If gloryquestor or other members if the administration disagree with my rules then I will be more than happy to amend them. So please take your complaints up with them. Until I hear otherwise, the rules will stay as they are.

Also, I have more than heard your distaste for the first round. :sweat: I honestly thought it was a creative idea to see a different kind of trailer amv, and would be an interesting way to simultaneously provide a way to promote our site. Like I already said, the rest of the rounds are clearly and directly amv related.

I would go the other route here and say that if this is an AMV website, then it's only reasonable that most of the videos we'll get will be AMVs proper. I don't understand this need to babysit the contest participants and tell them what to do or not do. This is animemusicvideos.org after all, and I think it's silly expecting that somehow this contest is going to make this whole thing drift away from what the site is about. People come here primarily for AMVs and it's absurd to think that giving that option in a contest will somehow change that. And if it does, maybe that's got more to say about the site than it does about the contest.

Either way, I totally don't see this suddenly turning into a non-AMV contest. Especially when the first round is specifically .org-themed.

Perhaps it might be a good idea to amend the rules to reflect this. If someone uses non-anime, they need to know that they will be at a disadvantage. The rules make it sound like only the final round is AMV related.

I can definitely do that. As soon as I can type with something other than my phone.

Additionally, this contest is modeled after Project Runway, in which the designers are not using ordinary materials a lot of the time. I don't really think there's a problem with allowing people to use sources other than just anime. This site is also very predominately an "internet pop culture" site, if you will, and is also very meme-centric. My Little Pony is not an anime at all yet scrolling down any forum page at least half of the avatars/signatures are pony related. It's part of the culture.

That comparison would only work if Project Runway was hosted on The Cotton Channel: All Cotton, All the Time.

Okay, now I'm a little worried since I'm editing with a drama I watched recently... :uhoh: I'm not sure if it even fits the theme since it's more of a music video about my interpretation of "Home Sweet Home" rather than an advertisement but anyway just to clarify, it's still ANY SOURCE right? Just so I can stop the conversion process now rather than let it go through all 17 episodes to find out I won't be using it. :sweat:

The current rules state that you can use any source except for the last round in which you can only use anime... which i'm guessing is only because of the prize.

Correct. Any source is fine.
