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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 10/18/07 at 12:05 am


Welcome to the
ABC4 (E)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(E) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday October 31st
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
Every Gal's Obsessed With Shoes

2.  Agrimorfee

Stu, I think you counted a couple of votes backwards. . .when they are posted differently per vote that is understandable. . .but I got 5 points from Conqueror, so though I don't know for sure, I don't think I finished with 7;)

In fact, here are the totals I came up with. . .

1. Stu (21)
2. Agri (20)
3. Conq (15)
4. Matthias (14)
5. BAD (11)
6. Mikey (9)

So, though I think Agri and Matt might get a little upset with me. . .sorry guys, I did vote for you:)  Because I'm building the site, I figured I'd double check when my own total seemed a little light. . . So Congrats Stu, Agri, Conq. . .and MATTHIAS even though you technically didn't podium, still a darn good entry.
