  • [ – ] Roamancing reply Thanks for this. Was meaning to look further into this.
    • [ – ] Lior parent reply Thank YOU! The comments seem to be telling me that the community and integrity are not as important as paying your bills. That said, though, I apparently don't know what I'm talking about so hey now! You're a rock star! Get the show on, get paid! :)
      • Roamancing parent reply Ultimately it is a personal thing, so ignore the comments and focus on what is right for you and what resonates with you.
  • [ – ] Zentagon reply It doesn't really matter either way. If people want to give you their money, it's their choice. I think it's all about being transparent with your viewers if you do enable about what subbing will give them.
  • [ – ] JustABloke reply Wouldn't you like to hear a "Viewers" point of view as well ? Not everyone makes content.
    • [ – ] Lior parent reply I added it in the description, since my dumb ass forgot to say it on camera. Of course I do!
      • [ – ] JustABloke parent reply It's not up to you whether someone subscribes, your only option is to make this feature possible. Likewise my friend @AxxL_Afriku that's also commenting here said the same, if he gets 1000 followers he might add the feature. As a paying viewer this frustrates the hell out of me and by the time he does add the feature I would most likely have used my limited resources elsewhere. Right now I am waiting on 3 channels to get verified and hopefully they will have common sense, add the feature, and let the viewer decide if their content is worth monetization.
        • [ – ] Lior parent reply You're right, but there's also a matter of "selling out". There are people who would get turned off if they saw a random channel that isn't all that popular with videos that are locked behind a paywall. The viewer obviously is the one who makes the decision to subscribe or not, but in my opinion, there's a bit more to it.
          • [ – ] JustABloke parent reply I don't understand your "selling out" view. If an unpopular ? any channel has subscription only videos, it's because they can. Why should you or I care, we're not here to tell content creators how they should run their channel, as well as telling viewers what channels they should avoid.
            • [ – ] AxxL_Afriku parent reply Would I be forced to add subscribers-only videos? Would be kinda weird to produce videos that will only be seen by you
              • [ – ] JustABloke parent reply No my friend, no one is forcing you to do anything. Your coming from a content creators point of view. Step into the shoes of a viewer, who WANTS to subscribe but never gets the chance. All the people who I see complain about monetization, are content creators, these people are actually pushing viewers like myself away, if you don't want my money why would I continue to follow you ?
  • [ – ] AxxL_Afriku reply i want money
