What incentives would get such a thing rolling?

I remember saying in the past that they could easily set up voluntary subs, say £2 a month. People laughed.
The same people cry when others say Spotify isn't worth £5 a month.
If you use something regularly, you should be willing to give a small token of appreciation, in my opinion.
Course, you could be like me and just add value with continious comedy gold, but you can't teach that.
(Is this thread about something else entirely?)
could attract a decent kickstarter total if it was put together with some thought
i share your opinion on a small token of appreciation, a few other sites i use a lot put together some nice campaigns on kickstarter recently to reduce ads etc and got some decent support from users
and I don't make very much money

Sean often talks about how he doesn't have the money to do more, so I'm surprised he's never asked for donations from users (I guess there's the risk of looking bad/needy).
I think the main problem with donations when I looked into it before as paypal taking a big cut, and also something to do with corporation tax and becoming a charity. Basically you're meant to give people something in return for money, even if it's a service they're already using. Maybe the legal guy I asked over complicated it. I did look into a tipjar thing, as I'd love it if our writers got donations if people enjoyed a review or appreciated a series of reviews.
For a donation you're NOT meant to give someone something in return, otherwise it turns into a transaction and a whole different kettle of fish (VAT for one). Hence the word donation - an offering.
You can give some benefits back to the donor for a donation, but they have to be relatively small. Even stricter laws and rules apply to benefits and donations once you get in to the realms of charities.

what would that do for the ad revenue?

I asked Sean about just clearing them all out a year or so ago.

it'd be like some kind of social experiment.
and no one elses
everyone is fined a hypothetical £100 but can chalk £1 off for every character they bring to life within six months, paying an end fine of the balance.
but I get £450 of it, sean can have £50
