Newsletter #15 for July 18th, 2022

Howdy folks!

It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for a second week in a row of newsletter duty!  Joe’s been quite busy working on things post PlayOnCon, so I’m here to help get the news out again.

Without further ado, here’s the updates!

Draw4 Charity

Changes to the Patreon Discord

Joe has proposed a big change to come to the Patreon Discord server. We would be reducing the Discord down to essential channels, ones that specifically pertain to Joe interacting with his community.

Don’t panic!

No changes are happening just yet. The first draft of the full proposal is being prepared this week based on feedback we’re already receiving. That draft is on track to be published in next week’s newsletter.

They will be discussed as a community during our next quarterly business meeting, which will occur in September, exact date to be determined.

If you’d like to participate in the discussion before then, feedback is welcome in Joe Hills Meta > #feedback-structure
