We're always impressed by the amount of dedication and talent shown by our players, and user-created videos are just one more way you've found to wow us. This time, we're looking to spotlight a video that celebrates the DDO 3rd Anniversary! But with so many great video makers out there, we can't do it alone, so we'll need the help of the community!

Each week beginning Monday, March 2nd through March 23rd we'll be looking for nominations of DDO videos to spotlight in the Video Spotlight Nominations threads! We'll select a video each week as a candidate. Then in the final week, we'll face these videos off and let the community vote on which is their favorite DDO Anniversary video!

To nominate a video, post the link to the video in our nomination threads starting Monday, and we'll check it out (don't forget to include the credits)! We'll select our favorites each week, and in a final vote, the Community will help us to select which video to spotlight on DDO.com!

Entrants are encouraged to upload their videos to the DDO page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dungeons-Dragons-Online/22694160991) and share them with other DDO fans! Although videos hosted on YouTube or Google Video are also welcome, videos on Facebook will receive priority consideration.

We can't wait to see the great DDO Anniversary videos from our fans!

Nope, probably a pre-recorded message. If she were alive she could post the friday capstone or PrC preview.

True, but even there that could be pre-recorded, right?

To be sure she's alive, she should be quoting you and say "Oh, sorry. Doing that right now.":rolleyes:

Facebook? Really? I hope you guys are making some money off em or something.

Facebook is the devil. I do not have an account, I do not want an account.

Vast & Mysterious BETTER NOT BE SOMETHING RELATED TO FACEBOOK!

I could make better videos if I only had that first person view with my avatar drawn out... *nudge*

For the Stormreach Chronicle, anychance you could hit some of the devs with the question:
*What's the biggest bug you *hope* (no promises) to have fixed for Mod 9 or retrospectively - what's the biggest bug you've already beaten down in Mod 9?*


Fight the battle, win the war, and plant the flag for THE CUBE. ALL HAIL.

P.S: You might want to include a link or two to some of the guides on making videos in DDO.

This may be so, but all the best bands are affiliated with the Devil, so I joined for the music.:D

Should we assume that this contest is also only open to US residents?

You should not assume that, because this is a "spotlight", not a "contest". :D

Let's see what you have, "everybody".

Ye Gods!

Even if it's only forum recognition does this mean me and the other Canucks in this game actually have a chance to win something!?! Sweet.

I guess I'm going to have to learn how to capture a video clip now. :D

ooo do I sense a friendly competition between our resident video makers? :D Remember too that we're accepting previously made videos too, so your video doesn't need to be fresh from the oven to be a candidate! Nominations thread (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=174482) is now open too. Nominate yourself, or even another player's video that you think was really cool.

Does this mean that your videos are eligible still? There are some good ones in there.

Uuuuuh...you know, good question. I didn't think about that one.

Speaking of which... Is there any reason why you couldn't make new ones? (like on your own time, and not as a Turbine employee) I enjoyed a few of them quite a lot.

I've thought about it now and again, but lately time has been my enemy. But maybe one day I can get around to doing another one. In the meantime, I like to live through you all since there are so many good video makers among the community :D *pokes the nomination thread longingly*

You could still showcase them - screen goes wavy as Tolero has a "flashback" ....

I hate to say it, but you probably can't. Or at least you can win nothing at all really. Normally contests have an explicit statement where upon employees of said company are ineligible for participation.

HOWEVER, given the nature of it, I feel that the videos should be part of it, if for the history of the game at the very least even if you can't win anything.

It's not a contest though.. :)

Oh I definitely wouldn't let any of them be in the community voting rounds for sure, there's no question about that. Ultimately it's fun to reflect back on them anyway - a lot of players helped to make those :) and it's fun to see them in their cameo appearances.

Also have seen some confusion about what sort of "theme" the video can be for spotlight nomination. It can be anything that makes you think about the awesome times you've had in DDO over the past 3 years!

Tolero's videos are a key part of DDO's history, in my opinion. I'm sure they motivated many a video maker to get started, besides offering all sorts of good laughs for the community. They should totally be placed in the Facebook celebration!

And I think Clankenbeard and Lessah will need their own category! Speaking of which, when's the next video!?!?!?

Well, I did put up one of my old ones, but if I did something it would have to be new. :) Not sure I have the time though.

I am cooking something up now. I hope to crack the whip behind my editor... aka Clankenbeard... by this weekend.

I have tried three times now to upload my video onto the DDO Facebook page. It is really starting to irritate me. Twice the video ended up on MY facebook page. grrrrrrrrr
I am going to try ONE more time and then give up entirely! There, I said it. Damn you Facebook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe more frequent content releases would be a great way to repay the dedication shown by the subscribers. Eventually, even the most dedicated will reach the final straw.
