As a heads' up, there's an SQL error if you try to vote for nobody in a category.

this year, every single eligible video in the catalog was automatically put on the "ballot" for voting. If you already know which videos you want to nominate, its actually easier to click the "Edit" button at the top of you browser, then click "find [Ctrl + f]", and then type in the name of the video or editor. It saves a lot of time, and is without a doubt faster than scrolling through all of them.

is this the very definition of circle-jerking? I think so *_* lol

Ileia's got it right, but as you see, it's actually TOUGH to not 'circle-jerk' in such chaos lol. We just have too many videos, I mean it already took FOREVER to do all your entries before now it'll take longer? How many hours in the day do we all have?? As I said earlier we have too many categories (mostly pertaining to the ones where all videos are eligable ie most artistic/ best no effects etc.) I'd rather not spend half my month (and I mean 70%+ of every waking hour here) just to make sure I didn't forget any entries I might like?

In the journals there was a suggestion, the vca's are good for VIEWERS, but why do VIEWERS care about most artistic?? Seriously? Best no effects? maybe, but to cut down on time required I'd still categorize this as the later, nobody would care if it were gone. It was suggested that the VCAs should EXPAND, much like E3, have one event for the developer (editors) and one for the consumers (viewers). Would make coordinating much easier and less drama regarding circle jerking.

(as a side note the colors as to if you d/led the video or not are really hard to see on bright lcds :0 and who doesn't have a bright lcd in this day)

Over the last few days, I must have spent at least 20+ hours reading just about every single post and update in all of the suggestion threads. And I've spent about another 5 hours watching new AMVs and skimming through the AMVs that I've already downloaded. So no, I'm not just searching for my favorite editors or "circles". But either way, I do take back what I said just a little bit. After searching for the videos that i wanted to nominate, I did scroll through all of the list to see if there any AMVs that weren't suggested over the last few days. I actually found a few that I'm really glad that I didn't forget to nominate.

For instance, I can't believe that "Avis" was completely left out of all the suggestion topics. More specifically, I can't believe that I forgot to suggest it. And I had no idea that "Naked Fairytale" and "Everything Burns" were both eligible for "best first videos". And "The World Ends Without you" is actually considered a collaboration. So there is definitely a serious benefit in scrolling through all the list.

so glad I pushed that :P though I got an EXTREMELY indirect answer lol that's 3 amvs I had missed before :)

I just hope my (and many others including Bauzi... he brought it up I think) suggestion doesn't go unnoticed.

While reading through this thread, the Benny Hill theme started playing randomly on my MP3 list. How fitting.

I'm to lazy to work through all the videos in each category (yes, I mean reading them and selecting those I like). I probably will only vote for the more exotic and unkown videos, because I have faith in all the other videos I like that they will make it into the next round easily :)
