Vote - Week 15

A few words from clauderainsrm:

As we head toward the Top 50, things are going to get a little more crazy. By which I mean, we are getting to the point where I’m going to start kicking all you damn hippies off my lawn!

And by “head toward the Top 50”, I mean barrel into it, knocking it over barely stopping to grab it’s lunch money.

Before we get into the business at hand, we have, well, some business at hand. Mainly, saying goodbye to someone who is byeing out this week. mossmonday fought back into the competition through Second Chance with some great songs. But unfortunately, when you are working without the safety net of having byes - all it takes is one wrong step and you are out… I would have loved to see more from you, and I hope we will be seeing that for the Home Game! (and you, of course, hanging around and cheering for your personal favorites!) I really think you helped shift the game into a new and interesting direction, I hope you will stick around to see where it goes next!

As for the rest of you - well, here’s a poll.

Take a look at it. Isn’t it nice?

It’s a nice poll. All welcoming and friendly. That poll wouldn’t hurt a fly.

That poll will be eliminating 2 contestants.

But before it can do that, there is another vote happening. A Contestants Only vote.

So if you are a current contestant, you are going to be looking at that poll and sending me (clauderainsrm@gmail.com) a list of your *top 15* from it. Don’t bother to rank them but definitely alphabetize them!

There is always a question of “Can I vote in this?” To which I am responding? Is your name in that poll? If so, you are a current contestant. In which case, yes, you can vote. If it is not, then no, you can not vote in the *contestants only* portion.

Everyone can still vote in the regular poll.

The Contestant Only vote will be eliminating between 3 and 5 contestants. (depending on where the vote clevage breaks)

The results from the Contestants Only poll will be counted first (for those wondering). Which means that you won’t know who will already be eliminated from the poll… that should make things a little more interesting!

In other words - remember to READ, COMMENT, VOTE and TELL PEOPLE ABOUT IT so they can do the same! Your favorites are counting on you. Yes, you… yeah, I know, I tried telling them they were going to be disappointed, but if they haven’t figured that out by now…

The Contestant Only poll closes Sunday, April 23rd at 7pm EDT

The regular poll closes Sunday, April 23rd at 8pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

Eeeep. I am a little terrified. Even if I had a feeling a contestants-only poll had to be coming. Good luck to all of us!

Gary I am so confused! Please tell me like I'm three.

The contestants only, and the regular poll are for the same entries? Those surviving the contestants only poll will then be judged a second time in the regular poll?

You've got the basics.

Two different groups are voting at the same time, on the same entries.

General voters are voting in the poll. Contestants are sending me their ballots. (Obviously, if you are contestant, you can vote in both)

The contestant only poll closes first - so those results become official before the general poll closes, and it's like they aren't on the poll (because they are "already gone")

Thank you, but now I'm terrified! (Teeth chattering!)

I am still confused. I have to mail you my list of top 15 as well as vote in this public poll open to all. Right?

Yup, the contestants get to vote twice this week. (Sadly contestants get to be voted out twice this week too.) Vote once in the list of 15 to Gary, and then vote again in the public poll for as many people as you want just like always.

I suppose you don't have to do both, but you may as well.

That's helpful. Thanks :)

So the votes we see in this more public poll are not necessarily all the votes we may have, but we still will not know if it's enough votes to go on until the private, contestant-only votes are also figured in?
Kinda like voting on DWTS only in reverse I'm thinking?

So we must first go through the fire of being judged by our peers before considering the overall popularity contest. Interesting (and nervous-making -- I know you're proud of this)

There are so few byes this week, which makes sense - they may or may not work after this. It's lovely (more people in this mess with us) and I'm a little jealous of the people who held on to them this long.
