It was posted in the results thread after last round's fiasco with names. It was also a basis for frequent conversation when the videos and results came out last round.

I mean, good grief, it's a BLIND contest for judging. I thought it was obvious enough without having to say anything in the rules. But, while I was sympathetic the first round because the rules didn't actually say anything about it, I can't be sympathetic now, because it was posted and people were warned. If I don't disqualify you, it's unfair to the other competitors that did compete fairly, and who the judges don't know. I know it's a small and petty thing to be disqualified over, but it is out of my hands. I have to run the contest as fairly as I can, especially since this is an org-supported contest.

EDIT:

My favorite videos in a non-randomized order, but still not in an order that reflects my favorites.

1 [Makes me want to watch that imaginary show now. O_o]
2 [AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. MY EARS]
4 [You do realize that Chobits had a HAPPY ending, right?]
10 [Most literal interpretation of theme EVER. :awesome: ]
11 [SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE tennis]
13 [Most oddly fitting crossover ever. O-o]
19 [WTF. Just... WTF? But nice and creative. XD]

While I agree it was pretty obvious, I'm usually just completely oblivious though, and it's kind of hard to remember that when I was getting caught up in actually trying to make a decent video. I just feel it would of been more fair had I received a notification of the rule change. I also don't believe the name was that noticeable in my video nor would it have affected any of the judging really.

I was actually rather disappointed in this round's videos. I know it was due to the theme of the round but it seemed like most of them required to viewer to have seen the show in order to understand what was going on. But that's probably just my feeling since I hadn't seen most of the shows (the moe ones) and they seemed like regular AMVs. I just felt lost watching them. I don't like having to take other people's word for it that a video was good. Even with the ones whose shows I had seen, I couldn't remember enough to fully get what was going on. But absolutely I loved the ones that either had their own story or made the story they were based off of obvious. Imho those videos should score better than the ones that just used the anime's story (is that just my bias?).

Damnit MCHY. >:/

The video will still be judged for standings purposes, but it will be disqualified from the competition.

If he's disqualified, why does it still need to be judged?

My video didn't get completely judged. Code, you should put his name up next to mostly zeroes, and in bold, and highlighted red.

You know, to be fair.

Hey, here's an idea: how about instead of kicking MCHY for identifying himself, how about we just kick him for being petty and mean and slanderous. You know, send a message about being sportsmanlike instead of just a minor identification infraction.
"Hey Murderer, you're holding your knife wrong. For that, you can no longer work for social services."
Either way he still gets kicked, but you know, just saying.

I'm going to continue my desire to remain polite and address this as professionally as possible.

MCHY has a chance to be given a standing above those that were disqualified, eliminated and dropped from the first round, and those that dropped in the second round. He cannot be above those competing or eliminated in round 2. His scores are merely for decorative purposes and will have no real standing in the competition. He also personally requested them. And yes, he will still be getting the highlighted red treatment.

If you truly wish, I will gladly instruct the judges to score your video melee, and change the standings page to reflect its true score. I didn't know that this had upset you. My sincerest of apologies.

It's not going to change the fact that you were disqualified [it was a blatant rule violation, the same of which I'm DQ'ing MCHY for now], but I will be happy to try and amend any broken bridges between you and the contest. I just want to make everyone happy, but I'm not naive enough to believe it's possible.

Each contest is a learning experience, and I plan to use these experiences to build better contests in the future. PE has only had one prior successful run, and that was with fewer people involved. I've had many wonderful reccomendations from many different people, so if you have anything that you believe would make future contests better, then I will gladly hear them and implement them should I believe them to be beneficial.

Thank you,

I was being facetious, if anything I think quite the opposite. Judge his video, your reasoning is sound. (The same reasoning should have been applied last round, specifically to me lol.) However, MCHY (apparently) didn't break any rules maliciously, and on a side note neither did I. We were just lazy and didn't read the rules. Obviously, to the people who followed the rules, eliminating them over someone who broke rules is unfair. That's completely understandable.

Here's the thing though, the fact that people are still dropping, but you still want to have eliminations seems, for lack of a better word, stupid. This is just my opinion. I think you're finally down to a number of people who actually want to be here, but for some reason you keep pushing us away. :D

I get it, this is in the form of a reality show, people have to go every round. Thing is, they are, on their own. |:

Next year, eliminations will not be a problem. Actually, neither will disqualifications. Kosmit came up with a fantastic idea, which I will be implementing next year. For now, however, I have to keep going with how I started, and there's not much I can do.

The reasoning behind my eliminations each round, is because it's really not fair to those that keep making videos. They're not really "triumphing" over anybody if they only win because people keep leaving.

Next year, I will DEFINITELY be having a preliminary round before the contest starts. I was honestly stunned with the number of drops we had in round one. I knew we'd have a few, but we lost nearly HALF of the contestants. >_>
