Subscriptions mean nothing, esp. if you're in a crowd of people who subscribe to each other because the want subscriptions. It's worthless-point-scoring. You'll disagree with me, but at some stage in your life you'll acknowledge that subscribers weren't really important.


To me, subscribers are important because it shows me who supports my work and who wants me to keep posting more good stuff.  I don't beg for subs, and I don't roll with the "sub 4 sub" program so this makes them a little more cherish-able.

Ah but this is you people know you and your stuff that is why they subscribe. That's the opposite of "Please subscribe!!!"


We all have to start from somewhere Lemonie.  

Yep, and the ball machine looks promising.


Relative importance of anything is defined by the individual. There is no objective right or wrong for how important subscribers are - making it somewhat arrogant to say "at some stage in your life you'll acknowledge that subscribers weren't really important". Are subscribers important to me? No, but that doesn't mean they aren't or shouldn't be to this poster, who isn't "in the wrong" about anything. 

It is point-scoring, and nothing more in this context "Dont forget to subscribe!"
If people subscribe it should be because they want to, I've never asked anyone to subscribe to me and I don't care that anyone has, in a social-internet-network point-scoring matters, it's a quantification of an internet-presence.
How much do you value something? - the amount of publicity and marketing it gets or it's intrinsic -value?


Yes. I agree that it is point scoring. I don't particularly care about it either.

But my point is not how to determine value, it is that to impose one's own definition of value or relative value of specific things on another is presumptuous.

Value-systems are individual/personal, to post a comment of "Dont forget to subscribe!" is either a joke or it's what the joke would be pointed to, which is "I want points, please give me some"
You saw DJ's post on what he considered to be worthless-gongs?


All I'm saying is it's very insulting to tell him "you'll eventually admit this thing that matters to you didn't matter at all".

I wrote a nice response, but the system deleted it. As it's 11:15, I summarise:
"people need telling" "kids these days still beat each other in a physical or cyber-way", attaching worth to points is not a good way to live unless you want to be a DALEK. Point and targets are so easy, qualify by points or targets-met you say "I achieved" - yes, but what did you achieve?

The user needs liberating from the perception that they don't exist without subscribers.
