The truth is, as a creator, I’m deeply weary of Patreon’s “great brilliant minds” who every so often come up with some way to make the platform more confusing and worse. It has happened before in they have made changes, which according to them were for the benefit of the creators, and that have only brought problems and subscriber leaks for the creators. This decision does not allow that as creators we can have complete clarity of how much we are going to collect at the beginning of the month, it does not allow us to plan with our own expenses, it does not allow us to exercise our profession with peace of mind. At the same time, our subscribers have to remember each date on which they subscribe.
It is a real annoyance that every couple of months we have to see how decisions are made under the premise of “our patreons asked for it” “our studies say so” and the truth is I never see any survey or any of those studies. And most of the requests that I see in this forum, which are totally reasonable and in order to improve the operation, are completely ignored.
I do not know how I am going to organize myself in the next few months if I am going to be collecting my sponsorships leaky throughout the month.
