    As long as we're supposed to be open, your upload speed is part of the reason I still follow you. I'm (nominally) an adult who works almost 50 hours a week. I don't have the time for people who upload even once a week anymore. I like doing stuff with my free time outside of youtube, thank you very much.

    Anyone who is complaining about Grey getting X amount of money per month, chill tf out. Dude works his ass off for this channel and was working his ass off years before he got paid. I truly believe it’s not about the money for him. Even if it was about the money, he could make a mid tier 6 figure salary elsewhere. Dude is brilliant. Patreon is a way for people to say ‘Hey, I support you!’ Which a ton of people are happy to do. It’s no pressure to donate like he said, we who donate just want to do something good

    I feel like many RU-clip video creators are going this way now, moving to crowd fund platform, so they don't have to modify or limit their materials on what they can or can't say to suite RU-clip guidelines.
    And I respect that, I wish many of favorite RU-cliprs could do that now, so they don't have to fear for repercussions at expense of their creative content and opinion.
    Just want a quick tip Grey, can you do a lump sum payment like paypal, monthly contribution makes me feel uneasy, lol.

    I’ve been away for a while (2 yrs) and in that time new content has appeared (oblig. meme done) but I can’t seem to get to the right patreon account in the link. Can anyone help out by reposting or confirming?

    Thanks for acknowledging that students want to support you but can’t. I would love to support my favorite youtuber a but school is a money pit so finding another money pit through RU-clip is financially irresponsible.

    I know you read the comments. I so wish I could make a donation and support this channel but alas, for I live in a country where I am financially severed from the rest of the world. Plus I barely have a job. I thought that at the very least I could write a comment of encouragement and support (I know, you can't deposit encouragement) and appreciation of how much work goes into every video and how much it has added to the personal knowledge and even personality of many viewers. Thank you so much, Grey!

    Please help yourself to ads if the video made was rather expensive we wouldn’t mind the double tap/time slider, was created for many reasons and many comforts unless if you can’t bring yourself to do it you can turn sponsors very informative as well comparing one website builder to others we want you to be able to grow your channel RU-clip takes time so when something comes out those few minutes/seconds really impact people

    Honestly, I'm quite happy with a 'Un creative' Ad. Pick a sponsor. Gain money from them. End o'video ads are just fine as long as they don't affect *your* creativity.

    Oh thank god. I’m a student and I feel bad when I can’t support content creators I like. Will do when I graduate! Don’t worry, I made sure to choose a career where AI won’t be taking over soon. Or at least I think so.

    I personally can't afford it, but I hope people support you by donating monthly instead of per video. It allows you to create the best without having to worry about pumping out any old crap for the checks.

    you know i really enjoyed the lord of the rings videos. you could put in some more of those describing fictional worlds. that must be easier then the real world videos. how about a history of Disney films, or greek mytology threw the years.

  • GenialBunion
    GenialBunion 2 months ago

    I disagree with sponsors interfering with your content. I cannot imagine how personal these videos were to you so maybe I'm wrong here, but you can think of the sponsor at the end being like a filler episode in a show. It's not technically cannon so you and your viewers can ignore it. You need to eat my guy. I'd advise comprising a little to be able to live your life financially comfortably.

    People supporting you on patreon is a good idea, but advertisers are a much safer financial discussion. Nice sweater btw, might pick one up

  • slad roznik

    I think that you are going to continue to make videos, yes? If so, would you be interested in looking into the demise of a country run by a democracy. An historian, Professor Alexander Tyler, studied this over 200 years ago and made an interesting conclusion...

    you know you lost a lot of those donors after flexing your tesla... lol 🤣😉 (p.s. i was about to get one myself until i read a number of those hassle stories having to charge halfway your commute and you're late at work, meeting, etc., long story short im back to looking at how amazing the prius or honda hybrid is)

    Just came across your channel and you seem like a nice enough person, but you have 4 million subscribers. You literally get paid from views. As for the whole "my art is so personal, I can't put an ad on it," please get over yourself. You're making cheaply animated internet clips... they're fun to watch, but you aren't curing cancer with this stuff.

  • Deivedux

    You could've just enabled channel memberships... There are people that don't trust Patreon, plus it makes people leave the RU-clip platform to support you.

  • Martin Simo

    I think your audience is educated enough to understand why there would be ads in your videos. It's ironic how youtubers releasing shitty non relevant content are making a killing, while someone like you, who actually spends hours and hours of slaving on single amazing educational video doesn't want to add ads, because the video is too personal to you..

  • RabblerouserGT
    RabblerouserGT 2 months ago

    I wouldn't mind if you ran ads. I think we as a collective are starting to tune them out anyway. So long as it's not one of those ads that make you vomit your dignity by having YOU YOURSELF speak for them. Unless they were stuff you believed in. Like maybe something like Skillshare or Brilliant (sort of like what Michael Reeves does).
