Hey, y'all-- Facebook recently announced they're launching a "Patreon killer" service.
Regardless of your thoughts on Patreon, FB's alternative is TERRIBLE!
⚠️ 30% gross revenue fee
⚠️ Automatic LIFETIME IP rights to ANYTHING you put on the service
even if you quit!
⚠️ FB wants to give discounts and freebies whenever they like, w/o creator approval, and then deduct it from creator revenue
⚠️ FB will also control WHO sees your content and how many views you have

Our map serving load is increasingly spread over cache servers located worldwide, with donated hardware and hosting. At the moment we'd love a new server donation located in Brazil or Australia/New Zealand! : https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2019/02/24/can-you-help-make-openstreetmap-org-faster-in-brazil-or-australia-new-zealand/
