It's impossible to get any video submitted if even the moderators post things in their own names :'(

#5 No, it is not impossible. You were just not the first who submitted. Submit first and you will be credited for it. Look Burimi for example: he has 620 videos on Snotr you have just 17, and over time has submitted over 1000 videos for review, and he doesn't complain.

#5 #6 #7 By the time you all submitted the video, mine was already published but not visible on the site, but waiting in queue. There were disputes on this subject before, and the answer is simple: first come -> first served. As simple as that ;) we don't favor anyone. When an admin submits a video, goes through the same review process like anybody's else. I submitted many videos that never got published ;)
