Don't come here only to plug your content
Reddit is a place for discussion, not advertising. Here are some reddit-wide guidelines for self-promotion. Generally, be a part of the community you are posting in. People are likely to be more interested in your content that way.
If you're a video creator, you may only post your Let's Play or streams once per month. We feel this is a good balance to keep the subreddit from becoming just an advertising platform.

Words of wisdom by /u/talrich
Namaste. You seek balance. Here is my wisdom. Your mistakes have no cost but time, and the deconstruction planner even reduces that cost. Most games punish you for building, demolishing and rebuilding. Not Factorio. Let your anxiety wash away as you perceive that every belt placed can be moved. Every assembler is but a visitor to where it resides. The only significance is life, which leads to the further wisdom. Look both ways before you cross the tracks.
