OnlyFans has changed its decision to ban pornography after coming under fire from stars who "built their notoriety".
The policy change has instead been "suspended" suggesting the measures have not been taken off the table for the future.
The reversed decision is too little too late for some creators who claim to have been 'thrown to the curb', after making OnlyFans a success.
OnlyFans tweeted on Wednesday afternoon: "Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard. We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.
"OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators."
The company shocked its users on Friday when it announced a shift in focus on more mainstream content to attract more investors.
The London-based business said in last week's statement that the changes would go into effect on October 1 in response to requests of its banking partners and payment providers.
Models and porn stars who use the site reacted to the news saying they felt "betrayed" and "used".
18+ Content creator @Sp00kyWitchMom commented on Wednesday's statement: "Do you honestly think that this is going to bring everyone back? Bc you're wrong. If you are thinking about returning to OF, think hard about that. They took our hard work, built their notoriety, and then threw us to the curb. No ty."
OnlyFans star @hexx_girl says Friday's announcement has lost her 500 subscribers.

To apologise for the loss of earnings and 'causing chaos' she has asked for the site to reduce fees for everyone impacted by the news.
She commented on the post: "I call for a reduce in fees for all of us who have been affected by this. I’ve lost over 150 subscribers overnight but I’m still paying you the full 20% of my earnings?
"And that’s just last night. Overall I’ve lost about 500 subscribers. This is my only source of income and your indecisiveness and poor communication has made models and subscribers scramble and caused chaos. Give us a temporary fee reduction to help us if you are actually sorry."
