I think it would make sense for people to choose their top 10, or even top 5 films in each category.

The other thing that forcing all judges to rank every single film does is puts one film in last place. I think it’s a good idea to avoid that, because after the top 10 or so films there’s really no point in continuing to rank them.

I was going to mention that I didnt like our individual votes being made public after the 10 Brick Contest.

The cumulative scores should be enough.

I had no plans on releasing pesonal ballots.

My problem with making a list of nominees is that it doesn’t seem true to the original intentions of the contest, which was to have extremely fair and well balanced judging. Nominating films would result in films being picked that are good by normal brickfilms standards. This doesn’t seem tru to the original intentions of the judging method, which were meant to give anyone who does decently in all categories a shot at winning.

The other thing I can do is delay the awards chat to give more time, but it would probably have to be a weekday, or not have the date announced until very close to it. I don’t have another saturday that I can make for sure until october.

Quigibo and I, as well as some other people, still need to know whether we get two votes or one joint vote.

I agree with Rev that we should only need maybe a top ten or so films on the list. Not to be insulting, but it seems to me that a few films stood out above the rest, and some of the films that I would rank near the end of the list seemed about equal in quality, or lack thereof.

If you worked on a joint entry, you can only have one ballot. I don’t want people submitting ballots for everyone who worked on their film. I have my work cut out for me as it is.

You don’t need to make a list of nominees, just let the voters pick the top 10 that they think exceed in each category, and put them on thier ballot. And I don’t think you need to delay the awards chat, two weeks is more than enough I would think, especially if you shorten the ballot to only contain the top 10.

I’d like to see you watch and judge 22 films in 10 minutes.

At the least I’d say list the best 15 films, with the inherent assumption that the other ones just suck.

It isn’t an assumption if it’s blatantly obvious ;)

Since there are so many entries, it may make sense to have everyone choose their favorite without even ranking them. They can just make a list that’s in no particular order. Every time a film ends up on someone’s list, it gets a point. This is how I handle nominations for the contests and it works very well. It’s an easier way than trying to watch 22 films and come up with some ranking for them.

You do realise that there is going to be controversy. According to these voting rules, you flat out lied to the disqualified contestants in the ’24 hour animation contest‘ thread.

I say stick to what you said, let them be ranked, they just can’t win prizes.

Also, I say at least do top 15. Make it easier on the judges.

RevMen, sometimes it can also be hard to choose a favorite, too. Especially if your not judging anything perticular. I know some made me laugh more than others but some had better production values, it kind of makes it hard to decide on one film.

You’ve made your point, the voting guidelines have been changed to only include your top ten in every category. Anyone who has allready submitted a ballot: I will take the top ten films in each category and change the point values to follow the current system.

I wouldn’t say I “flat out lied” to the disqualified contestants. At the time, I was expecting about 15 entries, so I thought that it wouldn’t hurt anything to include the disqualified entries. I wanted to be nice to the people who were disqualified, and i was only expecting a few disqualifications. The contest was far more sucessful than I’d ever though, and there was also a larger number of disqualifications than I’d anticipated. Instead of the 15 entries I’d originally anticipated there would now be thirty plus if I let in all of the disqualified contestants. And if I let in some, I’d get people who were late begging to be ranked, and the whol thing would be a mess.

With the new voting guidelines, allowing disqualified entries to be ranked wouldn’t work, so I’m going to have to not allow them.
