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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 06/12/07 at 2:23 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (Z)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(Z) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday June 20th
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.  Matthias
Zany Neighbours

2.  Max Power
Zarqawi

3.  Mike McVey
Zoo Train

4.  Johnny D
Zing Of The Toad

5.  Stuart McArthur
The Zoo, The Werewolf And My Barber Paul

Congrats to all zee Z round wieners!  :D

If I may be extraordinarily anal here, shouldn't everyone have 5 more points than they do? I whined a bit in the X round about first place not getting 5 points due to the number of entrants. Since this round was similarly lacking in entries, I don't think it that fair to go by a four point scale. Of course, it affects no one in this contest since everyone would be bumped up one point (x 5 since there were 5 voters), but it could matter in ABCAotY standings. Not that I want to give everyone five more points on me, but, you know, just for the integrity of the contests, I should.  ;)

First, I'd like to thank everyone and to congratulate Johnny and Stuart.

Second, I'd like to let everyone know that I've been incommunicado for several days because......

MY BABY KATHLEEN WAS BORN WEDNESDAY NIGHT!!!

That's a valid point. Maybe the votes for the standings could count as if we had voted 5-4-3-2.

whoops, you're absolutely right Jack - and it's happened before, in the X's so I should have been onto it.

Everyone gets 4 more points than they have (not 5, because each voter's 4 choices just have 1 point added to them)

so it's.....
