After talking with Proz this weekend, we've decided that we may begin allowing MEP's starting with San Japan 5. The final details of it will be ironed out by the turn of the year.
Talking about inconsistency, it normally happens with ikkicon. I have much less control with ikkicon and changing things takes days, if not weeks in Ikkicon's part. So any changes I have to announce things either in the beginning or mid-day through the contest. Its also somewhat frustrating that I gave them the information about a month after SJ4, and they didn't post the AMV submission form & rules till about a month ago.
In Warlikes case, during SJ's AMV contest I was very consistent with the rules in which she submitted a video because that video was not just the only one that had to inform them about the rules & guidelines. She respectfully withdrew her entries after I asked her if she had any editing help with her video's. So in Ikkicon's contest I decided to clarify a bit more in rule 2 were its okay to have critique from friends & family, just as long as you are the sole editor; and in rule 4 were you have to have bumper credits either before, or after the AMV to the Musical Artist, Song, Anime, & Yourself shown in the AMV, is now only recommended to see if that helps with submission entries.
Changing the rules & guidelines from con to con isn't bad, it actually says we are listening to you all and making the proper adjustments to help you all. If something isn't working, you change it to make it work for the better.
I do agree that my emails may have been blunt, it was not intended to be rude. My apologies to Warlike if they may come off that way. I maybe should have used Italics than using all caps to emphasize something that was very minor.
