Just a note, for those of you planning to submit snail-mail and haven't used the system before, there is a link to print the mail-in form for each video in the entry status page. That will inform you of the address to ship your entries to as well as being a form you should include with your mail'ed entries for easy tracking.

You can also contact me directly for issues with the entry system and FTP side of things. Please do so via tekko [AT] ngsilver [DOT] com

Tekko held an art contest recently to figure out what the artistic theme of the convention will be this year, and our contest's Theme category usually matches whatever they choose.

We now have the Theme category for this year's Tekko (and contest):

Steampunk!

So, if you have any Steampunk entries from the past 2 years and they haven't been entered into Tekko's (or Sangawa's & KuroKiiro's) contest before, send them our way for consideration! If we get enough entries for it, we'll do a Steampunk category! |:>

*Announcement*
The FTP server will be going down for maintenance this week. I have been needing to do some hardware upgrades (added disk space, new case, ect) and some software upgrades (OS Updates) and will be bringing the FTP server down for this. The maintenance should only last a few days, through the weekend at most. I will make an announcement when the FTP server is back up.

In the meantime the entry system will continue to work and FTP requests will continue to be be received. However no new accounts will be created and current open accounts will not be able to upload during this time.

Any questions or concerns with this, please let me know.

FTP server is back online. And I must say, it looks so much better in it's new case with the new hardware. Took some time getting the OS to cooperate but we're all good.

If anyone has been waiting the weekend to upload their videos, you should be fine to go ahead and do so now. Please let me know if you run into any issues.

Happy Groundhog Day! There may be 6 more weeks of winter, but only 4 weeks left to submit videos!

We're still very much wide open for submissions, so keep sending them our way if you like! :D

Only 2 weeks left, and our convention contest still has a lot of room left.

quick question dude: In case any of your possible categories dont have enough videos and you want to merge videos into the main categories, will you ask the creator or the judges will do that?

Also, why not joining? ;)

I initially slot them into the main categories for judging, but I also see if we do have enough videos and enough play time to make a themed category out of a collection of videos. I base it mainly on what we get in and if the videos actually do fit the theme. In the event that we do a category other than the "main" ones and the "Theme" category (which this year is Steampunk), I would make the creators aware of it beforehand.

So it seems comcrap has struck again and I don't have internet at home right now, at least internet that my server can access. So again, while the entry system is still up and I am receiving all FTP requests I currently cannot authorize any as the FTP server is unable to be reached. I'm having cables re-ran on Tuesday morning and should have this resolved then. If not, I will have an alternative FTP system setup to accept entries and will let all entrants know this new info once setup. Otherwise, if the internet issues is resolved FTP accounts and access will resume on Tuesday.

Sorry for the inconvenience to everyone. Seriously, it's pissing me off as much (if not more) then it is any of you.

The internet issues have been resolved (at least for now) and FTP access is back up and normal. I've sent out all FTP credentials that I have gotten requests for and you should expect to see those in your email inboxes shortly. I will also begin the first part of the process of QC for all submitted entries (final QC and final pass of course will come from GQ.)

One thing to note is that there is a usage quota for each account, and that is 500MB. You should not be using FTP to submit a file that is larger then that and I recommend snail-mail for files larger then 500MB. Also, the FTP server will flat out reject any file type that is not in he approved file format list.

I'm also okay with getting files from a file-sharing site, if they allow the size above 500MB -- just drop me the link by PM or e-mail -- but if you want to mail the file on DVD, you need to PM or e-mail me as soon as possible, so I can provide you with instructions.
