YES, all of the finalists met the requirements about the winning awards so please stop bringing it up. also i will NOT post the winner's video titles till AFTER the contest. this is so there is no extra advertising for specific videos by others that read this. it has been handled this way by the last 2 coordinator's so i see no reason to change it.
I sent you a pm so a conversation in regards to this would be offline. You did not respond to my pm... that is why I brought it up here so try and relax.
As I noted I ran the MTAC contest this year and this rule is something I am considering as well for next year. I assume the concern is that voting at the contest might be influenced or people posting that their video is a finalist before the contest? Honestly I am more interested in this discussion in regards running contests... but I understand you are probably uber busy with the contest. Thanks for the confirmation and line of reasoning for not posting the videos in regards to advertising.
