Hmm.. Interesting. Some food for thought. But, does that mean that mean two types of content you can offer on a channel? Like, "free" content that any one can watch, and then "paid-for" content that only Subscribers can watch? Or does it mean if enabled that all your videos are now behind a paywall and only Subscribers who pay a monthly fee can watch?
Not sure how I feel about it really, as, sometimes life stuff and other priorities can crop up to prevent me from making and uploaded new videos as often as I would like, then anyone Subscribed would complain or un-subscribe if you didn't give them frequent / regular / quality content they are expecting. I think one would probably need to try to do it like a full-time job in that case. Kinda of feels like a new level of pressure, stress and expectations would be added on the Creator, and for now I am making content and sharing it for the enjoyment of it and that's the way I prefer it. Even in the several years I ran a channel on YouTube I barely earned any money from it (maybe enough to buy a couple of cups of coffee in a month if I was lucky).
However, the Tips idea is still viable, I feel no pressure, no stress involved that way (even though so far I haven't yet earned any Tips, but then again, I'm still quite new on VidMe and my channel still small there as amount of Subscribers goes). If someone wants to give me a little something (and if they could spare it) because they liked my content, that's great and of course much appreciated, but there's no obligation on either side (for the Viewers or for me) in that regards.
I think for the Subscription service to be viable for any Creators on VidMe, they would probably have to have a lot of Followers already established, then hopefully have enough of them to become willing to pay to become Subscribers. Then the Creator themselves would probably need to do it like a full-time job in order to be able to make and create on a enough regular / frequent / quality exclusive Subscriber-only content. I don't think many Creators would have enough Followers to become Subscribers to make it viable (unless they were already say big on YouTube perhaps then they come to VidMe, bringing a lot of their Followers with them to then some would become Subscribers), or to be able to commit and dedicate enough time and effort required (basically doing it like a full time job).
Of course I could be completely wrong and just not quite understanding the whole thing yet.
I'd have to more look into what it all really means and how it's to work though.
