I think the real question on everyone's mind is....why did that girl in Madara's video stomp on her own dreams? She was so happy and then she just CRUSHED them with her own foot. :cry:

The dancing was obviously there to mask the pain of destroying your own dreams.

I don't think anyone really minds that Fall_Child made it in; most people probably find his video charming and deserved a high ranking. Personally I think he gets bonus points for the nostalgia. :up: I think the problem here is the handling of the rule change itself. It was not announced anywhere that the rule was taken out, and while it could be said, "You should have just looked yourself", it doesn't even say it in the addendum portion. I remember reading the rule, and Dj_Ultimate's response to it, so I believed that it remained, (and a lot of other people must have as well).

Fall_Child said it himself that he looked again and didn't see it, so this isn't on him. Yet, it isn't on the other contestants who are confused, either. While the rules state that they can be changed at any time for any reason, the reason why it was changed was never stated until now, making it seem like it was potentially altered for the advantage of one or two contestants, (which could snowball into other ideas). I'm not saying it was, I'm saying that the concern isn't necessarily unfounded.

In other words, if anything else changes, you may want to make it more apparent to save from the confusion. :beer:

Since it's a lot to retype, I'll just copy/paste from the chat :P (With cuts made for non-relevant stuff)

I'll just put it under a spoiler because it's really not incredibly important to read.

Spoiler :
[8:52:21 AM] Yue: Honestly, that change was done a while ago. Like I said, well before Todd made his video. Kisanzi advised against it but I really wanted to see some GMVs, so that's all on me.

[8:54:15 AM] Yue: I didn't consider it a big enough thing to go back and make a huge deal about, but I'll make a note of it for now on.
[8:54:32 AM] Yue: I often go through and correct things in the rules that I see were wrong. Grammar, dates, wording, etc...
[8:54:47 AM] Yue: It was such a tiny thing that only 1 person made a stink about so I didn't consider it to be that major.
[8:54:53 AM] Yue: But I've been proven wrong.
[8:55:02 AM] Yue: And that, I take responsibility for.

[8:55:39 AM] Ileia: Well yue
[8:56:03 AM] Ileia: You also posted four days after ultimas post
[8:56:22 AM] Ileia: And said there were some rule changes
[8:56:32 AM] Ileia: And for people to pay attention
[8:56:40 AM] Yue: That was more than likely when I did it because it was a fucking while ago.
[8:57:11 AM] Yue: Like I said, I didn't think twice about it because 1) it was so long ago and 2) I didn't think it was a big deal.


But tl;dr, yes, I change the rule about 4 days after posting it but I did so while correcting other things regarding signups. I personally didn't think it was a major deal but I was wrong. That was my bad and I take full responsibility. Next time I'll be sure to outline each and every change. :D

And if anyone has any problems regarding videos and such where they believe DQs or rule breaking has been commited, all I ask is that you come to me after the video packs have released and not after the results go up. It makes it a bit more difficult to address once everything has been said and done. :sweat:


That all being said, I greatly look forward to all the GMVs you guys make. :up:

Getting creative and making something that works in such a short period of time can really give you an edge on the competition.
