There's quite a bit of benefits to having the late deadline:

1) More time for quality edits and other things that could fall through.
2) More entries from the same editor multiple times (paging Phurion).
3) Will continue to garner attention for the Halo montage scene revolving around this site, which has been slower than slow.
4) More time for slow donations to trickle in and divide between everyone.
5) People had a TON of downtime around those holiday months - some of the only time they get to put into activities like this.

And the downsides are:
1) People might forget about some of the first ones, creating an unfair advantage.
-But they will be placed in a bracketed system forcing those to review montages at time of voting.
2) Too many finals and other deadlines.
-There are many many deadlines and to get this done right around Xmas gives everyone ample time to plan around instead of doing it third week of classes in October.

More time leads to generally better content, which leads to generally better-edited montages. Str8 tage was put off for a bit, but the extra time made it worth it without a doubt.

especially shit like group projects can fall appart so people might not try em if it needs to be done within 4 months (wont have the time to start a new project if it does).
Gameplay gotta be got, I'd rather see gp from people who just play then have them go into MM everyday rushing for clips cuz we need to start editing.
Also for a full 10+ minute video editing for 4+ months is not that strange, 10+ minutes of creative ideas is hard to just sit down and think up, let alone execute. I personally took like a year altho I understand that might be a bit of an extreme.

December is a solid deadline, I see no arguments that make me doubt that.

Pretty ignorant to say Cole. Howard won't be able to fully edit Dlongo's M1, 5DV might not be finished in time for an entry, M9 won't make an appearance, and god knows how many other fantastic videos by the best content creators wouldn't be able to get finished if the deadline was moved back.

It takes a significant amount of time (more than 5 1/2 months) to create a competitive worthy video ESPECIALLY when starting from scratch, gameplay and editing wise. 7 1/2 months is definitely a more reasonable goal.

Before posting this, you should've asked yourself the same question. Would your final be finished by October 31st if the deadline was pushed back? I didn't think so buddy...

I really wish you guys would reconsider your position. I mean seriously, if someone can't put together the kind of video they want to enter between now, and say October 31st, 5 1/2 months from now, their entry really isn't necessary. I mean heck, maybe even have a poll. October 31st vs December 31st. See what the response is. It couldn't hurt.
Spoiler alert: people have lives, not everyone spends 24/7 just on halo, sorry you think like that.

Not necessary? Are you kidding me? Some of the best montages took almost 2 years to make. What you said was completely the opposite.
