Featured video contest
« on: October 24, 2015, 08:51:44 PM »
As I mentioned in another topic we're going to do a featured video contest. This will be a monthly thing (assuming there's enough entries to keep it going)

Here's how it works:

You make a TM video. Sorry, I'm not interested in your Call of Duty clip collection. If you want to use a video from something like twitch, that's fine also. But upload it to youtube before you send it to me. The twitch player is laggy, not as well supported across browsers, and generally horrible.

You PM it to me. DO NOT POST IT IN THIS THREAD. If you post it in this thread I am going to disqualify you for not reading.


Send me only ONE video. So pick wisely. Sorry but I don't have the free time to sit around watching 18 hours of youtube videos.

Around a week before the start of each new month, I will post a topic for community voting.

Video with the highest amount of votes gets 5 points. Second place gets 4 points. Third place gets 3 points. Fourth gets 2 points. Fifth gets 1 point. Anything after that gets none.

Then there's the bob vote. Point values are the same as the ones listed above. I'll rank them in order of what I like best.

Highest total points wins.

In the event of a tie, I'll ask the moderating and testing teams for votes and that will be the final decision.


Contest begins right now. You have until the final week of November to send me your video.

Prizes: Forum Artist award. Featured on the Total Miner homepage for the month of December, and your video is posted on the TM facebook.


Also, before you think about trying to game the system. I already have that part figured out, and you're wasting you're time. So don't bother, cause it will most likely end up with you being disqualified.

I wonder if animation would be counted in that etc of yours.

I'm very interested in this,, however i currently have no way to make a video.
Would i be disqualified if i had another player record a short highlight reel of some of my best script works for submission?
(This wouldnt be any very great builds, but if you look at youtube, minecrafters love to see creative redstone builds, why not a showcase of impressive scripts?)

am i applicable as long as i follow the other guidelines?
That guy with dem scripts.

It can be whatever sort of video you guys want to make. I'm not going to put a ton of restrictions on that. Just as long as it's no more than PG-13 rated (this will be on the homepage after all.)

I don't mind if someone else does the actual recording. The person who submits it will be the one who wins the award though, so that there isn't any potential drama.

The points determine the winner. ie, if video A totals 7 points and video B totals 6 points, video A is the winner

Will there be a limit on how many submissions you will accept? I know one per person, but an overall cap on videos allowed?

I don't think that'll be necessary right now. People on the forums with cap cards are fairly limited. If it's an overwhelming number of entries then I might add one for the January contest, but for this particular one, no.
