Subject: Voting Thread For ABC3 (P) - results posted

Written By: Red Ant on 01/18/07 at 5:28 pm

Welcome to the
ABC3 (P)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(P) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday January 31st
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.........

1: Psychology by Below Average Dave

No Internet cafes or libraries with access in your neck of the woods, Charnstar? So sorry, I know what it's like when someone else is in charge of the computer. :(  Folks, let's not DQ the man if he can't get to another PC in time.

Heck! I have enough trouble voting SOTM, without having to struggle through ABC as well!

5 pts: Arwen's music malady
4 pts: Matthias canine calamity
3 pts: Johnny's fuel ferocity
2 pts: Stuart's analysis animosity
1 pt: Agri's pepperoni partiality

And an apology to bobpie, who's wonderful "Packin'" deserves much kudos, and is the hardest cut I've had to make in a while. So much quality, I'm getting tearful!

Ah, that's right, this is your letter (as well as Q), which is good because I have to tally SOTM voting as well as post the Wildcard thread (Claude is doing the Jan SOTM contest). Both of those will be done by tomorrow evening.

Did half of my commenting yesterday afternoon and figured I'd wrap it up in the evening, but then I just got slammed by some sort of "kill me now, please" sickness last night, and just went to bed. 

It's totally my fault, I know...I shouldn't put these things off, but oh well.  Thanks to all of those who voted for me...you're awesome!
