Patreon has started unveiling their plans for what basically every VC-funded commerce/financial support platform does once their investors start demanding more – make a pointless, multi-tier funhouse version of their platform.
As far as I can tell, none of these proposed changes should affect any of you and they shouldn’t affect the percentage of money that I get from any of your pledges. (One of the nasty things about these changes is that they have re-introduced those payment processing fees against small pledges that they attempted in 2017 – but this time to prevent a backlash, it only applies to creators who make an account after a transition date.)
This will not be the end of Patreon’s bullshit – they will have to keep screwing people for more and more, bot hopefully nothing destructive will happen for Mutant Standard before I can move onto XOXO’s upcoming alternative.
As always, I’ll keep you all updated on any changes and let you know if you might be affected so you don’t feel in the dark about this bullshit <3
