Become a FoS Supporter, because my website subsidy demand is stuck in city council committee

Now that I’ve kicked off the Field of Schemes 20th anniversary celebration with my Roger Noll interview, it’s time to remind FoS readers that this site — or, at least, my ability to devote the time to updating this site each morning — exists thanks to your support, or more specifically the support of those of you who chip in as FoS Supporters. I’m really proud to have kept this site going for two decades without resorting to paywalls or what have you, and I’m equally proud of you all for allowing me to do so via your generosity, in exchange for a few trinkets and that warm fuzzy feeling of helping call attention to the ongoing stadium subsidy madness. Seriously: Thanks, everyone who has ever donated, or retweeted, or commented, because I literally could not do this without you — and not just in the millennial sense.

As a reminder, here’s the stuff you get when you become an FoS Supporter:

  • For $100, full-year supporters get a stylish Field of Schemes mug, a Field of Schemes Supporter pin, a set of Field of Schemes stadium trading cards, an e-book copy of my 2016 book The Brooklyn Wars, and one year of ad space (running in rotation with other site supporters) in the top right corner of this page — you can either provide your own 90×250-pixel ad, or I can design one for you. (If you don’t have anything you personally want to advertise, feel free to promote a favorite charity.)
  • For $50, half-year supporters get everything except the mug, and the ad space only lasts for (wait for it) half a year.
  • For $25, minisupporters get the pin, cards, and ebook, but not the mug or ad space.

If you want the goodies to wing their way to your door, please remember to include your mailing address in the notes field; if you don’t want any goodies, just say “no goodies” and you’ll receive only a thank-you email.

As always, I am hugely appreciative of anything you can give. After all, this site is 20 years old now, so clearly it’s time for me to start thinking about building a new one with air-conditioning.

Thanks,

Neil

    • I’ve thought about it, but I’ve never been sure what advantages it would have over my DIY method. If people would prefer it for any reason, though, I could certainly look into starting one.

  1. Have you considered telling the city council your web site will create millions in economic activity?

    • I should have demanded that they pay me for the right to be the Official Electronic Payment System of Field of Schemes.
