So this is a somewhat random idea but I was watching Twitch today and was wondering if Patreon could implement an idea similar to twitch in which different tier supports have an icon appear next to their name on their posts and replies… OR perhaps they get a badge for the amount of time they have supported you, much like twitch.
Basically, it would look something like this:
(Tier 1 Supporter)
UserName1: Cool post!!
(Tier 2 Supporter)
RandomUserName: Hey this is awesome!
(Tier 3 Supporter)
Or maybe some combination of a badge + maybe 3MO, 6MO, 1YR, icons next to their name example:
(Tier 2 supporter for 6 months)
RandomUserName1: Cool idea!!!
These would be viewable whenever the person posts, replies to a post or comment. And of course creators could customize the icons/badges etc…
It seems like a simple way to offer rewards that I believe some people will take pride in. Also, as a creator it gives me a simple way to shout out to someone who has been supporting for certain milestones.
I hope I explained this well. Lemme know your thoughts!
