Subject: Voting Thread For ABC4 (A) - *** results posted ***

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 08/23/07 at 8:00 am


Welcome to the
ABC4 (A)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(A) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday September 5th
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 or ABC3
- 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.  Cat
Arwen

2.  Agrimorfee
Amphigorian Pie

3.  Max Power
Attila's Got A Gun

4.  Jack Wilson
Addicted To Grub

5.  Jeff Reuben

6.  Matthias

7.  Red Ant

You should add Red Ant's and Below Average Dave's vocal links. Just in case nobody knows the song.

One of the best things about the ABC comp. is seeing some old favorites once again, re-read like it was the first time, and still as enjoyable (though it was the first time for Mikey's).

5pts=Mikey
4pts=Jeff Reuben
3pts=Red Ant
2pts=Cat
1pt=Conqueror

Thanks for all the votes and comments everyone. You've prompted me to do another misheard lyrics parody: it should be up tomorrow.

Congrats to Aggy and Red Ant

And thank you all who voted for my insane in-flight terror, but let me tell you. If you think that flying was bad enough, the Airport security was 100x worse.

Speaking of "c" round, hey Stu, I know that B voting hasn't started due to the other delay, but you could post the C entry round so no one can say we should do the same on that one  ;)  Thanks guys, 5th isn't bad when I'm used to being zipped in these. . .Congrats Agri, Ant, and Matthias

I thought about it Dave, but I really want more entries to the B-comp, and I didn't want to send mixed signals, with 2 comps taking entries. 

Also the problem I created with the B-comp was only leaving 3 days for entries, which is why I extended the deadline.  When I open the C-comp for entries there will still be 12 days to enter, so no big issue.  Then it's all back to second-Wednesday deadlines as usual. :)
