Hi guys, just brewed my first ever batch last night. As I was pouring my wort into the fermenter and getting near the bottom, I noticed very little trub. Actually, almost none at all...after all the liquid was out of the pot there was just a mild trubish residue on the bottom and along the side where I poured.

Is this bad? I was expecting at least a small pile. I didn't stir for too long while cooling, maybe 45 seconds. Perhaps I didn't stir enough?

And some complain if there's too much.

Don't worry about it, there's often not a lot of BREAK MATERIAL (Trub is usually the word we use for the stuff at the bottom of the fermenter not the brew kettle) with extract batches, since most of the hot and cold break (the breaking down of protiens from the gran) is done at the malt house.
