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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 05/10/07 at 12:34 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (X)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(X) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday May 23rd
No votes date-stamped after the voting deadline will be accepted - no exceptions



Vote by replying to this thread with your TWO(!) favorites in order:

1st choice........5 points
2nd place.........4 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.  Johnny D
X-Ray SPAM, You'll See

2.  Mikey Squirrel
X-rated

3.  Arwen
The X-Woman Wannabe's Song

Stu, if I may butt in for a moment...

IMHO, I think that first place votes should get 5 points, not 2, second 4, not 1. Also, there could be outside voting, so third would get 3, not 0 points. While a very limited round, I don't think those who entered should be penalised in ABCAotY standings via less points and a different scale due to so few entries.

yes, I think you're right - or I assume you know you're right, so I won't check precedents  ;)

I got carried away with the novelty of the situation

I'll re-open voting to outsiders soon, and the scores to be given are 5 4 and 3 (except for the 3 entrants who can only give 5 and 4)

I never assume I know I am right - often it's more like "Am I Right" ?  ;D

Last year's Z round had three entrants, so I was thinking of that contest.

I would have entered this round, but I didn't realize I had an eligible parody (d'oh!)

I'm about to vote...and I'm not trying to cause a wrinkle or anything...because I AM going to vote today...and it's clearly in my best interest to just let you call it done as soon as I vote...BUT...

If you put a deadline of May 23rd...AND you state that anyone who has participated in the past can vote...I don't think you should close the voting as soon as my votes post.  There are a lot of people who COULD vote, if they want to...

And wait...Mikey hasn't voted anyway...(the second vote was Matthias)...so you're not waiting on me...you're waiting on Mikey, too!

And...here are my promised votes:

5 points for Johnny
4 points for Mikey

Thanks! :)

I second Super Arwen's motion -- here's hoping lots of non-X ABC participants will take a few moments and cast their votes for this very short list (only three, for goodness sake!) of ABC-X entries!

I plead guilty to recklessness.  I saw Matthias's votes and assumed they were Mikey's (well both start with an M :-excitement must have made me giddy

Non-participants can VOTE?  Hazzit always been that way?  Duh. 
Anyhow, I'm pleased to be able to cast my votes as follows:

1. Arwen (5 points)
2. Johnny D (4 points)

What would happen if only one song enter? Win by default? ;D

I guess so. It's never happened in an ABC or SOTM. I do remember one contest that had one entry, it was cancelled.  Matthias and Leo Jay (welcome back, btw) - by default your 3rd place votes go to Mikey's entry, Amiright Stu?

Only three entries and I still can't get a 5 point vote?  :-\\
Oh well, I'll keep trying..
Anyways, here's my votes:
5 pts- Arwen's X-Fetish

I've gotta say it was a bit odd having some people voting for 2 parodies and others for 3, but that's what I asked people to do, so I stuck with it.  Noone was disadvantaged though because only the three entrants cast 2 votes - so it all worked out.  (In other words, I added an extra vote to the 2 outsiders who only voted for 2 songs (Matthias and Leo) so they actually voted for 3 songs (the entry they omitted receiving the implied 3rd-place 3-vote)

Results of the X-Round

1st place with 24 points:            "The X-Woman Wannabe's Song" by Arwen
2nd place with 22 points:          "X-Ray Spam, You'll See" by Johnny D
3rd place with 17 points:            "X-Rated" by Mikey Squirrel

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

Congrats to Arwen, Johnny D and Mikey

see you in the Y's
