Voting - Week 26

A few words from clauderainsrm:


For those of you joining us from parts unknown - Welcome to the LJ Idol poll.

Every week, or so, we gather together here to vote. Contestants write their entries, you read their entries, and click the clicky box next to the ones you like the best. You can cast as many votes as you want! All of the contestants at this point are pretty damn good, so not being able to find more than a couple that you like is going to be difficult IMO!

In this case there were two topics. One was "Face to Face" and the other was an "open topic", which pretty much means that they could write whatever they wanted to write. That's one of the reasons why I like open topics - because it gives a bit of insight into what they would come up with without any direction whatsoever.

Since we had two topics, we have two polls. Both of them are independent, so make sure you vote in both.

There will be two contestants eliminated in *both* polls. In case the same people are at the bottom in each, the next lowest vote totals in the second poll will be eliminated. (since the others would have been eliminated in the first poll)

There is also the matter of immunity to be handed out by the jury in each poll, just to make things a little more interesting.

It's getting down to the wire, so each vote is going be just a little more important every time!!!

Before we get to the polls themselves though, we have some sad business to handle.

Due to real life events, our own callistahogan was forced to drop out of the competition yesterday.
Due to, I'll admit, I have *no* idea what is going on other than the journal has been deleted and there was nothing that I could see in his older LJ explaining anything - the legendary markmade missed the deadline, and as you can see by the strike-through, the journal was deleted! Hopefully everything is OK with him. If anyone knows him outside the game, please send him our best and our hopes that everything is OK.

Both of them were amazing contestants this season, and I hope we will continue to see them around in the Green Room and the Home Game!!

That said - CONGRATULATIONS to those remaining, you have now officially made the TOP 25 of Season 6.

These polls will be open until Wednesday May 19th at 9pm EDT. So there is a little extra time to read and vote. I hope you take the time to do so, and to tell your friends to sit down and read as well. There's bound to be something that they enjoy!

Good luck to all of you in getting to that next step.

I came here to ask "what happened to markmade?! :(" and lo and behold, polls! I kind of want to take a screencap too, of everyone tied on 1 vote apiece XD

I'm really sad to hear that callistahogan had to drop out. I've been keeping her in my thoughts since her green room post the other day. Hopefully everything works out for her.

And it's a bummer to discover Mark has gone MIA. Hope that everything is alright with him.

Good luck to everyone. I have to say that the biggest surprise this week is that there wasn't some voting twist! Now to do a ton of reading...

I missed her comment... what was going on?


And I agree with you that the biggest shock is that there was no evil voting twist. lol...

Her comment in the Wednesday Green Room.

Right? It's the ultimate twist: NO TWIST!

Wow... poor thing. I hope she's okay. :-(

And that just goes to show what a truly evil bastard Gary is!!! :-)

Well there WAS a twist. I put listed the topics in the opposite order than I was going to put them in the poll.

It was subtle, but still deliberately evil. :)

Gary = Subtle, Creeping Evil... Yeah, that sounds about right. :-)

Just to verify: you are considering the topics in the order of the polls here, right? Since in the topic post, Open Topic was listed first and then Face to Face, but here the Face to Face poll is above the Open Topic one.

As listed here, correct.

Darn you alphabet, you are a sneaky sneaky bastard!!!! :)

Note to voters: please read my entries in the opposite order of the way the polls are posted! They are two parts of the same story and you will not want to read the second one first!

Note to callitahogan: I am sorry you had to drop out! I hope everything gets better!

Note to markmade: This is part of a plot, right?!

I am really upset about Mark.

wwwaahhh :( I saw an entry by markmade before his entry was deleted :( It was really good too (as if it ever wasn't).


I really hoped it was just a temporary glitch or something but alas. WAAHHH.

Yikes. That really, really, really sucks to hear that callistahogan had to leave the game and that markmade vanished... I really hope he's okay. Two very strong competitors... oh the twists and turns this game takes.

Oh my, I do hope that callistahogan is going to be ok. And what a shock about markmade. I hope all is well with him too.

Must start reading. Was a busy week.

Wow. I really hope markmade is alright. I really enjoyed his entries and hope he does return and play the Home Game.

I am sad to see callistahogan have to leave too :( She really is talented and I am sorry she has some bad stuff going on in her life right now.

*hug*

Thanks for all of the support, guys. It feels so weird to not be in that poll! :(

Anyway, if you want to know what's been going on in my life at the moment, I just posted my Face to Face entry in the Home Game. That explains most everything as best as I am able to explain it.

I am really sad to hear about both markmade and callistahogan. They are two people I always look forward to reading. :(

I hope that both of them are okay. It seems like it has been a rough week everywhere.

I'm gutted about markmade. Another one I thought could win falls by the by. I hope he didn't fall foul of the Curse of Viagra and get hacked and have someone else delete his account maliciously.

That was my first thought. Eerily similar, except that I managed to get something handled before the poll went up.

Also, I have a curse named after me! Woo!

In case the same people are at the bottom in each, the next lowest vote totals in the second poll will be eliminated. (since the others would have been eliminated in the first poll) -- this? This is cold, Gary. :)
