I'm thrilled to have made it in! CAnnot wait to see the results. Action looks like it's gonna be a show-stopper though. :D

Woot!

I noticed that the highest-numbered video that made the finals is 169. Does this mean you got at least 169 entries for only 35 slots?

If that's the case, I guess woot is inadequate...

The cuts were hard in places this year, I just had the entry number and the score and video name to look at while I deleted rows in my excel sheet. Its always hard when I have to cut videos to keep all the categories even. The con's secretary was sitting next to me as I had to cut the last 30 minutes wincing as videos were removed from the bottom of the lists.

and as to the contest stats, I will go grab a generated report from the amv website.
