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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 11/14/07 at 11:47 pm

Welcome to the
ABC4 (G)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(G) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday November 28th
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.  Agrimorfee
(Gotta Have) Lotto Luck

5th, 1 Point to Cat (Good parody for such a short song)

4th, 2 Points to Agrimorfee (Lottery shines on your pacing and consistency)

3rd, 3 Points to TCOP (I liked it in the Sugar Ray round, and I still think it's among your better works)

2nd, 4 Points to Stu (I didn't have to think twice about this one, heavyweight here Stu)

1st, 5 Points to Kristof (Honestly, even with the stiff competition, your grizzly parody really shined)

Yeah, I remembered that the day after I was supposed to vote. I felt really bad for it.  :-[ I'm so sorry!

It's all right, I didn't enter anything for H. But I would have been quite sad if I'd have to miss the I-round!
