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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 01/31/07 at 11:30 pm

Welcome to the
ABC3 (Q)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(Q) is midnight (inthe00s "non-logged-in" time)     Wednesday February 14
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.  Red Ant
Queen Arwen

2.  Matthias
Quailing

3.  Johnny D
Q's Id

4.  tomario
Quit Me Baby All Is Mine!

Results for the Q round are:

1st place with 35 points:    "Quite A Laidback Jail" by Stuart McArthur
2nd place with 31 points:  "Queen Of Prom" by Cat
3rd place with 21 points:    "Queen Arwen" by Red Ant

******************

Johnny D - 16
Matthias - 11
Mikey Squirrel - 9
Agrimorfee - 6
Mike McVey - 3
tomario - 3


From memory, I think every entrant had scored votes after only 4 sets of votes, which might be a record for this size comp (9)

no DQs this round

thanks everyone who voted for my Laidback Jail (which I actually wrote for the Q-comp as I didn't have a Q before then)

congrats to Cat's wonderfully dry "Queen of Prom" and Red Ant's affectionate BOG tribute to the (some might say) much-tributed Arwen 8)
