Hey there, Founding Members! We have some great news for you all.
We’re pleased to announce that, as of this writing, 98% of swag boxes have shipped. We are working on sending confirmations, but if you haven’t received your confirmation yet, please email us. If you’ve already received your order, show it off — send us a message or tweet us pictures of you with your new Snopes gear.
Many of you have been asking when you’ll be able to access ad-free browsing and other online member benefits. We hear you! Our engineering team anticipates providing these key features to all members by the end of May. Thanks to your financial support, we’ve hired developers to help our in-house team get it ready.
On that note: Because of all of you, Snopes has been able to expand our already dedicated team. In addition to the aforementioned developers, we’ve hired a new reporter and operations assistant. We’re also looking for an eagle-eyed story editor — if you or anyone you know might be a good fit, please share the job listing posted here.
We have so many new projects cooking thanks to all your help and we cannot wait to tell you more. Stay tuned.
