No I am strictly against monetizing anything that has to do with the game. Even stream donations look like beggar money to me. There was a time that no one was getting paid to make guides or stream. Why pay anyone now?
Agreed, that doesn't solve the problem. Any player that is capable of making a good guide that helps others learn either gets paid by a subscription based site to produce them, or have no physical place to put a guide that would be viewed by enough people to make it worthwhile, Youtube guides don't count.
We can either say, "hey guys just sack up and make guides for people" which answers itself in the fact that there are currently piss all guides on here, or we could say "hey guys wanna make some guides, have the possibility of gaining some donations and gain alot of publicity for your twitch channel?".
Edit/ps: I will make the best guide of all times for warriors in 1 month when I am over with some real life obligations
