First contest i actually win and my award gets stolen. Not cool at all.
Friggin crappy.. Never heard of that happening at other cons. I mean what if you actually had been there and were just slow to pick it up? What would the other person say then? Pretty damn low.

Even if that did happen Chii, Adam is amazing and would probably get you another trophy.

I wonder how they knew you weren't going to be there? You probably should have let the contest coordinators know ahead of time. The latest contest I went to (Megacon 2008) the coordinators knew (of the winners) who was going to be there to pick up their award and whose to hold.

I do recall telling them that i wasnt going to be there.. though maybe that was for another con. -__-

Eh well at least ill learn from this. For future cons ill make sure i tell them that i wont be there and if in the event i win something, anyone who claims it is an imposter. =\

Yes, on the submission form there is a question asking if you are going to be attending or not. I wonder how that person was able to get it. :? While it really just plain stinks that someone would do that, we all know who the winner is. Not the stealer, but you. :)

Also, Kiarrens is right. Adam is a great guy and when he hears about this I'm sure he'll try to send out another one to you.

On a side note, I really wish you could have been there to hear the audience's reaction, Chiikaboom! They were going wild. I had seen the video before seeing it on the big screen at Anime Boston, and hearing it blasting got my blood pumping. My friends and I were belting out the lyrics. :P That video will never get old.

^
Yeah that is right it was on the form o__o

maybe the people on youtube who're sending me msgs about it "being so awesome to meet me in person" and "accepting that award" and shet are messing with my head :?

Well i emailed Adam about it anyway, we'll see what he says about it.

Yeeeaaahhhh... not sure if I would trust the youtube crowd. I couldn't make it to the wrap-up panel this year unfortunately, but I wish I had just so I could have shed some light on this mystery. :)

I really hope that's the case because I never would have imagined someone would try to claim someone else's trophy (I mean, how would that make the person feel good anyway?). It does sound like that person is messing with you though. I've come across some very, let's say... dishonest people on YouTube. :?

Boo! I'm dying to show it to my sister. Con plague sucks though, feel better soon.

Posting just to throw out some love for Fate's Demons. I was supremely pissed that it didn't win anything, despite being incredibly well put together and even using Genesis.

Also sad face for Serenade not winning anything either. I laughed so hard my eye popped out. .(

Chiika: Whoever took your award must have gone to great lengths to do so. Adam checked my ID when I picked up mine, so if he also checked for the Best Editing award then that person was planning this for awhile.

Either that or they made off with it when his back was turned at some point. But I think he would have noticed if one of his awards went missing and contacted you about the theft...

In any case, that person has got some serious issues. I'm so sorry!! When I heard about this, I frantically checked MY award to make sure he didn't give me "Best Editing" by mistake...but nope. :(

DOKOOL MUST BE PUNISHED!

Post by Fetch26291 » Mon Mar 24, 2008 11:02 am

Quick! What is penalty for causing mental trauma to fourteen thousand plus people?

For that is what Dokool has done with his AMV that was shown at Anime Boston.

So I went to Anime Boston and noticed someone didn't get their award, so I took that as an opportunity...... :twisted: :roll:
