It’s certainly not their job to ensure anyone’s growth.
But, is it so much to ask for an actual search function to help build a community within the site itself?
I don’t think I’m asking for a lot here.
I personally would like a search function, so I am able to find creators within the platform itself to help support. I can’t do that. That’s all I’m asking, and I don’t think it’s a whole lot to ask of a website that by all rights, should have at least some sort of navigable search.
What is essentially a crowdfunding site has no way to discover new and exciting projects. I find that weird. Maybe it’s just me…but the entire point of CROWD-funding, is to build a support network ie. crowd, that is interested in the projects brought to this specific site.
It’s essentially crowdfunding. But, oh one thing, bring your own crowd.
I feel like the only one that finds this odd.
I also would like to support creators that aren’t the most popular, nor making the most money. I want to support the newcomers, and creators making a little. And right now, there is absolutely no way for me to find those creators due to the lack of a navigable search function on the site.
It’s about building a support network with your peers. I want Patreon to assist in fostering that kind of network because it simply makes sense to do-so.
