Having trouble uploading mp4 video into the submission section on the Google doc, the images went on no problem just not the video. Any assistance you can provide on this matter is greatly appreciated :)

If it's not working, you can upload it to a video hosting website such as YouTube and provide a link to it in your submission.

I know it might be a little too late, but i would like to change a picture of my creation. I have tried all day but Google Forms does not let me edit my submitted pictures. Might there be some other way i can send my picture to replace an old one?

If you send a PM to me with your images, I’ll see about swapping them out.

Hi! I'm entering the Halloween Contest with a Terraria remix in the "Other" category. I've submitted it on the Google Doc as a YouTube Link, but wanted to make sure there was nothing else I needed to do. I read on the rules that photo submissions are required, but I assume this isn't true for this category? Let me know if there's anything I should edit on the document and I'd be happy to make changes!

Including a link to a YouTube is fine. :)

Eh, I really don't expect to be even in top 50 of entries, so I did mine mostly for the fun of it, and shared it with a few of my friends.
If it's good - it'll be seen, and it will get somewhere. If it doesn't, and if it just gets lost among other creations - then I guess it wasn't that good, and I'll have to try better next time. Either way - I don't consider the time wasted. It was fun, and I did try some new things with it, so that should count for something. :v
