    Why have you started to use tutorials? You were the one who inspired me to learn things on my own first. Now that you are using tutorials the videos are getting kinda boring, I liked to see you fail and try new ideas until you got it right... Now that you use tutorials/teachers it's no longer fun. I hope you are not selling out just because of deadlines made by the sponsors of the video.
