well, here it is, My First Post.

I'd like to thank anyone who encouraged me to launch this thing or offered to help me manage stuff, or just anyone who's ever been a patron in the past before we had cool things like this.

I'd also like to specially thank anyone who sent me questions about my patreon, they helped me think critically about what I was doing and how I was doing it, and how to better improve things for both me and you.

On that note, I'd like to be transparent about something: I may change/redact my reward tiers or bonuses or anything of that nature if I find any instances of abuse to the system.

I know this is really nebulous and the patreon hasn't really even started yet, but I'm well aware that there are ways to game this and some unscrupulous people may eventually do that. I'm usually not a proponent of "punish everyone because of a few" but this is my livelihood and if I must drastically change stuff, I will. However rest assured that in the event of a major rehaul of something or other, I will try to see that my honest, established patrons still get rewarded in some way.

And on that note, I'd like to extend a request to please excuse my dust as I get started here. I really have never managed something like this before so I expect there might be some bumps and dents to work out.

Looking to the future, I hope to open commission slots through here on a special price tier at some point. I am still deciding at what price(s) to offer these and of what number of them to make available.

I am also very much still open to advice and suggestions and I will try to read and respond to each message I get.
