Wanna help with fleshing this feature out? Head over to the discourse:
We've started a discussion thread where we want to hear, which one you'd lean towards, and weighing pros and cons of the two services.
@Gargron is taking a few days off. Payday refers to 1 of the Month, since that is when pledges go through.
This is his first real vacation days since early April, if not longer, so let's help him out. By not talking to him tomorrow!
