Lol @ random YouTube tutorials. Multiplying the random number = will often generate outside the chunk it's currently working on, in your case it could've been placing ore 15 chunks away! If you didn't realize this, then what GotoLink said - find a tutorial that actually teaches you stuff.
What's wrong with http://www.minecraftforge.net/wiki/Tutorials ? I never had a major problem with those tutorials yet, and you can't copy/paste from a video, and you can generally read faster than you can listen to some person talking.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
llol i seem to do better with watching code be implemented than studying their meanings; it seems i forget it later when it's a reading tutorial but i have actually used that a couple of times like when i was confused about custom drops on vanilla mobs looked there and now pigs and cows and zombies and other things like that drop blood! now people can craft the equalizer in survival.

Life is great when viewed from some angles. - Life sucks when viewed from others. - Right now, everyone is viewing life at the sucky angles.
They have no reason to, but they do it anyway. - Some of these people commit suicide. - Some do genocide. - Some just feel the need to mercilessly rebel.
And in doing so, they become one of the sucky angles that life can be viewed from. - And then others see it, and it spreads to them. - Don't let it spread to you. - Just ignore it.
If enough people ignore it, it will go away, fade, and all will be good again.
