Vote - Week 7

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It was definitely a memorable week, and is about to get even more exciting!

Sure, the topic may have been Bupkis, but that doesn't mean that the entries (or the discussion of entries, and discussion about the discussion of entries!) was!
Some truly interesting and passionate conversations and some great entries came out of it! So kudos to everyone who made this week not your "typical December lull" that so many people worry about.

We did end up losing some amazing writers. But to bye outs: monkeysugarmama, ladyerlynne, kirrst and tralfamadore
and to those who found that they simply no longer could stay in the competition, and needed to make the decision to drop out:
adpaz
attheonesix
beeker121
isis_lives
oldscratchx


There are, without a doubt, some very talented individuals leaving us.

There are also some very talented people still with us!

Which is why we are here.

It's a regular vote, with the contestant with the entry with the fewest votes in each tribe leaving us.

So that is straight forward. it's also the next phase of the game, so I will go ahead and say that when the polls close, there is going to be a few special powers handed out, which should continue to shake things up! That should be fun!

The polls close Monday. December 12th, at 9pm ESt!

Good luck to everyone!

Boo to everyone who either buyed out or had to drop :( Please don't be strangers and visit the GR every so often!

I had a feeling "special powers" was around the corner ;)

Look how tiny Tribe 5 is!

tralfamadore is freaking kickass so that bye out is particularly disappointing to me.

beeker_121 was one of my intersection buddies last season and I just loved working with her. She's fabulous.

All those people are fabulous in one way or another and there's not a single name on that list I can't match with their writing, which is impressive for this early in the season. Sorry to see you guys go!
tralfamadore
Dec. 9th, 2011 03:42 am (UTC)
That's really kind of you, and I appreciate you saying so. I'm disappointed in myself as well. Unfortunately I just couldn't hack it against the pressures of finals, graduation, and getting things squared away for my next great academic pursuit. Hah! I actually sat with a blank page open and watched the last minutes of my Idol life tick down, but....

Well, I had bupkis.

It's been a real pleasure being around for this long, and despite being super-disappointed in myself I'm looking forward to seeing what the remaining contestants will do in weeks to come. And hell, maybe I'll get some entries tapped out for the home game.

If Gary is lame and won't give you one, I've got a spare one collecting dust over here. I'll tell it to leave the dust alone and head your way, if you like! Just don't ask it to show you it's collection. It will keep going all day long.

It is kind of frustrating when you entry is not on the poll correctly, but also, I think those to whom it happens are likely to be read more than usual.

I, at least, usually read these entries first to make sure I do not forget about the mix up later.

I know it doesn't really matter at this point, but I want to tell everyone this was a completely unintentional bye out and I'm really pissed at myself.

I'm a librarian at a university and I adjuct teach an Information literacy course for extra cash and and the past two weeks were the end of our semester. Combine that with usual parental holiday craziness and I have been going nonstop.

I got my final grades in this morning and finally had the chance to click over here. For some reason, I was thinking this week's deadline wasn't until tonight.

What a rotten morning.

Oh no!

Well, hang in there. Gary has started talking about powers, and you know how that goes. Maybe you can get back in.

Wow some really talented people leaving us in the bye outs and the drop outs. This is truly a sad week.

Anyone have any idea how many people have two/one/zero byes left?

Good luck to everyone this week!

If my sheet is correct ... it's telling me that

69 people have not used a bye at all
61 people have used 1 bye
58 people have used 2 byes and have no safety net

That equals 188 though and I think we still have 189 people?
