It's fine. As long as I know you're working on getting it exported, that's enough for me.

just out of curiosity...I might have missed that point when reading the rules... but what are the consequences or rather...how can you make sure that the participant has stopped editing after the 2hrs of editing?

Well primarily it is based on the honor system. I am trusting that people will play fairly. Besides that, at the end of the 2 hours I do ask people what the duration of their video is, even before they start exporting. It's not perfect, but I'm not going to have people send me a screenshot of their timeline or whatever.

ahhh ok thank you for noting that out...

I have another question concerning FTP and Upload speed...
My internet is usually very slow when it comes to uploading videos that are up to 100MB (can take up to 2hrs at least)...are there any policies about having to need a faster internet or such....? :o
thank you

As long as I see that you are indeed uploading it, it's fine. I understand that some people have really slow internet. Just let me know how big the file is and I'll check up on it until it's done.

Would we be allowed an increase in count to come up with the approx. 150 minutes of footage, or be limited to the 15 or so minutes that five episodes would give us?

I think we're just gonna have to look at that on a case by case basis. 99% of the time we'll be dealing with 5 22 minute long episodes. It's tough to say "use 90-120 minutes of footage" because then what about games that only have like 20-30 minutes of footage or shorter films like Voices of a Distant Star. It's a slippery slope that just tends to make things more complicated. As far as the sources in question, I really don't know. How many episodes of those appear on the DVDs?

What about a series of OVAs where each episode is about 45-50 minutes each, such as Hellsing Ultimate? Would that count as a series or individual movies?

/edit: Nevermind. Saw the answer in the other thread.

Edited the rules to add the exceptions/clarifications for individual series.

When you want to upload a file to a web server, you typically end up using something called FTP. If you're mostly used to things like YouTube or Facebook then it's not surprising that you wouldn't be familiar with FTP. It's pretty simple though. You download an FTP client (such as CuteFTP for Windows or Fetch for Mac. If you use Firefox as your web browser, check out FireFTP. It's a free addon that puts an FTP client right inside your browser. Super handy, it's what I use), and you set up an FTP server account in the program. All this consists of is saying what the FTP server address is (typically something like "ftp.websitename.com") then a login and password. When it comes time for you to upload your video to be judged, I will provide you with the server address, login, and password.

FireFTP isn't working for me! I'm sorry if I'm annoying, but it keeps saying that it isn't updated enough for my FireFox. Something like. FireFTP can't be installed because it's version 1.3.1 and my Firefox is like 6. something..

Exactly what it says is ; " FireFTP 1.99.2 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 3.6.13. "

"Works with Firefox 4.0b1 - 4.0.*"

You should update your Firefox, man - just get on Firefox pages and download the latest stable (or update internally, don't know if it's possible, though, as I am using Chrome)
