In any case, for those wondering, if you've already been pledging to my page before, this won't affect your pledge in any way. This change only really effects anyone that just now decides to become a patron to my Patreon page; so if you haven't pledged to my page before and are considering doing it now, just be aware that you'll have to pay your pledge first (and right away) before being able to view my Patreon content.
Oh and if people have more questions about what exactly "charge upfront" is, along with how to set it up themselves for their own Patreon pages, you can learn about it in the link below.
Anyway, just wanted to give people more of an update on what I've been doing for my Patreon, and I hope you all are doing well. :)
