Carpe Blogiem: Where's My Gorram Patreon Specials?!
If you're wondering where your patreon specials are at as I explained last month I'm going to be switching up the release schedule. Instead of twice a month on Saturdays the specials will now be released at the beginning of the coming month on the first Saturday of the month.
Why? Well I'll be frank (you can be Joe if you want) - I've had people coming in, collecting the new material, and then not paying and skipping out. I've struggled for months with a proper way to do right by you guys and by myself. For now, this is the way I've chosen. I completely understand if some of you decide that this is no longer worthwhile for you. Thus, the two Patreon Specials for June will be uploaded on July 2nd, 2016.
Two additional notes:
1) I am searching for a way to keep the archive functioning, but not allow folks to just scoop and drop. There should be a reason to stick with me long term and I think that's going to be one of them. Likely I'll keep 6 months worth of specials active and keep the rest offline. I'll let you know what I decide, but for now it stays as it is.
2) If anyone gets declined for payment two months in a row and doesn't respond when I contact them I'm going to automatically remove them from the patron list. If it goes three months in a row regardless I'm going to remove them from the list. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but I'm running a semi-sort of business here and as much as I like to give away free content it's not fair to the people (you) who take the time to support my endeavours.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me here or email me.
Thanks again for everything you guys do for me. :-)

P. S. I just started watching Firefly for the first time today and Gorram is my new favorite word. No mocking me because I'm a decade or so behind. :-P
