Off-topic: Patreon just sent me a letter saying: “A new service fee of 2.9% + $0.35 will be paid by patrons for each individual pledge starting on December 18th.”
This seems horrible for $1 patrons. It looks like a money grab. I hope people doing well on Patreon get out ahead of this. I will probably cancel my pledges if this goes through.

P.S. If you think about it, Patreon’s only real job is to aggregate pledges in order to minimize credit/bank transaction fees…

By charging $0.35 for every $1 pledge (every month) Patreon will be acting like a secondary creditor/bank transaction service; and I don’t know what value if any Patreon actually brings to the table.

This is bizarre! This is news.

If everyone pledges $1 to Jimquisition. Jimquisition is currently at $13,433. This means Jim has 14,104 $1 pledges. (95%) And Patreon gets 35% of that (on top, with patrons charged service-fees.) So, ignoring the 2.9% Patreon makes off the top of Jim: $4936. And all of the patrons (us) really pay in total 4936+14,104 dollars.

In what world does Patreon deserve (or require) this much of a managerial cut?

2.9% is a pretty standard merchant account fee for credit card processing.
35 cents would be revenue to continue maintaining the site, assuming that any existing fees are not enough to handle employees, server maintenance, DNS, and hosting fees. Profit would also play a small role, depending on actual expenses.

In other words, normal. Unpleasant and potentially unnecessary, but normal.

Patreon isn’t a credit card service. The reason people used it is because if you have 20 $1 pledges, then that’s $20 to charge your bank/credit account. Patreon is supposed to manage that. But here it is no longer managing that (it’s trying to grab all of this money for nothing) and is so providing next to no value. It’s just a leach layer on top of the credit service, so it’s either going to die or say: Woops, typo. Stay tuned.

This is building steam over on Twitter. Everyone’s reaction is the same. It looks real.

Netflix isn’t a credit card either, but they still pay 2.9% in fees every transaction when they take money out for their services. The difference is that the cost is part of the monthly plan, while Patreon is adding it in addition to the pledge. I would assume this now means that 100% of a pledge will go to the Patreon member while the patron handles the management costs. Even if that isn’t the case, 2.1% (Patreon’s old cut) of $1 isn’t anything even close to sustainable even in large volume. 2.9% also adds up, and has been used as… Read more »

I made an ask at Jim here: patreon (.) com/posts/15742830 I don’t think people understand this. Even the discussion on Twitter doesn’t seem to grasp the economics of it. Netflix provides huge bandwidth and movies. Patreon just provides a way to exchange money. They are not comparable. Patreon should be compared to PayPal. They are supposedly a way to aggregate small fees. Credit card companies are not good at small fees, because they wire the money between banks. Patreon is supposed to do this in the background, on its database, which costs practically nothing, and then once a month interface… Read more »

IF I was going to go from $1 to $5 I would pledge 5 $1 pledges to 5 new “creators.”

It’s not interesting to give increasing amounts of money. That is an outdated business model, and certainly not unique to Patreon. It is only interesting because it promised to lets thousands or millions of people pay for something with small pledges, and not one person pay for something with a thousand or million dollar pledge. That’s passe.

Take it up with Visa and Mastercard, Patreon is just trying to stay in business so we can have *some* pledges instead of *no* pledges at all.

But by all means, direct your attention to the relatively small company offering a valuable service and trying to stay in business. I’m sure the massive multinational corporations dodging taxes, pushing psychological manipulation/simulated gambling, and making headlines for record profits appreciate your willingness to let them off the hook just this once to take that mean old Patreon down a peg.

Dude, this is probably the next Jimquisition episode. You don’t seem to grasp the scope of it.

EDIT: At least in the U.S. when you buy an apple with a credit/debit card, you don’t pay the ~$0.30 transaction fee. The merchant does. But that’s not even what this is about.

Brick and Mortar stores utilize the “loss leader” to encourage other sales of actually profitable goods, meaning that on some products either no expenses are accounted for outside of product acquisition or they have a mark-up just high enough to cover taxes. You go in for an apple, you leave with a loaf of bread, some peanut butter, and maybe some chocolate chips as well. Plus many people pay with cash or check, which have lower fees or no fees outside of government taxes to offset processing fees. Patreon only has one service, they can’t loss-lead it because then they… Read more »

This is a silly comparison. With merchants, that fee is baked into the cost of the goods; there’s no altruistic decision on Stop’n’Shop’s part to absorb that cost for your benefit. Patreon doesn’t have that option, so they take the money directly.

@Anton, don’t know which posts you are replying to, but it sounds like you are stuck on the bank transaction fee/program which, again, has nothing to do with this development at all. This is an addition service-fee (like for providing a social-media platform) that is untethered from banking fees, which previously what Patreon had been charging to cover, but in a kind of fuzzy way because they are supposed to be aggregating these fees… and they probably still do, but now they just want to charge Jim 40% like a cut-throat agent.

