A QUICK UPDATE!
Allo allo! Just wanted to quickly check in and say: OH BOY! We've ruddy well gone and smashed it. I've got a few bits and bobs I need to sort out this week before I can kick things off properly, so you'll have to bear with me for a couple of days. If you've got the time for a BIG update, check out the Q&A video I posted on Friday: http://www.patreon.com/creation?hid=243771 (if you don't have time, I'll be putting up a TLDR version that relates specifically to the Patreon stuff soon.) The Patreon tech-chaps are being super-useful, and are currently working on a voting system that I requested over the weekend. I've no idea how long it will take, but it should be a really cool way of giving Benefit Spongers a chance to help shape what I do / help me accurately gauge your reactions to thoughts & ideas. One question I'd like to clear up ASAP is how people feel about the weekly update & Q&A video being available to non-backers: Some have expressed that they'd love access to these in the form of an audio podcast (which would be really tough to do whilst still restricting access) while others have said that they'd be happy enough if it was just the ability to ask questions that remained exclusive. I'm very cautious of making any changes that go against what was originally offered - and what people have chosen to pledge for - so a Benefit Sponger vote might be the best way to proceed. I'll poke you once the functionality is ready, and we'll take things from there. I hadn't anticipated that so many people would see these weekly updates as anything other than bonus fluff, and this apparent demand is now jarring with the fact that I didn't want to put desirable content behind paywalls. ANYWAY, things will start on the channel very soon - but in the meantime thanks again for your support and patience: I'm not going to try and pretend that I know what I'm doing, as this is something that hasn't really been done before. Together, though - we'll work it out. Speak soon! Matt
