It seems that description of Best Trailer or Commercial category is wrong and actually refers to Most artistic category.

The only link to this section in the main forum is a link that doesn't propagate the "there are new posts" notification flag, so the color is always the same. I didn't realize anyone had even posted here until I accidentally clicked on it. Surely this wonderful new layout has a solution to this longstanding problem.

Is there even a filter being applied? I thought they had to sort them into MEP/collab by hand based on the "tracks" criteria.

Half and half. Years ago, the initial queries were set up based on number of collaborators, with the idea that fewer collaborators would be more likely to be "collab" and more would be more likely to be "MEP". Since so few changes need to be made after this query (moving less than a dozen from mep->collab or collab->mep), the queries weren't updated. (If you base it on audio tracks, you could still have an issue if people use "credits music" :shrug:)

That said, I'm not familiar with last year's videos, and I didn't do the inspection/sorting, so I have no idea which MEPs might be missing.
As for First Video/Rookie, the first videos are also inspected to see if the editor had a previous "first video" on Youtube or something, so some entries were removed there. (again, I didn't do the inspection, but I did send this thread to GQ)

I reviewed the notes I received for Cheis106 and Joy's amv.
Cheis106 appears to have released videos in 2014, listed at the bottom here: https://plus.google.com/+Cheis106AMV/posts
Joy's amv appears to have been a mistake, and has been added to the nomination choices.

Those videos on google+(unlisted and some deleted) were just "random" videos published on yt at the end of 2014. I do not consider them as the real beginning of my current production , which in fact started in 2015, with the first amv on the org. But ok, you are free to decide about it. Thank you for your time.

The moment you release your first AMV to internet, you start your lifetime production, them's the rules, sadly. Otherwise we'd have many people "restarting" their careers - you can see it sometimes with YouTube channels anyway. And it wouldn't be fair to put some five years editing person with a total newbie just because the former decided it was the time for the "real" start.

There are a lot of MEP videos with MEP in the title that could easily be moved to the MEP category...

Just because something is called a "MEP", it's not a Multi-Editor Project as defined for the contest award.

Let me see if I can make it simpler than explained in the contests:

- A Collaboration, for the purposes of the award, is "many coming together to create one"; in other words one seamless, single audio track project or idea where the audio and video both are not separate and distinct.

- A Multi-Editor Project, for the purposes of the award, is "many ideas folded into one"; in other words a project featuring separate songs (even by the same artist) and multiple distinct video "tracks" in the same video project. (i.e. AMV Hell, AyuMix)

Does that help you understand the difference?

So basically you changed the meaning of MEP from previous years to ONLY include hell style videos?
