Subject: ABC5 (W) Voting Thread RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 11/16/09 at 11:33 pm

Welcome to the
ABC5 (W)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC5(W) is by the end of the day according to AmIRight
Wednesday December 2nd
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 or ABC4
- 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 ABC5 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. Whiny Crappy Music by Red Ant
   Shiny Happy People

2. When Will You Go? by Matthias

Response to people from previous thread

**Melanie Lee, sorry, I've always considered Y a moderate letter, that's what I meant--but there is a number/symbols round, and it goes by literal number/symbols after the XYZ round, spelled out numbers (such as Eight) go under their respective letters (in that case E) this is why I have never qualified for the numbers/symbols round because I almost always spell out my words--and tend not to use symbols in my titles. . .it's usually an odd round :)

**Abbott: I liked that parody myself, but your wish is granted obviously--just remember, "You are your own worst critic" is a statement that applies to all of us, and the main goal of ABC, SOTM etc is to garner feedback more than anything--so it's always up to you, but my personal opinion is when one has a qualified entry (especially in a large field of entrants) they should enter for the exposure more than anything.  I am a man of many cliches--so here's another one "One Man's trash is another Man's treasure" . . .cliche as it may be--it's true, never doubt yourself dude.

Tuesday, November 30th
No votes date-stamped after the voting deadline will be accepted - no exceptions



Just so we don't run into this problem again, I've deciphered that November 30th falls on a Monday, not a Tuesday. It's all good, tho. We all make mistakes.  ;D

Good for you! Luckily, you've still got tomorrow, just in case the deadline isn't extended.

Jeez, I didn't realize how close the contest was to being over. I usually just vote as soon as the voting thread opens.

Written By: Red Ant on 12/01/09 at 7:58 pm

ABC5 is almost over, and it is making me feel a bit nostagic, especially this W round. My first ABC podium was almost 4 years ago in this round, after 19 consecutive entries. It was sweet. I bring this up because this round was insanely hard to judge, much like that one so many years ago. Bleah, anyway, I could sit here for the next few hours trying to fit more than five parodies into five spots, but it's not happening.

So, here are my votes:

5 points to BAD - sick, man, just sick. "wow" factor off the scale, yo.
4 points to Stu -  David's parody should be recorded for the technical challenge alone. Yours should be recorded because the lyrics aren't by Joan. Maybe Weird Al will call you on the phone. And then my 3 points go...
to Matt, for his "When Will You Go"
2 points to Leo Keough
1 point to Mark Scotti, who ends my nonsensical commentary string of rhymes with "O". Almost.
