Not yet! Our staff is currently working for free until we're off the ground and expects to take significant paycuts as we build back up. However, we do expect to be hiring additional game-specific columnists and freelancers, and we'll post those openings to the blog when we are set.
Our staff is too big and the genre too broad for just Patreon alone. We hope to incorporate Patreon as one of several revenue streams once we're fully up and running. We expect it to allow our readers to help direct the site's content.
Apparently Kickstarter doesn't support PayPal. The official Kickstarter FAQ reads, "We support most major credit cards, but we do not support payment with Paypal at this time." ( https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/backer+questions ) If you still want to chip in but strongly prefer PayPal, you might want to wait for the Patreon to get rolling, as Patreon does accept PayPal.
Once the Kickstarter ends, Kickstarter allows us to request information from backers of every tier, such as how you wanted to be credited, what your comment name is, and so forth. We've gotten way more backers than we dreamed of, so it might take us some time to get everyone taken care of, but we'll be working on it until everyone's settled!
