    the fact that i didn't sign up should be proof of how little this has to do with my own interest in participating and how much it has to do with the general interest of the tournament but whatever. I could care less about if i get to submit in the way that i want to, what's important is haven't semi reasonable rules. Perhaps there would have been more sign ups if that were the case.

    you're not certain of that and can't be, whereas i actually am certain of the opposite, and while i'm not gonna speak for other people i can name at least two who either aren't going to participate at all because taking hours to film a drawing is inconvenient, or want be able to participate in a fashion that shows their talents. And if you count me as one person, that makes 3 who are either not gonna participate or are a lot less likely to because of the rules. You can cut the participation rate in half if you want, but it doesn't really benefit anyone here.

    There's a reason why, people value drawings over watching people draw, people don't study art to get good at performing drawings, but to create good works. the final work is a lot more entertaining, people didn't pay to watch the mona lisa get done, they payed for mona-chan. Art shows, key word here is shows, showcase art works not people drawing. And again you're making this more about me than it is, i even read/perform poems live, but that's really besides the point. The point is that reading something doesn't show case the talent in question, you can read a poem that's not yours or have someone else read a poem you wrote. The poem itself is the showcase of the work and unless it was written for spoke word a reading of it is simply inadequate. And i'm not interested in a work around about this, what i'm interested in is changing rules that are gonna stifle the competition both in quality/variety and in quantity. There's a reason this contest so far is mostly featuring singing, because many of the other talents are marginalized by it, not because singing is the only talent on tmf.

    I'm not getting with the program, i'm changing the program and that's all there is to it here, you don't have to agree it's not like you have a monopoly on talent shows here, nor on how they're run, with this kind of thing the host is in all senses expendable and replaceable.

    Also, looking at a drawing is more of a show than watchhing it get drawn over the course of ours, sped up or not.

    there are contest of every kind, doesn't excuse excluding a talent. And no matter how much you wanna pretend that you're not doing that, by making some submissions impractical you're excluding them.

    rules are meant to help not hinder, and are often changed when they do the latter. Just saying that there are people who are being excluded from this contest and you are makinig the assumption that it's not the case, I can name atleast equal to the amount that is already participating that are likely not due to how inconvenient the rules are. Your vision in this case is simply flawed.

    talent = videos apparently, that doesn't make any sense. I didn't demand for it to be a writing contest, but an actual talent contest as in a contest where talents are showcased. Does it make this a singing contest just because singing is possible? so why even bring up that this isn't a writing contest.

    Look, you can think that this is about me alone, or that i'm the only person who thinks that rule is stupid, but that's your faulty assumption. It really would only bring benefit to make a more inclusive tournament but whatever. I just don't see the need to be stubborn about changing this, or why you're assuming i'm the only one with something to gain from this. Even if that were the only reason why i brought this up to you that still wouldn't be the case, you should also realize that not everyone that thinks like this is gonna actually bring it up, that's just how some people are.

    it's not about if i want to read a poem, it's about the rules being problematic. And you can create a format that's inclusive of something that isn't audio or video. May as well say that you can't have a format that allows both audio and video seeing hwo they're different mediums. Or that you can't judge both singing and dancing because one is visual and the other is audio. I don't really care about if i can participate it was a whimsical decision, but i do have p strong disagreements with that rule.

    When i say i'm boycotting i don't mean i'm excluding myself, i meant that i'm going to exclude the contest, viva la revolution nika-chan

    i'm boycotting, no reason why this needs to be tmf's got talent instead of a legit talent contest that's inclusive of all talents in a convenient matter. What's the point of calling it a talent show when it already culls the majority of possible talents. A sped up video of someone drawing has no value, either in the context of a talent show like britain's got talent or in the context of a forum contest where it would just be easier for everyone to submit the drawing. Some drawings take months weeks etc. to make, same with writings, or even composing a song if the composing aspect were the talent.

    if we had a singing contest would that be a good reason to create a talent contest that for example, didn't allow audio and instead required you just submit song lyrics and notes?

    but the talent isn't reading, it's writing

    if the only submissions are singing and dancing isn't it more like a singing/dancing contest

    why does show have to be so literal, i mean in that case, can't you show a poem. Also, many poems won't show their quality through reading aloud in the same way as they would if everyone was forced to read the actual poem themselves. You won't notice the changes in meter and form, the same way that you would, sure you'd hear it but its not the same, and you can't pay close detail to the nuances.

    Also what about stuff like drawings, if it takes 10 hours to draw a really high quality picture, would it really make sense to send a video? And the list goes on, most talents aren't really performance talents, so doesn't making it entirely performance base just end up excluding a large variety of talents and narrowing it down to just a few things that are practical within this setup?

    hey nika, why does the talent thingie have to be a video or audio file. what about talents that doesn't work for, like if i had a friend that wanted to submit a poem.
