  • [ – ] BrianAiya reply Yea, it feels really weird to have this subscription thing but this is not that bad, no ads in vidme, it's not like subscribers will have access to special videos, so that's good. I want ALL my content to be available to everyone too. $2 is a good price because of your currency rate. I would love to subscribe to channels but it's impossible for me now. But one day i surely plan to help my fellow creators.
  • [ – ] GauteAnimation reply Forget about it, if someone is willing to give you some tip or subscribe. It's because they think you deserve it. Nothing to feel guilty about, it's just digital numbers that somehow is given a value. Have tipped one dollar to someone, but I'm barely scraping by month by month x) so I better not do that.
  • [ – ] MysticSword reply Good food for thought. I sort of have mixed feelings on it.
    • KinTailFox parent reply As do I. Which is why I did a video and ended up finding a bunch more confused peeps but it's all good. We'll figure this all out together. :3
  • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas reply I saw the subscribe on mine today I did not bother to turn it on
    • KinTailFox parent reply I did to keep up with the changes and stuff. It's basically learning the program from inside out. I doubt anyone will sub, we are all broke after all 😛
  • [ – ] xNoble_Guardian reply I think 2 or 3 dollars is the best amount for subbing. I'm not gonna be subbing to anyone yet though (because you know i'm broke).
    • KinTailFox parent reply I feel ya there but I budget for tips, so for me it would just be less tips and permanent subs. Thanks for your input 😄
  • [ – ] Rawman reply That was my thought exactly also people would be subscribing to loads of channels if anything. I think if you should tip or sub should be your choice and how you feel. You can only do what you can only do. This is actually really insightful I didn't know that vidme get a cut of tips. But that is fine it happens.
  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply Thank you for making this video, Kin. I wasn't sure how the whole thing worked until you explained it so simply. I think on some videos I might subscribe for the paywall content and on others I will just tip normally. I don't really think I'll use the subscription for my own videos because I do want the infrequent videos I do to be conversation starters and limiting the number of people seeing my videos will be antithetical but who knows. Maybe I'll post my cat and dog videos as a subscription perk. Still very on the fence to do with my own stuff. Sorry for the rambling thinking out loud.
    • KinTailFox parent reply No no, thank you for rambling. I always appreciate it so much. Also thank you for the tip, you're awesome for that <3 (I feel all guilty now) and I agree. I simply have it on for anyone who feels they want to sub up and basically to see how it works :3 Thanks you so much
  • [ – ] Tiddliwinks reply I went ahead and activated it just to see how it works, turns out that (currently) you can set vids that you upload to subscribers only. For me personally I believe that all my vids should be available to everyone. This is just another form of tipping that lets peeps that regularly tip or whatever to not have to go in every month to do it.
    • KinTailFox parent reply I think its just to give the option of doing it if you want to. For someone like me who tips quite often its not needed but for someone else who wants to give a small contribution once a month.
  • [ – ] zaelliariffic reply Yeah ,the system seems interesting, I dunno if I should set mine up for now though, with how horrible my work speed has been and all that jazz lol. I don't want to have someone paying for my videos while I'm not releasing any @.@ Good talk though, explained things well for me! Thanks!
    • [ – ] KinTailFox parent reply I'm glad cause I was confused for a whole while there :3 Your work flow is perfect. Your videos are always mega enjoyable and I always look forward to em.
      • [ – ] zaelliariffic parent reply Teehee, you make this lazy boy feel so excited :P Maybe I will do it then. Though I don't feel like I should be too expensive lol. I mean, for let's plays, those are a dime a dozen, and the big vids only come out once per forever lol (still working on 2nd, so the rate is whacked). Probly aim for about 2 dollars probably too, that seems fair.
        • [ – ] KinTailFox parent reply Yeah. It's gonna be a whole while before I decide what I'm gonna do with it.
          • zaelliariffic parent reply I definitely could not imagine making sub only videos. I want my big videos to be accessible to everyone, and yeah who's gonna pay for let's plays lol. xD
  • Strizer reply Thank you for making this video! It was very informative and helpful to me since i didn't know anything about this subscription feature. It seems like a very interesting idea!
  • AdventuresOfSuze reply Don't feel guilty..feel gratitude..it's beautiful to receive support..and you're offering a service..it is useful information..😊
  • [ – ] blizergy reply how did you get the ✔
    • KinTailFox parent reply You just need to upload a couple of videos and ask vidme for verification. Here is a link: https://vid.me/verified
  • [ – ] RenBlogger reply Thank you. I'm new here and not yet plugged into vidme's SM. I agree with your concerns.
  • [ – ] RetroBit reply I saw that subscription option last night and while I love the idea I might hold off on it myself until there are options to implement benefits, or maybe not. I have no clue what the demand for that would be yet. I'm excited about this new change and curious to see what's coming up. I have a lot of ideas, to many. Haha.
