A few days ago, I entered a Creator ID for the Fortnite Share the Love event and bought an item to get the free wrap in the 7.40 patch update.

Now, I don't want to support a creator anymore. I tried blanking out the creator name, then submit but it was telling me "Connection error. Please try again later" on Switch and PC.

Looking into the Support-a-Creator FAQ, I cannot find any information concerning removing the supported creator. Changing the supported creator works just fine. Do I really have to keep supporting a creator?


According to the information on EpicGames Support-A-Creator page, the support will last 14 days. After the the period is up, you will be able to choose either a previous/new player to support or (if I am interpreting it correctly) be free from supporting players until you choose to support again.

You can change the Creator you support at any time. Your support for a Creator lasts 14 days. After that, you can reselect your Creator or choose a new one at any time.

    Oh. So it does expire by itself. I certainly did miss this information. I will see if this works in about week then, but I believe your interpretation is correct. I will leave this open until I can attest this is right. – Ekinox Feb 15 '19 at 14:49
  • @Ekinox Sounds good! This is the only information I could find regarding support-a-creator expiring. Hopefully somebody else can back this up without having to wait until it does expire – Wondercricket Feb 15 '19 at 14:59

    This is the correct answer. The support feature goes away after some time while not changing the creator. I just was not patient enough! :) answer accepted – Ekinox Feb 26 '19 at 14:17
