This is for general discussion for whatever doesn't fit in the other forums but that is VCA-related. You can also ask questions about the contest here. :sorcerer:

We're already 99.9% sure what it'll be. Just need to get an official title and description worked out. Should hopefully be up by the end of the day.

Personally I'm starting to think that with the current categories we are doing fine. I dunno if the organizators want to keep with the 'New category', unless they really want it. For me it's ok if there's no new category :shark:

While I feel the same way, there was a rather amount of support to have a custom category.

I mean: since when was announced the thread of 'new category'? and how much time has passed from then?

At this rate, I believe we could even have brought the voting already :bear:

The new category is not what is holding the voting up at all.

In previous years, VCAs usually didn't start until the very end of January. The threads were put up early to promote discussion.

Plus, they usually give about a week between announcing the dates and when the first round even starts. (or it feels like it at least)

In order to be eligible for the VCAs the video must have been released in 2012. If they waited till after the New Year to add the entry on the Org then they'll have to wait until the 2014 VCAs. So even though the video you linked was essentially made in 2012, they didn't release it until 2013 so it would not be eligible for the 2013 VCAs.

There is still some final prep for everyone to do before the first round begins, especially checking which videos qualify and if there are any you want to "opt-out" of competition.

Everyone should make sure to check the VCA section of the members page when it goes live before the first round, as once the nominations start, there's no going back.

Because there is the preview option which works exactly like a youtube stream?

I think this might be a silly question (since I can see from last year that it's true)
but can some videos be in multiple categories for voting?
It seems like there are certain videos that are showing up in several different threads, and that's not a bad thing at all! Congrats to the editors! :'D
But will contest come down to 4 or 5 videos taking all the awards? Does that happen a lot in the VCAs?
