I became a contributor because I love this plugin
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.0

Yes, I'm now a contributing author to this plugin, but the following are my thoughts before I started contributing.

This plugin solves my biggest annoyance with YouTube Live / Google+ Hangouts on Air events! I had long wanted to switch you Google's live-streaming platform, but I hated the idea of manually updating the embed code with each new event. Then I found this plugin and loved it!

But I also saw that the plugin could be more. That's when I contacted the author and he made me a contributor. I'm happy to have brought features like active > pending priority, proper event sorting, and now support for multiple channels.

Why am I rating my "own" plugin only four stars? Because I think the thing that would make this plugin even better would be live-refreshing between events. Yes, that's coming and I'll probably be the one to implement it, but I'm honest enough to dock a star for its present lack.

(This is about what I would have said even if I wasn't a contributor.)
