Subject: ABC (A/B)RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 03/23/10 at 10:22 pm

ABC 2010
(A and B)


Please note that the rule changes I suggested last year all passed, most of them unanimously, and the others by a wide margin, all new rules will be in bold text like this

- Any parody beginning with either of the current letters is eligible, except parodies that have been entered into any previous ABC competition
- 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 will forfeit all their points for that round


-All letters are to be combined into thirteen rounds (A/B, C/D, E/F etc) and numbers will go by their spelling (IE. "10 Candles" would qualify as a "T" entry being that ten is the spelling of 10).  Symbols will generally be ignored, and go by the remaining spelling instead (IE '**Love' would qualify as an L or '^#% 72' would qualify as an S) eliminating the need for the specialty round at the end of the competition.  In the event that symbols are clearly used to take the place of actual words, the word intended may be used (IE @$$hole can be used in A) and in the event that the name of a song is a symbol, the spelling of said symbol may be used (IE '*' would be asterisk-an A entry)

-3 week entry and voting periods

- 5 points for voting (only applicable to entrants who are required to vote) (also known as the Artistry rule, all those who vote and are in the round will have 5 points added to their score for that round)

-All Scores Count towards your totals for the tournament

-DQ's only dq the current round's score, in other words you will no longer have to sit out the next letter since you will always be forfeiting points when you don't vote (hence the 5 point bonus rule)

-Top entry for each letter (2 per round) makes the year end competition (Exception: if all entries in a given round are of the same letter, or no entry from either letter earned at least one point through voting, the top two overall for the round will be selected for the year end competition)

-No Extensions may be granted due to the length of the new voting periods (if you aren't positive you can vote in the last three days, you should vote early), late entries up until the first vote are at the mercy of whoever is currently hosting the ABC competiton, this is not meant for strictness as much as time, 3 weeks is a lot of time, and extending past that messes up the dates and can cause ABCs to overlap into other contests who may have planned around it to avoid conflicts of deadlines

1st Below Average Dave with 26 Points

2nd Matthias with 23 Points

3rd The Conqueror of Parodies with 20 Points
3rd Abbott Skelding with 20 Points
3rd Red Ant with 20 Points
****************************************************

6th Mark Scotti with 15 Points

7th Andria with 13 Points

8th Tomario with 6 Points

DQ Agrimorfee who forfeits 22 points, based on 17 + his bonus. . .very unusual for Agri. . .now remember, in the new ABC rules, there are no multi round DQs. . .so it only applies to this round, Agri is good for C/D and knowing how reliable Agri is, I'm sure this was a minor oversite

aWWWWWWWWWW fudge brownies.  :\'( :-[

I thought I was on top of everything. Sorry guys. It's probably just as well, as I lost some of my net access again, and would not have been able to adequately judge the DKTOS-able, Youtubeable entries.
