A call to nominating voters

Post by Otohiko » Sat Feb 19, 2005 4:09 pm

Greetings to voters of all ages, genders, nationalities and IQ levels.

As I appealed to the editors at the start of the previous round, so I would appeal to you at the start of this round.

Please remember: your votes are what makes this contest work. They are also what makes this contest sometimes not work.

I encourage everyone to think for a bit about what a vote in any particular category means. It's a vote for a video that excels in a certain respective area of AMVing. It is not a vote for a video which you want to win a prize, and don't care what prize (as long as, you say, it wins something just cause it's an awesome video).

Even more so, I encourage everyone to try and actually download all the nominees before making a call (and that should go without saying).

So, look at the category first, consider what it means, and then vote for videos. Not the other way around.

***

This should be common sense, but it's starting to dawn on me that, perhaps, it isn't as common as it ought to be.

Vote responsibly.

Man, if only there's a way this message can go across to the voters who DON'T EVEN GO TO THIS FORUM. :?

Yeah I think these instructions should be posted on the final voting page.
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

The question would be what percentage of the would be perpetrators would actually take the time to read that?

Make it into an "annoying" pop-up page similar to that pledge page. :roll:

Even if one or two would, I'd consider it a great success :roll:

No, I full-well realize the relative futility of this, but I still have some hope that reason and democracy can go hand in hand.

Wow, I wish I had your faith in humanity. I've come to assume that people-in-general are either really stupid or don't care. Possibly both.

But well said, and here's hopin'. *thumbs-up* I'll be downloading the stuff I haven't seen yet tomorrow, most likely. (I know, I should've done it last time, but I didn't vote in every category before. Just the ones in which I knew a lot of the entrants.)

Anyway. Well said.

I agree that the pledger-type page before getting to vote would be nice. If it pops up often enough that would at least get most of the idiots to give up -_-
Also make it short and simple as possible... I don't think I need to explain why.

Figures. You live in Canada. a.k.a not in the U.S. :wink:

But yeah, it's great that you're trying, whereas many here (who CAN also make a difference, however small) don't bother to speak out and have already left the VCAs.

Yeah unfortunateley I tend to read first, think later. Meaning I may consider all the entrys but skip the rules o.0
