    I signed up with gmail and got the contest registration info without issue. But I think I'm just lucky. I can be that guy and question if you've checked your spam folder tho.

    Alright, so here is the deal...

    I usually keep the site open a bit over the deadline to ensure everything gets processed. SO, I will keep the Entries open till Saturday, Feb 18, 11:59 PM (MST) If something happens to come in up to then I'll accept it into the contest.. Is this an tiny extension? sort of..

    But I would greatly appreciate for those who are planning to submit, please submit it as soon as you are able to as this will greatly help us to try and keep up.

    ALSO, please be patient with us in getting back to everyone with any issues, we are working on trying to keep up with the last minute floods but we all do still have paying jobs to go to so limited time... If there is any issues with your entry, we will try to give some time for any fixes (if they are possible), but the closer we get to the deadline, the less time we can offer after it.

    I do want to thank everyone who has so far entered, the AMV contest at SakuraCon is a very popular event and with everyone's help we want it to continue to be..

    Lastly, since it's SakuraCon's 20th Anniversary, we have some stuff we will be doing in the AMV room for it which includes something to do with past AMV Contests! More on that in a bit.. So if you were planning to attend, this is the year to come [​IMG]

    Gmail should not be a issue (span filter maybe?)... Again, if anyone has not gotten a response, let me know and I'll send it to you right away... We are going to overhaul the entire system for next year to get rid of this issue hopefully (crosses fingers and toes

    With full intention of playing the devil's advocate, being a contest coordinator myself, if you have finished entries to submit SEND THEM NOW doggonit. Commit to your entry now and don't wait til the last minute like a prick. It only adds stress to the coordinators.
