We’ve made some amazing progress together. After a little less than two months, our members have contributed more than $205,000 to help supercharge Snopes. Thank you so much for your very generous support.
Now, some updates from our staff, who are hard at work fulfilling all of the commitments we made throughout the campaign:
First, we’ve been busy coordinating with our partner SwagUp and can now say that we’re expecting to ship the physical merchandise in March 2020.
Second, many of you have asked about the ad-free browsing on Snopes. Without getting too deep into the technical details, we’re wiring together the login system to ensure only those eligible for ad-free gain access.
Lastly, you may have noticed a few packs no longer available. That’s because we’re no longer selling these items while we fulfill the initial orders. If we resume selling the larger reward options or begin offering the individual items in the Snopes store, we will update you here.
Keep an eye on this project for future updates. In the meantime, we hope everyone is enjoying the Snopes Digest, a members-only newsletter created just for you. (Haven’t gotten it yet? Make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your whitelist. Here’s how to do it.)
