Never mind the fact that (and Im just guessing here) that there are no less than 20 different videos from long time board members and on NO occasion have I seen anyone stumping for likes.(which I have been gladly doing without being asked, because all these guys are brothers in arms as far as IM concerned)...... And the kicker here is that Cubensis is a GREAT band!!! They dont need to be stumping this. I wonder how many more message boards got signed up for to ask for votes, if you obviously came here to create an account.
the other beautiful thing about this is that bands are going to other bands videos and clicking dislike across the board just to bring ratings down. You knew as soon as they announced this thing that it was going to be typical internet tomfoolery.
I noticed that before February first pretty much all the videos I watched tagged in this project had some likes but nobody had any dislikes. Then as soon as some videos got posted on dead.net the visible ones started getting hit with dislikes really quick. And then as soon as a video drops off and one takes it's place the new video starts getting tagged with dislikes and the other isnt touched anymore. So that is not people judging the merit of the video, that is haters being haters. it is OK not to like something because it's not your taste, tag away! But to dislike as a manner of competition is just so stupid.
The person who handles my bands facebook and twitter accounts put a post up a couple weeks ago stumping for this thing and I told him to stop. This shouldnt be a contest, it was supposed to be a fun way to get a bunch of different takes on material we all know and love. The other thing I hate is wading though 35 submissions from the same band. Tag one vid and be done with it.
Cubensis dude: sorry, this isnt really meant at you personally or your band , it just became my tirade platform

Part of me agrees with you guys except if that's how the contest works and the leaders are doing it what else are you supposed to do ?? Shit am I talking about steroids ?? I do agree with you that it is lame that they signed up for this board just to stump I have not done that I am a member here for over a year and post all the time and know that other members here have videos in the contest too Stella Blues Band for one. I posted here and at the Philzone where I have belonged for a while and post all the time and see nothing wrong with that if that is how the contest works we should all be posting our vids here and liking each others that's what they are telling us to do "Check out the videos that are burning up the Dead Covers Project charts as "Top Rated." Help your favorites rise to the top of the heap by "Liking" them."
