Patreon has listened to the calls by creators and patrons and has decided to not implement their payment model of charging patrons service fees in addition to their monthly pledge. While it's commendable that Patreon has recognized and apologized for their errors, many creators lost patrons and income upon the announcement.
I'm happy to have my patrons. You help me thrive. As a result of your pledges, I live and create. Please know this. You are vital to what I'm able to do.
