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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 04/26/07 at 10:41 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (W)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(W) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday May 9th
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
What Rhymes With Orange?

2.  Max Power

I suppose it'll DQ me for the X's (and sorry I didn't do this sooner).  But please withdraw "Why Can't I Date" from consideration.

4 points to #6, The Charnstar
3 points to #10, Michael McVey
2 points to #8, Mikey Squirrel

Congwatuwations to my fellow winners, Johnny D and Wristof!

*takes out gag teeth*

Great work, guys. I thank everyone who voted for my wacky parody as well! It's been a few letters since I got the gold in an ABC round - definitely not easier than SOTM! (Stu will get that  ;))
