting to push for Flattr donations lately, partly because we’re not sure if it’s the right place for us. Pirate Times needs to consider if we can’t find a better source of income (or additional sources) to […]

Flattr Appreciation During Aug & Sep 2014, Euro 4.20 & 6.90

Currently our only source of revenue for Pirate Times is through our Flattr donations. At the moment we don’t have many expenses but at the current level we’re not quite getting by. Thus we either need to start promoting flattr more or find an alternative source for more revenue. Thanks a lot to the 8 people that supported us in August and the 7 persons […]
