Vote - Week 0

A few words from clauderainsrm :


Welcome to Week 0 of LJ Idol: Exhibit A, the special mini-season that could.

“Could” do what though, that is going to be the question. Hopefully, the contestants who have decided to take this particular adventure will help answer that question!

This week was a low-key “Introduction” phase, as people settled in and got used to their surroundings, before being driven off the cliff by the pack of wild dogs that I will unleash as soon as they are fast asleep.

As such, it wasn’t mandatory. Which means some people were not able to post an introduction. Which is a shame, because now we don’t know who they are! ;)

However, they are still in the competition, they just don’t get to take part in this particular aspect.

What is that aspect? Well, since they were good enough to Introduce themselves, I figured it was as good time to Introduce something of my own! It’s called a “flex-power”, you can use it ONCE, and have the choice of that use being for a bye (to “skip a week” OR as an immunity. Here’s the catch though, you can only use these powers ON SOMEONE ELSE. You can’t use it for yourself! But whoever has it will end up being one of the best loved contestants in the game. :)

Who will receive it? Well, that’s where this poll comes in!

I’m handing it to the person with the most votes!

And oh yeah, it’s “friends only”, which means only people who have friended the community can vote! Which makes this the best time to spread the news about the mini-season! ;)

The poll will close Wednesday, Jan 23rd at 8pm EST.

Good luck to everyone!

All entries read, considered, and voted on. Most not commented on because I couldn't manage that this week. Now to attempt to sleep between the crying of miserable baby.

Then tomorrow its reply to comments on my entry and start pondering topic 1. Oy!

Since when are there votes and polls in LJ Idol?

Nerds like me
Here's a link to a Google Doc with the participants in case you're wanting to track but not wanting to create a spreadsheet. Just download it and open it in Excel (or other Spreadsheet Program) and save your own copy.

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2y89R5pJCWQVHRGUjRiTEFDUms/edit

I'll leave this up for while for whoever want to snag it.

Good luck to all. I wish I was playing but I'm busy right now.

lilycobalt , your entry appears to be locked.

It's fixed now. I think it automatically re-locked itself after I made a brief edit to the post. Thanks for letting me know.

popping in to say a) hi, b) sad that I missed this but with my dad being sick this weekend and my debit card being used to buy tickets in Bahrain on Sunday the chances of my participating went dramatically down, and c) I probably won't be around for this round, but I really hope to be here for the next

I'm stuck in brainlock with the voting overlapping the writing for the next deadline!

Because reading that many entries takes forever (well, for me it does), and writing a new story on top of that? *dies*
kathrynrose
Jan. 22nd, 2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
Many of the intros are much shorter than the average entry.
halfshellvenus
Jan. 22nd, 2013 07:54 pm (UTC)
But with the quantity, still too much!

Really, my comfort zone is around possibly 15-30 entries. Anything over that starts to create stress! Stress of truly evaluating the writing!

It's probably the Libra in me...
kathrynrose
Jan. 22nd, 2013 07:56 pm (UTC)
How'd you make it through season 8?
halfshellvenus
Jan. 22nd, 2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
By staying up too late and gaining weight from nervous eating. :O

*wish I was kidding*
clauderainsrm
Jan. 22nd, 2013 08:23 pm (UTC)
Nah. I'm a Libra too. :)

halfshellvenus
Jan. 22nd, 2013 08:29 pm (UTC)
I was going to dispute this, what with the cruelty and all, but I see your birthday is 9/28.

Well, let's just say I'm a really typical Libra. And so is my daughter, the Leo. ;)
clauderainsrm
Jan. 23rd, 2013 02:42 am (UTC)
Now you know why I equally oppress everyone! It keeps me up at night if I don't think that I'm being brutal to everyone, in the same way, across the board! :)
kathrynrose
Jan. 23rd, 2013 02:47 am (UTC)
Across the game board?

clauderainsrm
Jan. 23rd, 2013 02:58 am (UTC)
You are all just pawns in the game of Idol! *insert evil laugh here*
kathrynrose
Jan. 23rd, 2013 03:00 am (UTC)
But if a pawn makes it all the way across the board, she can become a Queen. :)
halfshellvenus
Jan. 23rd, 2013 03:53 am (UTC)
Haha!

Actually, I'm a little disturbed by how much sense this makes. :O
audreybuttercup
Jan. 22nd, 2013 08:49 pm (UTC)
I'm a Virgo with Libra rising...I totally feel your pain!
halfshellvenus
Jan. 22nd, 2013 09:16 pm (UTC)
I'm glad someone does!

Without reading deeply enough, I can't be sure I'm being fair. And UNfair is like deep soul pain to me. That's where the stress comes from. :O
maerhys
Jan. 22nd, 2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
Me too, plus I was out of town all weekend. I am going to be commenting on week 0 entries way into week 1.
halfshellvenus
Jan. 22nd, 2013 09:37 pm (UTC)
The worst part is that the vote is due tomorrow night. So, I'll need to be done by then. AND write the entry I haven't yet started. :O

I started out commenting on everything, and quickly decided that I should concentrate on just reading everything first. That way I could give myself time to ponder over the content, instead of using up my time thinking of comments.

I might still go back and try to comment on stuff... but first I'm going to finish my Week 1. And try to keep up with reading/commenting on other Week 1 entries.

I've voted but not left comments as I am a miserable ball of snot right now and just want to sleep...next week I promise to comment!
fourzoas
Jan. 23rd, 2013 04:34 am (UTC)
Wow--my head is spinning from all the lovely! Read 'em all, commented a few as I went along (my words tonight are few), and voted for my faves. Can't wait for the insanity Thursday will bring...
