For anyone sufficiently pissed with Patreon they’d sooner fund elsewhere i have set up a Maker Support page (on advice from a few people on twitter, many thanks) http://www.makersupport.com/noelplum
My Patreon is still available but, quite honestly, i could uinderstand people being very reticent to start supporting anyone new on patreon right now, whilst these changes are hanging over them http://www.patreon.com/noelplum99
Or paypal payable to email@example.com
For all of those who already support me on Patreon and are still standing by me and my material I can only thank you.
For now, my advice is to CONSOLIDATE YOUR PLEDGES. If you pledge x$ per video then increase that pledge to 4x$ per video BUT set the same amount of 4x$ per video as a monthly maximum. That will vastly reduce what you are paying in additional fees!
I’m afraid if you spread your pledges over many different people then a Patreon shafting is unavoidable, as things stand. It is as if they are forcing you to support one or two people only with bigger amounts!
