Hi again. Sorry the polls are a bit late again, but it is how it is – really not much to be done at this point. I am trying to recover a bit, as I said last time; but I have not had much success as of yet… especially since I have a bunch of crap that I need/want to do relatively soon. I effectively have not really taken a solid vacation in years, and find that idea weirdly hard to do at the moment; so all I could really manage is signing up for some day trip things later in the month via REI. Hopefully that will help things out a bit – but that is at least two weeks away… so there is still some downtime before that where I need to figure out some other things.
In other news, I did finally hear back from Patreon’s policy team again – not long after making my last post, as I figured. Allegedly I can change my page from NSFW to SFW and not have to do this bullshit “””id verification””” crap – but we will see what happens. They also mentioned that there is no batch post editing… (because I asked) so I would likely have to go through all 400 something of my Patreon posts over seven years individually and delete most of them, or perhaps wipe my page entirely and just start over – if that is even an option. It would be a sickening amount of unnecessary work to go through all that and delete most of it… but if that is my only option, I guess I don’t have much choice – that is better than probable identity theft. Again, its not like I was making much on there anyway… so I guess it isn’t as bad as it could be.
This does effectively mean I cannot give out any notable rewards on there either… as it will be relegated to SFW only, and basically just be a tip jar; but I will see if I can figure something out. Again, see what happens; not at all happy about this whole mess… especially not happy about how Patreon is just waving their hands at the whole affair and pretending like they are completely innocent in this, when they are going along with what is allegedly the demands of mastercard with no real opposition that I have seen. (I detest companies that show a lack of regard/care for their customers; either some or the whole – as one almost always tends to lead to the other.)
Last time, there were two polls – the first asked how you felt about onomatopoeias in adult story sets, and most people seemed to be either neutral or positive… so that will be taken into consideration. I personally am not overly fond of them, but I have considered using some in upcoming stuff if possible… so I may give that a shot whenever I can get to it. The second poll from last time asked about how much clothing you preferred during sex in adult images, and most of you clearly preferred either no clothing or as little clothing as possible – which is good to know, and matches what I tend to see in most content. I am fairly certain it is often done for convenience, in many cases – but it does also help show things off a bit better… so fair enough. Thanks to those who voted, and please go ahead and vote in the new polls as well. 🙂
There are also two new polls up – and they are below and on the right; so please vote in those. The first poll asks how you feel about Halloween in general – pretty straightforward. The second is a classic poll brought back once more – where you can vote for your favorite of my main OCs… and you can pick up to three (3); so definitely let me know your thoughts on those!
No idea what may come this month, but as stated last time – I am planning on prioritizing the Halloween side renders and such. Other than that, I have a ton of back end crap to try and do at some point – including updating some of my other pages that I have been meaning to for months, like Redbubble, trying to make a side render gallery here, and of course, going through all my Patreon posts in order to try and make it SFW.
Finally, if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle $15 tier, and I currently plan to just have it remain like that for what little time my Patreon likely has left) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Any interest, comments, follows, likes, votes, or support really does help. It is hard to keep making new stuff when nobody seems to care. Following me on DA/slushe/pixiv/twitter/whatever doesn’t cost anything – and that all does help spread the word about my work… so please consider doing some of that if you haven’t already.
