I hated it because it was so complicated. It was complicated for me as a creator, it was complicated for you as a Patron (or not-yet-Patron). So I asked myself, why? What was the driver?
It's because I thought I should.
Screw that. I don't comply to those thoughts anywhere else in my life, so why here? It's because creativity is so personal that we want to be valuable.
The truth is, you will only pledge if you find value in it. And the truth is, I don't need your money, but the value is in the exchange.
So I got rid of everything (almost). What do you think? Love your feedback.
