I love this idea of gifting a coffee or appreciating someone for their work.

Pros:

Great way to gift a coffee to our friends as well as to those whom we appreciate

Cons:

Nothing as of now.

I love the idea: you are not giving / asking for money, instead, you can buy or ask for a nice cup of coffee. It feels so much better to send someone a coffee or ask for coffee to fuel my creativity than just to ask for 3 dollars. Thanks Ko-fi Team!

Pros:

Awesome way to give and ask for support!

Cons:

Nothing

Letting underage girls post nsfw content of themselves without a way to flag it or report it, from what I've seen. Multiple girls ranging from 14-17. Might just be me unable to find out how to flag it, I'm not sure but it's pretty disgusting

@kyra1 this was my first thought upon encountering the site, was let's see how this becomes pornified for lack of a word. I did not see NSFW by minors, but that is worse than I thought. Ko-fi would definitely need to shut that down or the FBI will. That is straight up child porn. Letting users flag it would be the smart thing to do, but they have bigger legal concerns at that point.

Membership for recurring payments!

I had a problem where I registered a card and was composing a note to sent via $12 donation to a creator, and I put my phone down for a sec and when I came back note was gone. I didn't want note sent and I certainly did not want to be charged if my rough draft had gone through. I looked for a help feature and went to Twitter to send a message to Ko-fi for help. 24 hours later no word. Strange when your Twitter response time is worse than Uber's (legendary for being unreachable for help). I'm not impressed.
