I don't believe that anything was actively done to fix the MEP or collab categories.AmvLuna wrote:Why Anime's Got Talent and Giggles n' Jiggles are in best collab and not best mep? I thought you guys fixed it
but once again, I personally feel that Anime's Got Talent and Giggles n' Jiggles are right to be in the collab section even if they go against the definition that GloryQuestor used as a MEP being a project with 3 or more editors.kireblue wrote:I also feel that this definition is slightly flawed as well. For example: Both and were created by a group of 3 editors, but I think that most people would agree that they are undoubtedly collabs and not MEPs due to the lack of any segmentation throughout the video. So instead of having tracks, each editor contributed to every part of the video. Its would be pretty impossible to have a system automatically check for this characteristic, and so I think that upping the limitation of a collab to 3 members would be a good change. I don't ever recall seeing a video that I'd consider to be a collab that had 4 editors, and so defining a MEP as a video with 4 or more editors might work.GloryQuestor wrote: Edit: Never mind all that. Yue clued me in on the fact that our rules had changed years ago, but we never really updated our actual definitions on the pages to reflect this. tl;dr, Collaborative is 2 creators, MEP = 3+ creators. The original intent was to separate out Hell-style multi-track from "collaboration" on a single-audio track project, but it was changed in 2012 to reflect the number of creators.
We are already discussing how to handle the semifinal round this year, and we will make sure that the official pages for these awards are updated to reflect the number of creators in a video rather than the style of the project.
The real error IMO is that "Break the Rules MEP" is in the collab category even though it actually has MEP in the name.
