This isn't really related to elements, but I wish we could get rid of the "you can't upload until the national finalists are announced" rule. I get why it's there, but it suuuuuch a long time to wait when every video in a small city is a finalist so you have to wait for the announcement, and then no Taranaki films end up in the screening room because everyone's forgotten about it by the time they're allowed to upload.
I think everyone should be able to upload their films after their city final has happened. By then, if there's been heats and a final, or just a sold out final like Taranaki and BOP had, then a couple of hundred people have seen the film already anyway. Ones in the screening room at the moment that were some of the first to go in there (DQs and early city final announcements) have had 100, maybe a couple of hundred views some of the more talked about ones. If they all got uploaded around now at the same time, after the city finals instead of several weeks from now and several weeks ago, I think it would concentrate the screening room and review giving vibe a bit more and they would have only a handful of extra views each really. Then you just temporarily get the national finalists to take their videos down/make them private once they're announced until after the final.
Oh on the reviews note, I love seeing that some of the other city managers are reviewing films... I reckon it would be good to have the reviews thing pushed strongly in general with the competition. I reckon it's a pretty key aspect of the increase in the quality of films over time for those who read them. I've been pushing for weeks to encourage people to sign up for reviews site in prep for our screening last night, and to write some reviews, but there's always only a handful of folks who do anyway, lol.
