Vote!!

A few words from clauderainsrm:
After a week of ups, downs and some incredible entries about things folks tend not to say out loud too often - we come to something everyone can agree on – that it’s time for voting!!

I hope everyone takes the time to read all the entries and leave comments. The act of putting yourself out there can be scary at times. But like it or disagree with it more than you have ever disagreed with something before – I’m sure the writers would appreciate any feedback that you have.

There has been a little reshuffling of the tribes based on performance last week, (No one moved more than 1 tribe up though.) which will continue to happen through the season to keep things interesting! Last week taught us how *1 vote* can make all the difference! Make sure to get out to support your favorites!!!

Edited to Add: The bottom vote-getter in each tribe will be eliminated. (Would have been added sooner, but Tech Support went to Culver's.)

Unfortunately, the following people did not post entries this week and have been eliminated:

blackfroggy
java_fiend
leinahtane
nsoroma79
sanity_denied

We’re sorry to see you go! Please stick around in the Green Room and play the Home Game!

Voting starts now and will close on Monday October 6th at noon EST. Good luck to everyone!


Tech Support Note: As always, if I screwed something up, please email kithan@livejournal.com and I'll note it in the body of the post.

Sad to see so many people out this early :(

On another note, Tribe 4 is starting to feel small and cramped really quick! We're moving into mandatory A-Game territory pretty early, time to roll up the sleeves and fight the good fight :)

How odd that someone saved from the run-off dropped out, and that another person who won the run-off dropped out. Interesting.

Getting ready to cast my first round of votes. I've still got 45 more entries to read, but that will be done as the weekend progresses. Should have voted on them by Sunday night.

I'm curious about the decision to shrink Tribe 1 as a result. Tribe 1 is hypothetically the little-league, right? Part of that was safety in numbers. But now tribes 2 and 3 are huge and tribe 1 is the second-smallest.

If you're moving people into harder groups because they're more popular, but not moving people into easier groups because they're less popular, I'm not quite sure how that works out. It strikes me as potentially punishing the best writers by putting them in the wrong weight class just because they've been winning fights, while also punishing the rest of Tribe 1 by shrinking it and worsening the odds.

Demoting the unpopular writers (if it's due to lack of skill) would at least leave a consistent statistical cushion for those left behind in Tribe 1. At that point there are two levels of the game: do you win, and which level do you settle at? This could either be interesting or very very drama-prone. Make sure you have clear and preferably published guidelines for how tribe adjustment decisions will be made if you follow this through.

(I am not a contendah, and not friended or affiliated with anyone below class 5. I am, however, a rules and statistics geek. This is simply an observation of rules mechanics.)

I was kinda wondering that too. Not that I mind being moved up or anything, but --

A) if it's all the popular writers being moved into Tribe 3, they're gonna get voted out earlier than they would have just because of the numbers

and B) all the people with less votes being left in Tribe 1/2, by the time it gets down to smaller numbers (them vs the best writers in Tribe 3), the Tribe 1/2 people kinda have no chance so it's like, why bother?

ETA: right now I kinda feel like it's unfair to the Tribe 1 people -- they've got like a 1/10 chance of being voted off while the Tribe 3 people are actually safer because of numbers...
