For supporting, you will receive 1 GeekGold for every dollar you spend.

If you spend $15.00 or more, then you will receive a supporter logo underneath your username.

If you spend $25.00 or more, then you will be able to disable advertisements on the site and unlock the 'viewed' subscription function.

Anyone that supports in 2016 gets the bonus (derived from the number of supporters during the December drive). Currently it stands at a lowly 22.39 gg but last year ended at a whopping 387.81 gg.

You'll also get a micro-badge for the level that you support at.

It disables advertisements for the year? Unfortunately, sometimes the advertisements tell of kickstarters I'm not aware of.

I also can't say that I'm a fan of different colored patron banners based on amount donated.

?? The colors in the Patron banner are different every year, but identical for all Patrons.

Perhaps you're trying to refer to the Bronze, Copper, Gold MicroBadges, which you must actively request and more actively place in the ID that appears to the left of your posted messages. It's not public unless you make it so.

It gives you the ability to customize what ads you can see. You can see all, some, or none. There's a checkbox list.

Is there someway of removing the banner? This is my first year donating, and frankly, I think it looks a little tacky.

It can be removed with adblock ($25 level, or adblock with geekgold)

OH, my mistake, I wasn't clear. I meant is there a way to remove the patron banner. I don't like the idea of wearing an "I donated" sticker.

This came up in my subscriptions. Say I went and looked at another subscription, then decided I wanted to come back and say something else. I could go to the subscription page and click Viewed and see the ping for this thread, and come back to it. Basically, it looks like the subscription page, but it's a history view, rather than a "to-read" view.

Any user can view their contributions to see what they've posted. Viewed lets you see things that were in your subscriptions, but didn't subscribe to (as by replying and subscribing to replies). So, it's more for, "I should have subscribed/replied to...."

you can't remove it.
you could create another account and transfer all your GG over and start again and use the older user solely for donating. but your microbadges and contributions don't transfer.

Very handy if you absent-mindedly click 'read'. Very similar view:

Click on your own (or anyone's) Patron banner and it will take you to the donation page which includes the information, "If you spend $15.00 or more, then you will receive a supporter logo underneath your username. "

I now notice this info is present on the funding banner, faintly below the progress bar saying "$15 min for supporter badge & GeekGold bonus ". Could be we didn't notice earlier, or could be it has been more recently added.

The $15 for patron perks is long standing.

Here's a user who took an image of the supporter drive when it first went up:
