Patreon Rewards FAQ

FAQ-IMAGE

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Patreon is a form of crowdfunding, like Kickstarter, that has changed my life. Support from readers like you on Patreon has allowed me to quit my day job and work on these comics full-time. That’s something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do.

With Kickstarter, you try to raise a huge amount of money in a short period of time to finish a specific project (like printing a book), but Patreon is different. Patreon still involves a bunch of regular folks getting together to make something happen—that’s why it’s “crowdfunding”—but instead of each person pledging $25 one time, Patrons agree to pledge, like, $5/month to support a creator’s ongoing work. Patreon accepts international currency, and Patrons can pledge any amount they like and they can stop and start anytime they like.

This has the huge benefit of giving me a predictable form of income every month. Thanks to the support of my readers I can honestly say I make my living as a writer now.

And there are also lots of benefits for being one of my Patrons.

Those who pledge $3 or more get

• access to my Patreon Activity stream (where I’ll post the comic pages up first!)

• work-in-progress pages for every update  (script pages, thumbnail pages, penciled pages)

• voting rights for pin-up wallpapers made from comic page art

• access to Patreon-only short stories

• access to the exclusive True Fan Lounge on The Young Protectors Community site

• and my thanks for supporting my work!

Those who pledge $5 or more get

• all of the above plus

you get to read one page of The Young Protectors: Double-Cross ahead of everyone else here on my webcomic site

access to the uncensored pages of Legendary here on my webcomic site

• access to over 55 (SFW and NSFW) high-quality pin-ups on my Patreon page (see the Galleries below!)

• I’ll add a blue YP (Young Protectors) logo to your Disqus avatar like this:

• and if the the current month has a Special Digital Reward (usually NSFW), you get to download it

Those who pledge $10 or more get

• all of the above plus

• immediate access to a download library on itch.io that includes every NSFW pin-up I’ve ever sent out on Patreon (a whopping 30 of them!)

• you’ll also get a high-res file with double the resolution of any pin-up art (including Panel Pin-ups) I post in the current month.

Those who pledge $25 or more get

• all of the above plus

• immediate access to a download library on itch.io that includes high-res versions of every pin-up I’ve ever sent out on Patreon

• your name will be included on the Leaderboard of Awesome on my Web site (but only if you want it to!)

• I’ll add a special SILVER YP logo to your Disqus Avatar that you can use on my site (and elsewhere) so you can show the world how awesome you are. It looks like this:

Those who pledge $100 or more get

WOW! Ok. First, you totally rock!

• And of course you get all the above rewards plus

• your name will be included on the Leaderboard of Awesome on my Web site (but only if you want it to!) with specialdistinction.

• I’ll add a GOLD YP logo to your Disqus Avatar. Like this:

• And, at your request, once a month you’ll be able to get any one item from my online store for free! (bundle products and shipping not included)

If you are a new Patron, or if you are an existing Patron who is upgrading their pledge (e.g. from $5 to $10), you will be charged immediately and will have immediate access to all the currently posted content for that pledge level.

After that, you will be charged on the first of every month. According to the Patreon FAQ, it can take 72 hours for all pledges to process at that time, so don’t stress if you don’t see the charge right on the 1st. 🙂

According to the Patreon FAQ:

What Does A Patreon Pledge Look Like On My Bank Statement?

All charges will appear on your bank statement as one of the following:

  • Patreon* Membership
  • CKO Patreon* Membership
  • VISIT PATREON.COM/INFO
  • PAYPAL *PATREON IN

The names of creators you are supporting will not be included on the statement.

Patreon isn’t so awesome about indexing previously posted rewards so I created my own indexes right here on this page.
 
In the dropdowns below, you can find links to the short stories I’ve posted and the work-in-progress pages (script pages, thumbnail pages, and penciled pages).
 
All the SFW pin-ups and some of the more popular NSFW pin-ups are available to current $5+ Patrons in their original posts on the Patreon site. I’ve created thumbnail galleries for those pin-ups with their own drop-downs on this page. Just click on the thumbnail image in the gallery and it will take you to the post on Patreon where you can download the wallpaper.
 
The remaining NSFW pin-ups are available to $10+ Patrons at a special download library I created on itch.io.
 

Here is something important to know: I actually post my content up at three totally different websites.

I post content at patreon.com (a Web site owned and controlled by Patreon). I post content up at my Community site which is at https://community.amwcomics.com. And of course, I also post comics up right here on my webcomics site—youngprotectors.com—where they are easiest to read.

All three sites have separate logins. Just because you are logged into one site doesn’t mean you are logged into either of the other two. You can be logged into patreon.com and not be logged into this webcomics site!

How will you know that you are logged into youngprotectors.com?

You’ll see a dark bar at the top of the page with your username like this:

You need to be logged in here at youngprotectors.com using your Patreon credentials to be able to access the Preview Pages on this site.

It’s easy!

Underneath the comic page art, at the top of the right sidebar, I’ve added a big, orange button that will let you log into my site using your Patreon credentials.

Click on that and give Patreon permission to log you in, and you should have access to all the locked pages here on youngprotectors.com.

If you have any problems, try logging out (using the dark bar at the top of the page) and logging back in (using this orange button). That should fix things. If not, then let me know and I’ll figure it out. 🙂

First, be sure to read this article from Patreon about why you might not have access to your rewards. When you first pledge, it can be surprisingly easy to skip the step of ALSO choosing a reward tier. And if you don’t deliberately do that, you won’t be able to see the rewards you pledged for. That is the most common reason for not being able to see one of my rewards, and the Patreon article explains how to fix that.

If you’ve followed the steps in that Patreon article and also followed all the steps to log into youngprotectors.com with your Patreon credentials (shown in the last question), and you’re still not able to see the page, it’s likely a browser cache issue.

One thing that seems to work is force-refreshing the page you are trying to see — hitting [Ctrl]-[F5] in most Windows browsers, or ⌘R on the Mac. If you’re having trouble, please give that a try—it almost always seems to fix the problem.

Sometimes a browser really, really wants to keep hold of its cache. If you’re on a Mac, and a simple refresh doesn’t do it, this URL gives some other easy solutions to clear your browser cache: http://osxdaily.com/2016/01/17/empty-cache-safari-mac-os-x/

If you’re on Windows, and a simple refresh doesn’t do it, this URL gives some other easy solutions to clear your browser cache: https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-clear-cache-in-windows-10

And this link tells you how to force-reload mobile browsers: https://www.sleeplessmedia.com/2016/04/20/how-to-hard-refresh-on-a-mobile-device/

If, for some reason, that doesn’t work, there is an alternative way to view at least the Sneak Preview pages: they are also posted over at our Community site. So you don’t have to wait, this post explains how to get to the Preview Pages on the Community Site.

But if you are still having trouble after the force-refresh,  please let me know. I want you to be able to enjoy these pages on my webcomic site, as they were intended!
