Patreon fee update: what it REALLY means for creators Show more
The update claims creators will now get 95% of *pledges*; this is true but misleading.
Before, 100% of patron payments were counted as pledges. Now, 97% MAX of patron payments are counted. With the flat fee of 35 cents per transaction, this means you will only get roughly 63% of the money your $1 pledge patrons are paying.
If almost all your pledges are $1 or $2, you aren't getting 95% of your patrons' payments - you're getting more like 70%
I've been trying to get these updates to auto-toot (teehee) from wordpress, but the wordpress plugin I found apparently doesn't recognize the webcomic plugin's categorization of the webcomic posts. :(
I suppose I should also find a way to get the image into the post as well... maybe this will work? http://randomdoodles.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/doodles963.jpg
Right, gonna post this! Quiet Up Here was my first 'serious' foray into making comics and actually finishing the darn things, rather than doing a couple of pages and then giving up. I drew and inked it during Inktober... 2015, I think? and then coloured and posted it early the next year.
It was done entirely traditionally other than the lettering, and possibly as a result has aged really badly, in my eyes 8,) But it was a start and I'm still glad I did it, even if it looks incredibly wonky.
Gonna post the rest in a thread, which may go incredibly wrong and out of order, but we'll see!
I also like video games (especially Blizzard games), writing (sometimes), and reading (when I find some spare time outside of playing video games). I program things for my day job, and sometimes for fun too. :)

I like art, video games, table top games (RPGs and otherwise), and programming.
