The process was really smooth, the organisers were really reactive to
the small questions I had since it was my first time entering and
friendly as well, so thank you for all your help!
SoulRVS: I really liked the voting system that puts the editor first.
Sunlight: it was fun to see other ppls vids
i like that here we can watch several videos from everyhere, and also
the most thing that i like is that there is not limite for finalist,
that means if you do something good you will be in the final.
Tiny Poet: It's a way to conmunicate with the editors in the world, I think it prove me a lot.
TritioAFB: -Like in other years, meeting new people.
-The suggestion about the YouTube restrictions was considered, it was time for a change, since changes are good.
TsukiBito: The earnest attitude in every amvers.In china people usually just talk about games
I like how we can compete with many different people from different
places, to see the various editing style everyone has, and to see the
new AMVs made. :D
xDeuz: Contest's administration, it delights us with this contest every year.
xDieguitoAMV: The page and the way the videos are premiered on it
Xilence: We like the competetive challenge against other talented AMV editors.
WHAT DID YOU DISLIKE THE MOST IN OUR CONTEST?
AiLioNs: In the same way I like the amount of people against whom I participate, I do not like the amount of low quality videos.
AlchemistEskimo & itsAvient: The secondary finals nomination (7 finalists)
AMV Strat: I understand that participants can't see the score/rating, but the person who has made the video should see it at least.
andrewbee: Politics and the constant changes to Deadlines/Schedules
Everyone's replying in russian, site's in russian by default, and every
time i enter a part of the site, main meny turns to russian again. It's
an international contest guys, everybody know about Akross these
AntaresHeart07: Deadline extention. System of voting: you should make a jury and not let participants vote.
I didn't dislike anything really. Maybe the extension of the deadline
was a bit troublesome for me because I had already made plans which
didn't allow me to able to edit anymore past the original deadline as I
had planned a holiday. But that isn't the contest's fault so I do not
mind. I think it was done very well and professionally :)
Domius: the deadlines changed
Fobos: Не понравилась некоторая неадекватная часть аудитории, но это мелочи.)
JSK: This year felt that different that last year's contest.
wish to have a higher english level to really explain what I felt, some
experienced author's videos were different than the things you usually
expect from them, it is almost dissapointing. I know it isn't your
fault, but I just wanted to express it.
John: Nothing in particular.
JustRukia: Вымирание отечественных авторов.
KxS & MDL: The deadlines for adding infos and uploading were confusing at the end.
the trend to send mostly crossover and effect heavy AMVs to the
contest, and the tendency of some of the site's viewer's to only value
effects and not concepts
machina21: Not being able to understand Russian but that's my fault.
Magicflier: The comment section? lol.
mastamind: Not enough new videos every day.
MrGafudo: All the comments should be on english
MycathatesyouAMV: Voting categories could have been better.
Ryuu-Dono: Time available to submit videos was too long
SachaValentine: The decisive voting, which is a little bit a popularity contest.
I understand that this is a Russian contest, however AMV authors come
from every country and the most enjoyable part of participating is
getting feedback on the videos. We receive a majority of comments in
Russian, which we thankfully understand thanks to Google translate but I
feel that we lose some of the meaning in the process and it would be
great if there was a little internationalisation effort on the part of
the community, but I guess this is not really in the hands of the
organisers :). But this is just a detail and the contest was amazing,
will definitely enter again next year!
SoulRVS: Nothing in particular.
i still do not know why i can not upload my AMV to another website, the
video that I did, MY AMV, MY effort, the video in wich I spent MY time,
well i think that you know i mean
Tiny Poet: Some comments are not really nice to the editors,whatever the work is good or not,we should respect the editors and encourage them.
TritioAFB: -You should consider changing your
team, Boss. This year it seemed like you were 'tired' since there were
delays at the exhibitions, errors at the preview (KxS/MDL case) that
could be perfectly detected at the technical check, bugs at the site,
just like if the whole contest was run by only one person.
-Also about moderators: This year it seemed like spam and offensive commentaries were permitted this year, do we have them?
-Lack of participation of the foreign editors this time.
-Also: What happened with the forum threads of every entry? the real discussion was there and not just in the commentary section
this year's akross con,there is no fantastic amv like Centurione -
Pandora , goЯz - Fracture , ONEWAYS - The Boy Who Murdered Love.(in my
I think AKROSS should attract more outstanding amvers to join in?
