It is now evident that Vid.Me is not a possible replacement for YouTube. They are not a serious service, and actually appear to be even more converged than either YouTube or Twitter.
We’re writing to let you know that we’ve reviewed your application for verification, but unfortunately we won’t be able to verify you at this time.
We’re still a small team, so we can’t give you detailed feedback on why your application wasn’t approved, but here are some common reasons:
Haven’t met the minimum follower threshold of 50
No cover photo, profile avatar, or videos uploaded
Limited interaction with the Vidme community
Not adhering to the Vidme rules
Also, sometimes we make mistakes. We’re imperfect carbon-based lifeforms.

Here are some of the people they verified at the same time they denied me verification, which is required for access to the settings that allow for creating subscriptions:

I also discovered that their settings don’t permit giving external supporters from Patreon or wherever access to the premium content, so it wasn’t going to be an option anyhow unless and until they got their act together with regards to that feature. So, thanks very much to all of you who followed and helped me determine that Vid.Me is not a viable option for anyone on the Right.
Needless to say, I will not be making further use of their service. It’s not a problem, though, as I already have several alternatives; this simply happened to be the first one that was recommended to me.
Update: I’m not the only one.
They would not verify me because of my content. They are MORE SJW than YouTube.
