Vote - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:

As of mid-day today, some of you had me a little concerned if you were going to end up making the deadline or not! But from what I’ve seen, it was worth the wait!

We did end up having one contestant who didn’t make it - and who has now officially joined the ranks of Second Chance Idol - maerhys

You will be missed, and I hope we see you back here at some point!

As for the rest of you, since you have it all figured out, I’m sure people are going to know what I am going to say next: We will be losing the bottom nine from this poll.

But this is Valentine’s Day. A day of love and a day of traditions. I didn’t pick the date of this poll at random after all.

I am going to show you some of that love and affection, by spreading the joy!

And I am going to celebrate Valentine’s Day traditions, by honoring that very special massacre!

On top of those bottom nine going, we are also having a CONTESTANT ONLY VOTE. So, if you are a CONTESTANT CURRENTLY IN THE MAIN COMPETITION, send me a list of your TOP 20 to clauderainsrm@gmail.com. As usual, we will be losing a range (depending on where the “natural break” of votes happens, between the targets of 5-10 contestants!

I’m pretty sure this means that you had better have brought whatever “A-game” it is that you had. Because I warned you, this week it gets real!

The poll closes Monday Feb 18th at 9pm EST. I will need the contestant only votes by one hour before that.

Good luck to everyone!

So in other words (I just want to make sure I understand this) -- we lose the bottom 9 PLUS whatever natural cutoff number happens to emerge from the contestant only vote?

Nine plus let's-say-five from contestant only equals 14...

EEEP

If I counted right, that's 56 contestants, so if the minimum 14 goes, that's basically 1/4 of us. *bites nails*

So we'll be losing anywhere from 14 to 19 people?
kittenboo
Feb. 15th, 2013 02:53 am (UTC)
So that means we lose between 14 and 19 people unless there's a lot of overlap between the two then maybe it's less. That's how I'm understanding this.

Well, I'm done.
For a variety of reasons I wasn't especially inspired this week. Oh, I didn't "phone it in", but the best I could come up with was a "meta" post, writing about writing... which ain't gonna appeal to a lot of folks.

I might have survived a "basic" round of voting, but this "contestant-only" rule on top of it will finish me for sure.

Well, it was fun while it lasted...

Well, I'm happy that I wrote something that I really like! I'm proud of myself for tapping back into that energy I used to have and putting out something that feels wholly me.

Still got quite a lot of reading to do (only made it through 23/56 so far)--but I've already seen some strong writing.

Good luck everyone! Double elimination week? Brutal.

If there's overlap, does that change who gets eliminated? Like, are you eliminating from one vote and then looking at who to eliminate from the other, or are both independent of each other?

Well, I don't claim that my entry this week is perfect, but I'm happy with it and I will stand by it. I'm not terrified yet, because I've been oddly calm so far this season, but...you can bet that by Monday afternoon I'll be quaking in my boots.

Good luck, everyone!

I must admit to fear. I worked pretty hard on my entry this week, even though it's short, and I'm proud of it...the comments are good, but the votes (so far, which I know isn't really a good indication of the outcome until later) are low. I'm worried that YA just doesn't appeal to many folks here, but if I go out this week, at least I know I wrote what I love to write and the process kick-started a new story I can mold into something bigger.

I don't think you can tell from votes at this point. It changes so much.

WHERE WAS GONDOR?

For whatever reason, when things catch me unawares, I like to put the onus on Gondor. I hope that when the way is shut for any of us (and I have a sneaking suspicion one of them might be me,) that we will remake our broken blades and we crownless shall once more be kings! Actually let's just all put on our crowns and have a king party. *flourishes*
jem0000000

GONDOR WAS TOO BUSY HAUNTING THE ORC CHILDREN'S NIGHTMARES.

I love the extended metaphor and the way it ties so nicely into SCI here. :)

Quick question for you - do you want the votes ranked, like 1-20 with #1 being our super favorite? Or just, you know, 20 names in an alphabetical list?
comedychick
Feb. 16th, 2013 05:08 am (UTC)
Usually when he does votes like this, it's easier for him to calculate if the list is unnumbered and alphabetical.

I'm actually really sad to see that I am second from the bottom in the public vote :( I have lots of comments on my entry and all of them are positive and "I like what you did", but not enough to vote for me, I guess.

The horrible thing is, I know I can write well.

I'm really bummed now. Going out of town with my husband for the rest of the weekend, probably won't get home until Monday night after the votes are done.....probably for the best.

Feb. 16th, 2013 05:03 am (UTC)
A lot of people haven't voted yet, so those totals will change before Monday. It's better not to look at the poll this early. *hugs*

Have fun on your trip!
