Subject: New concept to find ABC3 P.O.T.Tournament - nominations close midnight July 21

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 07/11/07 at 9:52 am


During the hiatus between the end of ABC3 and the start of ABC4, I've devised a new concept to try, based a little on the Academy Awards, in order to find "Parody of ABC3".

Jeff made an attempt at an ABC2 parody of the tournament last year, but it's just too unwieldy with 27 to choose from and having to comment and everything, and not enough people voted to make it work.

So here are the new rules:

Stage 1:   Nominations

1. Anybody is eligible to nominate, whether you've been in an ABC contest or not.
2. Nominate between 5 (minimum) and 10 (maximum) parodies from the list below, and post your nominations on this thread.
3. No need to comment on any of them - you can scan them now and pick your bunch from memory now in fact, if you want to do it quickly
4. You may NOT nominate one of your own parodies.
4. The 3 (or 4, or 5, etc. depending if there's a tie) most nominated parodies go through to the final vote - like the Academy Awards
5. IMPORTANT!!!!!!
    You MUST participate in the nomination process for a parody of yours to go through to the final vote. 
     ie. if you don't participate in this thread's nominating stage, then all your eligible parodies from the list below are disqualified


Stage 2:   Final Vote

After a while, I will post an "ABC3 Parody Of The Tournament Voting Thread" listing the final 3 contestants (or 4, or 5 if it's a tie).

1. If you wrote one of the finalists, then you must NOT vote.
1. Otherwise, voting is open to anybody, and I'll be encouraging everyone to read the 3 finalsists and choose one.
2. Remember: vote for one parody only - easy.


Ready...
Start your engines...
Nominate!!!

The complete list is as follows....
