    Been a fair bit of discussion lately around supporting new users and all. I thought putting together some videos on the basic common errors might help. The list doesn't have much to start with, but I'll add more to the list as time goes on, and if people use them. If you have any that you think should go onto the list sooner rather then later let me know. And if these aren't helpful for beginners let me know too, its been a long time since I started out.

    Intro
    Parsing error
    does not contain a definition
    type or namespace not found

    And for future reference the playlist is here.

    Definitely useful for beginners!

    Personally I haven't encountered a lot of parsing errors but I wish this video was there when I encountered the "does not contain a definition" error the first time. In retrospect, it was a pretty silly mistake but I spent waaaaay too much time trying to figure out what I did wrong. I'm yet to encounter the namespace error so that'll definitely come in handy at some stage! xD

    Thank you very much for the good work and, completely random comment, you sound like you're from down under (if so, hi from a fellow down-underer at large)!
