VCA Updates & Questions Thread

Post by Radical_Yue » Tue Feb 03, 2015 12:30 am

Any Updates that the Administration needs to make for the VCAs will be posted here. Please not that the VCAs and their schedule are subject to change at any time if we find a problem with the current setup. We'll do our best to prevent delays but sometimes things just happen. D:
If you have questions, please feel free to post and we'll do our best to answer.

Schedule
Soooooon...

Common Questions

Question: What are the VCAs?
VCA is short for Viewers Choice Awards. It's an annual contest that we hold here on AnimeMusicVideos.org where we vote on our favorite videos from the prior year, in this case 2014. It's like the Oscars if they were open for everyone to vote (that means you!) and if the Oscars were awesome.

Question: Can I vote for myself in the VCAs?
Answer: Yes. You can vote for whoever and whatever you want as long as they show up as a possible nomination.

Question: I'm not an editor but can I still vote in the VCAs?
Answer: Of course you can! As long as you are a registered member of AnimeMusicVideos.org you're welcome to vote for your favorite videos! Don't be afraid to post links to help grab some attention for AMVs that you think could use a little more love.

Question: Can I advertise for myself in the VCA threads?
Answer: Please do not advertise for yourself in the threads. While you're allowed to vote for yourself, the threads are for advertising and bringing attention to other videos. There is a shameless self promotion thread where you can advertise for yourself and your videos.

Question: I've posted my favorite videos on the forum. Does this mean I voted for them?
Answer: NO. The forums are simply for discussion of videos. If you wish to vote for them, there will be a separate form on the main website. Please keep an eye out for the form since it will not be available until the voting begins. Check the schedule of events to see when each round of voting begins and ends.

Question: My video/This video is not showing up as a possible nomination! What is wrong?
Answer: If it's your video, please double check the eligibility page to make sure you meet all the requirements.
If it is your video and everything looks good on that page or if it's another video that you simply know about but isn't showing up, please let us know ASAP in the EVERYTHING IS BAD FOREVER (Error Thread) thread.

Question: I don't want to take part in the VCAs even though I am eligible. How do I opt out?
Answer: Go to the Edit Profile section of the site and uncheck the box that says "All of my videos have been entered into the catalog"

Just want to make sure... to nominate an entry, do I just post in this forum or is there a web thingy I need to visit somewhere else?

Thanks.

Seems to be a bit more active than last year, just from glancing at the 2014 VCAs subforum...

The majority of the posts this year are from before the event started. Last year there were posts durring and after each round. By people in charge no less. Actually announcing round dates and that rounds had started even. And large organized livestream that brought in dozens of people every night, establishing a weird air of community. It was madness. :dino:

I was just about to start my mega-marathon watching to get as many nominations in as possible before midnight, when all of the sudden the end of the semi-finals is delayed a week!

So i've got more time, yay! But i am curious what the reason was. Technical issues? Too many people like me putting it off to the last minute? Something else?

I'm guessssssing it was people putting it off and/or forgetting about it entirely.
