•   days until the Eurovision Song Contest Final in Rotterdam!

#50 Audio and video voting

  1. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    For the 50th milestone, you have the opportunity to announce your votes in audio or video again.

    It's compulsory; failure to do so will result in your exclusion from future editions. The format of the presentation is the same as Edition 25, so scores 1-7 will appear on the scoreboard together, followed by the 8 points, 10 points and 12 points (just like in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2006). You can take around 30 seconds to introduce yourself and thank the host, praise Juche etc etc, while the points 1-7 appear. Please then wait at least 8 seconds before announcing your 8 points. Then it's up to you how long to wait for the 10 and 12 (with a minimum delay of 5 seconds between each), if you wish to build suspense.

    Please upload your clip to any file hosting provider (if you use YouTube then you must make it as an unlisted file not public or private) and send the link to me. I must receive it by 25th November.

    Please send the links to the clips to me via private conversation or e-mail.

    wanted to bump this up to spur everyone to give his advice :D
    Moldijan will record a video ASAP

    I hadn't noticed this part before. I think it's a bit harsh. Some people may not feel comfortable to vote in audio or video, but, they may be coming to chat and be nice people. Should we exclude them just because they don't want to audio or video vote?
  6. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    Yes. If they can't spend a few minutes recording a clip for a special edition then it says a lot about how much they care. It's a contest between friends, if by now they still don't feel comfortable then it's a sad story.

    Janet, for once in your life please grow up and act your age or just leave for good.

    ✓V Sheepmark ( Scheeples ) - video voted in #25
    ✓A State of the Ark ( Stockholm calling ) - audio voted in #25
    ✓V Støkkanslåndet ( CTP ) - video voted in #25
    ✓V Technika ( dan ) - video voted in #25
    ✓V Villa Badia ( Nessie ) - already sent a video vote for #50
    ✓V Wodongaria ( Liam ) - video voted in #25

    So as you can see, all of those who have never provided a clip have said they will this time, and the others who already did in the past obviously can't feel uncomfortable as they did it before anyway. So any excuse is laziness, as there has been plenty of time to record one. If anyone needs a bit of extra time after Sunday, they can always ask.

    I've tagged all participants in this post so they'll get an alert about it.

    Thanks for the tag...
    I support jw's request and I understand it...since he has done a lot for us we shall/have to thank him in any way.
    Moldijan has recorded the video and it's ready to be submitted and goads the other to show themselves and praise the title and the meaning of edition 50:

    Celebrate The (Video)Sound Of Your Nation
  9. James ... and his things xD

    Tbh, i think this is a very childish, ungrateful and offensive reaction. I don't think it's necessary to behave like this, especially not in the period before most people spend time in making a video or a whole show. If i am somewhere where I don't want to be, I leave. Not that I want you to, but these kind of reactions are needless.

    Well, actually, Nessie, I shall find it quite difficult to record a video this time. I am going to try tomorrow, but if I can't get it done by then it is very doubtful I shall be able to do it by Monday.
  13. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.


    Sunday then. The difficulty is still the same.

    jw, in case she cannot make it, don't you have enough videos/audios from here to make a composition? (me, james and marcio ay ay ay felicidad ding dongs everywhere etc)

    We'll talk about it in chat :P
  17. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    You mean, give me more work because she can't be bothered? No thanks.

    Well, good job I got interrupted in mid post because I thought Nick had written this.

    However, I can now address this to both of you (Nick and James). I have, for quite some time, found both of you (and Luis) to be extremely offensive on occasions, but I am expected to put up with it.

    I am not somewhere I don't want to be, but I am somewhere where I am having my arm twisted all the time to enter the contest when often I would rather not. Many of you know how suspicious I am of people who come into chat and start asking about entering the contest within 10 minutes of being in here; by no means could I ever be accused (unlike many other people) of only coming because of the contest. I come because I like chatting to the people in here. The contest, as far as I am concerned, is an extra.

    I know how much work jw puts in and it is in no way a reflection on him. In fact, it is only because I know how much he puts in - not only to the contest itself but to the whole site - that I have continued to allow myself to be drawn into the contest.

    I would never do anything to jeopardise the future of the site and it was made clear at one point that, if the contest stopped (due to lack of participants) the contest site would close too, but even when "old" members came back into the contest, and therefore the numbers rose, it was still made clear that I was expected to continue to participate.

    I'm not saying I never want to enter it ever again, but I don't see why such a fuss is made about me not entering. Several people have missed contests and nothing is said, and then they are welcomed back. (Or maybe it is, and they are just better at standing up for themselves about not entering.)

    If I can make a video I will, but if I don't it is not because I have decided not to on purpose so I am disqualified. (And I am fairly sure that when jw first started this thread it didn't have the bit about disqualification, but said making a video was "strongly encouraged".)
  19. jw HI. I'M ADAM SCOTT.

    You will make one, end of.
