Working out the Patreon Kinks

The code provided by the very nice people over at Patreon that was supposed to help my faithful patrons get access to special content turned out to be broken beyond redemption. Sorry about that, folks. We’re moving on from that now.

The new process is much more manual on my part, but I don’t see the day coming soon that it becomes a burden for me to maintain patron’s accounts (though we can always hope…). So here’s what happens now: I get notified when I get a new patron over at I then create an account on this site using the same name and email that is on the Patreon registration. I create a wacky password and send it via email, along with a welcome text and login and password-changing instructions.

To those patrons who already have accounts here, please contact me if you need me to reset your password. I suspect that is most of you; one of the things the old plugin seemed to have a hard time with was sending out the email with new account information.

At this time the new setup is untested (even a manual method was not as simple to set up as one might expect). Current patrons, please let me know if you have any difficulties.

Knives Episode 27 Released

Actually I hit the “publish” button a few days ago, but never got the announcement out. Whups.

In this episode the group, now one larger, returns to the ruin to get the thing that’s under all the bodies. Whatever is is. We learn a little more about the woman who lends her name to the title of this episode, and a little of Bags’ history as well.

Speaking of Bags’ history, I’m giving up on the Patreon plugin for WordPress that is supposed to “simplify” the process of allowing patrons to see content others can’t. It’s just not very good, and I simply don’t have enough patrons to warrant trying to fix it. This weekend I’ll set up a simpler, manual system to allow my bestest friends in the whole world to see the backstories without the current malarkey. I look forward to the day that manually granting access is overwhelming.

Also, I’ll be posting the last, sloppiest, part of Bags’ history, so I can get to the job of posting Kat’s backstory. Once I get that out I’ll start twisting arms again to get people to spread the word so we can cross the next backstory threshold.
