2011 VCAs - Announcements, Schedule of Events, and Feedback

Postby GloryQuestor » Wed Feb 02, 2011 10:35 pm

It's that time of the year again. Time to reflect on AMVs in 2010 ... and vote for our favorites! I'm returning as your 2011 MOE (that's "master of events" :sweat: ) for the Viewer's Choice Awards this year. :)

Once again, you'll notice that we are opting-in every video that meets the qualifications for the VCAs. Information on how to check your videos and confirm their eligibility (and also where you will eventually be able to vote) can be found here.

Also, for your own videos, yes, there is a Shameless Pl... er, "Self Promotion" topic for you to show off the videos you want others to check out. :wink:

Current Schedule of Events

Schedule of Events:

1. Last day for entries: February 9th
2. Qualifying videos listed: February 10th
3. Video nominations: February 10th - February 20th
4. Semi-final voting: February 21st - February 28th
5. Final voting: March 1st - March 8th
5a. Runoff vote: March 9th - March 11th
6. Winners announced: March 11th

So just out of curiosity, this last line is really bugging me.

Don't forget to make any fixes by February 9th, 2011. Remember, one bad entry can get ALL of your videos disqualified.


If we get one video disqualified, they ALL get disqualified?

It's not the video that qualifies, it's the person. The video doesn't break the rules, the person does.

Aww crap - I didn't know this! I thought my video "Good Morning" was disqualified because I have no idea who made the audio - and no one else online seems to know either. SO I thought "OK - I can't fix it so it's out, but the rest are in."

DAMN. Is there no way to fix it????

I know there isn't. I know.

That's how I understand it.

I have one video with a disqualifying problem - and several others that are good. But my name is not on any list where it should be.

If you think of it as "disqualification is punishment for breaking the rules" it might make more sense. Trash data makes a video ineligible for this contest, yes, but putting the trash data in there in the first place is a no-no, and getting DQd from the VCAs is the stick to make sure you don't do it. It also stays with you year after year. If you don't make the corrections, you never get to participate. :shark:

Yeah, I had one vid where nobody knows who did the audio, and I didn't see the rule, so......

And I even had someone who would have nominated me.

Ahh well, saves me time since if I can't play I won't vote. Who wants a disgruntled editor judging their vids anyway?

Due to pending star requirement issues, this video is receiving a star rating without yet being watched. If you do not agree with this, please make your frustration with how this process is handled for high volume times such as the VCAs known.

A QC I got. Which made me laugh, then go 'Hmmm, for VCA time they probably have a valid point...'

I got that QC as well, but I don't really understand it. Is he/she saying that people are downloading AMVs, not watching, but still giving them a star rating. If that's true, how would you know? And how would you stop it?

What the QC is saying is that the person is downloading every AMV in the semifinals. And they have to stop every 10 vids and give a star rating or the org won't let them download more. So they give videos ratings without having seen them yet, just so they can download the rest of the VCA vids.

If the short video category comes back next year, the voting page should only list the videos that meet the length requirements. Picking out 60 second long videos out of a list of thousands is kinda hard. I could only remember a few off the top of my head, so I only nominated about 4 or 5 videos.

In terms of the video star rating rating, didn't it get lifted last year during the VCAs?

In addition to the star rating issue;

Can I point out that a number of people don't know where to find the voting page?

Maybe that link could be the primary focus of the VCA page instead of tucked inside a little sidebar under 'nominate,' which should probably be changed to say VOTE HERE OMG or some such.

In fact, most of the info on the VCA page is probably better suited to a sidebar format. Personally the only thing I'm interested in inside the main window is the calendar, which is at the bottom.
