    Hitting that 1000 subscriber mark

    Your channel has quite a lot of issues and going over them individually would take forever, so I'll be a bit more general and go through the final steps of my "becoming a YouTuber" list instead: So: You say you want to diversify, and that's fine, but if you want people to care about you and your channel, you'll need to make video for an audience. Otherwise, people subscribing for one thing, eg your boat videos, will only get "spammed" by your "Reseller news" series and quickly unsubscribe again. So, let's say you want to reach people who sell stuff on Ebay and other platforms. Who do you think these people are? How old are they, do they have a lot of time or are they busy? Is selling stuff on Ebay changing so often that you need to upload daily, or is a weekly format enough? These are questions you should ask yourself, and then make decisions on what videos you'll produce based on that. You're talking about diversification, and that in general is a good thing, but diversification needs to happen in relation to your current audience if you're out for success. In other words, if you start with info on selling stuff on Ebay, that audience may also be interested in ebay horror stories about the most difficult customers they've had, or about selling stuff on Amazon, or about general economics, or about efficient warehouse keeping on a small-medium scale. That said, it is possible to have a personality-driven channel, where people don't really care about what you're saying or doing, but just love to see you do whatever. These channels however are structured very differently, usually around shallow entertainment and topics that everybody can get behind yet are still somewhat exciting. Your current videos just don't really offer that. For this, you'll need to have recurring formats on your channel. Looking at what other channels do - and more importantly, don't do yet - is also good to get success within a certain niche. Lastly, here is some further reading: https://creatoracademy.youtube.com/page/course/get-discovered?hl=en

    Hitting that 1000 subscriber mark

    Hi, I am trying to reach that 1000 subscriber mark and can't seem to get there. I don't know if it's my content I am putting out there. I don't want to be a channel that strictly focuses on just one particular subject. I want my channel to be diversified. I want to put up things that just happened whether it be I went to my local park and there was a fair or an event and going on and I want to share it with people. I feel that by being open to different ideas it may help me with my channel growth. In closing, I would like to know what is your take on my idea any comments and suggestions are welcomed. Thank you for your time. Richard J Pasini

