Get Early Access To Our Coins By Signing Up For Patreon

We launched our Patreon page a few days ago.  Patrons of Pi-hole get several benefits: in addition to the rewards already granted by becoming a patron, you’ll also get a flair on our user forums, and early access to things such as first access to our collector’s coins.

Patreon charges you on the first of the month, so if you sign up today, you’ll be just in time.  We’re offering our patrons first dibs on the Pi-hole collector coins we have been teasing.  So if you want one, make sure you sign up for Patreon today.

Finally, here’s what the custom flair on our user forums looks like:

 

Coins, Patreon Feedback Round 2, Plus Our Fundraiser

Separate from Patreon: Collectable Coins Will Be For Sale

These are 2 inch metal coins with color and texture.  Only 300 have been made (seven of which have gone to the developers) and each one has a sequential number printed on it.

If these are a success, we will be designing and selling more coins, but this will be the only limited edition run with sequential numbering, so if you’re a collector or just a die hard fan, you’ll need to act fast.  We’ll do another blog post announcing when they are available for purchase.

Patreon Reward Levels

We are also running a mug-of-the-month tier for those willing to donate $15 a month.  Each month, we’ll ship out a mug with a new Pi-hole inspired design on it.  Here are just a few we’ve already had commissioned.

NXDOMAIN And Null Blocking With FTLDNS

Pi-hole has traditionally returned a blank HTML page in place of advertisements.  An alternative method is to return NXDOMAINno such domain.  This is a behaviour you asked us to implement and we have listened.

To use it, you’ll need to be running the FTLDNS beta (pihole -up if you’re already on it):

echo "FTLDNS" | sudo tee /etc/pihole/ftlbranch
pihole checkout core FTLDNS 
pihole checkout web FTLDNS

You can also checkout the development branches, but if you want the most up-to-date code, use the FTLDNS branches.

Once you’ve checked out on the new branches,  you need to add this to /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf(note you may need to create this file if it does not exist)

BLOCKINGMODE=NXDOMAIN

or

BLOCKINGMODE=NULL

depending on which method you prefer and then restart FTLDNS (pihole-FTL) to apply the change

sudo service pihole-FTL restart

We have around 300 custom-made, 2 inch Pi-hole coins, sequenced and everything.  They are dual-sided, colored and look very nice.  If these sell out, we could possibly do a coin-of-the-month club as well.  But for now, there is only one style coin available.

The proceeds from selling these coins will go towards our fundraising goal.
