Poll - your vote needed

Should DVinfo moderators (obviously not the ones judging) be allowed to compete, not just enter?

Yes or no.

Feel free to e-mail me at thedvchallenge@hotmail.com to place your vote.

Dylan, I can't believe you are asking such a question. But since you now have a committee and a constitution that oversees the rules that govern the contests, I understand the motivation.

Open to all. Including moderators.

Judges not included.

Perhaps the entrants can submit using a numeric identifier that keeps the big dogs anonymous.

I'm not sure that I understand this last post, does he want you in or out, but I say bring it on! I enter this and compete to learn, and you guys are some of the best to learn from. No offense Dylan, but you are not Steven Spielberg, and even if you were I don't care, enter!!!!!!!

You have used five judges in the last two contests, and I don't think there will be a bias in that.

Come-on, all enter. Express yourselves!

Mike

I think it's a great idea, Dylan. If the whole point of this is for people to get out and shoot, then the more the better.
I don't care about anonymity.
I don't even care about winning. As soon as you hit the lights, roll tape and say action you've already won something better than any prize package, or award.

I don't even care if the judges compete. I'm sure some sort of alternate judging system could be worked out wherein this could be made to work.

More entrants, more films, more fun.

I'm only taking a public opinion poll in case someone had some fair objections to the DVinfo mods competing. The judges of course can not compete.... Not until Canon starts putting up XL2's as prizes. :)

So far, including the emails I got, it looks like everyone wants a chance to take a crack at the DVinfo mods on the field of battle...

Why do I see a Mods vs. Members battle in the future?

Dylan,
I think that's a great idea, but you'll then have to include Member (non-Moderator) judges to maintain balance and objectivity. Right?

I agree

I'm new here but agree that the moderators should be able to compete. I think it is a great idea and echo the sentiments already expressed that this is a learning experience.

The "DV Challenge", as the name implies should be just that...a great challenge.

Best wishes!
Bradley

I think this is already been decided - but I am definitely in favore of universal eligibility. I even think Judges should enter - and then be subject to a popular vote from all non judge participants. There could be a catagory: "best judge".

(But I am assuming that it is enough work just judging something like this, that the judges wouldn't be interested or have the time to do both. - unless they have no real lives, that is)

I also think that everyone should be able to enter. After all, we were even trying to find a way to get Ron Howard, or other pros to enter so why not moderators. And, why not judges? I, for one, would not question their integrity.

I don't see an issue with anyone entering except the judges. Other moderators, don't see any reason not to let them have a crack at it. It's not like all the moderators ever even met each other really.

And Michael Gibbons, I wonder how many folks know that movie? One of my favorites.

What movie is this one from... "Snake Pliskin, I thought you were dead."

The character name's a give away.

Dylan, get someone else to judge for you this round and join the fray.

Yes, non-judging moderators should be allowed to compete.

Rob and I did enter films in the last one!


Ok, looks like it is settled, moderators are in...

Sean, maybe sometime in the future I will compete under a pseudonym.
