for you first couple you dont necessarily have to show your face till your more comfortable with it imo. a good vid review is a good review whether we see a smiling face or not.

also, if you don't feel comfortable getting on camera just yet, you can do a vendor review in text format in the vendor review section. I should probably get around to doing this myself.. but i am not sure if my camera will produce good enough quality... I shall try it tonight!

If you read the comments people make, they never make fun, they only give positive feedback, and we respect honest reviews. We have seen members tear apart vendors and flavors. We have seen members make us all want a product. You can't go wrong by contributing.
Maybe make a vid and practice and don't upload until your more confident

dont worry, everyone here is your friend weather you know us or not, like ariberns said we're not gonna make fun of you or burn you or judge you or anything like that, being nervous is perfectly natural and once you get used to just talking to a camera and start making vids you'll get more comfortable and get over your anxiety, just take your time, if you mess up, you can always just re-do it, i think everyone's nervous the first time they get in front of a camera, do what i did at first, either forget the camera's there, or pretend you're just talking to a friend, which like i said, basically you are, we're all friends here, so good luck

Have you seen my very first review? LMAO! Was I nervous and it was hard. After a few you just get in the groove of things. Now I do it like it is nothing. I can even do it in front of a group of people and will be proving that in the next couple weeks.

As I always tell people, it is all down hill after the first few.

Dude, its not a biggy, just get in front and do it. You may want to have your box already cut for the vid is all. If you think you look retarded, then you think all of us in front of the camera look retarded, so, you'll be no different than us lol. Seriously though, no need to be nervous, just go w/ the flow.

Dude dont worry about it, its no big deal. Once you get one done the rest are easy. I went from no uploads on youtube and then when I came here I now have 46 videos i think. Just think of it like you are talking to us and explaining what you think. Simple as that.

I was terrified my first video! .. nobody here is going to make fun of you, everybody here at Hookah Pro is very respectful.

I shake in some of my videos because I have tremors when I am doing intricate tasks. But nobody makes fun, they ask me why I shake sometimes though and I tell them why. I also have anxiety, shy and nervous. I feel very comfortable making videos for the Hookah Pro community

If you have a problem with Members being disrespectful just let a MOD know and we will take care of it. We are currently doing some spring cleaning around here to get rid of the disrespectful members.

Some advice ..

Keep the video short .. when it drags on and on and on .. that will make you more nervous.
