Are you rich? Do you need your bank account to lighten up? Then this tier is for you! This is exclusively for people who want to make a major contribution to open source development. You'll obviously receive all of the Gold benefits, but Platinum comes with special perks, which is why so few people can join this tier.
At this level, you get to steer my development to a much greater extent than anyone else. You want a feature implemented? I'll work on it. You want a new software tool written? I'll make it. You want me to fix something in the software that's driving you a little bit nuts? I'll fix it. All of this assumes your request is within my abilities and can be reasonably implemented, so if you want to join this tier to get something done, email me first and tell me what you're after to make sure I can do it!
Any video tutorials I make during membership in this tier will contain spoken and visual credits and thanks to you near the start of the video, along with a 10-15 second statement of your choosing (must be work-safe). You will feature prominently in the software documentation and help text for any software I am working on at the time. While a part of this tier, if you request a bug fix, feature, or new program, and I fulfill that request, I'll credit you in the software's change log and/or commit history for anything you're involved in.
Did I mention that I'll give you gratitude? Because I'll definitely give you a truckload of gratitude.
