Double Check Your Patreon Pledges!
Hey everyone. I just wanted to drop a line re: the recent issue over at Patreon. The gist (as I understand it) was that Patreon moved their headquarters or billing offices or something to the UK and this sent up red flags with the banks when it came time to charge patron’s cards for the month. This resulted in a lot of patron’s cards being declined. While Patreon has yet to issue an official statement about this (afaik) it has for the most part been cleared up by patrons checking in with their banks and letting them know the charges weren’t fraudulent. But myself as well as other Patreon creators have patrons who choose to support us but don’t generally check emails or really keep up with our Patreons in general. So many patrons are still marked as declined, probably have no idea and could be missing out on the content that they think they’ve paid for for the month. Many creators lost a significant amount of pledges this month because of Patreon’s oversight. I fortunately wasn’t hit too hard, but once everything was cleared up, I did lose about $15 in pledges from long time supporters. A good friend of mine lost over $100+. Patreons with more patrons were probably hit a lot harder.
So if you pledge to creators on Patreon, please double check that your card wasn’t declined for August. I know these artists would sure appreciate your continued support. And if you’re someone who’s been thinking of throwing some support toward your favorite artists, now would be a really good time. Thanks so much!
I’m going to crosspost this across my various accounts and hope that my declined patrons and other’s declined patrons may actually see it because they may be missing messages from Patreon. Hope you’re all having a rad day. <3
Hey! My name's Jaymz and I live in Portland, OR. I'm currently drawing 4 comic series': Willem, Devil Spy, Chunky Skunk and Wings Over Hyrule. I also have 2 completed comic series': Split Screen and Arrowhead. If you're interested in reading any of my comics, just go to my gallery and select one of the folders on the left.
I'm very active on Deviantart and love getting messages and comments, so don't be shy, talk to me! You can also chat with me on Google Hangouts: Jaymzeecat@gmail.com . I don't RP and I don't take requests (sorry!) but you can ask me anything, I'm pretty much an open book.
I'm in my late thirties, I'm chubby, I'm vegan. I love cats and birds, vintage kitchen stuff and toys. I love fat people and redheads (as you can probably tell by my art, haha). I also love characters with blue hair.
I have a separate account specifically for fat characters, just look for the account named Fattlestacks and add me to your watch if you want to see more fat boy drawings made by me. I don't update that account as much as I'd like since I am often busy working on my main comics, but I try! Anyway, thanks so much for checking out my work. I hope to get to know you all in time.
