Did Patreon Change Something?

#1 Post by TheMasterOfOats »

So I'm too broke to be a patron of Twokinds, but I still take the opportunity to write comments and discuss things on Patreon regarding Sunday sketches and the like. I hopped on to patreon to get a closer look at the new sketch, but it said "You must be a Patron to write comments." Is this a decision that Tom makes for his personal Patreon, or did Patreon implement a ToS change?

I need me some story comments, dangit.
I like to ask the important questions in life.
Where are my socks?
Do I play too much Minecraft?
How is mitosis?
Who the is Kristen Wiig shirt?

You know, deep stuff.

I am not patron either. My currency exchange makes it rather complicated.
But for what I know only sketches that are deemed to risque are blocked anything else is supposed to be public.
There are three things that motivate people: Money, fear and love.

Yeah, I knew that too. But now only patrons can comment, which kinda stifles a lot of conversation.

Is this a decision that Tom makes? Or just Patreon. Kinda unfortunate for those too broke to support but still love the Patreon crowd.

I did a quick search and it looks like this is a change Patreon made, although it's generated surprisingly little noise online. If that's the case I think it's a reasonable change for most Patreon creators.

Tom's Patreon is something of a minority in the way it's used since his is almost entirely public except for those posts required to be behind a paywall by the terms of service. Most users don't do that. So with that being said I guess Tom's Patreon is an unfortunate casualty of this policy change.
