January has come to an end and with that our first full month of tipping. We launched the feature at the end of December with 20 creators, and are now up to 700 creators with the feature active. I'd like to thank each and every one of you that have played a part in making this feature such a success. The generosity from fans and creators has been a tremendously uplifting sight to see, especially when held in contrast to some of the more recent things happening in the world.
I've personally activated all 700 accounts and am working hard to try to activate 700 more in February, which is, unfortunately, a lot less than the 50 per day that I had originally projected. But that's okay! One of the absolute highlights of this feature has been talking to so many of you one on one and catching up with some creators that launched their series when I first started working for Tapas Media (shoutout to Wavechan!).
As you might have noticed, tipping directly on the Daily Snack has been a really great way to expose tipping to people on a daily basis. We usually pair a regular episode from a series alongside their tipping episode.
If you have made a tipping episode please do link to it in the posts below and let me know if you're okay with us using some of the art within the episode to create internal ads for the Tapastic community. You might have noticed that there's been an ad with art by Kales (https://tapastic.com/kalidewild) popping up every now and then. If you're not okay with us using your art for these purposes, I completely understand.
So, in the posts below please do the following:
1) Link to your tipping episode
2) State whether you're okay with us using the art for advertisements
3) Include any feedback you might have for tipping
Thanks again, and happy tipping.
