The Fan Favourite AMV results this year were spread out over a very wide base, because of the sheer number of awesome videos, and the winner was very much down to the wire! Because they won by *a single vote* we had to count and re-count the ballots 3 times over to check!

Thank you to everyone for participating again, and I look forward to seeing everyone's work next year!

Wow, the "Thanks, Now I Need New Pants" award! That's quite a title. I hope my video didn't actually make someone pee their pants and is just referencing the intro of the video.

I would post YTMND AMV: Commander in Fad already for those who weren't able to see it at Otafest, but I'm still waiting on getting approval for a large upload request.

By the way, what's going on with the Pending Review's?

You should probably contact an admin or Mod personally, I believe someone mentioned before that they don't get notificated if someone requests a large upload...

I am very disappointed and embarassed to say this, but earlier today, it was brought to my attention that the legitimacy of this AMV is being called into question. I'm currently investigating this claim, and once this has been straightened out, will update this thread with the results.

My apologies everyone; I'll let everyone know as soon as possible what the outcome is. Thank you for your patience.

Cheers,
