D:I think this was a problem last year too... Did you use any quotation marks or apostrophes or anything odd like that? If so, try taking those out. SQL gets confused by certain characters.
Quote from: Ska on May 01, 2015, 03:28:46 PMI swear I didn't break it!It looks like you're probably trying to make one of your song choices "I'm Alive" right?Remove the ' or write it I\'m AliveI think the form just doesn't handle ' or " gracefully. Sorry about that! When I can get a hold of whoever wrote it, I'll ask them to fix it for us.
Quote from: ZeroBudgetGamer on May 01, 2015, 07:11:56 PMGlad I checked here, I was having the same problem. One apostrophe was barring my entry, but that's all fixed now. Gotta say, I'm a little nervous, since I'm kinda uncertain about my prelim song.
Quote from: Nina Star 9 on May 03, 2015, 08:54:15 AMJust out of curiosity: why are video games excluded from the "must be anime" requirement? It seems like songs from Japanese games, especially those with anime styling or otherwise overlap into anime fandoms (whether as overt as Idolm@ster where that's a lot of slippage between the two or where there's just a lot of stylistic and fandom overlap like many JRPGS, shmups, etc.), should still be able to fulfill that requirement, since it would still be themed to the show. Is it just too difficult to police the game requirement (origin of both the game and the song)? Or do you want to limit it to specifically anime because it's specifically an anime con?I don't know if you can really discuss the reasoning for the rules, but as I said, I'm just curious.and not at all bitter that I don't watch a lot of anime or know a lot of anime with music that would be singable for me, but can bust out all sorts of songs made for video games...or bitter that about 85% of anime music with female vocalists tends to be /totally/ the wrong vocal range or style for me, though maybe I'm just not getting a broad enough view of anime music because I don't really listen to it

The popularity of video game music, vocaloids, and internet memes have increased so much lately that it's beginning to encompass everything. Keeping one song based on an anime is a way to keep people centered around one common source, just like having the other more open lets people's true likes and interests shine through.I'm sorry you feel that way! It's not anyone's intent to make you salty. I mean, you know we enjoy your song choices at open mic. Most of them are songs and bands we love too! I'm sure you'll find something great if you haven't already.Keep practicing, everyone!
Quote from: Enkai on May 07, 2015, 12:15:06 AMOn a related note because I had a moment of not being sure - stage musical adaptations of anime count as being along the same lines of live action adaptations, right? That's how I had interpreted that anyway.

Quote from: Nina Star 9 on May 11, 2015, 08:59:02 PMI know you all love my open mic selections! I'm glad. :] I can't really pull off a lot of that for a contest, but I do have fun singing it. I'll be bringing my usual mix of jazz, shibuya-kei Guitar Vader, Megumi Hayashibara, etc. this year, so look forward to it!
