Good morning! 2021 has been such an eventful year already for League Crawler and we’re excited to announce we’re re-vamping our Patreon program for our supporters. We initially launched this back in 2018 (I think), back when all we really had was the website and Twitter. Now – we have a LOT of stuff going on!
Between January – April 2021, we’ve done the following:
- Re-Launched the Website
- Overhauled the Madden Recruiting – Post a league with better info or find one to join
- Started the League Crawler Podcast (hosted by @_Moestradamis)
- Added a writer for the site (Brennon Turner aka QueenHumble)
- Overhauled the League Crawler Discord
- Added support for FPS Clans (post your clan/recruit or browse clans)
- Added support for NBA 2K Leagues & Squads/Pro-Am Teams
- Added community news for anyone to post their personal and/or league news
- Added an events calendar for users to post upcoming events and browse current events
- Added a brand new, weekly newsletter to our members
And we’re not done! Over the next few months, we have plans to:
- Switch hosting from HostGator to another better and faster hosting provider
- Add a “Resources” section where you can upload graphics for public use
- Add a “Resources” sub section where you can link back to your personal website/business/portfolio if you sell graphic services to help you gain more customers
- Automate more things – you’ll be able to update your league profile and see your updates get automatically sent to out Twitter, Facebook and Discord channels
- Updated Leagues/Clans daily digest – once per day, we’ll have a “recently updated” list of leagues get published to our Twitter, Facebook and Discord channels
ALL of this stuff – and I mean ALL of it is possible because of our supporters and believe me when I say that your help goes a LONG way. Since it inception, League Crawler has been funded by a combination of my (Matt’s) pocket and our supporters. We’ve been so blessed that so many of you have wanted to help us financially over the years and I’ve done my best to say thank you the best I can. Back when the first few donations came in years ago, I promised to always have a place on the site to honor them for their donations – no matter the amount.
Since then, I’ve kept track of all the donations from our supporters and posted them on the site.
Going forward, we’ve overhauled the Patreon program to make it easier for us to say thank you!
Probably some more to come, but what we wanted to start with was highlighting anyone that supports us, rather than just focusing on just leagues and benefiting them. The gist is Bronze members get listed on the site and a monthly shout out on Twitter. Silver get those benefits plus a shout out on our newsletter (any time it goes out – weekly, etc). Gold gets those benefits plus a shout out in the description of each episode of the podcast and Platinum members get a shout out on the show itself plus all the previous benefits.
We’ll also be looking at adding more benefits in the future including Discord roles, access to premium content and more. If you have ideas what we can add, we’d love to hear from you! I cannot say thanks enough to all of you that want to support League Crawler and all of you who already have. Thank you so much and we look forward to growing with you!