  9. Moin. Upload schedules are important. They allow your fans and subscribers to plan their week around your content specifically, rather than you having to hope that your video isn't yet buried under their other subscriptions once they do look into their subscription feed - if they do that, at all. There are a couple different strategies for how often you should upload, but first, let's look at the stats. The stats On average (over the latest 20 videos) out of the top 100 channels (by subscriber count): 29.5% upload at least one video per day 40.2% upload at least one video every other day 49.8% upload at least two videos a week 61.2% upload at least one video a week 83.2% upload at least one video a month All upload at least one video once every 145 days. Uploading daily Uploading one or more videos a day is a thing that you can do if you have fast-to-produce or live content, or a team that can produce lots of content. Doing so has benefits: It maximizes the chance that your video will show up first once a subscriber looks into their feed If you also upload your videos during the same time period (eg the afternoons), people can plan their day around your videos like "after work/school, I'll watch X's new video" It allows you to do time-sensitive topics most of the time. Even if you're pre-producing and publishing from a backlog, throwing in a recent thing always is possible. It lets viewers use your channel like they would use a TV channel, ie as a thing they can have running more or less the entire period of the day where they would have a TV running otherwise. If a lot of your viewers do that, it opens your channel to a degree of freedom where you can have various, rather different shows running. It however has drawbacks: It's difficult to sustain. Especially as a lone all-in-one creator, you'll likely succumb to either burnout, or to a state where you are continuously grind out videos without actually having time to think about if what you're doing is good or how you could improve. This can lead to a general circle of unhappiness where your channel isn't moving forward even though you're trying your hardest. If you upload too many videos a day, especially if it's in relatively different formats or about different topics, you may cause viewers to unsubscribe because they no longer want to get "spammed" by your videos. Uploading every other day, a couple times a week or just once a week Uploading on a weekly schedule has almost the same benefits as uploading daily, but is a lot more sustainable. This is the safest way to go if you are making content. If you are approaching this schedule, it's very useful to tie specific days of the week to different formats. Even if you want to make a video every other day, you typically have a much easier time getting your viewers to watch their videos if they know "every monday/wednesday/friday after work/school I can sit down and watch X's new video" Uploading fortnightly, monthly or rarer If your video needs more time to be produced, uploading fortnightly or monthly may seem like the only option. Compared to the aforementioned schedules, it has the major drawback that viewers can't really plan for your videos. Choosing to upload on certain dates on the month (eg the 13th of the month, or the second sunday) can help here a little bit, but it takes a dedicated fan to keep track of a relatively minor event like an upcoming video upload for as long as a month. If you upload even less frequently than monthly, another thing can happen: People subscribe to channels they like and unsubscribe from channels they no longer care about. But before they unsubscribe, they typically spend a long time just ignoring videos showing up from the channel in the subscription feed. If you upload very rarely, it can happen that by the time you upload your next video, people will already have forgotten who you are and what made your videos so enjoyable to watch. This is (one of the reasons) why high-quality educational aren't that successful on YouTube and one that TV knows how to avoid: TV shows rarely run less frequently than weekly, even well-produced ones. It's true that this is partially because they have a budget on which they can operate, but also because they use seasons. With seasons, you can output high-quality content on a weekly basis, reap all the benefits thereof and end the season with not only new subscribers, but with a bunch of new fans that you have taught that your channel brings high-quality content, a bit like a language teacher teaches children to remember words by repeating them. Unlike with just a single video the viewer happened to stumble upon and subscribed, this taught knowledge sticks much better, and once the new season begins a year later, the a lot of fans will drop whatever they were doing to watch your videos. Uploading in seasons also solves the problems of "when to advertise your channel" (just before the season starts) and "when to find time to re-evaluate and adjust the format" (after the current season ends) and is for example how the channel Epic Rap Battles works. This to some extend also is how professional music channels work, although for those they typically don't have the problem of keeping people watching (favourite songs tend to get listened to again), plus they typically have the seasons in reverse: They upload videos whenever they release a new album and expect to go on tour with it soon and during the time where they don't upload they actually make money with concert tickets. Unlike TV, you can also have a filler format/BTS show for the off-season so you can output some easier-to-make fanservice, however, also unlike TV, you'll likely face difficulties finding a budget large enough to survive the off-season. So, this is something you should try looking into if monthly options would be your alternative.

