Hi guys, sorry for the gap in posts but I have been busy this past week with this. As the title suggests, I have successfully gotten my patreon page changed to SFW – which means I can keep it for the time being. However, I am still trying to figure out what I can do in terms of tiers/rewards with this new page… if anything. I can only post the “simpler” things on here from now on – along with text updates; but that is just the way it has to be since Patreon changed their policy again… hopefully this works out somehow.
Not much to announce yet in terms of new stuff or other progress this month; just getting this reclassification mess done was the most important thing since the cutoff was the end of this year. It also took more out of me than I thought, since I had to physically check over 400 posts… (and delete a third of them or more) due to not being specifically told what the issue with my page was when I first applied to have it reclassified. (I first applied last friday – and had to message them back twice, waiting a full weekday each time.)
It probably would have been easier to just give them my personal information instead of removing half my posts and reclassifying my page – but I am someone who actually stands up for what they believe; and I believe that is completely pointless bullshit that endangers all their NSFW creators – and puts them all at risk of full identity theft for no valid reason… (they allege it was a demand by mastercard to help prevent abuse/underage content – but anyone doing those things would obviously just lie and use someone else’s ID, which makes it entirely pointless) so fuck that shit. Not like I had much of anything to lose, honestly – but even if I did, I just don’t see myself going along with that crap. (Being someone with integrity who actually stands up for what they believe has some drawbacks.) I hope other Patreon creators in the same position are doing ok, and that nothing bad happens… but giving out your personal information and a photo ID can never end positively – and potentially end very badly.
I hope to be back with some new side renders for the holidays if nothing else… but we will have to see exactly what happens in the coming weeks; the weather here is really bad right now, (so I can’t do much at the moment) and I hate to promise/suggest things that might not happen.
Anyway, if you want to help support/motivate me in making more content, you can check out my redone Patreon page here (as I said, more changes likely coming soon): 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.
