ECA Announces Gamer Video Contest For YouTube Presidential Debates

August 6, 2007 -
ECA to Award T-shirts to All Who Participate!

The Entertainment Consumers Association is excited about the 2008 presidential election campaign as well as concerned about how the candidates view issues pertaining to games and gamers. 

The ECA also notes the upcoming CNN/YouTube Republican debate, which will air on September 17th.

In order to encourage true grassroots gamer activism, the ECA will be awarding a T-shirt to anyone who uploads a video question pertaining to game consumer rights to the GOP candidates for the YouTube presidential debate. Standard YouTube debate rules apply.

One T-shirt will be mailed to each individual who successfully uploads a video question. Mention of the ECA is not required, but is appreciated. A link to your video along with your contact information (name, address, phone and email) should be sent to info@theECA.com. Contest is open to ECA members as well as non-members.

You can also expect to see your video published here on GamePolitics as well as on the ECA's Facebook and MySpace pages

I am going to be making one from GamingAngels.com, and I have encouraged everyone in the forums to make one! Great work Gamepolitics.com and ECA!

I am working on mine as we speak.

[...] The Entertainment Consumers Association’s (ECA) is encouraging people to add videos with a contest to get you, dear reader, to submit video questions “pertaining to game consumer rights” for the upcoming CNN / YouTube Republican debate set to air on September 17. . We think it’s a great idea. [...]

GP: I made a video pertaining to Romney's Ocean of Filth videos. I asked why he feels Americans should back censorship of that sort.

Would that count? It doesn't address game consumers directly, but it addresses government crackdowns.

I had to go and open my mouth...*sigh*

Hey, I already put one up. Do I still get a Tee?

youtube has a crapload of vids, so the chances of my embaresment are less.

if it's on gp, then other people will deffinatly see it.





i've got issues. :)

LOL, Billy. I hear ya. Well, I think that spreading the word via GP, MySpace and FaceBook is part of the deal, so if that is a turnoff for you, perhaps best to re-think the idea.

I should tell this to my friends over on SecondLife. Some of these people are brilliant and could probably come up with a very unique way to approach this.

Billy, If the video is up on YouTube, what's the difference?

what if i don't want it to appear on gp or the eca myface?

im on the work, btw does it apply to non-americans too ?

Cool idea and one I’d like to participate in but alas, I have no video capture equipment. It’s probably for the best though. Due to my size and voice I tend to come off as really intimidating to lot of people.

Guess I’ll stick with letter writing.

Matthew Wilson@pm I doubt it. Google seems to be distancing themselves from G+07/25/2014 - 9:31pm
Papa MidnightGoogle+ Integration is coming to Twitch!07/25/2014 - 8:41pm
MaskedPixelanteThis whole Twitch thing just reeks of Google saying "You thought you could get away from us and our policies. That's adorable."07/25/2014 - 2:52pm
Sleaker@james_fudge - hopefully that's the case, but I wont hold my breath for it to happen.07/25/2014 - 1:08pm
SleakerUpdate on crytek situation is a bit ambiguous, but I'm glad they finally said something: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-07-25-crytek-addresses-financial-situation07/25/2014 - 1:07pm
E. Zachary KnightMan Atlas, Why do you not want me to have any money? Why? http://www.atlus.com/tears2/07/25/2014 - 12:06pm
Matthew WilsonI agree with that07/25/2014 - 10:45am
james_fudgeI think Twitch will have more of an impact on how YouTube/Google Plus work than the other way around.07/25/2014 - 10:22am
IanCWelp, twitch is going to suck now. Thanks google.07/25/2014 - 6:30am
Sleaker@MP - Looked up hitbox, thanks.07/24/2014 - 9:40pm
Matthew WilsonI agree, but to me given other known alternatives google seems to the the best option.07/24/2014 - 6:30pm
Andrew EisenTo be clear, I have no problem with Google buying it, I'm just concerned it will make a slew of objectively, quantifiably bad changes to Twitch just as it's done with YouTube over the years.07/24/2014 - 6:28pm
Matthew WilsonI doubt yahoo has the resources to pull it off, and I not just talking about money.07/24/2014 - 6:15pm
SleakerI wouldn't have minded a Yahoo purchase, probably would have been a better deal than Tumblr seeing as they paid the same for it...07/24/2014 - 6:13pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's the golden age of Hitbox, I guess.07/24/2014 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilsonagain twitch was going to get bought. It was just who was going to buy it . Twitch was not even being able to handle the demand, so hey needed a company with allot of infrastructure to help them. I can understand why you would not want Google to buy it .07/24/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew Eisen"Google is better than MS or Amazon" Wow. Google, as I mentioned earlier, progressively makes almost everything worse and yet there are still two lesser options. Again, wow!07/24/2014 - 5:43pm
Andrew EisenI don't know. MS, in my experience, is about 50/50 on its products. It's either fine or it's unusable crap. Amazon, well... I've never had a problem buying anything from them but I don't use any of their products or services so I couldn't really say.07/24/2014 - 5:42pm
Matthew WilsonGoogle is better than MS or Amazon.07/24/2014 - 5:33pm
Sleaker@AE - I've never seen youtube as a great portal to interact with people from a comment perspective. like ever. The whole interface doesn't really promote that.07/24/2014 - 5:28pm
