2005 VCA Nominations Begin

Postby Phade » Wed Jan 19, 2005 12:28 pm

Hey All,

The nomination process for the 2005 AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards has started. This phase it the most important phase of the voting process since once the list is created, no other videos can make it to the final round of voting. Nominating more than one video per category is greatly encouraged. Continue to suggest videos for each category in the shameless promotions forum. The nominations end January 31.

Good luck to all and have fun!! ^_^

I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but isn't having both categories a bit redundant? I read the description and although the difference is "simplicity" has "little to no effects" in the title and the other is "none," wouldn't having just "simplicity" take care of this?

I'm by no means saying we shouldn't include a new category. I actually like it.

Good luck to everyone and have fun!

Hey,

The difference between the two categories is that "Best Simplicity" allows some effects while "Best No-Effects" allows no effects. If the results from the nominations turn out to be the same vids, one of the categories will be dropped before the next round of voting.

Are you asking the difference between the definition "some" and "none"?

Ok then I guess the question is... what exactly constitutes an effect?

If no one knows its there, does it count?
Are strobes effects? Color strobes? Fades? Changing the speed of clips? Doing jerky edits that might LOOK like an effect to some?

Or is it merely defined as those that didn't check the Digital Effects checkbox?

Ya, exactly. It *looks* like it's checking the "digital effects" box and then it's really up to the creator as to what constitutes an "effect." I personally think strobes and things like say moving the opacity bars or changing the color of a frame (say to B&W) isn't an effect, but perhaps others would.

Ehh...

Are the checkboxes supposed to be cleared everytime I go to nominate videos in a category? Looks like I just spent two hours in vain... :|

Actually they are cleared if I choose a different filter when viewing a category.

Hey Janzki,

The filters should keep which videos you've nominated for that particular category. Which category and filter caused the problem?

For example my Instrumental category has no nominations. I then click it, select the first two and click Nominate. Then I go to the Instrumental category again, change the the filter to Dance, select a random video and click Nominate. Now only that last video appears in My Nominations list.
