Subject: Voting Thread For ABC4(B) *** results posted ***

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 09/08/07 at 9:26 am

Welcome to the
ABC4 (B)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(B) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday September 19th
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 ABC4 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.  Below Average Dave
Bowl It
          Dave's Recording here

I found this live performance

Can't guarantee pacing to the original.

Everybody in my vote card had very specific reasons for their honor in this round.

5pts=Jeff (puns)
4pts=Cat (changing the rhyme of the title hook, originality)
3pts=Matthias (word subbing)
2pts=Conqueror (completeness despite repetition)
1pts=Stu (cleverly smutty)

HM to B.A.D (research)

This is (honestly) the first comp I've voted on in my 3 1/2 years here where EVERY parody deserved a placing. Not one weak or unamusing piece at all...
Unfortunately, I've only got 5 votes, so

5 pts: Stu's tribute to Britney's bit-ney
4 pts: Matty's rollicking redneck riot
3 pts: Jeff's jersey japes
2 pts: Cat's calamitous contusions
1 pt: Dave's laughable lane loser

And the Highest of commendations to bobpie, Agri and Jack. Great work, all

I don't want to sound like a prickly pear here, but Jack got his vote in late.. around the same time I got mine in for the A round. Since I was disqualified for the next round, I believe it should be the same situation here...
Sorry Jack, I just want it to be fair.

holy toledo, you're absolutely right, Mikey - sorry I didn't pick it up and you were forced to put on your "prickly pear" hat

in fact I'd been waiting for such an occurrence to demonstrate the strictness of the timestamp rule (ie votes coming in before I close voting but after midnight) and when it finally happens I don't even notice it.

sorry Jack, but your datestamp is after midnight, so your votes don't count.  Unfortunately you're also disqualified from the C-round (unless you'd like to try the "plead your case" avenue, as described at the top of this thread) - but make sure you enter for the D's!

Hey you noticed I recorded "Good Riddance" right?

Wasn't sure, I didn't make it well known because it was kinda meant to be a surprise that happened on "B-Day" but so many recordings got posted that it was only briefly on the front page.
