Green Room - Week 15 - Day 5

People have been asking about what the situation is with byes.

Regular Byes expire at the Top 50.

Patreon byes (byes that people get at a specific level of being a Patron https://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027, that can only be given to someone else to use) were set to expire at 50, but I'm going to extend those to 40 as a special "thank you".

Those special "break week" byes that people earned, expire at the Top 30.

If you are doing the math, that means that next week will be the last week that the regular byes can be used. There are two people who haven't used any byes yet. If they can get to that point with them still in pocket, I may have to pull out something special for them!


The vote is going on now:


Or should say VOTES. Because there are two happening as we speak. There is the regular poll, and the Contestant Only vote happening with people sending me their ballots. I've received two already. I haven't responded yet. But I have received them.

This is as good of a time as any to promote an entry that you think needs to be noticed - or to make the case for why *you* should be making the Top 50. Be your own cheerleader! Even if it's difficult, that's something, as a writer, you should always be willing to do. (and it's something that so many writers struggle with)

Good evening! Or, should I say goodnight? I'm going to watch one more ep of Downtown, then I'm going to bed. Not that you care, but I just thought I'd mention it because I can't talk about the two polls. ;-)

With the two polls - it is possible, in theory, to have someone with the most votes in one poll go out because they have the fewest in the other. Which is what makes this all that much more exciting to watch play out!

There is deception here. Far beyond what anyone realizes.

Thank you. I am already having nightmares about my piece being liked well enough to vote for in the regular poll but not being liked top-15 enough by folks to make it through contestant only vote. Way to add some acid to that fire.

I really need to get reading. I'm so far behind.

ummmm... what does that mean for the immunity assets earned early on? Are these considered 'byes' or another animal entirely?

Immunity isn't a bye. You still have to write something. But if you are going to be eliminated, it saves you.

It's good until the Top 50 - and transferable. So if you wanted to give it to someone else this week (or next) to save them, you could. But it has to be 1 hour before the polls close. (to give me time to actually receive the email - as opposed to someone emailing an hour *after* the poll closes. Which they totally would...)

If you've read my latest entry, you'll know how happy I was when I finished this!
