@kai I don't know if I could do it without rewards, I'd feel bad.
@micahdraws sorry, didn't mean to misrepresent you but I'm glad you replied!
Ah I see this is part of a bigger thread!
If you don't want to do Patreon, that's okay. If you do want to do it, that's also okay. The changes won't affect you directly that much unless you have a substantial following.
That said, they are prone to seriously shady operations. So if you want to do that kind of thing, it might be worth looking at another option.
