thank you for understanding but this technical issue is most likely due to another contestant flagging this video clip on youtube.
Sorry for re-posting this after each comment, but it needs to stay at the top until we fix the technical issue so that people can find the video clip.

Thank you for your kind words Jon! Don't worry about this! I think it is 'normal' in this field/situation and I have to get used to it. As someone gets more known he usually also gets an increased number of negative comments in public. This is more likely to happen at a contest I suppose where sometimes friends want to support their friends.

Keep voting people only a few days left! Don’t worry about the negative people Dimitris having seen how hard you work, your talent and what a genuine nice bloke you are, you don’t deserve the accusations. It’s sad that people like this resort to these kind of tactics to discredit you when watching your video you are clearly one of the best entries in the competition and deserve a place in the final. ;-)

Watch the video below and vote. Lets keep it about the music!

Thank you Roger! I couldn't find your entry. Not sure if something is wrong with the search service. I'll try again, but feel free to post your link here if you want to so that I can find it easily!

Roger Sanchez said:

Good entry, hope they can fix the video soon! Voted!

Dimitris Kyriakidis said:

If I don't answer again such accusations please don't take it personally. I don't try to ignore you, but I am busy with various things and if you investigate the matter VERY carefully by looking at posts on this space AND posts by the organizers on the pages of fellow contestants on the first couple of pages you will probably see that those accusations don't stand. We don't violate the rules of the contest.

Dear Azad,
I forgot to mention that 'X'. (I don't mention the name out of respect since he is a fellow contestant) made a little mistake in his assumption. My votes were really low back at those dates. So what he pointed out didn't really have an effect on anything here. The number of views here were WAY below the number of views there. The maths 'X' did were totally wrong, but I didn't want to be rude by saying this to him when I posted an answer about this issue on his 'comments' space. This 'scenario' simply was not 'adding' up with the views here.

Dimitris Kyriakidis said:

Posted 3 years 44 weeks ago

Dear Azad,
I am glad you mention in your opinion. I respect your opinion. There are a million things I could say and explain, but I will not be able to change your opinion. So I will leave it at that. Thank you for posting your point of view. And thanks for possibly watching the video (link below until we sort out the technical problem of possibly someone who has commented on this page flagging the video on YouTube to throw me out of the contest - I have been receiving legal advice on the issue of flagging because this affects my job, not the contest and YouTube has been contacted). Funnily enough some people want to vote more for this entry because of the flagging issue!!! Best of luck in whatever you do!

You sir, IMHO is the biggest cheater in the contest. Someone needs to keep reminding the proof(Thanks Cairn for pointing these out):

some sad,sad people about trying to put a spanner in the works of a genuine effort. I hope justice prevails and underhand behaviour gets it's own reward in the pit of hell!!!!! Keep voting people. :-)

Dimitris Kyriakidis said:

It took ages to find out how to post on my own comments space!
First of all thanks to everyone who watched this video clip and those who voted or will keep voting! Please keep voting for it whilst I work around the technical difficulty of POSSIBLY other contestant(s) trying to cause trouble.

At last I can post an answer to a couple of people who used a bit of foul language further down.
There is an answer regarding the misconception of 'fake' votes by the management on an entrant's comments space on the 1st page. They emphasize that they monitor the votes for validity. I hope this clears things up a bit for you, but do try to look for the post I'm on about.
P.S. if I were you I would delete any comments that show lack of understanding of the rules and the procedures.

Whoa dude! How did you get 8000 views on your video in just one day? :O That's really remarkable! http://i40.tinypic.com/hrk1mp.png

Posted 3 years 45 weeks ago

Theres no way this guy is getting so many legitimate votes in such a short amount of time. He only has 34 fucking youtube subscribers with 200 views on his videos. Wouldn't he have to be more of a popular person in order to receive so many votes? http://i40.tinypic.com/kcmj9f.png
