I agree with the comments above:

A: please highlight YouTubers we may not know about

B: pick videos that actually teach/explain good practices, not crazy exploits :)

My goodness but didn't the the "Daily" (i.e. about once a week or whenever they can be bothered) posts go south fast when all the key Squad team quit?

Hmmm.  Bugs that interfere with gameplay should be fixed. But sometimes, bugs like this one can have a positive impact on a game. Take the Kraken drives people make to build turbo props. That offers a way of making electric propeller planes in stock KSP. Keep these bugs in the stock game, please, Squad!

That gyroscope drive is just awesome. Bring multiple RTG instead of solar panel and complete ultimate challenge. Eve is 'kinda' easy with this, just add m-ore tanks.

Whinge, moan, complain, humbug.

Come on, this is a great video and not everyone knows about Scott. New players get into KSP all the time. Plus of course KSP has marginal physics issues, it's just a game. In many cases they're not even bugs, just pragmatic compromises such as SOI instead of n-body physics. Let's celebrate the game for what it is and encourage Squad to make it a better example of that thing - a game - rather than complain about things just because we can complain about them.

It was an mod I used before 1.1 who let you set up fuel transfer between multiple tanks at once not like in 1.2 but in an tank list, it let you set speed. 
This option might be gone in 1.2 and the new fuel transfer system. 

Option left is the large tanks and longer arms.

I just ran into this video today and I had another thought.  He was having a problem with the design that the script had to run to completion to ensure it returned to the start state, thus giving trouble with switching it on and off.

I have never played with Kerbal OS but how about having the script monitor something like the lights?  At the top of the loop you run a cycle if the lights are on, otherwise you don't.

what is that link for?

It's a Dwarf Fortress joke. It goes like so:
Dwarf Fortress has no win-state. Any fortress will either fall or go on into eternity (at which point it is no fun). Dwarf fortress is fun, except when it becomes boring (because there's nothing threatening you). Ergo, losing is fun.

Any time I see someone refer to "fun" sarcastically, I think "Fun," which is the losing kind of fun. It's one step below "!!Fun!!," which is the same as "Fun" except it's on fire.

You're not wrong. However, the first line of that page is "Losing is fun!"
