hey #patreon users, please consider going to https://patreon.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and filling out a comment about the new fee system if you have strong feelings about them! if you're unhappy, tell them why; if you wish there were other options, tell them what you want those options to be. users of a platform deserve to be heard.
(there are a bunch of posts about the changes under the patreon tag here if you need to get caught upt)
this applies whether you're a creator or a patron! it affects everyone who uses patreon.
sample #patreon comment template:
"hi, i'm a [patron/creator] here, and i'm not happy about the new fee system. i understand that it means creators take a larger cut, but pushing that cost onto the patron risks losing some of the lower pledges. this change affects me because [i'm a patron with many $1 pledges and this may become prohibitively expensive for me/i'm a creator that relies on many $1 pledges]
please consider adding options such as [creator opt-in to cover chargers, patron opt-in to pay charges, etc.]."
@modgethanc We also started a petition in case that helps - agreed that feedback should be first port of call though!
