Just ti chime in

I agree with having the WTF did I just watch because it isn't insulting by nature. The title brings to mind an AMV that is just plain weird, a distrubing concept or a bizzare idea (e.g. Katamari Damacy can win something like that if it were video games).

But the Facepalm award sounds like the video was so bad you facepalmed. Meanwhile the I want my life back award makes it sound like the video wasted your time and you wish you never watched it. They are derogatory by nature. The ZOMGWTF award would be better only by virtue of it doesn't imply that the video was bad. Basically there shouldn't be room to misinterpret the ward as being one that is awarded to a bad video. there are only two possible outcomes with such an award

1. It's insulting to the creator as they would be ashamed to pick up the award
2. It goes to a troll video in which case you are rewarding someone submitting a bad video which is counter-intuitive

Continuation of my contest review since 58 now exists:
Spoiler :
Entry 58 - *yawn* Did I just watch a commercial for that show? Editing was slow and uninspiring as a MV, the first 30 seconds of the video felt like a waste...all the clips were on screen entirely too long.

VIDEO NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN!

From the category list, click "View" on any given category to nominate videos in it.
It works just like Category nominations.

This phase will close next Tuesday, and we will proceed ASAP to final voting.

Protip #1: Check back often. People may have added categories you haven't seen yet!
Protip #2: This is your contest. You entered, you vote. If you want to troll the vote, we can't stop you. Honestly, I've never known it to be a problem, but there it is.
Protip #3: Actually, I /can/ stop you. It's in the rules. I've just never had to do it, ever.
Protip #4: I believe in you. I doubt I'll ever have to, ever.

Found a slight glitch. When you nominate a video for a particular category, it winds up being nominated in all categories.

Fixed. It was only a display problem. Actual clicks on "vote" were correctly recorded and have not been reset.

Well, you're under the pressure of a very tight schedule. I'd say it's pretty understandable.

You're very kind. Thank you for finding this and letting me know quickly.

Also, to whoever made the "Non-Anime" category, thank you for expanding it. I know you see it as a pain, but I seriously know people that say certain shows ARE anime even though they were not animated in and/or for Japan...so I do appreciate the clarification.

Jingoro: Video #58 is also missing from the list in the voting.

Not a problem, I just wanted to make sure that it got an equal chance in voting. I hate seeing something that almost slipped through the cracks get the shaft unfairly. It's already going to be rough for that video since I'm sure the majority of people are not going to download it. I like to think that those same people are the ones who don't participate in the voting/category nominations.
