    Have you had the idea of opening a forum on this website instead
    of just writing a post like this? That may possibly give the platform for more
    individuals to chip in their suggestions as well, what do you
    think?

    I’m a bit confused as to where we submit our video for the contest. Where can I find the “contest tab” on the Funk Volume facebook page?
