Subject: Voting Thread For ABC3 (N) - ***** results posted *****

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 12/21/06 at 8:27 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (N)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(N) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday January 3rd
No votes date-stamped after the voting deadline will be accepted - no exceptions



Vote by replying to this thread with your five favorites in order:

1st choice........5 points
2nd place.........4 points
3rd place..........3 points
4th place..........2 points
5th place..........1 point

or in algebraic terms, p = 6 - r     (p=points, r=rank)



RULES
- Any parody beginning with the current letter is eligible, except parodies that have been entered into ABC1 or ABC2
- You're not allowed to vote for your own parody
- Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it
- Anyone who's participated in any previous ABC contest may vote
- Any entrant who hasn't left a comment on all entries is disqualified and may not participate in the next letter
- Any entrant who doesn't vote by the voting deadline (above) is disqualified and may not participate in the next letter



ALSO
Under no circumstances will a vote that missed the voting deadline be accepted (even by 1 second)
However the resulting disqualification from entry to the next ABC3 comp may be over-ruled, if you do the following...

   1.  Post an "appeal" on this thread giving your excuse for missing the deadline, and plead for mercy
   2.  If your plea wins the sympathy of 3 other entrants your disqualification from the next round will be overturned
        Your late votes will still not count though 
        (if less than 4 entrants in the comp, only 2 sympathetic "Thumbs Ups" are required)



And the entries are.........

I'm on holidays with very limited internet access, so I may not get the results up until a day after tomorrow's deadline, but I'll try...

(luckily Jack is running the O-comp)

Thanks all who voted for me. Regarding the awkward pacing: yes, it was a bit. In my experience, the word "everybody" (or "everybody's", as it were) is a bastard to sub well for. Hmm... that sounds like an interesting topic in the parody section...

My voting was similar too! Congrats all.

"Honorable mention" is a nice touch, Red.  8) When I end up point-less, it is a quiet poke into my ego.  :-[

I'm going to start leaving "honorable mention" or something similar for those that finish as you did this round. Leaving "0", or omitting a person's name from the list is like they didn't even compete or got DQed, which doesn't seem quite fair to me.

Congrats to Newbie Cat (yeah, right!) Nerdy Charnstar, and Noisy JD. Charny, is this your first medal? If yes- well done son! If no, please forgive my ignorance.... ;)

Congratulations to Cat and The Charnstar! And thanks to everyone who put on their ear-protectors, read my noisy nonsense, and yanked back on the starting cord of Chucky's five-stroke voting-engine!  ;D

Big congrats to Charnstar and JD as well!

thanks Jack - that was a big help  :)

congrats Cat on a thoroughly deserved gold (your first gold?) and to Charnstar's brilliant piece (also a medal first?) and to Johnny D (so many medals he'd need an annexe to house them)

as for replacing "0" with "honourable mention", I think it's a teeny bit patronising or protective, but I might be the only one out-of-step there, so I'll go along with it if everyone else likes the idea - but I'd much prefer to see a "0" next to my name if that's what I got

Actually, my first ABC gold was last year's Y-comp for "You've Been Blessed," but thanks anyway, Stu! :)

I'm still lacking a gold in the SOTM though, I've gotten bronze and silver but never the top spot on the podium...someday, Cat, someday....
