Improving the Setup Process

On of the major weaknesses of Clan Tools has always been the setup process. This has only increased as more features were added as it means there's even more being presented to a new user all at once. One promising suggestion was to have templates to provide a starting point from which to build on. Work on this is almost complete. However, I don't think a template system alone is the solution. The old adage about giving someone a fish vs. teaching them how to fish comes to mind; the template gives them a fish--which has its uses in the short term--however, what I really want is to teach the user how to fish.

With this goal, I've decided to attempt to make tutorial in video form. The below is the draft for the first video.

I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions you might have, be it with regards to the video or the general setup process itself.
