Vote!! Season Five Week Four!

A few words from clauderainsrm:
Hello there and welcome to this week’s poll in which we determine who will be eliminated and who will have the same sort of satisfaction of a job well done as if they had been cooking for an orphanage!*G*

There’s a bit of a twist this time around though. It is our first general *community only* poll. This means you have to actually have to join the community to vote! It’s also the first one posted by n_decisive so be gentle!*g*

This is also a special Sigrid’s Birthday poll. Ok, maybe it’s not, but I wanted to mention her birthday again!!!

The usual rules apply: Vote for as many or few of your favorite entries as you feel like supporting. The person with the fewest votes in each tribe will be eliminated.

Unfortunately the following did not turn in entries this week and are leaving us before the poll even opens:

lavendergem
brownstudies
whirled and
afterthree.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out there were a couple people that I thought were going to go quite far in there. . . I’m sorry to see you guys go and I hope everything is ok, and that we still get to see you around.

As for the rest of you. . .

Voting starts now and will close on October 20th at 1pm EDT. Good luck and may the force be with you. . . or at least close by in case you need it!



TECH SUPPORT NOTE: Due to an error, there are a entry links that go to bye announcements. VOTES FOR THOSE CONTESTANTS, anjala, firedemonlover and rejeneration- like votes for anyone else taking a bye- WILL NOT BE COUNTED. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Is there something wrong with the polls? it's just giving me results on them all instead of the ability to vote.

It's a community only vote, so you'll need to join the community before it'll let you vote in the poll.

Well, it looks like we've all made the Top 150 at this point, w00t! :)

I've read about 20 entries, there are 22 byes, that means I've got about 108 or so entries to read this weekend... oy!

Community only makes me nervous! I hope I can hold my own, because I don't know where my voting love comes from. lol

Good luck to us all!

it is nerve inducing, but you're doing great so far (I know it's early) and I think it's exciting. Although I know I'm just going to be more and more tempted to refresh through out the weekend than usual. : P

firedemonlover should be marked as a bye on the poll.
norda
Oct. 17th, 2008 06:09 pm (UTC)
Voted!

My inner sociologist will be very intrigued by my results this week, since I've been trimming people off what LJ calls a "Friendslist" and I call a reading list, and I'm planning to NOT post a "Vote For Me" post.

My words and pictures will have to stand on their own.

I'm too afraid not to post a link, but I'm not sure if that actually would make a difference anyway. lol It's just the routine and things, I guess.

I've voted in two tribes.... I'll hit the other two tribes later, I really should get some work done yet today.

I was just thinking about voting and realizing the further you are from voting for half of the people the value your vote has one way or the other.

Statistically, if you vote for all but 2 people it does more damage to those two people by just raising the bar for everyone else evenly. Conversely if you only vote for 2 people then it gives those two a boost. So, really, for your vote to count most you should either vote for a whole lot of people in a tribe or very few. Voting for about half dilutes your vote.

Maybe I'm not the first to have this realization, but it just hit me and I thought I'd share.
