Regarding Patreon

As of Wednesday the 13th, 2017, Patreon announced that they’re not going to do this. I’ll follow up whenever we get the new numbers, if we even do: this may have burned them hard enough that they’ll not attempt anything of the sort again. I’ll be interested to know if there’s any benefit to larger pledges, as they forced me to completely overhaul my whole way of thinking about my pledge structure, and then abandoned it (for the purposes of their abandoned plan, people were getting more effectiveness out of larger pledges, and I had to acknowledge that)
