I have seen one or two “denied” or “declined” payments in my payment-history, too.
It would be a sign of trustworthyness if Patreon could publicly comment on this instead of - again - seemingly ignore their own “community-forum”. Seriously, Patreon, your “community” isn’t exactly pumping with life, having a look at what is going on around here and getting involved really would raise my trust in your service right now.
I am not mad like Lisa because of the denied payments, more because I feel like this whole thing is not thought through very well, it looks and feels - to me! - like some students made up a “cool thing”, dabbled with it and then forgot that there are actual people using it. I honestly apologize if this sounds more dismissive than it is meant. I am really only voicing my feelings about “yet another ‘community’ thing just that has been invented to be taken over for a billion dollar in two years”.
Please do interact. Here. Show that you care. Your system has some flaws and we are trying to discuss those. PLEASE do take part in those discussions - because you do not know it better without that kind of feedback.
