Besides, we all know this is a competition of popularity which means I have lost before it even started. I simply just don't know enough people to gather votes every day. There are good videos that will not make it through who are in the same position and it's a shame, that's why I'm voting for them as well. Anyone who deserved a vote got one from me, simple as that.


I don't know if you have lost already. Your video seems to get more attention then any of mine. You've probably come very close at the very least I think.

Osborne1992,

Oh, let me explain what I mean! Likes can be deceiving and the top 5 videos might not be what we expect at all. People like me, sometimes like a video but do not vote on it. Or they vote and like only once, but do not come back every day to vote. So the votes do not accumulate over the week.

This is what I think is the case for me. I'm just assuming of course and could be pleasantly surprised. I only have a few friends who have been voting daily, that is it, so the vote number total is small I think. If it is bigger, that would be from the RuneScape community in general and that would be amazing. Who knows?

No one can assume anything about any video based on anything at this point! lol I personally wish the 'likes' were hidden as well.

As a side note to you: I think you have two entries? Both are done well and 'liked' both, but I only placed a vote for your writing letter one. I absolutely LOVE when people are brave enough to expose themselves to the community as you have and be creative as you were, it's a good video and needs more attention. Bravo :)

Would be good if likes were hidden. I know I'm one of the people who, in the case of youtube videos, enjoy a video but do nothing but close and go away or rewatch. I rarely thumb up or favourite.
And I believe someone said "Woobox" Or whatever it is being used to show these videos, has a seperate system to YouTube, so like, you can have a video with 1k views on youtube, it could have more or less on woobox. Not sure though.

I have 3 entries. The first, my "nostalgic" letter, main reason for it was to just be a reminder of old fun times I had with friends, years ago. Second was the I guess.. "Epic" voiced one, third is in the style of an old timey infomercial.

Thank you all the same. It was the first thing I thought of as soon as I saw the contest, granted I somewhat feel I missed the point of it. Wish I had more time to work with though! 45 seconds is hard to do!
While it is brave to be revealed the community, the real trick is knowing what to do with it...
Yours and 3 or 4 others are the only real life entries that were done well in my opinion. There is one IRL video I can't see though so I have no judgement on it.

Firstly, if Jarkurs video was to be removed, it should have been removed long ago before the top 5 were even picked. I think it's unfair that once his video has made it into the top 5, it's all of a sudden not applying to the rules. That should have been picked up long ago. Once you have a space in the top 5, there shouldn't be any further deletion of videos because those 5 spots are locked in.


It was an unfortunate overlook in everyone's part. Jagex thought it was in the grey area and let it slide into the gallery and everyone has put a light on this a few days later. Also, we don't even know if he's T5 or not.

Secondly, Surely you guys could have been a bit lenient with the extra time he exceeded considering it was giving credit to those that helped him in the creation of the video. The credits in no way possible had enhanced the video in any way except to the players who were featured in it, who would have already been voting for the video anyway, obviously.


He should have been lenient to the rules and done something else about that. It wasn't just the credits that went OT, but it was the last 4/5 seconds of music ringing out on black screen that went OT also. Credits in a way unconsciously enhance videos in a way. What if you went to the movies and the trailers at the start removed all the credits at the end? It would be abrupt and wouldn't have a closure.

Poly said:
I think dismissing the points off his video was a bit too over mark. Especially considering that the video had already made the top 5. It's very discouraging when you go from having your video in the top 5 with the possibility of wining to having to re-submit your video with zero votes as well as taking the credit out to the people who helped right throughout the video.

Cheers, Poly :)


Wasn't just credits, also there is a vid description for it.

I think the Facebook 'likes' tell alot of about how popular a video is. For example, it's pretty easy to tell that The Realscaperz have secured a top 5 position with their 200 likes. But I guess the top 5 might just turn out very differently than what we had in mind, in the first place. I personally don't like the fact that you can see how many likes a vid has. It makes people, including me, think that they don't have a chance at top 5, when they see the likes on all the different videos.

Well I was hoping that maybe with the update, we'd also get some news on the contest but nevermind. Will we be finding out the top 5 today? And will any more questions be answered?
I'd still like an answer for the categories existing this year and if all entries are put into these or if that's what the purpose of the top 5 is.

Just for reference - the winner will be announced (along with the other finalists) in a newspost this week.

Good luck everyone, and thank you for giving us an exceptionally hard choice to make with the quality of all the entries.

I'm locking this thread now, and will hop on the thread attached to the newspost in the coming days.
