Very nicely done :)

 

Your tutorials should become sticky, I am sure it will benefit a lot of (new) users.

I suggest a forum section for video tutorials, where only mods can start new threads. Move all the current tutorials there, with sticky pointer posts in the relevant support areas.

Love your tutorials. Gives me the immediate confidence to "just do it". When you are new you tend to tread carefully because you don't want to screw up.

 

I am a newbie (6.5 yrs with 4.7) once it was set up it ran flawlessly.  I didn't need to do anything except add new disks. As they say, "if it ain't broke don't fix it". Just upgraded to 6 (today) to go to larger drives and I am enjoying all the bells and whistles.

 

I would like to toss out a suggestion. Perhaps you could assemble your videos in a logical sequence addressing:

Why unRaid vs all other choices

Building an unRaid server with some urls to let people see different systems and hardware. 

Loading unRaid software and setting up the server (basic NAS)

Advanced uses

Turl, 

 

Yes I found it and I did miss it the first time around as I was looking for answers to specific questions. Frankly, I haven't been active on the forum for years and only became active again because I needed to upgrade from 2 to 4TB drives. This necessitated upgrading to 6. I wasn't looking forward to it. 6 years ago this forum was not a very friendly place for those of us who were stuck with Windows because of our jobs and needed our hand held every step of the way to setup unRaid. Once it was set up it worked flawlessly. I was functionally illiterate about setting up a Linux based system but I have built several dozen DOS and Windows machines. Frankly, preclearing drives was pretty intimidating the first time around. 

 

What I have found in this forum and with all the improvements on unRaid has virtually blown my mind!!! (pun intended)

 

What I am suggesting is to have a series of tutorials for people who are functionally illiterate with Linux and unRaid.  The purpose is to offload the bulk of the mundane questions asked on the forum and make it easy for new users to come on board, learn the basics, and become productive members of the community. There is a ton of stuff on all the new and exciting bells and whistles that you have added. My choice of unRaid after months of research 7 years ago makes me feel like the the guy who bought 1,000 shares of apple back in the early 80's and forgot that he owned them until today. It's better than hitting the lottery. My comments are not negative but I want to encourage addressing the needs of people who are acquainted with Linux. I am certainly willing to help because I will get to learn everything I need to know. Besides who likes to ask dumb questions?
