Just a quick update that we wanted to share with you. Every few months Patreon takes inactive creator campaigns and reverts them to a pre-launch state. We consider an account inactive if it hasn’t published a post or processed a payment in over four months. We do this to help mitigate risky activity on Patreon such as spam, content theft and account takeovers. We’ll run this reversion tomorrow around 8am (pst) and will run it again in subsequent quarters.
Creators can easily reinstate their campaigns and nothing from the account will have been changed or lost.
We understand that in the past this action has caused some complications for a small number of creators, and want to make sure that you all have a heads up before we launch this reversion. Here are some answers to the most frequently-asked questions we think will help mitigate confusion:
Accounts can be easily relaunched by following the steps in this Help Center Article.
Reverted accounts that have Founders’ processing rates will not lose those rates. Upon relaunch, Founders’ status will remain.
No content will be deleted in this reversion. When you relaunch your page, it will look as it did prior to its reversion.
Creator-patron messaging will not be affected by this action.
If you’ve got any questions not addressed above, please feel free to raise them here. We’ll be happy to help out.