What?! No, really. What?! Is it hyperbole time? Since it was only announced yesterday I’d hardly call this change apocalyptic. Jim disapproves (I do as well), but he doesn’t have the same righteous indignation you seem to have.

drownedsummer

This is a hyperbolic reaction and Jim has commented on it but that is still quite far from it being the subject of the upcoming Jimquisition.

This isn’t something bizarre as it is a transaction fee, which is far from bizarre as it is actually something quite normal and quite mundane. Yes, this does have the possibility of effecting quite a lot of Patreons due to the additional fees which are attached and I suspect many are highly funded by $1 pledges. A lot of people may choose not to fund people in this situation.

Because I like beating dead horses, here are the alternate revenue methods Patreon could employ to satisfy your specific needs of not wanting to pay 40 cents. 1.) Merchandising. Partner with top-earning content creators and sell boxed retail goods with their brands and likenesses. Has its own costs, but is generally profitable if done smartly and they could sell Patreon brand merch as well. 2.) Offset Pricing. No fees to patrons at all, instead off-load that in its entirety onto content creators. Same net effect for the service, considerably less internet backlash. People only complain when it affects them personally.… Read more »

I’m aware that Patreon has to make it’s money somehow and I have the intellectual and academic understanding that what they’re asking for is actually a reasonable amount. That being said; I get why people are upset. From a personal standpoint I’m kind of a cheap “nickel and diming” kind of person. I refuse to buy games from digital storefronts that charge tax even if it’s only a dollar more or so because I know there’s others that don’t.

I specifically said in the beginning that it sucks, but they kept saying it was not only unreasonable but worthy of outrage. I am aware apples are not loss leaders, but I saw the point they were trying to make and went around it to explain how things actually work. If Patreon had a viable alternative (I listed the ones I could think of), then that service should and will be used. Apply market pressure, enforce change by spending wisely. But it doesn’t, and it also doesn’t make enough money off $1 donations to keep the status quo. If you… Read more »

Ok, so yeah, that’s confusing, I’m not sure why won’t just call themselves Zenimax publishing or whatever, but they’re you go. Granted, Todd Howard did open his big mouth about the switch.

Hello mr moderater, why are my comments taking ages to get approved? It’s bad enough that I can’t get a password reset sent through to my hotmail account so I can continue with my initial log in, but now my new account isn’t working?

Justin McDaniel

Looking through moderation, it appears as if today is the first day posting with this account. The moderation system holds all comments from users who haven’t had ANY comments approved yet (this helps with spam and people creating multiple accounts to just harass people or Jim). I come on once a day (at least) and weed through moderation approving what’s needed. You should now find that your comments have been approved, and most should be auto approved (unless moderation doesn’t like it, which sometimes I have no idea why it grabs some comments).

Just a thought: Generally speaking every time Skyrim has a patch released it basically breaks the entire infrastructure of the game as far as mods are concerned. Considering mods are the lifeblood of Skyrim and Bethesda knows this to the point they are constantly trying to make us pay for them I put forth this theory; Bethesda doesn’t want to fuck with the mod ecosystem when said ecosystem has already fixed all these problems. My assumption is they just don’t see the effort it would take to fix bugs as actually being worth it in the long run; most Skyrim… Read more »

Except, Switch has no mod support. The fact they left all these well documented bugs in, bugs that have been fixed with the Unofficial Patch mod, is not excusable. Also, general patches don’t break mods, or not all of them. Now, there was a problem with the Special Edition and how it negated the Script Extender, an essential mod which many other mods rely on. It took a while for the script Extender to be updated, and many PC gamers stuck with the original build of Skyrim (despite Bethesda giving Special Edition away for free to PC gamers), so they… Read more »

Unlike you (apparently), Jim is smart enough to not succumb to labelling people “liars and frauds” until such time this is an actual established fact. Given that SC is not yet released, there is no evidence whatsoever that the game isn’t going to deliver on it’s goals (indeed the latest betas show what they’re building will have no equal anywhere). BTW, $172 M is still chump change to the likes of Rockstar and Bungie who both managed to spend north of an eye-watering $500 M developing GTA V and Destiny, respectively.

Star Citizen. On one side you have 172 million dollars. On the other side of the equation you have Chris Roberts and his family who are very rich now, getting richer, and a fucked-up, buggy “pre-alpha”. As I said, the technique: always promise, never deliver, ask for more, as long as there is no official release the flensing can go on forever and no-one… Read more »

Rationally, I agree with you over the original post… But Roberts is now selling virtual land. In a game that doesn’t exist yet. For $100 a plot. And yeah, you can absolutely say that “no one forces you to buy it”. No one forces you to buy microtransactions either. But it’s absolutely the same here – people with vulnerable mentalities are being exploited, except instead of being addicted to gambling, they’re addicted to pumping money into the hypothetical universe Roberts is making.

