They've been back burnered for now since we get so few creative entries and a lot of rushed "get as many in as possible" entries that we notice that quality of video actually suffers when we run a contest as opposed to when we don't. Sucks, I know. Hopefully we'll come up with a way to run more contests and maintain video quality soon!
Yes, without trying to sound negative on anyone's video reviews, I can see how that would become a problem. Maybe instead of announcing when the submission time frame will be (ex: submit between 8/25 and 9/10) perhaps the list of entries could be randomly compiled from a passed period of two or three weeks? As in, just announce "hey all, we're taking all video submissions from the past two weeks" and do it that way? Kind of a surprise rumble. Not knowing when the rumble would be might motivate people to consistently submit good reviews, just in case?
I don't know if that even makes sense, just a thought. I also figured since the video review program has gotten so enormous (lots of reviewers!) that it might just be hard to even compile a list of all the videos submitted in a two week period, let alone for the voters to watch and rate them all.
But yes, I look forward to seeing video rumbles emerge sooner or later in some form. I know EF has a lot going on and keeping yet another contest up and running isn't necessarily a priority right now. Thanks for the response, Carrie Ann
