Sometimes it really helps to yell, scream, and let companies know they are screwing up. Patreon heard all of those yells and has decided they better find a different way to go when it comes to collecting fees for their service. As of right now they haven't said what they are going to do, but not rolling out their proposed changes from last week is a good place to start. I know it will take a long time for us to earn back your trust. But we are utterly devoted to your success and to getting you sustainable, reliable income for being a creator. We will work harder than ever to build you tools, functionality, and income, and our team won’t rest until Patreon is making that happen.
