my name is legion, December 15, 2011 10:55:44 AM CET
nice job brigs
         
almotasim, December 15, 2011 11:06:32 AM CET
amazing job, brigs. For the first time, I feel that I'll be glad with the victory of any of the nominees for video of the year. But I'm still rooting for Manchester Orchestra.
         
brigs, December 15, 2011 12:43:23 PM CET
kayser, thanks for the credits. legion, i didn't bother you with the screen grabs 'cause i went for a different thing. also, can someone put the post as first until the voting closes? thanks everyone, cheers
         
najork, December 15, 2011 5:07:39 PM CET
I dig the Voltron view. Do you suppose that gives the Black Lion a psychological advantage, or disadvantage?
         
captainmarc22, December 15, 2011 6:12:59 PM CET
Yawn, a few days in and people are already vote stuffing.

Most Fun video - 32 votes.
Best Animated - 28 votes
Best Performance - 27 votes
Best Narrative - 24 votes
Best Hip Hop - 22 votes
Best Choreography - 23 votes
Best Art Direction - 21 votes
Best Editing - 20 votes
Best Cinematography - 20 votes
Best Visual Effects - 23 votes
Best Commissioning Artist - 21 votes
Best New Director - 21 votes
Best Director - 22 votes
Video of the Year - 25 votes.

Shouldn't every category have roughly the same amount of votes? Or rather, a category like "Video of the Year" have more votes than "Most Fun" ?
         
najork, December 15, 2011 6:19:40 PM CET
captainmarc22, I think that's just people starting to fill it out and then thinking they'll get back to it later (which is what i did).
         
progosk, December 15, 2011 7:02:20 PM CET
stuffs usually spike pretty obviously; and some categories always get fewer votes. one thing tho: til the 24th is awful long, and iirc usually after 3 or 4 days things start to go off...

also: coudal'd.


         
brigs, December 15, 2011 7:11:00 PM CET
@ prog, at least they call it "a nice recap"…
i can change the closing date. 20th sounds better?
@ najork, as i was doing the pics i though the same, but i just wanted them to be tidier than before…
         
budget, December 15, 2011 7:39:56 PM CET
this is really great guys. awesome work everyone.
         
pancho, December 15, 2011 7:42:26 PM CET
Go montecrossa hahaha!
         
robodrug, December 16, 2011 1:22:17 AM CET
^ Chuh! How did auld Monte get in there?
         
my name is legion, December 16, 2011 12:52:57 PM CET
i nominated him
marc22 too
he had so many videos out this year, it felt like the right thing to do
         
progosk, December 16, 2011 5:50:00 PM CET
brigs: 20th, sure, or whatever you feel is right.
         
brigs, December 16, 2011 6:12:01 PM CET
^ done. changed it to the 19th. the weekend+monday and it's over.
         
progosk, December 18, 2011 10:40:23 AM CET
morning news'd
         
mingolingojingo, December 18, 2011 1:26:04 PM CET
An average of 30 people voting...
Mathematically, in the community of human beings having a say on music video, are Antvillers a more relevant community than KKK buddhists second world war South African vets ?
         
TheMegaforce, December 18, 2011 5:46:46 PM CET
Is Tropical - The Greeks was edited by us (MEGAFORCE)
MEGACHEERS antvillers!
         
progosk, December 18, 2011 7:52:56 PM CET
mingo: antville is what it is - and as you know quantity ≠ quality.

the local share of active to passive users is pretty similar to other topical sites (working out roughly to 1% [citation needed]); nobody's run the stats of late, but i think the 'ville still averages about 5000 unique visits per day.

         
my name is legion, December 18, 2011 11:11:22 PM CET

         
almotasim, December 19, 2011 1:10:20 PM CET
I also nominated Monte. He's fucking awesome. :-)
         
madelineK, December 19, 2011 2:10:13 PM CET
Best Director category sounds rather fishy to me since last night.
         
progosk, December 19, 2011 4:05:18 PM CET
stuffery ahoi: shoes and spoek...
         
brigs, December 19, 2011 4:35:05 PM CET
also justice "civilization" is getting a lot of votes in the final hours…
         
mingolingojingo, December 19, 2011 5:17:38 PM CET
Best Director is obviously fishy.
         
progosk, December 19, 2011 5:22:41 PM CET
whatsay brigs, shut'er down?
         
brigs, December 19, 2011 6:03:44 PM CET
^ yeah ok gettin' to it
         
my name is legion, December 19, 2011 6:06:38 PM CET
progosk, shut it.

the spoek mathambo peeps are not begging for votes, they are just informing people that they have been nominated and are inviting them to vote. besides, they are doing antville a favour by mentioning it on their blog.

is dis a bad thing? dont think so.

         
brigs, December 19, 2011 6:09:45 PM CET
Polls are officially closed! Thanks everyone.
