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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 11/28/07 at 11:21 pm



Welcome to the
ABC4 (H)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(H) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday November 12th
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)

Sorry folks I could not get logged in and I needed to get this voting out today.  It's really me so please don't discard the voting and disqualify me.  I commented on all the parodies as per the rules.

As interesting as it was leaving huge comments, I think that's the last time I do in depth reviews quite in that manor,

Sorry if I seemed harsh to anyone.  ..

HM: Conqueror.  I realize that you had a massive effort on a difficult song, and I applaud you for taking it on, there were just certain word choices in your parody that seemed a little. . .well. . .they took away from the overall comedy of the song

5th, 1 Point goes to Kristof Robertson (Technically sound, not drop dead funny, but fun none the less)

4th, 2 Points go to Agrimorfee (Originality and pacing were major pluses on this one Agri, funny too)

3rd, 3 Points go to Red Ant (Risky? Not really, you have worse in your collection, but original and funny)

2nd, 4 Points go to Matthias (Difficulty of parody played a role, it's not easy to do a kick anus parody to this song)

1st, 5 Points go to Guy DiRito (Totally surprised me and to a classic song, despite formatting, this parody really was drop dead funny)

When was the last time we had a clear-cut tie for 1st?

Good job, guys!

Congrats to conqueror - is this your first ABC gold? And congrats to Kristof: same question.  ;)



and congrats to Red Ant for medalling


And a most unexpected medal at that! As you and Kristof pointed out, it is kinda repetitive, but nowhere near as much as TOS. I will say this parody ranks in my top 5 as far as "Most time spent running ideas into the ground before actually finishing the parody", so I'm glad my little ditty to natural women didn't get "cut".
