VCA Updates & Questions Thread

Postby Radical_Yue » Mon Jan 13, 2014 2:54 pm

Any Updates that the Administration needs to make for the VCAs will be posted here. Please not that the VCAs and their schedule are subject to change at any time if we find a problem with the current setup. We'll do our best to prevent delays but sometimes things just happen. D:
If you have questions, please feel free to post and we'll do our best to answer.


Schedule
Nominations: January 31st - February 15th
Semifinals: February 16th - February 22nd
Finals: February 23rd - March 1st


Common Questions

Question: Can I vote for myself in the VCAs?
Answer: Yes. You can vote for whoever and whatever you want as long as they show up as a possible nomination.

Question: Can I advertise for myself in the VCA threads?
Answer: Please do not advertise for yourself in the threads. While you're allowed to vote for yourself, the threads are for advertising and bringing attention to other videos. There is a shameless self promotion thread where you can advertise for yourself and your videos.

Question: I've posted my favorite videos on the forum. Does this mean I voted for them?
Answer: NO. The forums are simply for discussion of videos. If you wish to vote for them, there will be a separate form on the main website. Please keep an eye out for the form since it will not be available until the voting begins. Check the schedule of events to see when each round of voting begins and ends.

Question: My video/This video is not showing up as a possible nomination! What is wrong?
Answer: If it's your video, please double check the eligibility page to make sure you meet all the requirements.
If it is your video and everything looks good on that page or if it's another video that you simply know about but isn't showing up, please let us know ASAP in the I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT WENT WRONG thread.

Question: I don't want to take part in the VCAs even though I am eligible. How do I opt out?
Answer: Go to the Edit Profile section of the site and uncheck the box that says "All of my videos have been entered into the catalog"

Best Short Video was used a couple years back but only applied to videos 60 seconds and less.

We brought it back and altered it a bit for 120 seconds to include more short videos + Iron Chefs. We saw this as a way to bring back a unique category and add a type of solution for those that have been pulling for a "Best Iron Chef" category.

Awesome, sounds like it'll be a pretty packed category.

Tiny Update


Since I've had a handful of people PM me about and it happens every year, I've set this forum so you can now edit your own posts :3
This should cut back on double posts and the accidental "Oh crap, that video is from the wrong year D:" problems!

Abuse it, and it'll get taken away though.
Although it'll be rather difficult to abuse but if any of you take that as a challenge, I WILL CUT YOU.

Question not involving the VCAs:

Does anyone know if JCAs will take place?

That's up to Nya since he is currently the one in control of the JCAs.