    Why your monetization application got rejected and what to do about it

    Hello Mr. Leo Wattenberg Can I ask u how about channel that never receive an email, this what happen to the channel??
  11. Moin. There are a few resources on what thumbnails and titles should look like (if you haven't seen them, they're at the end of this post), so instead of going through the theory again, let's look and discuss some concrete examples. At first glance, this thumbnail isn't exactly great: It has some black-blue mess in the background and white text and that's it. However, it clearly is successful, and not only because the channel, austinmcconnell, has a lot of subscribers - the video is roughly 4x as popular as his subscriber count, and 10x as successful as his regular videos. So what's going on? What this title thumbnail combination does is the opposite of clickbait and how newspapers used to operate: It tries to get you to care about the details of a story by presenting the most astounding things about it first (instead of withholding it, like clickbait does). You get the information you need with only reading the headline (title) and subheadline (thumbnail), and you only need to read the article (watch the video) if you care about the details. And this story is interesting! How did non-disabled people participate in the paralympics? How did they get caught? Why did nobody notice before the competition? The only way to get answers to this is to watch the video. This combination does two things: It throws a huge yellow rectangle on your screen. This makes it automatically stand out of any group of other thumbnails and is guaranteed to get your attention. It tries to get you with a contradiction: The title says "this is not yellow", yet, the thumbnail clearly is yellow. So why is the title saying that it isn't? The only way to find out is to watch the video. These combinations seem to do everything wrong. Not only is the title of the show - Hello Internet - abbreviated to H.I., the thumbnail is literally just a number, the same number can be found in the title again, and the rest of the title isn't super interesting. And you can already tell that whatever the video is about is going to take around 2 hours of your time. Yet: They don't need to. This is a podcast that also is hosted on YouTube, it doesn't really want to be found on YouTube, instead, it wants to be found via iTunes and other podcast apps. The content isn't time-sensitive, it's banking on having people stumble upon the show at some point and then binge-listening to the entire thing, and for that purpose, this combination is quite good: You can immediately tell where you'll find your next episode. Further, the thing is ran by two YouTubers that have interesting videos and title/thumbnail combinations in their regular videos. This format basically is fan service for fans of their other channels, it, again, isn't there to be found by outsiders, but by fans of the other channels. So overall: Don't make your thumbnails like that if you want to attract new viewers. But if you want to make a format that you only want your fans to care about, go ahead. The same is true for instagram stories, btw. This thumbnail at first glance looks rather strange, and I don't think it's too compelling to click on if you don't know that this video is about how walls, floors and ceilings work in Super Mario 64. And I don't think it really is possible to make this connection without either looking at the channel itself or by having some degree of knowledge on how game devs would make schematics. If this information was included somewhere, this would probably be quite a good title/thumbnail combination as it immediately makes clear what it's trying to do in a fairly unagitated and sober way. Hello red arrow. Unlike in many other thumbnails where the red arrow points to the only thing that's in the foreground anyways, this red arrow actually sort of serves a purpose as this map has a lot of different colors on it, and you may not know which of the colors is Buckingham otherwise. Together with the title, it's a relatively straight-forward promise of what you'll see when clicking the video. The fact that it also has some comedic value isn't really visible here, the only hint on that is the "unboringed", which unfortunately is covered by the timestamp. Takeaway: Don't put text down there. This combination does a lot of things wrong: There is a lot of text in the thumbnail The text itself is very thin The text is repeated word by word in the title Overall, it looks like exactly the standard corporate help content made by people who don't know how to make proper videos. YouTube's newer combinations are better in comparison: The big icon in the thumbnail is the share icon that the title talks about, there is a person in the thumbnail indicating that there are, in fact, humans working at YouTube and not just algorithms, and the composition is relatively clear. The title/thumbnail combination here looks like it's fairly straight-forward, as far as artsy things go, but there is something special here: This is not a custom thumbnail. This is a frame from around the 1:10 mark in the video. In my personal experience, I found that thumbnails that just are a frame of a video are fairly clickable compared to poorly done custom thumbnails with too much text or just episode numbers on nothing. Anyways, that's it from me. If there are some thumbnail/title combinations you like (or dislike) in particular, feel free to share them below!

