Vote - Week 14

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It’s come to this. One last poll and Exhibit A will be over.

What have we learned from all of this? How are we different than we were just a couple short months ago when we set out on this journey together?

Maybe you have the answers, or maybe it’s the questions themselves that are the most important thing. Always asking and striving to ask better ones of ourselves and those around us.

Or maybe you just like getting eliminated! I’m not sure what it is, but for whatever reason, season after season - and now into this mini-season, people seem to enjoy bashing their own heads against this particular section of internet wall, and I couldn’t be more happy about that!

Thank you to everyone for a great mini-season! And now on to the pol... wait. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. There was a matter of the Week 13 results that I promised!

For most of the time it was a tight one, but in the last 24 hours or so, one name started coming to the top a little bit more than the others.

For those who don’t know -the system is 1-4, with people ranking their selections in order. So your second favorite entry would receive 2 points, and the 4th favorite would receive 4. The contestant with the lowest overall score ends up on top. So it’s both ranking, with a little strategy thrown into the mix. As usual. ;)

People have been wondering what the “advantage” is, and why that is in quotes. It’s because I honestly don’t know - will this be an advantage? It might give them momentum and confidence. Might it be a detriment? I honestly don’t know. Heck, I don’t even like the idea of “winning a week” in a competition that’s based around lowest vote goes home! I don’t subscribe it to at all. But this is a special occasion, so why not do something a little different, even if I don’t know the ultimate impact.

Because I’ve never announced a winner of anything in a voting thread before!

The person with the best overall score for Week 13 is impoetry!

Congratulations.

Now for the vote that actually matters!

When the poll closes, 1 contestant will win, and the rest will not.

it comes down to this.

The poll closes Monday, April 29th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

This was the toughest vote of all for me. I liked all four entries a great deal, so the only way I could narrow it down a wee bit was place my x's by the ones that worked with the topic best, covered both sides as asked. I probably should have voted for all four, since they were all so good, but... since this is the end, I felt like I should make an actual distinction when voting this time. For all the sense that makes... :(

It's been an amazing season, everyone was so talented. And damn has it gone fast. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. I hope you all come back next go round. Good luck everyone!

As a side note.. I uh.. still don't get what the "advantage" is/was? *sheepish grin*

I haven't read the entries yet, but that's about how I vote, too.

It may or may not be an "advantage" depending on how others see it - if impoetry is seen as the "favorite", others may vote for him, or they may be harder / hold him to higher standards due to being perceived as the "favorite" to win. No telling at this point!

I'm glad someone understood what I was poorly trying to say. :)

With this topic "Why I should win Exhibit A/Why my opponents should win" it was pretty cut and dry, not really open to interpretation like previous topics. And I had asked Gary to define it for me, did he mean "and" or "or" in the center there. He said he was viewing it as an "and", cover both sides of the coin. So that was what I went with, did the entry do that. Seems hardass, I know, but I had no other way to narrow it down since I loved them all.

Thanks for explaining. That makes sense. For some reason I was expecting the win to be an actual thing of some sort. Like a clue to where the hidden immunity idol was. *grin*

LOL - yeah. Hidden immunity idols are running around $480, but even that's not a guarantee of anything!

I'm pretty sure someone is sitting right there, so you can't dig it up!

I'm just going to sit here while you dig. Don't mind me. *whistles annoyingly.

It's been a few weeks since I have been able to find time to read and vote, but I'm glad I got to go through the finals. :D

I have enjoyed much reading this exhibit as well as much writing.
While I do not expect to be an official competing participant for exhibit b I am looking forward to all or the reading and writing. Its really just a limited and set income thing.
