We've now published our update on our Patreon account, current available funds, and insights on previous finances. Read more at

Last follow-up for "today" (it's almost 3am here): We will have a blog post out sometime today (likely evening GMT+2 here) detailing Patreon. Stay tuned!

Further follow-up: New post up on our Patreon to more-or-less notify existing Patrons about the situation, as it seems some may not have gotten the notice / read our blogs.

We will still have a blog post on this as soon as possible. Lots of details to go over here.

I've paused our Patreon campaign to hopefully not charge anyone in the meantime. If Patreon still charges you, request a refund immediately. If possible, I will issue it via the Patreon backend as well.

Patreon has now granted access to the Core Team for the Solus Patreon account. We will be doing an assessment of the current funds in the account, last / past withdrawals, etc. and will have a blog post detailing all of it soon. Intent is to be completely transparent.

@SolusProject Prior to that, it took 1 week for a response (Oct 17th was a reply to my email on Oct 10th, which was my second support ticket I raised).

@SolusProject Example of the sort of delay I'm talking about. For context, my ticket response on Oct. 20th was informing them of my intent to publish the blog post and providing them the opportunity to respond and resolve the issue. They did not respond until after my second follow-up.

The @SolusProject Patreon is now at 376 Patrons and $1,319 USD per month. Significant drop since our blog post (1200 USD) but I want to see both of those numbers hit zero! If you're a Patron, please cancel your donation ASAP and read

At present, Patreon has been taking upwards of 9 days to respond to my support tickets regarding Solus and they only are getting back to them after I practically necro the tickets.

Been working on improving iconography for the Software Center under Solus Plasma Edition (testing). Now using a solus-sc-icons package based on Papirus (without bringing in the entirety of Papirus) for Third Party icons, as well as a multitude of changes to component icons to maximize coverage. 🔥
