Ari, its given that youve already won, your fanbase is out of control AND you've significantly legitimately improved. :wink:
The best effects are the ones you don't notice.

Actually, I predicted weeks ago that you would win. But I hadn't counted on Sarah or Dwchang being in the ranks, and Sarah has a good chance. Now I'm not sure between the two of you who has the better shot. And it's been a while since I watched Wolf's early vids, so it could be a toss up. :?

Besides that, most of the people who like my vids don't know what the VCA's are. ^_^;;

Alright cut it out for god sakes.

Being modest is one thing,
But really come on,
Hell I voted you for best new creator,
And I've only seen a few of your works.

Just cut it out =\
You have an AWESOME chance of winning,
You ALL do (but most espcially arigatomyna because of the cercumstances she's put herself into).

There is such a thing as acting overly modest.

Uhm have you seen my first video? heh...

In all honesty though, I was pretty dern surprised with this nomination (on top of any of them) since I have been sort of quiet on the boards lately and haven't released anything in 5 months.

Either way thanks I guess and good luck to everyone...*shrug*

Actually I haven't, but if it's available, I intend to watch at least one of your early vids before making my vote. ;p

And Ryan, I'm not being modest. I *would* like to think I have a chance for most helpful, but not improved. As far as I know, in the past that section has been for members from the previous year who've improved over at least a year's time. I don't qualify for that. I don't remember if it was Flint or someone else who said it, but I haven't been here long enough to get that. I just don't have the experience.

And quite honestly, I'd be bothered if I thought a lot of people enjoyed my vids - I don't aim them for the general viewing audience. Most of the reviews I get are from people who have never posted on the forum - that's what you get when most of your vids are romance vids for a generally disliked genre.

This way I can make what I like and be lazy about it. ^_^ No pressure, you know?

Fair enough. I'm not saying I deserve it perse, but there has been improvement since I joined in 2002 ;).

I don't mean to say you don't deserve it or anything, but that's also how I voted. I figured this was an award for 2nd+ year creators. Like you compared their work from the past and onwards to see if there was major improvement. I could be wrong, but that's how I saw it.

I know what you mean on romance which is seen in my reviews (or rather how black and white they are), but there are fans *shrug*

Again good luck!

I don't know Ari. I think the fact that you have practically legitimized the Beishonen-Ai video as a genre of its own is a feat of its own, but I have had the privalege to see you grow as a creator from the first time I joined the org, and you have really done well for yourself. You deserve to be in these ranks as much as anyone else does, and don't belittle our judgement by saying you don't. I knew I didn't have a chance at any catagory, and was flattered that you listed me on your list of most helpful :oops: , but every prediction I made of your chances has come out true to the letter. You deserved to have the title of "One of the most improved creators", "One of the most helpful members", and "One of the best rookies of the Year."

All of you who are nominated should be proud of yourselves, every last one of you. My hats are off to everyone here. Thank you for creating such good videos, and being such outstanding members.

Heh, you'd think one of those 'one-of-a-kind' romance vids would have been considered 'most original'. But I made too many of them. My goal - to have the status of shonen ai creator. I think I'm about there - just wait till you see my new vid. ^.~
...but I have had the privalege to see you grow as a creator from the first time I joined the org, and you have really done well for yourself. You deserve to be in these ranks as much as anyone else does, and don't belittle our judgement by saying you don't.
You know me - a person is his own worst critic, and I've never done well in popularity contests. But I'd agree - it was very nice to see new creators improve over the last year. I *really* wish Paulo hadn't been DQ'd - I would have voted for him in a heartbeat - new member or not. Just thinking of those first rm vids I downloaded off his site and one of his latest - Premiere effect-laden yet strong drama vid - that's a huge leap of improvement. And I *do* think I've improved a great deal, don't get me wrong. I just haven't peaked. Until I do, I'm still improving. Because once you peak, you're striving to outdo yourself - and there's no fun in that unless you're a masochist. ^_^
I knew I didn't have a chance at any catagory, and was flattered that you listed me on your list of most helpful :oops:
Now who's belittling himself? ;p I'm sure I could find a *lot* of new editors who'd attest to how helpful you have been. And nice about it, too. ^_^
...but every prediction I made of your chances has come out true to the letter. You deserved to have the title of "One of the most improved creators", "One of the most helpful members", and "One of the best rookies of the Year."
You're biased, and I'm flattered. :oops: But don't get me excited about this - I don't deal well with disappointment. I like it better underground. 8)

I swear I'll make it to a con *some* day to meet the cool editors. But I'll probably be 30 by then. :?

Well, I hope to attend A-Kon again this year, so maybe we will bump into each other there. I will be the one in the James Dean leather jacket and the weather beaten leather fedora, man do I love that hat. Great at keeping the rain from my face. Makes me look like a cross between Sean Connery in "The League" and Indiana Jones. Actually, scratch the Jacket, too hot in July for the jacket, and I am sure it will not help me in achieving any 5 finger discounts. *JK*

You would probably find me in the Con Suite giving my time freely to feed you ingrates our pain-stakingly made penut butter sandwiches, and I usually pay for my tickets anyway. I just volunteer to help out.

By the way Ari,

Ari, you know me better than that. I am always honest in everything I do, and biaseness isn't even in my vocabulary. Like in my reviews, I wear my opinions out on my sleave, and when I say you deserve it, it is because you deserve it. As for your chances of winning, you already have won just by being nominated. The rest is just iceing on the cake. And if you wanted to stay in the dark, you should have never made any of those 481 opinions, or those 76 videos (My God, that is more videos in one year than most of us can hope to make in their entire careers. Makes my 8 videos look like a drop in the bucket.) Believe me, you deserve it.

Believe me, if I could I would. As it is, I don't get much time off from teaching, and it is all I can do to get to A-Kon this year. Orlando is just a little bit far for me to go.
