Because of the new feature about posts being unlocked by tier, I recently edited one of my pledges to another creator to add a tier (the amount did not change).
This is a creator who I frequently collaborate with and post about my collaborations to my Patreon. I got notes from several patrons who said they received emails from Patreon with the subject “(my name) just became a patron of (other creator’s name)”. I’ve been a patron of this other creator for a while. This message was misleading and confusing to MY patrons. More importantly, I did not consent to Patreon sending this out.
I know when you pledge to a creator, the email the person paying receives gives us the option to share that - can that PLEASE be an opt-in thing?
It is totally not ok with me for you to tell every one of my patrons every time I pledge to another creator. There ARE some creators (particularly, in my genre!) for whom I’d LOVE for those notifications to go out.
I want control over this.
Please please. This is not okay, and this makes me NOT want to pledge to any other creators this season until this is addressed, because I DO NOT WANT MY PATRONS SPAMMED ABOUT MY PERSONAL GIVING.
