subs_md5

fields

Note
These fields are the same as above, they are just the md5checksum of them for the exception of id, that is the connector between the two tables. This is done so that if one person edits the subscription at the same time as someone else they wont just overwrite each other. It will make the second person to submit their edits look at what the other person has done first.
