Smarten up Patreon.
I was thinking about throwing some $1s around now that I'm getting some extra income from Patreon, but at $1.38 I'd rather just save it or use it somewhere else. It probably doesn't seem like a lot to the VC-juiced people at Patreon, but that's a lot of money.
It's about 1/12 of a domain name for a project, or an experiment on AWS, or more than halfway to going out for coffee with a friend at our favorite coffee shop.
I have no opinion if these new fees are "fair" ones whatever that means. They certainly bias against small donations though. It's not even so much who pays the fees. I see the psychological elements. But I assume a lot of creators (and patrons) would be just as upset if the creators were now only seeing 62 cents out of every dollar with the rest going to "hidden" fees.
