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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 06/26/08 at 1:31 am

Welcome to the
ABC4 (V)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(V) is midnight (amiright time)  Wednesday July 9th
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)

OK - That's it number 2 - next round I use either binary or roman numerals.  So,  in this round V=X÷II - Roman Algebra 0001 0000 0001.  Except there is no such thing since the Romans never thought of the concept of zero.  :o  :D  ;D

Red Ant asked me to inform everyone that he will not be able to make the voting deadline.  He is on a work site and has not had a chance to vote, he said he would read and comment on everyone's parody when he gets back and that he is sorry. . .

I'm having trouble with youtube.  It gives me a message saying "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player"  I've downloaded the latest versions of Java and Flash Player, but still no good.  Any suggestions anyone?

As such I couldn't listen to the OS's to the ones I didn't know, but I'm pretty sure I got my voting right anyway.

Congrats to IB, Stu & Agri.  Sorry to see Jack was tied up at the work site.  Is there anything in the rules that says he can compete in the next round or is he just out?  I know he sometimes votes on the last day and given that I would be in favor of letting him into the next round.  He did get word to us before the fact telling us what was up.  Another reason -  since his inability to vote seems to me to be legitimate and the number of contestants is consistently under ten and usually around eight, if for no other reason to have one more contestant in the mix.  I make a motion to consider Jack eligible for the next round.

nicely done Guy - in fact the following rule (copied from above) is in place for just such a situation

    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


Guy posted the appeal and one vote.  Jack has my sympathy too, so there's the second vote.

One more thumbs-up from anyone and Red Ant is not disqualified from the W-Round

Red Jack Ant Fletcher has my vote.
Congrats to Stu and IB. This was a no-brainer.

Congratulations to Stu and Agri...

Jack has my vote (although at this point not needed) as well

Thanks for the votes. I guess I can finally retire this one unless "Schoolhouse Rock" comes up in Artistry.

I can safely assure you Schoolhouse Rock is not one of the remaining artists:)

Hey Ag - that's really funny because I used to have an Aunt Fletcher.  But doesn't Jack still need to post an appeal?  I guess posting an appeal is a bit  :D "DUH" :D at this point but the rule that Stu posted said an appeal must be posted and "mercy" begged for.  Just jerkin' some chains - I'm just glad that Jack is back.  Thanks everyone who voted Jack a thumbs up.  But it might be fun to see him beg a bit.  ;D

Congrats to IB, Stu and Aggy!

I've only got a minute here but thanks for all the thumbs up votes. I will not be in town much the next few weeks, so I'm not in the W round. Like Dave said, I'll read everyone's parodies when I get back into town Sunday - sorry I couldn't make the deadline this time.
