Hey, everyone. I hope you're doing well.
I recently brought some changes to my Patreon page, as I grew increasingly unsatisfied with the previous rewarding system. Over the past few months, I matured the idea that reward tiers were unnecessary compared to what I've been able to provide thus far. Not only were they inefficient, but also exclusive and divisional.
As I discussed in my Discord server, a large portion of my creative process is already out in the open free of charge. There's nothing extra worth paywalling for bragging rights, in my eyes. This is who I am, and this is what I do. I take for granted that whoever wants to support me already knows what kind of content I can provide for them. It's no secret to anyone. My creative history is like an open book.
In light of these thoughts, I decided to step forward and rethink how anyone might contribute to the project in the simplest, most direct, and transparent means possible. There would be pay-what-you-want donations, and no more reward tiers. I would only credit my supporters because I simply view it as the right thing to do and worth expressing my gratitude towards. Nothing more, nothing less.
You get what you pay for, essentially, and you now have the option to do so on your own terms. And that's about it. Stay tuned, stay safe.