    Fair Use: A right to avoid

    Moin. Fair Use is a thing that a lot of people say a lot of stuff about because it, in theory, gives you easy, cheap and uncomplicated access to high-quality content to implement into your video. Instead of trying to find the copyright owner and then trying to get broadcasting rights for it (worldwide? forever? that's gonna cost extra), you just download the thing and claim your use to be fair. The problem is, fair use is fuzzy, only exists in that form in the USA, and informing yourself about what it is and isn't is fairly difficult as everyone on the internet has an opinion on it without having proper qualification. Neither do I for that matter, I'm not a lawyer, but I spent the past half decade dealing with annoying copyright issues. But one thing at a time. 1. Fair Use is fuzzy. The often-quoted four factors of fair use are guidelines for judges and juries, not for creators. There are no hard guidelines that you can follow, and should your case go to court, the verdict can differ greatly from judge to judge and on whether a jury is involved. Case in point: Ray William Johnson v. Jukin Media. Ray William Johnson's equals-three show (=3) was a show in which he would collect a bunch of viral videos from the web and comment on them, parody some of it and generally try to do stuff he thought was entertaining. Jukin Media, which buys exclusive rights of viral videos, didn't like that and sued him in 2014. In 2015 the verdict was in, and the judge ruled that 18/19 videos were fair use. However, the case went on and in the next instance, in 2016, a jury ruled that 40/40 videos were not fair use. It ultimately didn't matter for the case as RWJ and Jukin settled the case before the verdict was spoken, but it does show how quickly things can turn. Even if you're certain that your use is fair and a judge agrees, the next judge (and especially jury) may not agree. 2. Fair use only exists in the US in that form. In other countries, the law simply may be different. For example, in the UK, there is a "fair dealing" law, which doesn't apply to everyone equally but rather has different requirements for private use, use as criticism, use as parody, and so on. As another example, in Germany, the "Freie Benutzung" law asks whether the original "verblasst" (~pales) in the new work. In other words, a video clearly being fair use may not help you if you're getting sued in not-the-USA. This is especially likely to happen if either you or the copyright holder lives outside the US. 3. Informing yourself about fair use is difficult. Not only does the law change every so often, is fuzzy and different from country to country, it also is fairly easy to look for information on the internet and find information that seems to validate an existing belief of yours. If you believe that putting a disclaimer up in your video is going to help with anything, you'll find plenty of places telling you it is, but that won't help you in event of a strike or lawsuit. A slightly more reliable place are the court dockets which show the judge's arguments in a fairly straight-forward language (though you need to be careful as they tend to throw in normal-looking words that mean very specific things in law-speech and not their use in common language), but, as we have seen, the judge's decision seldom is final, and the original documents tend to be rather difficult to find. A better way is to get someone who knows the stuff (ie a copyright lawyer) to look over your video, as well as the footage you're trying to use fairly, and let them make a call on whether that's a stupid idea. Often, a first and rough answer will be delivered free of charge. With that in mind, here a bit of personal preference: What would I do if I wanted to incorporate some fair use footage into my video? Don't. It'll save a lot of headaches by making videos 100% on your own. If it's necessary, try getting permission from the copyright holder. Often, the copyright holder is just happy that someone is paying attention to their content and will give permission for rather small uses. This is especially true for video games; a lot of game publishers have a thing somewhere on their website saying "you can use it in videos". If the copyright holder won't give me a permission, or wants me to pay sums you can't afford, I'll ask myself as well as a lawyer how likely it is that the video is under fair use. If both me and my lawyer find the video to be fair use, I'd think about whether I care enough about the video to potentially fight through several instances of courts until I'd finally reach a conclusion, with these things sometimes taking up to a decade to resolve fully. If the video is more important to me than the potential time I'd spent on 4, I'd upload it. I am aware that the above is a result of a chilling effect: Don't exercise your rights, it's annoying. I am aware that in an ideal world, you'd skip point 1, 2 and 4 and just get someone competent to defend you and fight to the bitter end, accepting no settlement. But the time you'd have to spend on permission-getting, lawyer-asking and court-fighting could be much better spent on just being creative and making a different video that is yours, 100% yours and only yours.

    Intros are unnecessary, or: Why your cool intro isn't a good one

    @Unlimited Internet I'd advise strongly against it. In the worst case scenario, the owner of the anime may strike every video using the intro (so: every video) and/or drag you into a lengthy court case over it that puts your entire channel on the line. If you use the anime music in just one video, worst case is that you get one strike, and if you lose the court case, you'll at most have to delete one video. Not all of them. I'd only try to use something under fair use if it's a) absolutely necessary (an intro never is, as covered above), b) clearly fair use (which your intro usage isn't necessarily) and c) you're willing to defend your right in court.

