The List of Shame - Week 7

Green Room - Week 7 - Day 4

I was starting to put the Gold Stars together this morning, but then realized that my "they don't have one" list still includes a few people who aren't around anymore! So I'll be going over the list and then checking around to see who's done what that I can honor (since I still want to encourage people to do more and show them that they are appreciated.)

So that will be sometime this afternoon, probably after the poll is posted.

I did see the question: "Why don't you have a forum for the people playing the Home Game?" from yesterday's Green Room. I've answered that question a few different ways depending where my head is at, but it's a good question and for me comes down to fundamentals. I want the focus to be on writers currently in the competition. That is where the only spotlight should be. Anything that takes away from that is just something extra.
I LOVE when people play the Home Game. But I'm not going to give anything close to equal footing. This is the moment for the people in the game, as it should be.


How are you guys doing today?

VOTE! Season 4, Week 7

A few words from clauderainsrm:
Good afternoon and welcome to the last 4 person elimination of 2007.

What does that mean? I’ll go into that tomorrow. But for now I can say that 4 people will NOT be eliminated at any other point in 2007.*G*

Some really nice entries this time around. “Best Friend” proved to be harder for some people than I originally thought it would be… still, it’s easier than some of the ones to come! Bwahahahahaha!

Anyway, let’s get to this.

Voting opens now and goes until Friday Dec 21st at 1pm EST. . Yeah, that’s right, tomorrow. It’s a 24 hour poll!

But wait – there’s more! It’s A COMMUNITY ONLY POLL too! Which means you have to be signed up as a community member to vote. Why? Because it’s fun, it promotes the community, and most important it changes up the voting and helps increase the incline on this hill.

You get to tomorrow and are still in this, you are the TOP 100. . That’s worth celebrating, but it’s also worth a bit of a challenge to get there. Good luck to all of you.

Tech Support Note - Nothing yet. Except that I now have Cheetos and Pepsi. It's healthy eating day here at therealljidol central.

"Bye out" Eliminations Week 7

Two people have "byed out" this week.


Sorry to (at least) one of you that you does not like the over the topic "cheese factor" or the topics. *Shrug* It's not for everyone I guess. Thank you for taking the time to play though.

Some people play to gain some sort of insight. Some play just to be motivated to do something that they might not ordinarily want to do.

I hope people get something out of it. But if they don't, they don't.

I do hope that both of you stick around. I have a feeling one might and the other won't, but I'm happy to have either.

Again, thank you for playing.
