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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 05/15/08 at 2:13 am

Welcome to the
ABC4 (S)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(S) is midnight (amiright time)  Wednesday May 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.........

I too accidentally missed this deadline. I want to refrain from entering "S" parodies that have already been in other comps,  but if I can sneak this one on...I would appreciate it.

Thanks

I know you probably kept him, because it's odd to see him DQ-ed, but Agrimorfee didn't vote in the R-Round, so is he allowed to be in the S-Round? (I'm sorry Agrimorfee for ratting you out, but I would do it to anybody. Peace bud, please don't kill me.... I'M SORRY!!!!  :\'(  :-X  :-[ )

Aggie! Drop the gun! Calm down...calm down

Believe me, Max, I won't kill him for the DQ---but for challenging me with Insane Clown Posse...the jury might rule "justifiable homicide".  ;D

Again guys, I really regret missing this one (esp. since some of my best works ever are in S), but I will take it like a man.  :-[

Why does the Youtube link under Dave's parody go to that "Psycho" song that Red Ant parodied?

Wow! Second place...that's pretty kewl. Thanks for everyone who voted for me ('specially those who gave me 5 points), and congrats to Stu and BAD!

(Though I must admit that this isn't that much of a surprise - hey, school's boring, and we were on the computers, so I took advantage of it and tallied the scores myself)