    Chennal monetization

    Respected sir my chennal is about news analysis & my account from 2009 my I haven't received any mail from youtube for additional review please give me suggestion when my chennal will monetize my chennal link https://www.youtube.com/user/zuhairquain Love you & YouTube
  18. Hello Leo Wattenberg, Nice to read your post and it is quite informative post. But there are some questions in my mind that are related from this post. I appreciate if get reply from you and from others who has any doubt or question about my concern AND If agree with me so, please share this. According to this post in DUPLICATE section :- 1. PUBLIC DOMAIN FOOTAGE & 3. Videos other people made (reupload) If we upload videos as it is, it means that we copy the video content or you can say it is duplicate of original video but if we edit some videos and use those videos for entertainment with some nice music or animations so, is it against YOUTUBE policies. Even if we didn't get any copyright notice or any claim / strike by the content owner. 2. ROYALTY - FREE MUSIC I think their is creative common videos already available on YouTube. Creative commons videos are made by anyone and these videos can be use by anyone without any issue. If I am right so, ROYAL FREE MUSIC are also same thing. People compose their own music, allow other people to use his or her music in their videos with some conditions. If Music composer and the person who use that music according to composer condition and there is no issue in between both so, why there is problem with YOUTUBE. 3. COMPILATION Compilation means collection of some video clips and arrange them for viewers. I like to explain this with an example, many matches and tournaments are showing on TV channels. We all are big fan of SPORTS. Everybody has their own favourite sports personality. Many times we forget or miss our favourite sport match or tournaments. If missed it and I found Highlights or compilation of that match on any video channel so, what would I like to watch highlights or complete match. According to me I like to watch the highlights or compilations of best moments, best shots, emotional moments and like to watch compilation of my favourite sports star moment / shots again and again. You can see that every match has match highlights at end of match. 4. READING OUT OF STORIES POSTED ON OTHER WEBSITES. I think this point need some discussion because if I want to know something and that content is available in some other language which I don't know and I want somebody to tell me that in my language so, is this against YOUTUBE policies. Because one person can't tell that story in every language. I have these few doubts about this post Is YouTube taking Duplicate content, Copied video, Entertainment, information, knowledge Old stories in different languages at one place? OR Is YouTube trying to just reduce the count of creator and leave all duplicate or copied content as it is with monetization if it uploaded earlier in 2017 (monetized) and after 2017 rest of all are not eligible for monetization. I checked this since last 2 months that most of technical channels got monetized. Can you please tell me that what mostly technical channels do. Pick trending topic like Launching New I phone and everybody telling that I phone story according to their own whereas all update already updated on I phone website. In short Technical channels pick a trending story and tell in their videos in their language (same topic). And what YouTube do..... Activate mostly channels Great........... I think YouTube should see the interest of the viewers. Everybody has his own interest. If channel get genuine views so, YouTube should think about that channel. & YouTube better know which channel has genuine views. EVERYBODY SPENT THEIR TIME FROM LONG TIME & GIVE EFFORTS FOR MAKING CONTENT.... YouTube should inform the creator if content is not appropriate according their terms and conditions so, they can stop their efforts and save time to do something else. Or YouTube don’t care about other people’s efforts and time.

    On over-saturation

    Moin. There is this notion, especially among gaming channels, that YouTube is over-saturated and that maybe there was a chance half a decade ago, but nowadays you'll just stay small forever. I don't agree with this notion, and here's why: While it's true that nowadays there are more creators making videos than ever, there are also more viewers than ever. In the past year alone, YouTube grew from 1.5B logged-in users to 1.9B users, that's some 400 000 000 new users, enough to get over 60 channels more successful than Pewdiepie currently is if each of them just could subscribe to 10 channels in total. The earlier you start your channel, the more new users will be able to find you. People won't find you if you don't have a channel or videos. More creators means more videos, yes, but more creators doesn't necessarily mean more good videos. And without good videos, those new creators will never become anywhere near successful, and thus won't really matter as far as competition is concerned, if you produce good videos, that is. Similarly, even in an area that is highly saturated, there's no reason why a viewer wouldn't watch your videos if they're better than what the lot of established YouTubers have been doing. This is true for genres as a whole, even into specific niches: If you want to become the expert on a topic, eg a certain game, but already else is widely regarded as expert on that game, you still can find good success within the niche by making videos on topics the other channel has not yet covered, or covered a long time ago, or covered in a way that allows you to add info that the other channel left out. If you're doing funny gaming montages, your video will be different from anyone else in this space, just because your personality is different. But, again: this requires you to make good videos that are actually funny, else you'll be in the bunch of creators that don't have good videos and don't ever become successful. On the other hand, there is such a thing as over-saturation on a topic. If you want to make a tutorial on how to tie shoe laces, but neither do it better, nor with a different approach, there is little hope that you'll make it past the dozens, perhaps hundreds of good videos that have been made regarding this subject. That said, being alone or with relatively little competition in a niche has its perks, too: It generally makes your videos unique in a way that viewers didn't expect, and thus watch, engage with and share your videos way more often than common, done-to-death formats or topic. A good example of this is TierZoo, which takes the concept of Super Smash Bros.' "Tier Lists", the concept of treating the real world like a video game, and the concept of basically "top 10 animals" videos and merges them together, resulting in content that, for the moment, truely is unique on YouTube. And it shows, the channel grew within 2 years from <1k to >800k subs. So, in short: Finding a niche is very helpful, but not necessary if you know how to make really good content Oversaturation within a genre isn't really a thing as you always can do something differently Within niches, you'll have to work around (or better: with!) other YouTubers and avoid making a video on a topic another YouTuber already has made Oversaturation within a topic is a thing; if your video already has been made and there's nothing you can do to make it better or to make it unique, your video is unlikely to do well ever. Although I wouldn't necessarily call this oversaturation, but rather "accidental duplication". It only is going to get harder if you wait as others may take up a niche, so you better get started as soon as possible. Some tips for the latter can be found here.