And here is why Jim doesn’t go after Star Citizen in that same group I’d imagine. 1. You /technically/ can’t call it out the same way until something actually releases or the company inevitably goes under and is revealed to have been a massive Ponzi Scheme. Until then the fact that it might someday come out and prove everyone wrong prevents anyone from being able to ‘prove’ they are lying out their asses worse than the other examples. 2. The Star Citizen Defense Force comes out immediately to call anyone who questions their beloved Ponzi Scheme out a liar and… Read more »

This video caused me to stop and really come to terms with the fact that the reason my Bethesda games are still installed on my PC (TES III-V, Fallout 3 & NV) despite me seldom playing them these days is because I’m terrified of the work I’ll have to do to get them set up again if I ever uninstall them.

That said, when my hard drive died and I had to reinstall my entire game library, you know what game worked perfectly – mods and all – simply by copy-pasting the old Steam folder’s contents into the new one? Fallout: New Vegas, a game that’s been known to crash if so much as someone in the house sneezes while you play it. Still no idea how I got away with that.

The Elder Scrolls is much more than the sum of its bugs.

There’s a reason I, Jim, and so many others love Skyrim. It’s world is enthralling, begging to be explored at your leisure, tempting you to try different play styles.

Yeah, it’s a silly, but well voice acted companion mod. Recorder is a pretty young woman who wants to travel with you to witnes your story, and it’s heavily hinted she’s some kind of time traveling historian on assignment. She can be a bit doofy, likes violence, and has a bit of a irreverent personality. I like her much better than the more popular Sofia, who’s entire gimmick is she’s a drunken asshole.

I didn’t like the speech system in Fallout 4, but I thought the actual dialogue was starting to get pretty good. Some of the characters were actually top notch, even. The overall narrative, however, was as half-hearted as I’ve played in an RPG in a while. I also thought the gameworld, while fascinating in many moments, felt empty all too often. I hope Bethesda can learn from Fallout 4 and Skyrim when they launch their next major game.

And the Bosmer can import lumber from other regions, they just can’t harm plant life in Valenwood. They do use bone and skins a lot, though. Valenwood would be cool, if they got the jungle right.

Akaviri is essentially unexplorable. Several emperors tried and failed, with only one expedition ever even coming close to succeeding when they weren’t immediately massacred in the borderlands. Instead, they taught the explorers the combat techniques of the Blades. I don’t see them retconning the unexplorable reason ever, since it is “mysterious” and they would have to have a new sentient (playable) race.

They have since been at war with the Tiger Men and their dragon emperor, who say they will conquer Tamriel once they’ve killed all the Tsaesci.

I would argue that Tamriel is in no position to go to war of any kind, conquest or defensive. Those thousands of years have been the equivalent of our Dark Ages, with general culture and technology actually declining and not progressing. If the invasion does happen as you suggest for a game storyline, we will either be the hero trying to prevent it despite the government wanting to stop us or be the one trying to overthrow an incumbent Dominion subjugation for the Akavir to make their way into the White-Gold Tower.

The lore would be slavery. That’s what was hinted at all through Skyrim if the Thalmor succeeded in their subjugation of the region, the original Dominion in the Three Alliances War was the Altmer and their slaves turned allies out of necessity, and one of the most documented traits of the High Kingdoms was their slave labor (leading to the rebellion). That would also be a nice segue into the “nameless prisoner” trope that TES has used for every hero character.

Shoot, while we’re all just activating our nerd modes, I’ll hop in too. Valenwood makes a hell of a lot of sense to do for the next game, from a narrative perspective. Every single game (excluding Arena) has revolved around the sundering of a Tower in some form. At this point Valenwood’s Tree-Sap and High Rock’s Adamantine tower are the only ones left.

Personally I want them to go to either Hammerfell or Elsweyr.

So if Skyrim is the Cockroach what does that make GTAV, the grass?

Bad joke sorry. Agreed though, only bought it twice (3 times if you count the free legendary version) and fully agree with you. Like you said in the past given how many times have to patch their games, it’s quite crappy how they through them under the bus for their paid mods.

There’s not much to say about the Creation Club. When it launched, it had nothing worth paying money for. Last I checked, it still doesn’t. The problem is that they’re offering up things that are (relatively) easy to mod, so there’s already similar mods, or someone could just duplicate it in the free mods. What they need to push is new areas, new quest lines, voiced companions. Things that take real effort, and can’t be replicated easily. It’s also these kinds of things that the Creation Club could excel at. Imagine a modder putting together a Bruma like quest mod,… Read more »

Technically it hasn’t been continually updated. GTA Online has seen regular significant increases in terms of content to the point that GTA V & GTA Online may as well be two separate titles. GTA V however has not had any changes to its content since the few updates that were in the PC release.
