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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 08/21/08 at 9:56 pm


Welcome to the
ABC4 (Z)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(Z) is midnight (amiright time)  Wednesday September 3rd
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.  Doritos
Zonky Cat
          youtube here


2.  Red Ant
Zero Chance
          video here


3.  Agrimorfee
Zookeeping Is Rather Beastly

Top choice is for IB's Whor-o-scope.
2nd best choice for Agri's zoological logic.
3rd choice for Jack's Zero tolerance for chance.


No HMs - No one left to bestow any upon.

Congrats to IB and Agri - though the round was short and sweet it is memorable.  Fine work Jack and my thanks for all who have accepted my "Guyspeak" that must now be my signature in parody writing.  Also thanks to all who voted who did not participate in this round.  See you all in the # round.
