While qwaqa is probably eligible for this category, I doubt he's improved the most of everyone on the org. He went from strong to really strong. Whereas there's people who went from kinda mediocre to pretty damn great.


Is he justified for this category? Sure, but I don't think he's worthy. I think he's a shoe-in for 3 or 4 major awards, and I'm pretty happy about that, but this isn't one where I see him as being a strong competitor.

Still though I do think there are better candidates. Sure, it's cool that the guy started out strong. And got even better. Which is obvious. But what about the people that have been working hard for longer and HAVE showed improvement? Tis exactly what I mean by my journal entry. Other people have been showing improvement left and right. But are either being ignored or just totally pushed out of the way for the "More popular videos/editors"

Kinda like you all are saying:

"Fu** the newbies. Let's vote for the same shit we have seen over and over again, and then, let's vote for the same editor again this year because he/she is great"

It's cool if you like those kinds of videos, but give other peeps a chance. I'm thinking about withdrawing my entries, cuz there is really no point in trying to compete with Nostromo, Chii, and a bunch of others, as it's nothing but a bunch of circle jerking.

I've said my piece. Out.

I see what you mean and...

...I just want to point out that Nostromo's nick has shown for the first time in your post in these VCAs. :book:

Exactly my thoughts. When I think about "Most Improved", I'm thinking about somebody that started at point A and moved to point M. Qwaqa was at point V and moved to point Y. >____>

Thank you. Exactly what I was getting at. There are more deserving editors. And regardless of whether I mentioned him for the first time or not, my point still remains valid. Just saying that the Popular editors are over-rated while the least popular editors (who HAVE shown vast improvement) are Under-rated. "Circle-Jerking"

What you say is true, and is different from those that were saying that he has been on the same level for the whole time showing no improvement, which was the whole thing I was contesting. If you check I personally did not point him out for most improved, I was just contesting those that said he did not make any improvement.

@TC: I pointed out Master10k, if you're wondering, which does fit in your "least popular editors" definition...

I saw. It's good to see someone that actually fits the description is getting mentioned.

Perhaps. But then how does one explain Nostromo getting most improved last year?

The same thing having a "best parody" being code for "comedy 2", "best fun" being code for "dance2", and "most original" being "another video I liked and can't think of a way to say it"... either people don't take the VCAs seriously or people are fucking stupid. It's probably a big helping of both.

I'm not saying what's going to happen, just what ought to happen. Heck, I really loved nostromo, and I was up in arms he made it past the first round there. (Megamom still won it in spirit t_t)
