Copied over from Patreon
So there is this kerfluffle, Patreon did a dick move and people are bailing. Lots of people are angry, hurt, sad and ready to say fuck it and go elseware. I’ve lost a couple patrons, and while I’m sad to see them go I 100% get why, and no I’m not mad or anything.
So where do *I* stand on this? My little patreon page hasn’t generated much more than coffee money, but then over the past year I’ve been in one of the darkest depressions I’ve had in a long time, and the content hasn’t been very reliable. That’s my fault, no one else’s.
But I can’t bring myself to bail from Patreon just yet,
I understand why people are angry, seriously I’d rather take the hit than making my patrons take it. I do wish the creators had been consulted ahead of time. but this was a business decision, and artists aren’t often considered business types.
I’ve come across three posts that solidified my decision not to bail.
Amanda Palmer’s post,
I already made plans for changes to the patreon page, I’ll be making a few more.
I fully respect everyone’s decisions, regarding Patreon. Whether you decide it’s not for you, or if you decide to stick it out.
I hope whatever you decide, you have a great day/holiday season. Take care all.
