You do know I was only kidding right? I've never really looked for a nuke on ebay before.

I know a guy in Iran who can give me a great deal! :lol:

Na, I'm just playing. It's kinda sad that I have to explain I'm kidding. Cause as we all know the government is watching us (especially us AMV Otaku people. They want us worst then the consperacy theory nuts!) So that I don't have secret service knocking down my door I would like to make it perfectly clear that I was just joking.

Ok let's get serious for a moment here.
First, no you did not break any rules. But the AMV community kinda looks down on people who send to a zillion conventions because technically it IS trolling (AMV citizins arrest?). The only reason the contest cordinators don't consider it such is because you sent it to a billion cons at once (got to love/ hate that rule).

Right now there is a big conersation going on in the AMV mailing list over your video actually. Much argument about submitting to con's you don't attend and such and possible paying to compeat and stuff. You should go check it out. Maybe participate since the main topic subject is names "That Yatta Vid".

Lastly, I totally understand where you are comming from in reguards to sending out to the cons all at once. It's eazy to do, and it covers your ass if you win an award and won, yet the deadline for another con has not arrived yet. I personally would LOVE to have my vid win a bunch of awards throughout the year.
But the question I keep asking myself in requards to your "we did not think we would win anyway so what the hell?" is, if you did not think you were going to win anyway, then why did you send the video to a con at all, let alone many?

I'll let you guys talk amungst yourselves now as I'm going to go hide in my bunker until a shot comes my way. :roll:

OK OK OK Hold on.

Let's stop for a second here.


Rachael, you've made a video that lots of people like and it has done very well in the contests you have entered it into. You should be very very proud. Well done.

Now, I know that people may feel cheated if, in future contests, you win again... basically because the video has received its recognition and it is unfair on other people who are entering. The usual sort of analogy is "How would you like it if you worked hard on a dance video and Odorikuru was entered into the contest and won... again."

Obviously, you didn't know that you were going to win, and that's fair enough. You weren't to know. I guess the sporting thing to do when you've won lots of awards is to contact the cons that you've submitted to and ask them if it can be a non-competing entry.

It's not your fault, you're a victim of the video's sucess :) Just be aware that people may get irritated if you go on to win at another 3 contests.

You haven't broken any rules - if anything, the cons should be a little more specific about videos that have been entered into other contests. One thing I will say is that next year you may see a rule that would stop you from entering into this many contests. Sorry ^^;;;
