@Lorencio just told me he's down for a little competition. I think he'll do great if he just cuts back on his shit starting debate threads and focuses on winning the top prize. You got this dude, I'm rooting for you
Squid mentioned this to me so I'm just seeing what the deal is.
@Libertas, is it numbers you were thinking of, as in, whoever posts the most in that period wins? I don't think I could dedicate that much time to posting, so winning isn't my goal, but I'm happy to get involved to boost some interest.
And I saw you mentioned reposts. If two videos were posted by 2 members but one has, for example, a theYNC watermark running down it, and the other one is clean, would you deem that a repost or a seperate video in it's own right?
I'm asking because I accidently uploaded one earlier (apologies to @kony) although it didn't have a watermark. Just curious really
Yeah will there be a vote on quality uploads? Like if some member posted a video not widely shared on sites like Kaotic etc. Making your own watermark which interferes with the video and unnecessary intros should count against if that's the case. I like clean videos or at least if there is a watermark there's only one.
I believe that the contestants should reply to this thread, and edit in all of their entries in so that we can check them out after the contest ends with some members' assistance (e.g. @Kayla and @SpecterP -- if they wish to help, of course) and check for reposts, etc.
To answer your other question, I believe that it's only fair to count the one without the watermark, cause it had to have been harder to obtain to begin with.
Ultimately, I do agree with SpecterP -- quality does matter, and I will have to talk to @kony and see if he can stop re-encoding the videos unnecessarily. A lot of these videos are filmed on cheap Android phones and are bitstarved to begin with, so re-encoding them multiple times doesn't help one bit...
