We are moving monthly payments to YouTube directly

Hello SubscribeStar Citizens,
We have not had a lot of traction over here with our Monthly offerings -- And with the latest announcement from the YouTube team that we can now offered tiered memberships, I'll be moving the monthly citizenship over there. I think my long term goal is to move everything to YouTube even away from Patreon, but we shall see.

If you still want to support the shows of TMRO on a monthly basis you can now do that here: https://www.youtube.com/tmro/join

Once again THANK YOU and I sincerely hope this isn't too much of a pain for you. If I'm misjudging, please let me know.

-Benjamin
