I have a bit of a qualm with the movie management page, and I thought I'd pitch my idea here and get the input and criticism of my FXhome peers.

Recently, I've submitted a movie to FXhome, and it was rejected for whatever reason. Really, I have no idea because all there is to guide me is an informative red box that says "rejected." That helps a lot. Really, it does. Actually, it doesn't. That... was.... sarcasm.

I think it would be helpful for the FXhome management to approve a revision of the "Movie Management" page for users so as to inform them why their movie was rejected. Right now, I have no idea why my movie was rejected, and all I have to go by in order to remedy this is the "Cinema Submission How-To" guide.

Cinema Submission How-To Guide wrote:

Requirements

There are a few rules to remember:

• At least one FXhome product must have been used during the making of the movie.
• The movie must be hosted on a permanent website that supports remote linking.
• By submitting a movie you acknowledge that all legal aspects relating to the movie have been addressed and cleared, and that you accept full responsibility for the content of the movie.
• FXhome.com is unable to accept films of an explicit sexual nature.
• FXhome.com can refuse to showcase a movie in the cinema and can also remove a movie without notice from the cinema, with no obligation to provide an explanation.
• Your movie must also conform to the rules of the program licence agreement. Particularly the part that requires an FXhome credit to be added to your movie (unless you are using VisionLab which doesn't have this clause).
While I'm aware that according to bullet number five, FXhome can, "refuse to showcase a movie in the cinema and can also remove a movie without notice from the cinema, with no obligation to provide an explanation," it would be nice for FXhome to provide explanations for as many movies as is possible. I have, to the best of my knowledge complied with every one of the above requirements and am fairly proud of my movie. Having it rejected when I have complied with the above is something of a serious setback. WTF, mates?

That's my two cents. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Whenever we reject a movie we send an email to the author which explains the reason in detail. If you didn't receive that email then please check your email address is up to date in your user options. Also make sure that you're not blocking our emails somehow (eg spam filters).

Yeah.... uh... I have been in the process of a major e-mail "revision," so to speak (I really like that word). My parents are ditching AT&T dial-up service which has faithfully served for about nine years, but since we've been at high speed for about three years now, my parents have chosen to finally switch to Gmail and give the AT&T e-mail addresses the boot.

Needless to say, I've never used my AT&T e-mail address too much recently... it's spam filter is nothing next to Gmail's, and I get 2+ GB of space on Gmail. When my parents asked if I would mind if they deleted my e-mail address, I said, "Go right ahead." I just switched my login e-mail from my AT&T one to my Gmail one today, but my AT&T e-mail address has actually not existed for about a week now. smile

Oh man. I feel silly. Would it be wrong of me to ask if I could get that e-mail forwarded to apickle@gmail.com?
