Can someone tell me how the system is checking new users/patrons when it syncs? Is it a match on emails or is there a token or id value that is generated when they use the “Become a Patron” link in the forums.
Meaning what happens when people become patrons directly on the Patreon page without using the link? Do they get sync’d or no?
Currently I have 22 patrons but only 18 in the Pareon group. I also have some members who aren’t in the group who have Patreon ID data in their profiles and some that don’t. Adding them manually only results in them being removed when the sync occurs as well.
Thanks for any help in understanding this process.
