Multiple early access comic pgs for different Patreon Tiers

Postby Riana » May 4th, 2018, 5:40 am

I've been recently taking advantage of the Patreon implementation in my corner of SJ and so far my Patrons really love accessing early pages on the site! They said it was much easier to follow the story than digging around through Patreon so I'm excited to do the same with other rewards on a bonus content page!

That being said, I have multiple tiers of early access pages on my Patreon ($1+ Patrons see pages one week in advance, $5+ Patrons see pages two weeks in advanced, and $10+ Patrons see pages 3 weeks in advance), and it would be swell if I can accommodate all those tiers on the main site instead of just one.

I did ask my patrons to see if they're ok with me simplifying the early access tiers to just one early access page for everyone so I can streamline Patreon and the site more. While the option to reduce the early access to one page did have a majority, it was a small majority so it's worth suggesting if there can be multiple early access pages as a feature in the future.

I use a similar system. I have tried to sell products online, but I don't like doing that through Patreon. It gets too weird. I prefer the early access system.

I wanted to bump this because I clarified the title to mean comic pages and I also wanted to mention I got confusion from a patron from one of the higher tiers I've mentioned as to why they couldn't see their early page on the SJ site.

This shouldn't be too difficult to add. I'll need to do it in a way that makes sense interface-wise, but other than that, totally possible. Thanks for the suggestion.

Awesome! Thanks, I really appreciate it! And you're welcome as well!

If I may, I can imagine it could be something similar to the interface for adding extra files, there being a "+add tier" button or something like that. I'm sure what ends up being used will be great though. :)

So I've thought about this some more and I've realized it's actually a little more complicated than I first thought. The reason being the way comic profiles are displayed right now has already been complicated by Patreon status - there's basically two versions of comic profiles for patrons and non-patrons. This would add further complication and require a complete rewrite of how that system works. That being said, it's still on the table, but it's going to take a bit more time to make happen.

I understand! It's a bummer that it's more complicated than first thought, but I really appreciate you looking into it. :) My patrons and I are looking forward to it whenever it gets implemented!
