Patreon shenanigans with math Show more
Starting 18-Dec, pledgees are getting a SMALLER cut, not larger.
Before, if you pledged $1.38, Patreon took 20% of that, and gave the pledgee $1.10
Now, if you pledge $1.38, Patreon takes 31%, giving the pledgee $0.95.
Also, Patreon raised the minimum pledge from $1 to $1.38, but words it as "$1 pledge" with fees to come later, hoping you don't notice. We need to save that money for our post-neutrality ISP fees!
