Subject: December 2010 SOTM RESULTS POSTED

Written By: Below Average Dave on 01/10/11 at 4:58 pm

Please note this is my last regular SOTM to be hosted, I will still be doing the hosting of the 2010 Wild Card round and the song of the year contest, but the next regular round, January 2011, will be hosted by Jeff Reuben

Note to new participants: Welcome, and good luck. Please read all guidelines carefully. Especially, please make sure to read all the entries and vote by the end of the month. The SOTM is not so much a contest as a feedback exchange. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, either in this thread or via personal message. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

~~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.

~~You're not allowed to vote for your own song.

~~Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it.

~~Voting continues until the last day of the month ends.

~~Anyone who's participated in a SOTM contest may vote.

~~By entering, you are agreeing to read and comment on all the other entries and vote.

~~Anyone who enters but does not both comment on all entries and vote by the end of the month is disqualified and may not participate next month, while all points will be forfeited, an entrant who has been disqualified may still participate next month if (s)he goes back and comments on all entrants from the month (s)he got disqualified prior to the end of the entry field (s)he is trying to get involved in.

~~In the event of a tie, the parody with the most first place votes wins.
If it's still tied, the parody with the most second place votes wins. and so on
If the points total and votes are identical, it will be left as a legitimate tie

~~Any entrant whose votes don't show a time stamp prior to midnight on the last day of the month (ie. according to the "inthe00's meantime" clock as it appears BEFORE you log in - not a timezone corrected version) is disqualified, no exceptions.

~~A medal known as the FUCA shall be awarded to the highest ranking parody which did not make the month's podium and is of an original song which has not previously earned any medal

Just so everyone knows, I'm the new head of the FUCA awards. So I've decided to completely restart the list. All songs are now elligible once again to receive a FUCA award, but once that song wins, it is then inelligible to win again until someone else takes over the reigns as FUCA awards moderator.

That's up to you, but are you sure you want to do that because it sort of takes the meaning away from the FUCA award in my opinion. . .once the new thread is started, I can easily take the song list from the old one and transplant it into your new thread.

I guess you're right. I should do that. Ok yeah. I'll start the new thread after I do my voting for this current month and you can transfer the list. That'd be a good idea. Thanks Dave.

First--regrettably I had 6 songs I was sure to give points to--it came down to these final two, and after a lot of reviewing I had to pick between 5th and 6th for my final spot (Though no one really did bad this month)

But I have a very honorably mention

Mark Scotti (sorry it was a tough decision for 5th, I always feel the need to mention 6th when it was a tough choice)

1 point to Peter Andersson

2 Points to The Conqueror of Parodies

3 Points to Matthias

4 Points to Abbott Skelding

5 Points to Jeff Reuben

As a reminder this is my LAST regular SOTM as host--Jeff Reuben takes over in 2 hours and 8 minutes, I will start the wildcard round though for 2010. . .and of course SOTY and Author of the Year etc

Just wanted to wish Jeff good luck in hosting, and you all know I'll still be around. . .