    Becoming a YouTuber in 7 Steps

    I find defining your audience to be something a lot of people don't do nearly enough. It's very important to understand who you're making content for and knowing what you're target audience is. Without this, you can't be nearly as efficient with marketing your content to potential viewers as you could be had you narrowed down your perspective in audience.

    Report suspicious ContentID claims

    Moin. There now exists a form where you can escalate ContentID trouble: https://www.creatorshub.net/contentid/report-claim/ Quick FAQ Where do I find the information? On the claims page, you can find information on what content got claimed in your video. When should I use this form? If public domain content is claimed Note: sound recordings of public domain compositions usually are not in the public domain themselves. If the claimed content is not in the video at all If the claimed content doesn't belong to the claimant and you have proof If the claimed content is ineligible for ContentID to begin with. What does this form not do? It won't resolve disputes around fair use It won't resolve licensing issues (ie you got permission, but the licensor forgot to tell that ContentID) It won't file a dispute. YouTube may or may not agree with me that the claim is invalid, but if they don't, the claim on your video will stay indefinitely. Why use this form? Why not just dispute the claim? Disputing a claim will route it to the claimant that then either agree or disagree with your dispute. If they agree that the claim should get released, your video, and only your video will be released. In contrast, if you report the claim, it will get routed to YouTube itself, which then decides whether or not the asset will get deactivated (releasing the claims from all videos) and potentially penalize the claimant (eg prevent them from making new claims until a condition is met, or throwing them out altogether).

    Announcing: Clubs

    We are happy to introduce the next major feature that will be available for CreatorsHub members - Clubs. Clubs are a brand new way of supporting sub-communities. Many people have requested social group functionality and Clubs are our implementation of this concept. There's a lot to digest there! Let's go over the basic functionality. Club Types Four types of club are available: Public clubs Clubs that anyone can see and participate in without joining. Open club Clubs that anyone can see and join. Closed club Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas. Private club Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator Club Users Each club has three levels of user: Leader A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader. Moderators Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club. Users Anyone else that joins the club. For closed clubs, there's an approval process. Users can request to join and the request must be approved by a leader. Leaders get a notification when a user requests to join; the user gets a notification when their request is approved or denied. Club Content Club Leaders can add a variety of content areas to their club - forums, calendars and so on. Each content area a leader adds can have a custom title, and will appear in the club navigation. This means, for example, that you can have multiple forums within a club, and give each a different name. Club Locations Clubs have built-in support for Google Maps, allowing you to specify a physical location for your club. The Club Owner specifies the location when setting up the club, and clubs are then shown on map on the directory page: And within a club, the location is shown too:

  27. @Leo Wattemberg I would appreciate your views on the following: I have a monetized channel in Spanish, passed June review. I have tried to reach an English speaking audience using subtitles since about 6 months or more, but my statistics show I have not been successful, in fact I suspect those viewers from English speaking countries are Spanish speaking nationals living elsewhere. With that in mind I'm very interested in dubbing the script (putting a voice over the muted video) to create an English spoken video to target an English audience. To do this properly these dubbed videos should go in a new channel based on the English language. This new channel would be intended to get monetization when appropriate My doubt is, and I'd love to read your views and past experience on this: would these videos be considered duplicate uploads (video is the same, but with different audio)? Would this channel be eligible for monetization? And if it was determined ineligible due to duplication, would that demonetize my current (Spanish version) channel? I must say, that if there is no other way around, I can always shoot a new video speaking in English. Some videos can be redone. The problem is with other videos, where there is no way they can be reshot, and the only option is dubbing. Thanks.
  28. Most likely not. Don't stop creating or posting. YouTube specifically state if you're flagged for additional review, to keep uploading as they need MORE information to base their final decision on. @Leo Wattenberg Leo, the YouTube Helps page talks about Misleading Metadata rather than Misleading Thumbnails. Are you planning on updating the post to cover metadata as a whole? Thank you so much for such and excellent resource by the way!
