    We are happy to announce that viewing and rating for Villain Fest 2011 is now open.

    As in previous fests you have the choice of downloading an individual entry, viewing the entry online, or downloading zip archives of the entries. It is important to note that the online viewing system is still under major development, so it is not a completely seamless solution. We make it available because we want to continue to improve the experience, but some of the entries may have trouble playing in the viewer. We make it easy to download the entry so it will always be possible to see every entry.


    Rating
    Though no changes have been made to the rating system from previous fests, here is a quick reminder of the system for those that have not been involved in a fest previously or need a refresher.

    We allow everyone to rate entries, regardless of their post count. However, it is important to note that finalists are only determined based upon the ratings of those who have 50 posts and/or have entered a film in the fest. The other ratings are used for audience choice decisions.

    When you click the stars to rate an entry, you are not ranking the specific film against the other entries. Instead you are giving that film its own rating from 1 to 10 where 1 means that this is the worst this film could ever be and 10 means this is the best this film could possibly be. You are rating the film on its own merit, not against any other film.

    Your rating is just that, a rating, not a ranking.


    REMINDER: If you are a registered dvxuser member, be sure to use those credentials when logging into dvxfest, prior to rating the films.

    Ballot Stuffing
    We keep track of each individual rating, which film was rated, who rated it and what rating they gave. And we are able to, and do, look at trends in the rating.

    In the past we have seen people try to sway the results by rating the films they were involved in a 10 and everything else a 1. This is a waste of time as the system is designed on an average rating which prevents these individual ratings from having major impact on the overall average. You do everyone a better service by giving a fair and honest appraisal of each entry, or if you don't want to do that, then don't rate.

    Unfair rating trends such as this will be disqualified from the overall count, so don't waste your or our time.

    Can I change my rating?
    Until viewing closes, the system allows you to alter your rating. Sometimes you feel a particular way about a film and give a rating, but after further reflection or subsequent viewings you realize the rating does not accurately reflect your view of the film. In this case, simply reclick the stars to mark the revised value.

    Problems viewing or rating
    If you run into any issues with either the viewing or the rating portions of the system, please note the problem in the provided Technical Issues thread. This will be the only place we will monitor for problems with the system:

    And finally ... Have Fun!

    I can't view them and DVX gives me "download error" when trying to download. Do I need to have "flowplayer" downloaded perhaps - I'm working off Mac? Thanks
