Noticed something today. Was testing something and found that when you follow someone, it now takes you to a prompt to pledge to them if you don’t already. THIS IS AWESOME! However, it’s rather unclear and I was confused at the beginning thinking the follow button was bugged and now making me pledge because it says “Choose a tier and unlock posts” instead of something like “Consider supporting and unlock posts” or “You like this persons content, please consider supporting…” - Maybe creators can pick what their page should say. I know some people would like to be funny and show their personality on screens like this. It looks very much like a next step in the process, and less of an option, which i can understand if that was on purpose but it’s very misleading and a bit pushy for some creators who advertise for people to follow us for follower giveaways and such.
And another thing i noticed after the fact.
On pages i don’t pledge to, when i go directly to a post page, it shows me “edit pledge” not a “Pledge now/support this creator” while pages i DO pledge to, don’t give me an option to edit my pledge at all. o.O This is super confusing.
Example: POST OF PAGE I DONT PLEDGE TO
POST OF PAGE I DO PLEDGE TO
Pages i pledge to should give me the option to edit/update my pledge while pages i don’t pledge to currently, should give me a button to initiate a pledge. While the page it takes me to is the same page as the follower page link, the button itself is unclear and i don’t know why it doesn’t show up on the page i actually pledge to.
