That one up front looks a little close for comfort. I would probably reverse it so the nylon side went on first to give yourself a little extra time if it does wriggle loose. If the nylon part comes off the end the rest of the nut can come loose very quickly. If the nut is reversed and it comes just a little loose you can feel that or see it before it becomes a problem. You should do a visual inspection before each skate.

It doesn't take much to make them roll well or not. You should tighten the nuts to where they just start to impede the roll, then back them off 1/4 to 1/2 a turn.

You can post to youtube then give us a link.
You don't improve by training until it hurts; you improve by training after it hurts.

I love the phrase "I quit". It beats more of my opponents than I do.
