And I agree about smaller numbers….it fosters a closer relationship and makes the content more valuable 🙂

I think it’s an interesting point, and I tried not to put my personal opinion across in the question. It appears that there is an evolutionary process at play; people responding to YouTube advertising by using browser plugins that disable ads mean that, more than ever, content producers have to find an alternative revenue stream. I’m a big fan of paying for what you want and agree that it’s nicer to have 800 people who care than 350,000 who might. The issue is, at this transitionary stage, that enough content is still available for free to make paying for a little bit extra a step-up worth considerable questioning.
