Written By: Stuart McArthur on 07/11/08 at 7:10 pm


Welcome to the
ABC4 (W)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(W) is midnight (amiright time)  Wednesday July 23rd
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

You misplaced your comment for Mikey in Matthias' entry instead. Not trying to get all so Eliot Ness on you :D, but Mikey I think would appreciate seeing it in there.

My bad-ness Ag - I submitted a request to remove the errant comment and then placed the appropriate comment in Mikey's parody.  I do all my commenting and voting offline and had the wrong URL pasted up.  Went a bit too fast and missed poor Mikey.  Sorry. 

Off the subject a bit - seems that you and I are the only ones in the "X" round.  Matt had an entry there but now it appears to be gone.  Does anyone know if we ever had to skip a letter due to a lack of entries?  I did some looking around the site on the usual ABC authors for "X" parodies.  Seems most have been previously used in other comps.  Perhaps we can bail this out if we got a concensus about re-using "X" parodies but only for this round.  Any thoughts on this idea out there please?

Guy,

For what it's worth, I have an "X" parody in the works. Since it's due on the 23d, I guess I know what I'll be doing late on the 22d.

Max calls Matthias 'Mafia' for some reason (I've noticed this trend in the Artistry voting threads). The 'whack anyone but..' part blends the title on Matty's entrant with the Mafia's penchant for whacking people.

Actually, I'm more confused about why he keeps calling Rex 'Grossman' with numerous references to him being cut.

I'm not a football nut, but I am a fair-weather Chicago Bears fan! Rex Grossman is the much-beleagured quarterback for the team. His story with the Bears is much like the famous little girl who had a little curl right on the middle of her forehead...

When she was good, she was very very good.
When she was bad, she was horrid.

Huge (and surprised) thanks for my votes for a parody that went so far under the radar when I posted it that I'd almost dismissed it from my memory

Congrats to Agrimorfee for his epic, and to Matthias for his reworking of the classic about the constant reworkings of the classic


see (a few of) you in the X's
