If you have fun on GameSystemRequirements.com or you want it to be developed more dinamically, you have the opportunity to support us via Patreon. In this way you can support us during this challenging time.
There's only two of us who make all of this possible. We have been working on the site for 13 years. This is some of them what we do on a daily basis:
- keeping thousands of games' data up-to-date
- moderating and administrating hundreds of comments and profiles (user and device)
- developing the website and running the web server
- writing and checking the news and articles on the site
Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented economic and global health crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic along with the lack of ads, our income decreased by 60% while our outcome are still the same. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us in many ways. Although the visitor statistics have increased due to the quarantine restrictions, there is much less advertiser while Patreon provides a stable, reliable source of income.
What are your goals?
Some examples that we want to develop in the future:
- Achievement system
- Game recommendation for configurations
- New community menupoint
- Introducing forum threads categories
- Adding server CPUs and embed CPUs to our database
- Benchmark database
- Localizing further menu points
- More content, news, and articles
- Mega menu
What if you fail to gather enough patrons, your site will be closed down?
No, it won't.
Will I get a feedback on the developments?
Yes, we will let you know about the latest improvements here in the news section and on Patreon, as well.
Do you want to become like PC Gamer, Eurogamer or IGN?
Nope, we are a more specific site, operating only with two editors. Although writing news and articles is not our priority, we really want to develop the news section on the site in the future.
What is Patreon and how does it work?
Patreon is a membership platform where you can choose to become a patron and can pay a fixed amount to us on a monthly basis. With this membership model, we can earn monthly revenue directly from our patrons. Patrons can delete their subscription and cancel their payment at any time.
