(FR) Avertissements divers : Ce document, créé pour un dossier du magazine Canard PC sur le financement participatif, contient les sommes récoltées depuis janvier 2016 par un millier environ de comptes Patreon associés à une activité de jeu vidéo. Les chiffres relatifs à Patreon dans ce document ont été récoltés sur le site Graphtreon.com, avec l'autorisation de son créateur. De par la nature-même de Patreon, ces chiffres sont forcément incomplets, ils ne prennent pas en compte tout Patreon mais seulement les profils que nous avons nous-mêmes relevés (avec des recherches en anglais, français, allemand, et espagnol). Les chiffres sont relevés en fin de mois et les éventuels paiements immédiats (rares, mais existants) ne sont donc pas comptés. Certains profils ne demandent pas d'argent tous les mois mais à une échéance particulière (toutes les semaines, tous les deux mois, à chaque vidéo...) : ils représentent plus ou moins 9% de la somme totale. Depuis fin janvier 2017, Patreon permet aux créateurs de masquer l'argent qu'ils récoltent (un choix d'anti-transparence particulièrement curieux) : dans ces cas-là, une estimation, forcément imprécise mais basée sur le nombre de donneurs et sur la moyenne des dons des mois précédents, est affichée sur un fond orange. Pour de nombreux projets, Graphtreon n'a commencé les relevés qu'en février 2016 : janvier 2016 accuse donc un probable manque à gagner, hélas difficile à quantifier. Les profils Patreon ont été classés à la main en quatre catégories (non exclusives) : jeu (ou mod, ou contenu de jeu) ; Outils, logiciels, services, évènements ; médias (podcasts, sites, magazines, vidéos) et NSFW ou pas. Bien que contactés, Kickstarter, Indiegogo et Gambitious n'ont pas fourni de chiffres. Les chiffres d'Indiegogo ont été relevés à la main (en excluant les projets de matériels de jeux vidéo, de type consoles portables), mais il est probable qu'ils soient incomplets, le site rendant la récolte de ces informations particulièrement difficile. Les chiffres de Fig ont été relevés à la main et sont normalement complets. Le total annuel de Gambitious a été relevé sur Polygon (http://cpc.cx/crowdfunding2016). Les chiffres de Kickstarter ont été relevés dans le document créé par Julien Dupire (http://cpc.cx/catelstarter) et convertis en dollars avec des taux datant du 3 mars 2017 (la précision est notamment importante pour les quelques projets en livres sterling). Enfin, les chiffres de Star Citizen ont été relevés dans ce document créé par sa communauté : http://cpc.cx/chartcitizen. Pour toute question : netsabes@canardpc.com.(EN) Various warnings : This document was created as part of a feature for French print magazine Canard PC on crowdfunding. It contains data about the sums 1000+ videogame-related patreons gained since January 2016. Patreon data in this document were obtained through Graphtreon.com, with the authorisation of its owner. It is incomplete by nature, as it only takes into account Patreon profiles we discovered (with searches in english, french, german and spanish). Immediate payments (rare, but they do happen on Patreon) are not taken into accounts, as we only get the data from the last day of each month. Some Patreons only ask money on specific occurrences (weekly, every two months or for each creation...) and not monthly: they make about 9% of the total sum. Since the end of January 2017, Patreon allows creators to mask their earnings: we display on orange background an estimate, obviously imprecise but based on the number of backers and the average from previous months. Graphtreon only began scraping data in February 2016 from a number of projects: January 2016 is probably lower than it should be. All Patreon profiles were sorted into 4 non-exclusives categories: game (or mod, or game content); tool, software, event, service; media (podcast, magazine, site, video) and NSFW or not. Despite being contacted, Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Gambitious didn't provide us with data. Data from Indiegogo (excluding hardware videogame projects, such as game consoles) was scraped by us but is probably incomplete, as the site makes it very hard to get it well. Data from Fig was also obtained by us and should be complete. Data from Gambitious was taken from Polygon (http://cpc.cx/crowdfunding2016). Data from Kickstarter was taken from Julien Dupire's Google Sheet (http://cpc.cx/catelstarter) and converted into US Dollars with the conversion rate of March 3rd 2017 (which makes a bit of a difference for the few projects using the British Pound). Finally, data from Star Citizen was taken in this Google Sheet made by the community: http://cpc.cx/chartcitizen. For any question: netsabes@canardpc.com.Links:
