patreon + discord rant
livid about how bad the patreon + discord integration is
upon each payment cycle, you get forcibly added to servers that you might have left!
patreon can't generate and send you an invite link, because you could share that with someone else.
patreon has no way to opt out of being added to a discord server. if you ask patreon about this, they suggest getting politely banned from the server you don't want to join https://beesbuzz.biz/blog/3222-In-which-I-finally-stop-using-Patreon
if discord let you disable the permission, it'd break the integration
I understand why both companies don't want to fix this given the resources they have
but... hear me out... what if they *worked together* on a solution to this issue?
anyway now I'm doing a patreon audit to see if there's any servers I don't want to be force-joined to when I set up the integration
people are losing money because of patreon's bad policy
I *might* be able to do a custom pledge without a tier to avoid getting force-joined to servers, because the benefit is tied to specific tiers
means I don't get any benefits though
discord still has too much whimsy for my tastes even after oppressing the gamers
holy FUCK I am being force-joined to servers that *weren't listed* on membership benefits pages okay
it appears the custom pledge hack works
there are several patreons i want to be on but explicitly do not want to be in the discord for ever
