It’s extremely frustrating that Patreon has these two boxes checked by default.
I would never – under any circumstance – expect that my personal support of another creator would result in an email going out to my entire community.
This is a pretty big strike and a total trust buster moving forward… I never opted-in to share my pledges and didn’t even know this existed until several patrons pointed out the email notification.
I strongly encourage Patreon to default to permission-based messaging across the board.
It’s shit like this that makes me reconsider supporting creators in the future and continuing to use Patreon in general.
UPDATE: I’ve had a few deleted pledges within 20-minutes of the notification going out… good job, guys.
