Welcome to the Internet! If the .Org has smaller voter pool this year such that a group of folks can bring to light the pitfalls of the VCAs in a new and interesting way...the fact remains that nothing's changed: the VCA's are what they are and this is just a new spin on an old tune. If some kind of misconduct has gone on to the point where it's skewed the contest, hopefully the admins' investigation will turn it up. Otherwise, welcome to the VCAs?

Oh yeah, and don't forget to order YOUR 2013 VCA t-shirt from the a-m-v.org site store, available in two styles!

Seeing people with multiple videos in the same category is actually a rather common occurrence with the VCAs. The only thing we're looking into was if there were proxy accounts used to get them there and how to handle it if this is the case.

Switching out the poorly executed sock puppets from the ones who know how to stagger account creation dates, account info, and know to refresh their proxies after every login. :sorcerer:

There are 120 finalist spots up for grabs (see the first line). The percentage represents how much of the result is unique. I.E. the portion of the round that isn't just duplicates of the same videos or the same editors

Look at the percentages. See how this year's percentages are lower then last year's? What he's saying is that this year there are less unique videos via percentage then last year. Thus, the opposite of your statement.
