Insulting? It's insulting to you that I have "high standards" about what I recommend to people I care about? Ok, then. I'll take your advice - I won't recommend the site to the communities I'm apart of. ::meh::
You just have this condescending, holier-than-thou attitude. "World revolves around what I care about" sort of vibe.

for the patches couldn't you just take the same design from the bandanna make is smaller add/take away from the design to make it more suitable for a patch. that way it'd look similar and be a running theme matching type items. just an idea.

As far as patch designs i think itd be cool to have something along the lines of a like oldschool skate/punk/thrash/metal zine art kind of vibe, and if its i square patch maybe put some words around the border like on the back of a crass album or something so people can get an idea of what stp is about or whatever. Maybe make it a jam up of that type a thing mixed with gypsy/hobo imagery. Like a fucked up skull with like a banjo and bindle cross behind it and biting a skateboard with the old stp logo on it. Or whatever the artist decides on.

I attached an image of the kinda look im talking about.

Im just daydreaming of patch designs on my last day at work. So im just gonna shit a few out real quick.
Picture of abbie hoffman and it says "squat this planet" or like a hobo peeking out an owl hole or drinking out of a 40 or some shit or someone catching on the fly idk classic travel images of some kind and maybe incorporate the classic stp logo into it somehow.

Just some of my thoughts hope it can be helpful for something.

unfortunately the majority of the image would be squished to the point where it would be illegible, especially the mountains and many of the symbols.

I am working with @awkwardshelby who's done the jambo posters and the anarchist' guide to travel book cover. i'm not going to spoil it yet, but i think we have something in mind that will work and people will like. i'll post a sketch here once we have something to show.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I don't represent this site at all, but "supposedly", the Couchsurfing site is getting their asses whipped by the Covid-19 situation and may soon shut down, just a heads up for anyone who also uses it
