Thanks! :) There's a minor spelling error though ("Instumental").

Ok, all updated. Just so I'm clear on this, instumental covers any song without words? ie:Yoko Kanno - Tank! and Gundam Wing OST - Battle Theme

Now now, lets not get AD's hopes up too much. I'm quite sure someone will still request an off topic section every other week or so.

If they do that, I'll answer them by promoting Demonseals.

Woot. 2/3 of my videos are instrumental. Of course, I've only made three videos... :?

Excellent. Every romance/drama vid I've made has sentimental value to it. Lots of updating to do. ;p

should we attempt to define categories?
i saw several different definitions of sentimental in the suggestion thread.
"whiny romantics"
"affectedly or extravagantly emotional"
"weakly emotional, mawkishly susceptible or tender."
"characterized by...refined feeling."
"Sentimental just means that it incites an emotion positive or *negative*"


from the VCAs

to which i see little difference from
Best Drama Video wrote:Some videos are out there soley for the purposes of making you laugh, others are out there to give you an extra jolt of adrenline, but there are also videos that will make you cry, or feel things you don't on an every day basis. Drama is an important part of what makes AMVs truely a form of art. This catagory is for videos that have captured a feeling or an emotion and conveyed it extremely well.


my main point is we need to distinguish sentimental, romance, serious, and drama. not to say the current standpoints on these categories are equal. however, sentimental seems to be inclusive of romance and drama (can you have a non-sentimental romance or drama?), and serious seems to be inclusive of drama (perhaps with a few rare exceptions). otherwise every drama automatically gets categorized as serious and sentimental as well.

furthermore, using emotion in the definition of sentimental might be too broad as the purpose of art (in this case, our amvs) is to appeal to emotion. in effect, every video is sentimental (or intended to be sentimental) on some level.

anyone have good definitions for the different categories?
