You do know Patreons have a follow button? You will get mails whenever a free post of that Patreon is released.
Also, you might not have heard but Patreon is on its best way to become just as bad as Youtube. It has already started strangulating adult content creators by banning harmless fringe sexual content. Not long before other "objectionable" content will be banned. Just like on Youtube.
I didn't know about the follow button.
...and that is an issue; if you have a great new feature, market it.
I did know about the new restrictions, but that only harms a select audience.
That's how it all starts. And then suddenly.... lootboxes.
I know I'm biased here because I am one of the select people it harms but what it shows is how much of a monopoly Patreon already has on crowd funding. It has power over people's livelihoods just as much as Youtube or Twitch and that is not a good thing. People are still sticking to Patreon despite the new rules that harm them because they can't get that kind of exposure on any other platform. That should sound familiar to you.
We should be wary of this. The more popular Patreon becomes the more it will feel beholden to please big companies and maybe in the future even shareholders. Right now it's just "objectionable" content, tomorrow it's DMCA claims.
BTW adult content on Patreon makes quite a sizable chunk of their revenue.
Almost a quarter of the Top 100 Creators make adult content and most of them are hit by the new rules.
