The competition really is about making a Greeting. You can enter a movie, of course, and if we think it looks like a Greeting, we'll consider it. If it doesn't, we won't throw it out, but it probably won't win. smile.gif


Ack! Okay, scrubbing original idea. Were's my muse? Muse! C'mon, muse! Ah, there it is! :idea:

How do we submit an entry?


When you upload your movie, you'll see the competition entry form on the movie page.


You can also submit your movie from the competition page itself. If you're logged in to your Moviestormer account, you'll see a drop-down list (just below the heading "Enter this competition"). The list contains every movie currently uploaded on your Moviestormer page. Just pick the appropriate movie and click "Enter now".

Obviously, for this to work you'll need to be logged in to the site, and you'll need to have uploaded your competition entry movie already.


I uploaded my movie a few minutes ago, 'Jingle Bell Funk' (shameless plug, sorry) but did not see a link to submit to competition. Also tried from my account, but nothing there. Do I have to wait til the movie is encoded before I see anything?

Nolos.

I think submissions closed at midnight GMT, which was like 4 hours, 15 minutes ago, I believe.

Great, I'm a victim of the cross continental time warp thingy. Also, a 49er fan had to tell me. And yeah, the Raiders have sucked for the last few years, but I'm still a fan. One day they WILL win a game.

I have faith.

Oh no! To late!

I thought it was midnight in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday.
So I planned to upload it today.

Done all that work in vain. sad.gif

As I type this, Google GMT states...

Tuesday, 16 December 2008
08:07:33 (a.m.)

..which means...unless I'm mistaken...
that there should be 16 hours to go.

What's going on?

Seems like a noon deadline might be less confusing. My guess is still submit your movies today and see what Yolise has to say when she gets to work.

I'm guessing that they're going on the fact that when it turns midnight, it becomes the 16th...I dunno, that's why when I used to run online leagues for sports video games, I would give 11:59pm deadline hours to make things clearer for this exact reason. tongue.gif

Maybe a little countdown clock or something might help?
I am however, of the opinion a mistake has been made.
Maybe by me for not entering earlier smile.gif
Oh well...no big deal.

Don't panic guys, I think Midnight is 14 and a half hours away by my reckoning (it is 09.30 am on Tuesday the 16th right now)

Don't down tools yet, but do hurry!

We had a long conversation about this actually because it confused me rather badly as well. Because it's automated, it's a server system clock issue. So the competition has ended already, I'm sorry to say.

I've already decided that any other competitions will end at noon GMT from now on!

Sorry to anyone who missed the deadline, so, if you've got an entry, post it in this thread and we'll consider it up until the end of today. That's 11:59 pm (23:59) GMT, Tuesday the 16th for the avoidance of confusion!
