so some of us have been using patreon for quite some time and we have loads and LOADS of content already uploaded. a new patron can sign up today and see my posts back from when i first started in early 2017. but what if i had the option to hide my old content so that it remains exclusive to patrons who have been around since the beginning?
it’s not a good idea for all creators, of course, but i’m sure some of us would like to keep one or two things exclusive to when it was posted. that’s why it can be optional. it would be cool to even have a toggle for this option for different tiers. for example, i turn the toggle to “limited access to past content” so anyone who signs up for my lowest $2 per month tier can only see the current month and then onwards as i keep posting. if they try to scroll back to august and july, it’s blocked out. but i turn it to “unlimited access to past content” for the 10 tier and higher, so they can see everything that i've ever posted. an additional useful idea could be to even set the timeframe that patrons can see. 2 tier has access to the past 6 months. 5$ tier has access to past year of content, ect ect .
would anyone else be interested in this sort of feature? do you see any potential drawbacks?
