Free Ops (Restrictions, Read First Post)

Postby Athena » Mon Oct 08, 2012 7:31 am

Emong's landscape post reminds me I haven't opped anyone in awhile. I will fix that now.

Image

Rules:

1) No Naruto, No DBZ, No Death Note, No Linkin Park, no Death Metal or anything I would consider to be painful to my ears (Korn, Slipknot, etc, etc). I reserve the right to disqualify any video.

2) Only the first qualified video posted per round will be opped. This is very important, people always mess this system up, so I'll try to offer an example:

- Kionon posts, "Okay I am ready."
- Poster 1 posts, "Here's this video, it meets the qualifications."
- Poster 2 posts, "Here's my video, it meets the qualifications."

I will only op Poster 1's video. Poster 2 will have to try again the next time I post that a new round has started and that I am ready. There are exceptions.

3) Should the first video be disqualified, the second video will be chosen, should the second video be disqualified, the third video will be chosen, and so on. Should all videos be disqualified, the round will be restarted.

4) Kimagure Orange Road jumps the queue.

5) Utena jumps the queue, unless a KOR video is already in the queue.

6) 80s video source jumps the queue, unless an Utena or a KOR video is already in the queue.

7) 80s audio source jumps the queue, unless 80s video, Utena, or KOR are already in the queue.

8) Nothing jumps the queue after I have accepted a video. As an example, Poster 2 posts Utena, I accept, Poster 3 says, "but wait, I have a KOR video!" Too late. You have to beat me to the thread.

9) I highly recommend you take great care processing. If you present badly processed video (interlacing, improper aspect ratio, macroblocking, subtitles, logos, etc...) that is all I will spend time talking about.

10) I retain the right to cease rounds at any time, for any reason, usually because of my own wandering attention span.

If you are NOT clear on the rules, ask.

Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Accepted. In bed, watched on my iPad. Might be a good 15 hours or so until it gets written.

Cecco, a new round does not start until I say "Okay, I'm ready." This is rule number 2. I haven't written Leonhearth's op yet. We are still in Round 1.

In fairness, butterflo, I'm not sure I can really be more verbose than I was in the announcement thread. I don't know the music, I don't know the source, and in truth, the only reason I didn't give you a description of what I thought you were doing is because I didn't want to spoil it for other viewers. If you want me to go ahead and do that in an OP, I will, but it won't be particularly long.

It's also outside the purview of the The Opinion Games, so if you really do want the OP, I would feel better if it doesn't count toward a round, so as far as I'm concerned, the round goes on.

Thank you. I would even accept low scores if it's for a truthful opinion from you :up:

Sorry, Animated. Disqualified. Rule 1 clearly states, "No Death Note." I realise this was a multi-anime video, but rules are rules. For what's worth, while it's not particularly my style, and you had some macroblocking issues, I liked the edgy, experimental feeling of the video in general. Not sure I'd be able to watch it multiple times though, which is why DQing is probably for the best. I usually loop a video several times in order to write detailed ops, and that might be difficult for me.

The round goes on.

Butterflo, all right, but it will not count for purposes The Opinion Games. Your op will be entirely independent.

No problem at all, Kionon. As for Death Note, yes, I had read the rules but those scenes were about... 2 seconds long, so I thought it wouldn't matter. Thank you for your comment anyway! And kudos for opening such a thread :up:
