Apparently, Patreon had a major glitch (see below cut). I don’t think any of my patrons were affected but anyone supporting via patreon may want to make sure they were not impacted.
The quoted material below is a quotation. And a link.
Patreon changed its billing from California to Dublin for this month. So a lot of banks rejected the transactions as possible fraud.
This would be recoverable … except that Patreon’s systems seem to have automatically wiped all patronage relationships with a bounced transaction!
