Patreon killed itself (behind the scenes)

TRANSCRIPT OF CALL BETWEEN MATT CHRISTIANSEN AND JACQUELINE HART OF PATREON, 12.20.2018

JACQUELINE: So I wanted to reach out to you - we’ve had a lot of creators on Patreon with concerns. And there was obviously a lot of concern last week, so I wanted to follow up with creators on the platform. So even though you didn’t reach out to us, we had others that reached out, so I wanted to make sure that we heard directly from creators about what their concerns would be and so that’s really the reason I set up this call.

MATT: Sure. I’ve definitely got a lot of notes and a lot of questions that I’d like to ask. I wanted to begin by just noting the scale of the loss on my account, if you’re comfortable with that.

JACQUELINE:: Yes. Yes.

MATT: I did the numbers this morning. I am down 39% of my total patrons, 42% of the money on my account. I’ve been on Patreon 2 years and 3 months now, so over 2 years of work on Patreon at stake here. I don’t know for sure - I’m estimating that roughly an entire year’s gain has been wiped out. Everything that I was able to grow over 2018 is gone now. I just hope everyone at Patreon understands the scale of the damage that the decision that they made has caused to uninvolved creators. And I hope you would understand why almost half of my patronage would leave given the decision that you made.

JACQUELINE: Yes. And that’s obviously one of the reasons that I wanted to set up this call, because - sorry, one small thing. I just wanted to make sure that we’re not recording. Like, I’m not recording on my side.
