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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 10/04/07 at 1:34 am

Welcome to the
ABC4 (D)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(D) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday October 17th
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.  Matthias
Don't Hide The Keys Angelina

Errr... Stu... I edited my song and changed it to this http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/juliecovington2.shtml
Seeing that there are no rules for the ABC's like there are for SOTM, I can do that

Here's the Youtube...
