If you want to use an account with ZoomBlast,
you need a "ZoomGroups ID". In other words, you need to create an accoun at
ZoomGroups is not "a different site", rather, it is
the platform used by ZoomBlast to identify yourself.
It is also a platform that allows you to do
countless things: create email groups "a la YahooGroups", blogs, social networking, trade, etc.
and of course, use ZoomBlast :-)
Please note that ZoomGroups is
undergoing a major redesign (the current design is, well, a bit old-fashioned and not very
user friendly), so if you use other ZoomGroups services,
do expect lots of improvements in the near future.
After you've created and confirmed your ZoomGroups account,
you'll be able to start using ZoomBlast from your own account right away.

Why create an account?
You don't need an account to vote or submit videos.
However, we suggest you do create it for a number of (good) reasons:
- First, videos submitted by anonymous users
are first placed in the vault. The vault is an area that only
registered users with an average-to-high profile can see. Then,
only when one of these users release your video from the vault, it
can be seen in the public queue, where anyone can vote on it
and hopefully make it to the front page.
- Also, to prevent abuses, anonymous votes can only be casted once
per IP per video. That can be a problem if you're connecting from
a public computer, a proxy, etc.
- Last, by using your account, ZoomBlast can keep a profile on
the videos you submit, your votes, etc. and over time, the chances
that your submissions make it to the front page are much higher, besides
allowing you to build a reputation within ZoomBlast, of course.
