However, one of my videos which I'm submitting is an AMV hell style video, and I'm having some difficulty with the submission process because I can't put all the songs or artists involved in the submission box. I couldn't find any instructions in the rules on how to handle this - should I just put "Various" for the artists and songs?

"Various" should work just fine, that's what I've always done when I find that I quite don't have enough room.

List what it gives you room for, don't worry about the rest. Contest wise, it will most likely end up with Various for the audio listing.

This is a thing that did not happen. I just got signed out automatically, and when I sign back in the upload status says "open," which is what it said before I uploaded the videos.

Not sure if I sure be concerned.

Your video may not have uploaded either, you can see how my inquiry played out on the AB boards here: http://forums.animeboston.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14182&p=221456#p221456

If you are uncertain whether your video completely uploaded, you can email me and I will check and let you know. I do have a workaround in place if need be. The webmaster is still working on resolving the issue, but it is sporadic, and that is making things a little tough to pin it down.

Thanks,
Adam

Question, do I REALLY need to re- render my videos to 23.976fps...
Can I just send 29.976fps?

EDIT:
Never mind I'll just do it.

That was last year too, except instead of "because the big boys came to town" it was more like "because Shin sent videos in" :rofl:
