Well yeah, considering it's a contest that isn't specifically limited to anime, it makes sense that would be the case since there unfortunately isn't a lot of contests that those videos can compete in.

I don't think Ponies flood as much as they stampede though.

You can easily do that by punching them. :ying:

AWA will get hundreds of videos because everyone sends everything to Expo.

That said, since AWA's VAT stuff isn't anime-only, I hope they do get plenty of other FMV entries.

EDIT - especially ponyvids, as I'm running blocks @ AAC that could always use more quality.

Expo was intended to be just that. "Send some videos and we'll show 'em off."
The awards were an after thought and seems to have just stuck. Personally I like the idea of a basic AMV video dump with the possibility of reward rather than an actual competition.

my 2¢



And yes, more fandom videos!
I can't rule out the possibility of there being some lamprey action this year :ying:

Now fill your houses with TROPHIES! :bzz: :bzz2: :amv:



But, but, but I already have a house full of trophies without following these simple rules ... do you mean I could have ruled the world? |:>


You too? I've had a house full of torophes for the past decade :P :P :P :P and I've never followed the rules.

Now the question is, have you won every category there is to win?

If the answer is no, you'll never rule the world.. However I can make you my minister of alienating people :up:
