    Ryan We are focusing our moderation decisions based on record category rules and nothing else. Let's focus on the spirit of the competition, not legal language.

    ryan you dont make sense...just let it go dude...your boy got beat trying to find outs

    if you can break the rule of not wearing logos..why can't you break every other rule? it doesn't make sense

    Ryan almost every single record has logos in it. Personally, I have practically no clothing without logos on it. They will blur them out if necessary, records should absolutely not be denied for including logos, that's just ridiculous

    I am just saying it is against the rules. A rule is a rule.

    Dustin Barker

    I understand that. but a lot of people have them and its hard to avoid that in all cases. We aren't trying to openly give free advertising.. Ive counted 20 plus videos with nike signs in them. So Im sure they can work around it

    Dustin Barker

    I just went through and watched about 25 other videos with a nike, adidas, or jordan logo. I'm sure they will edit there videos

  • response to this attempt United States Ryan Winnick

    Ryan Winnick

    why would they mention no logos in the rules if they could just simply edit it out?

  • response to this attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    yeah I'm not worried about it.. I give complete permission of recordsetter.com and Stride to edit my videos to how they would like. There are several videos where I can see logo like Nike or the Florida Gator.

    if that was the case...they wouldve denied the attempts in the first place...not to mention almost every record has some sort of logo...ive seen nike logos, adidas logos, and college logos in other videos...plus its not like stride can't edit a little logo out

    dustinbarker if you read the rules before you wouldn't of made the mistake to wear articles of clothing with logos on them. the ones with music or profanity in them haven't been fully looked into. they will be doing that all week.

  • response to previous attempt United States Mitch Jankowski

    Mitch Jankowski

    and it also states that their cant be music or profanity words and some videos have those. but you guys said you could remove audio.. also you can see nike shoes on several people. Hope you guys are understanding. Thanks!

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    lol... i'm sure you guys can fix the video so the logo doesnt show. you can see nike on all peoples shoes. I cant help that all my shorts and pants have logos. Hopefully you guys can work around it and work it out because I know there are many more videos with the same situation throughout the 100 records. thanks guys!

    dan roll man, i saw dustin's pending video and noticed that during the entire video, a nike symbol can be seen on his pants. it becomes very visible at the end. a sign of a logo means for a failed video correct?

    haha it's ok he beat it again with correct form so don't sweat it (:

    Dustin Ryan Mitch Upon further review, Alban does not follow the Rules. As you note, his lower back does not touch the floor between sit-ups. We have reverted our decision and denied this attempt.

  • response to previous attempt United States Mitch Jankowski

    Mitch Jankowski

    his back does not touch at all...not even the lower back

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    Record Setter.. Not saying he can't do that many sit-ups. but it clearly doesn't follow all the criteria. You guys accepting this?

  • response to previous attempt United States Ryan Winnick

    Ryan Winnick

    dustin i didn't see this video until now, you are right his back does not become flat against the floor each time. dq.

  • response to previous attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    Ryan.. how is this one a flat lower back.. his lower back never once touches the floor? these aren't even sit-'UPS'

  • response to previous attempt United States Ryan Winnick

    Ryan Winnick

    the pending videos all have the flat back

  • response to this attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    Just checked out some pending videos on this.. Your right about this video its all good. His lower back does reach the ground, but the pending videos that beat his, the lower back must go flat at the base of each sit up, which is part of the criteria! keep an eye on that for pending videos on this record

    Dustin and Ryan -- We just watched the videos in this category and our decision stands. Benjamin's form is acceptable. Dustin, we have no reason to think anyone is helping Benjamin's feet. Furthermore, your feet are out of frame in your attempt, too.

    Neil Sorry for the technical issues. We've said this elsewhere, but for anyone having troubles uploading large files, please use ge.tt and email the link once uploaded to rob at recordsetter dot com.

  • response to this attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    yeah, why have there been no replies? as far as these sit-ups, shouldn't you be able to see the persons feet? I need to know if I need to redo this

  • response to this attempt United States Neil Moallem

    Neil Moallem

    I have asked this question through email and have not received a satisfactory response so I will ask it again here. WHY IS YOUR WEBSITE NOT ACCEPTING FILES THAT HAVE HAD THEIR FORMAT CONVERTED FROM "mov" to "avi"????? It is a huge problem for me because I have 3gb files that I can only upload if I convert them to a smaller file type (being avi) yet your site won't let me upload the "avi" files and the videos are too long for me to put on YouTube. WHAT DO I DO!?!?!? There are only a few days left!!!!

  • response to this attempt United States Dustin Barker

    Dustin Barker

    I think I'd agree with Ryan. Not saying he can't do all those but you should probably be able to see his feet. Otherwise people could do this and just have people hold their feet without seeing

    To everyone in this thread with upload issues. Sorry, there was temporary bug on SAT that disrupted submissions for a small period. The bug has been fixed, the submission form has been tested, and everything is back to functioning properly.
