When the heck am I getting charged?????????
Hey you! So I thought I'd just explain how pledges are gonna work here and when exactly you'll get charged for an upload, and what you'll be charged FOR, since I have a new cartoon coming out tomorrow.

So, first thing's first, if you've pledged to receive a reward, you'll get that reward AFTER your first charge, with a couple of exceptions: the Executive Producer credit and access to the Patreon feed. You'll get those the minute you become a patron! ...I think! If you can't see the Patreon feed please let me know! This particular post is public, so EVERYBODY can see it, but if you've pledged $3 (a little over two British pounds) or more, you should be seeing other posts as well.

Second, assuming you are a paying patron, you will only be charged for animations that I upload to my YouTube channel. No random live action videos or comics or art pieces or anything like that, just the animations. In addition, if I believe the animation is not something I should charge people for, you won't be charged for that either. I'm still very much getting used to the way things work on Patreon, so if I fuck something up and you get charged for something that you don't think you should have, please let me know immediately.

Finally, when I do release a cartoon (which normally happens every 1 - 3 months, I'm trying to shoot for monthly cartoons but YOU KNOW HOW IT IS), sometimes I'll do something special like posting it on Newgrounds or TopBanter.net or tweeting an unlisted link to it before the actual release. If that happens, you will not be charged until the public YouTube release date and time. For example, if I release a video on Newgrounds at 12:30 on a Tuesday, and the full public YouTube release is at 3:30 on a Wednesday, I won't actually claim it until 3:30 that Wednesday. Incidentally, this also gives you the chance to redact your pledge (or offer a pledge!) prior to getting charged having already seen the cartoon.

Alright! Hope that clears some things up! I'll see you guys tomorrow at 3:30pm EDT. If you have any more questions, hit me up on Twitter! (@mrmattimation)

You are a god. You are THE god. And you're married to Kim Kardashian. On top of everything from the previous tiers, every time you successfully fund a cartoon, you can ask me to animate ANYTHING (keeping it around 15 to 30 seconds) and I'll send it to you as an animated gif or a SWF file so you can do whatever you want with it.
