YouTube Paid Channels
OK, I'm being a bit harsh, I do see the point of it here. It allows creators of content to get something back for the work their putting in. Not that they weren't getting it already with the whole YouTube monetisation thing, but this just gives them more options or some shit I guess.
Right now I don't give a flying fuck really because all the channels that are pay2view are a load of shit anyway. But I hope people with gaming channels are aware of the fact that not ONE FUCKING PERSON with any kind of common sense would pay a fucking penny to watch shit like playthroughs and reviews.
I mean think about it, if someone like IGN went and put a subscription on their channel, people would just fuck off somewhere else for content. If some Let's Player goes and does the same thing, people will just fuck of to another guy who didn't. Even more so with playthroughs because why pay a monthly fee to view them when you could just buy the game yourself and fucking play it.
I know full well my nobody status on YouTube but rest assured that if I ever did somehow get to the point where subscription content would be an option, I would tell YT to go shove it up it's own arse. If people are going to pay money for anything I create, I'd rather they direct it at the Alzheimer's Society than me, I can just get a fucking job!
Speaking of which, don't forget to throw a donation to the Society, that disease ain't going to cure itself!
(Please forgive my shameless begging for charity donations, I won't do it often)
