There will be little kids at the pool, and we cannot display these AMV to this audience. Use your best discretion when determining the limits of this policy.

Re: Holiday Matsuri 2017 DEADLINE DEC 1!

In regards to the From The Vault category, it seems kind of absurd to require them to be 720p or greater. I doubt very many videos older than 11/2010 were made in HD, unless you're expecting people to upscale them (given the video's age, people probably don't have lossless copies of said video, so this would be an upscale of a compressed copy that's compressed again :| ).
