HITS Community, Tally Hall lovers, etc.... I am confused!
There are a number of fan-made music videos already out there. There are tons of brilliant minds out there, too.

So where are all the entries? The person who created the video of the guy shaving to Two Wuv took the time to post that video as a video response to like 5 of my videos, but didn't enter it into the contest. It looks like I'll have to advertise it more on Tally Hall's myspace, facebook, etc... which I hate doing. But I have a feeling this is simply due to people not knowing how much HITS has to offer and therefore, not knowing about the contest.

I'd like to enter, but have ABSOLUTELY no means of making one. I don't even have a camera capable of video, nor do I have any video editor software to make a powerpoint presentation.
From Chatparty!!!:

ChatParty!!!]: MrMoon has entered at 8:38 pm
[DoctorThunder] 8:38 pm: OH NOES
    [MrMoon] 8:38 pm: Yeah that's right.
[charissa] 8:38 pm: HE'S BACK
[cozbaldwin] 8:38 pm: thats so funny
    [MrMoon] 8:38 pm: I am so delighted that you are amused, cozbaldwin.

I would have really liked to make one, but since its the first month of school, I've been pretty busy.

Maybe possibly there could be an extension?

(Not for me, but since it seems there hasn't been all that much response yet)

Or maybe people are just planning on finishing it by the end of September, and you'll get them all then

We have a couple entries so far including one that just came in.
Take a peek. Voting will begin once the deadline is past.... a poll will be added here.

BY THE WAY............
2 entries so far is kinda lame, in terms of the actual amount of entries. If anyone out there is in need of another month, please state your needs here. If there's a number of people who would be able to participate if only they had another month to do it, I will extend the deadline. kthxbye.

Here it is, the winning video:





Now, we learned it's not ok to create multiple accounts to push up the vote-count for someone.
But at least one person, it appears, didn't even vote for themselves! So... kinda strange behavior with this little contest. I'd love to do more of these, but I'm so sure that'll happen. Thanks to those who participated and to those who voted.

*dances down*

Aaaww, yeah! And I didn't even vote for myself, either! *BOOyah!*

I'm going to enjoy finding some wonderful place to put that poster and bask in its glory and wonder... *sighs in contentment* Thank you VERY much, everybod'eh, and thank you, Coz, for extending the deadline. *whew*. :D

-- So, in order to acquire the prize, what do you need? Like, Paypal account or some'fin? ... as much personal information as you stuff into your suitcase and use against me? ... *looks around*... To get a poster, I may or may not be willing to give out all the info I can recall in a single sitting!

Thank you very much. :) I tried my very best on that video! -- However, I really wish I hadn't had my external HD blown up right before this contest started... I really wanted to finish Ruler for this contest, as something new. However, looks as though I'm not getting those files back for a couple of years. Oh, well, at least I know they're safe, if only a little bit corrupted.

I was going to say this counts as "bumping" a thread, but it's still at the very top of the first page, so, uh...

Well, anyway, as stated here, my "external HD [blew] up" right around the time of this contest, right while I was in the middle of a really big Ruler of Everything lipsync video. Just wanted to say, as a fun little note, that I'm finally getting that drive repaired professionally. Because, as everyone knows, I really hate losing things. *walks away*

Hahaha, no one will see this but me. But thanks for the update! I held on to a couple drives that went kaput for a few years. Got impatient and tried repairing them myself. I either screwed it up, or the data was really lost from the get-go because there was nothing on them. I am still sad about it. Best of luck to you!
