The good thing about the G+ page is that we have multiple moderators even though its linked to Chad Water's account.  Youtube is really designed for personal use and its horrible for discussion whereas G+ is designed for that.

That might because at some point something went wrong and we had to change permissions then re-post but I did that was a link to my video archive. Just about every video I have ever created however is here:

hrm. well, one nice thing is it'd at least display the video titles
without needing to load them. but sure, i see your point. it should be
noted, however, that youtube supports accounts with multiple accounts
managing them:

that said, i've got a PR in to MCT:

painful (and i never managed to find them).
