I’m leaving things as they are now, because several people said they’d prefer to be paying monthly rather than by-post, but Patreon have now backed down and said, and I quote, “We messed up. We’re sorry, and we’re not rolling out the fees change.”
Patreon cocked up in a big way, and I have lost income over this because of changing to the monthly payments (and like I say, I’m not going to change them back, because so many people have said they prefer to pay by the month), but that blog post is an example of a company reacting well to having made a mistake, and they’re doing the right thing now.
I’m still going to look at diversifying my crowdfunding, but between that and the Alabama Senate result last night (Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, Nigel Farage, your boy took one hell of a beating!), I think that’s a pretty good day.
I’m sleep-deprived now, but tomorrow I think I’ll do a quick link roundup of people who deserve the support of anyone who’s now looking to move onto (or back to) Patreon, along with my next proper post.
