Default Re: Important Notice Regarding Youtube Contest Videos

I have been against this contest from the beginning. I am not happy that Ganz is encouraging our kids to go to sites that have no sensor. YouTube is a HORRIBLE site for kids and sadly not all parents know what there kids are looking at on the internet. Within a couple of clicks on YouTube you can be at an xrated location. Not only that the comments alone on good videos are xrated sometimes. I don't want to have to explain to my young neighbor what it is that she is viewing or reading. I wish Ganz would have thought about this before tossing out such a great prize on YouTube.

I pray that the kids that are making the videos are having parental help and not puting their faces nor personal information on the videos.

My other issue is that there are some GREAT videos that took a great deal of time. It is sad that people will not be able to see them. I personally was torn because I didn't want to contribute by watching the videos, yet I wanted to see the creativity I know members on WI have.

I am an adult with no children of my own and I will not be participating in the contest as my personal protest.

For those kids making videos: Do it with your parents and make sure that you are safe at all times. Good luck to everyone that entered.

I actually find I'm kind of annoyed with Ganz at the moment...They are basing this contest on view count-but they are promoting certain videos on their FRONT PAGE! Is that fair at all? I wouldn't mind so much if they were basing it on "content" and not views, but every video they have promoted has a substantially higher view count and my poor kids are getting very discouraged...

Like I said earlier, I was against this thing-then kind of thought it was a great time for a bonding experience (if the parent was involved as they should be) but now I'm just annoyed...At least we had fun making it-and we'll have a great dvd to remember the "good old daykinz" haha!

I TOTALLY agree with you. I noticed that the same ones that were added at the same time do not have as many votes. It isn't because people are not watching them, it is because Ganz is promoting specific ones.

I am not surprised they wouldn't be fair, it is Ganz afterall.

It was a lot of fun making the video, and I would like to think I and the other WI members have a good chance of winning. But I also am concerned about the way Ganz seems to be promoting certain videos. Oh well!

In the meantime -- I created animations -- not linked to youtube at all -- for the viewing pleasure of those who want to see tiny silent versions of the videos a few of us have created. Not the full effect, but if you prefer not to go to youtube you can at least get an idea of what we put together.

You can see them on this thread:

No, I am sorry - no links to YouTube can be sent even by PM. If you go to the thread (link from my siggie) you can see short animations of what our entries look like and also pictures which will help you identify them on youtube.

Thanks so much for your interest!
