So generally this has turned into Russian contest with a bit of international support? :>

Would it be possible to give us info about nationality of the voters in percent? :<

Sorry, but a-m-v.org is not the whole center of the amv world anymore. Russians might have a bigger community? Live with it and ask yourself why people are leaving this website! Russians make awesome videos? Cry me a river and make some awesome videos too?

Nya, I'm sorry that I pick on you too, but as you can see Krisqo pissed me off and you're part of the colletaral damage.


I don't care, mainly since you have a point, but still it kinda saddens me that it's so one-sided, more and more every year. But all I can do is blame the others but Russians, mainly, that they don't vote and promote enough... :|

At least with qwaqa's winning entries I can say I've watched over half the amount of winning videos :amv:
I don't know, I didn't quite like his "Time" video but the "Ian Fleming..." was pretty well done and cool, I must admit, I don't understand the fuss. If russians are more, and they all vote for the russian guy, it's gonna win. It's a popularity contest like mirko said, not a deserved award one.

It's only natural, it's not russians or french or whatever nationality you want to put. It's just that it seems russian community is way bigger than other ones, and maybe the one active at the Org (meaning participating in forums, etc.).

I have to agree with his point.

Congratulations to winners, somehow I've watched most of the videos before the semis and from what I recall they were good enough.

pd: does someone know what the numbers near the username mean at the winners table? "Bonefixer (+10)" or others.

It's the extra members who created the video as a multi-editor project. In the above case, it would be 11 total editors - Bonefixer and 10 others.

Orly? Ignorance is bliss. Use google translator here and here. Its simple: you guys use Zarxrax GUI, and all russian community use my AMVsimple for encoding. So don't give me bullshit if you please. Still I'm surprised that I got this nomination O_o

I don't know about this year because I wasn't paying attention, but I know the last two years several people were manually removed from rookie because they had released earlier videos on other sites. I'm not sure if they were removed from VCAs entirely or not for not listing all their videos in the orgs system, but they were ineligible for rookie. The only reason Rookie, or any category really, is tied to the org is that most things are automatically done via queries to the org database. But the people running things can and do manually remove stuff based on what happens on other websites.

That being said, I'm really surprised mirkosp didn't win. The rest of the results I pretty much expected, although I think this year is the lowest # of winners I agreed with ever, but Most Helpful surprised me a lot.

Old and not rus AMV, your FIX was not tactful for russian AMV authors.

yeah some campaigning on your part would have been nice. I sort of assumed this type of thing to be true (is that the GUI in the Help video? did you use WW2 Medal of Honor type sounds?? lol wtf??) but yeah the fact that most ppl that discuss here have no clue kind of makes no sense seeing as we basically are the host... it'd just have been nice lol.

Poor Zarx >.< no offense to you though.

/begin obligatory VCA whining

I agree with only 2 of the VCA's this year. Probably lowest number since I've been here. >__________>

But that's just me. :|

But hey, at least we got the JCA's! I mean, it's not like that was derailed or anything. :uhoh:

Thanks everyone for the votes!

Quite honestly, funny that people who put down the VCAs so much then turn around and enter contests that have audience voting anyways (isn't that then a popularity vote as well???) :roll:

I thing the results are fine... there are always other videos that deserve recognition, I do agree, however I double there will be a time that everyone will agree with everything.. I remember even people back lashing against the JCAs too...

Congrats to all the winners!!!

I can only hope I was one of your two :uhoh:

And I really have to ask, what are the JCA's? I'm not sure I've heard of them.

Looking over the winners again, I'm surprised not to see Fluffy Kittens anywhere. Considering how it got voted up in a good chunk of the categories and caused a lot of discussion. I figured it would be a shoo in.

And Code, how do you get the coolest avys?

Because that's usually blind voting not biased by anything like name, nationality or stuff like that.

JCAs are in work right now, inthesto is managing them ATM.
Fluffy Kittens got the letdown because of the drama around them, I think. Which is bad, that shouldn't have happened, because it's good video, just not understood one.
And you get cool picture, crop it in a cool way, resize cooly and upload in your freezer ;x