Probably the lack of news and updates. If a friend hadn't told me about
being a finalist (this is also my first year here, so I don't know how
everything works out yet), I would have missed over these final
questions. Sending a message to our email would help as not everyone can be on 24/7. Other than that, I have no problems with it.
At first it didn't drag my attention, I felt that that something was
missing in order to motivate me. At the end, my friends cheered me to
give it a try.
xDieguitoAMV: The "You are not allowed to
upload the video on the internet until one week after premiered" rule.
In my opinion that rule only perjudicates the author of the video and
has no sense because in that week the video will be in the internet
anyway and everybody is free of download it and upload it to the
internet without being the author.
Xilence: The russian/english change bug on your site :3
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE IN RULES
AND/OR ORDER OF OUR CONTEST TO MAKE IT BETTER?
AirShadowRasengan: Everything works fine.
AlchemistEskimo & itsAvient:
Only allow the akross jury to decide who is nominated afterwards. Make
the votes only for statistical data of who wants to be in the finals.
I think is better waiting until you have 15 videos in the contest and
then you can show 3 per day instead people who show his video at first
have more posibilities to be watched for all people. If you haven't
enough videos with this rythm, is better wait one day more and then show
3 videos more. Also, I would want that akross upload on Youtube the
finalist videos, because more people will can share his opinion.
andrewbee: Allow subtitles to be embedded in only Trailers!
Use the 3 slots available when posting new videos, that way every debut gets a fair share of exposure on the homepage.
AntaresHeart07: Nothing in particular.
DanParthenis: Nothing :)
Domius: The votes of the videos should be given by the gjudges not by users.
Fobos: Меня правила устраивают, главное, чтобы данный конкурс был в следующем году, после следующем и так далее.)
I don't like the work with pictures of drawings from like "pixiv" or
other people drawings. I suggest to forbidden use these categories
pictures in contest.(just my opinion)
Gidra: Хотелось бы что бы в итоговом списке финалистов работы можно было бы упорядочить по дате, а не по алфавиту.
JSK: Maybe more videos per day on the last stages of the contest.
John: Nothing in particular.
Thank you so much always for the great contest :)
JustRukia: Акросс и так сделал все, что быть лучшим.
KxS & MDL: Nothing. Thanks for the contest.
kireblue: The video length/ file size ratio should be increased for 720p and 1080p videos
чтобы не проводить голосование участников, так как приходится
пересматривать все клипы по новой, а это занимает много времени, можно
было бы просто автоматически отправлять голоса жюри в соответствии с
поставленной оценкой на клип. такой способ проводить как в общем
голосовании, так и в номинациях. если же оценка совпадает (к примеру: у 3
клипов стоит оценка в 10 баллов), то уже можно предложить выбор автору
из этих участников.
machina21: Nothing. Keep doing what you doing.
MrGafudo: I can't watch the puntuation until the end of the contest
MycathatesyouAMV: Being able to upload right when you premiere.
ONEWAYS: There is no need.Keep it up.
Ryuu-Dono: Have a fixed deadline that does not change
Shinfoxxy: I would split the categories Romance and Sentimental.
reckon that Sentimental refers more to Atsmospheric videos with a
strong harmony and mood creation whereas Romance is more geared towards
straightforward love stories. In the contest there were several videos
that were really good at romance, but not so much at mood and atmosphere
creation, and other videos for which it was the reverse, where the
atmosphere was setting them apart and unique but not necessarily with a
prominent romance component. So for me the two categories are really
distinct from one another, and it would maybe make more sense to split
SoulRVS: I would love to see some new category .
Sunlight: nothing everything is good!
TheCacoVenom: if can upload my video after the premiere everything would be nice
Tiny Poet: Nothing
Not really a change in the rules but more for a suggestion: The
creation of special events for AKROSS Con. Just like in 2009 with The
Gallery. In ZonaAMV for example we created The Interview, as a kind of
special interview to the finalists of the AKROSS Con since several of
the spanish-speakers want to meet them. Also contributes to bring people
from ZA to AKROSS since it's one of your sponsors.
else mentioned about the reduction of the finalists every year. Hmm it
could be though some years you will have to make tough decisions about
the final number of finalists at the end.
TsukiBito: Well,in akross con,Japanese style is not very welcoming.People seems tend to prefer the style of Russia or Europe
I believe the rules are easy to understand and set a clear definition
on what the contest wants, so I don't think it needs any changes.
xDeuz: Nothing, it is good as it already is.
xDieguitoAMV: Nothing, just the rule i mentioned before about the permission of upload the video.
