smettler48 smettler48 writes: Over a year ago, I posted the only other comment you see regarding this list of videos. I still feel the way I did when I wrote it. It's a great resource. Woodworkers at all levels can learn from these videos. I have two concerns about this list:
1. I'm sure dozens (or maybe scores) of videos have been produced since its initial posting on April 5, 2011. I see no evidence that any have been added to the list since then.
2. You have to know the list exists before you can find it, and then finding it is difficult. I only know about the list because it was a topic on your home page for a short time. When it rotated off your home page, I thought I would be able to find it through your search engine. Not so easy! I had forgotten the title of the list so I searched using the words "list" and "videos" in every permutation I could imagine. I wound up finding it after several frustrated attempts led me to an article that had it listed in the "Related Content" list at the end of that article. At that point, I made it my favorite for your website. I didn't want to chance losing it again. The only way I have been able to find this article with your search engine is to use the word "inventory". "List of videos" certainly won't do it.
I expected there to be quite a list of comments, but my lone comment (unanswered) from over a year ago is still the only one there. I can't believe that no one else has anything to say about this comprehensive list with TONS of your greatest information. I suspect that very few people can find it, or even know of its existence.

My pushy, yet productive recommendations are:
1. Put it out there somewhere! List it in your "videos" drop-down menu. Maybe as the first item! I guarantee you that woodworkers (especially hobbyists) will find it popular. I have spent many hours watching these videos from this list. I would have never even known to search many of the topics represented on this list. The only way I found the topics was through this list.
2. Call it a Comprehensive "List" of Videos. An "Inventory" is unnecessarily vague, and a "List" is crystal clear.(Granted, a small matter, but a clarifying improvement.)
3. Update it! Find a way to get the new videos listed in a somewhat timely manner.

You have a valuable resource here. It just needs some attention.
Note: I'll be sending this to your Editors' email box also. I'm not sure anyone is reading these comments.
