New to the game?
Just browsing the forum before deciding to buy the game?
Been playing for a while, but tempted to uninstall because you feel stuck?

Take a look at our interactive tutorial!
We'll be discussing anything that comes to your and our mind!
Feel free to ask questions in the comments, so we can add them in an episode.

Initial feedback is that is takes a while to start getting to a point where it is informative. I haven't watched it all but you might want to think about cutting out the parts where it isn't helping the player near the beginning. Remember your target audience is people wanting to know how to play the game and not all of them will be patient enough to sit through stuff that isn't doing that.
Saying that I will add to the guides sticky.

I don't cut it out to give the right idea of timescale it takes to get things done.
Different mindset, different work etiquette.
IMHO, players shouldn't see an edited video and get the idea you can get a factory set up and running within minutes.
Most of the time any other talk that is done is informative as well, so there's no loss there either.
On another note, there are timelinks to specific parts in the description for easy navigation.

That said, it's new work so I'm bound to replace the first few vids with more streamlined versions. Episodes 3 and 4 are all good, if I say so myself!

Thanks for the add.
