i hope to see some good vids there
Even if the morrow is barren of promises, nothing shall forstall my return.

To become the dew that quenches the land, To spare the sands, the seas, the skies, I offer thee this silent sacrifice.

Well, for the videos already on this site I think it's ok since it says
Link to the AMV: (preferably to animemusicvideos.org, absolutely no torrents or such)
And about the credits it says that they're fine if under 30 seconds.
