progosk; awesome job on laying all this out.

and not to dismiss all the poll creation......

but weren't we going to do an 'open ballot'; similar to the nomination process? Wasn't ballott stuffing a major problem?
         
progosk, December 13, 2006 1:42:47 AM CET
cap'n: tho i'll confess to bending that precept, my feeling was
1. the nominations distilled a pretty fair, representative, and all-round worthy set of finalists, making any possible residual ballot stuffing here pretty insignificant (or at least, nothing to do with last year's morningwood).
2. were folks really up for another round of extenuating commenty-votery?

nonetheless, if it be deemed, i shall brave the plank - honni soit qui mal y pense.

(oh, and: k, thx - updated.)
         
birryboy, December 13, 2006 1:31:20 PM CET
thanks to progosk seconded - great work all round.

I lurk much, and comment little so it seems appropriate at this festive time of year to send thanks to all the people who contribute so much good stuff to Anville regularly too - happy christmas all!
         
otaku-house, December 13, 2006 10:16:56 PM CET
i suck.

you should put Rob Ryang down as editor. he's the person who should get credit for it.
         
kevathens, December 13, 2006 10:38:09 PM CET
We'll be crediting the appropriate parties per category once it's all done, though thanks for the credit. Final PR is in the works.

I see a shortlist press release wasn't entirely necessary, as someone loves us at cpluv

and prog did some PR work at metafilter

plus: sonic magazine

mention: super45

salters calls antville "the online daily hangout of the entire music video community" - um, really? He also tags his site's viewers to vote for him. =:*
         
progosk, December 13, 2006 10:46:20 PM CET
proper credits are where it's at - if you're in the know, out with it!
         
kevathens, December 13, 2006 10:53:12 PM CET
Meanwhile, best new director is emerging as the highest-voted category at 85 votes at this moment, compared to 37 at the lowest. I've been chronicling results and writing figures down as things progress..
         
otaku-house, December 13, 2006 11:25:06 PM CET
you want to know how much i love antville? my grammy nomination means less to me than the fact i didn't get no antville love. :( i love you nerds.
         
progosk, December 13, 2006 11:35:36 PM CET
ramon is getting esprsso.net shots, while arno and aleix are rounding up their posses. do i spot the cap'n fuming...?

(oh, and ghostrobot is drumming up all kinds of support...)
         
arno-s, December 14, 2006 12:26:25 AM CET
for art direction on the seb martel - full credit goes to Mahi Grand (who also art directed my GE video).
         
hiconcept, December 14, 2006 7:32:37 AM CET
I know I missed the nomination process, but I think "Empire" got shafted...
         
dingleberry, December 14, 2006 8:49:36 AM CET
PROG&KEV: if what you want is a "true antvilleans only" vote, then why not count only the votes from usernames that have commented a certain number of times (5? 10? 15?), as opposed to usernames that were created only for the vote...

I think captainmarc had mentionned an easy way to figure out the number of comments.

or even count only votes from usernames that where created prior to december 06.
         
zerocross, December 14, 2006 12:24:45 PM CET
as a fellow antville citizen i casted my votes! looking forward to the outcome ... some categories are already decided while others are not! thanks for making this happen.


ps: i know i should not bitch around after the nominations are made but could it be that we all forgot "POLYSICS - Now is the Time"?
youtube.com
sorry for the shittube link.
         
kevathens, December 14, 2006 1:17:28 PM CET
The actual name of that Polysics vid is I My Me Mine, and as najork asked and prog responded, it came out in Oct 2005.

dingle: I think we're trying to avoid the bourgeois sense that having a "true antvillean" vote would cause. There are quite a few lurkers around here, many of whom used to comment frequently. I did not help Prog decide, btw, in the final voting process displayed here, so he's the guy we can chop into bits.

Videoville and Director File are down btw, sorry about that.
         
progosk, December 15, 2006 12:07:03 AM CET
pitchfork do their 25. (via hippocampe.)
         
kevathens, December 15, 2006 1:47:40 AM CET
I just posted my ten best videos of 2006.

If anyone has an issue with the selection, you can meet me in the town square at high noon tomorrow. Bring a good luck charm: you're going to need it.
         
kevathens, December 16, 2006 3:04:17 AM CET
This post has been sensibly erected, waxy'd and, um, maybe'd?
         
robodrug, December 16, 2006 5:09:17 PM CET
Nominees are excellent from wot I've watched, voted accordingly
Glad to have a chance to see wot other Antvillians thought woz the best works dis year
I'm impressed! Thxs
         
kevathens, December 18, 2006 6:06:52 PM CET
Time to close up shop, dude.
         
kevathens, December 18, 2006 7:11:14 PM CET
Cracked! (Dec 18 webpicks)
         
progosk, December 18, 2006 9:01:19 PM CET
opera ain't over til the fat lady sings. (stay tuned...)
         
kevathens, December 18, 2006 11:35:38 PM CET
P: Nope, sir, time to seal it.
         
progosk, December 19, 2006 12:07:01 AM CET

kevathens, December 19, 2006 12:14:56 AM CET
You're being elusive, P. "all&one": Are you disregarding my sentiment in my e-mail about declaring winners in Art Dir and Best New, or what? Clarity, sir, not profundity!
         
progosk, December 19, 2006 12:19:04 AM CET

kevathens, December 19, 2006 12:21:22 AM CET
