Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

We listened to feedback, and promptly fucked it up.
Dec 13, 2017 - 9:52 PM - by specious_reasons
I'm surprised that I haven't read much here about Patreon.

With Patreon's current structure, a patron pledges X, and the creators got somewhere between 85-93% of X. High, inconsistent fees are a common complaint. Also, patrons don't get billed until the next month - Patreon claims the #1 requested feature is up-front billing.

Patreon takes this feedback and implements a new payment scheme where:
  • Patrons pay the transaction fees - $0.35 + 2.9%.
  • Patrons pay the fees per pledge, not per payment.

I don't mind paying the transaction fee - it means that the creators get more money, great! It's that second change that fucks it all up.

Basically, if I have 10 $1 pledges per month, I'm paying $3.79.
If I have 1 $10 pledge per month, I'm paying $0.99. I, as a Patreon giver, am disincentivized to giving smaller amounts to many people, and would naturally either give up on Patreon or concentrate my giving to certain creators.

So, pretty much they fucked this up entirely, especially for those creators with lots of smaller pledges.

They've admitted their mistake already and are not rolling out these fee changes. Although, lots of creators have had lots of people back out as soon as the news hit, and they probably won't get all of them back.

The fucking orange asshole declared Jerusalem 'the capital of Israel'. Never mind that East Jerusalem is not even IN Israel or that literally all the other countries in the world are opposed, even this disgustingly pro-Israeli country with the most pro-Israeli cabinet we ever had has opposed it.

We need sanctions on the US...
