    @Berek , The 2min 30sec requirement was a good choice to put in. At first I found it challenging to get what I had to say in such a small window but I found a way and ultimately I feel it promoted higher quality content with out unnecessary excess.

    As someone who watched the videos, the 2-3 min limit was good for me and appropriate attention span. I don't always want to watch a 30 min video to get the granular details.

    It is a shame that you missed Elaina Strongbow's videos. He's one of your most dedicated twitch streamers, and I know a lot of new players mention his youtube videos as the source for getting in the game.

    I understand mistakes happen, but maybe Port can give some kind of additional prize to Elaina considering the situation?
