Ladies & Gents, we have to delay the announcement of the ANCESTOR User-Generated Video Contest finalists. ARealGirl and I took the view-count totals right at the contest deadline. We know who the top-5 were. However, there does appear to be some views that need verifying. Some of the view counts deviate greatly from the overall patterns.
We apologize to the contestants for the delay, but we want to make sure that the views were valid, were made by real people. If someone was gaming the system by using bot-nets or other view-count inflators, than that is unfair to the people who worked very hard to pimp their video to friends, family, or who found cool places to post it where people would watch.
We don't have a specific date when we will announce the finalists. Please be patient, this isn't a simple black-and-white issue (see what I did there? "Black-and-white?" In relation to an ANCESTOR thing? Boom!).
