Still need a post from....

-2 this morning.  Brrrr.  And yay for being able to post the list from home!  twirlandswirl will be so excited to see the list up so early.  :)


Hopefully some of these people will have posted by the time I get to work.  (You have about an hour.)  :-)

And the rest of you will hopefully make the deadline too!

The last post I saw was from chather.

A few words from clauderainsrm:
We are 2 people away from the half-way point of the game. Which means the people who received immunity this week, or used a bye, go ahead and pat yourself on the back. You have reached the half-way point.

Who are the people who don’t have to worry this week, and who was it that made sure of that?

jennieknits received immunity from tulip_in_yellow
lordrexfear received immunity from controlld_chaos
lacombe received immunity from moonstone_fae
sircaliban received immunity from n_decisive

As always, congratulations, and remember to properly thank your benefactors.

This is the last time for the tribes… so I will say “make it count”, however it is that you want to interpret that.*g*

The two people with the fewest votes, from each tribe will be going home. Once again, that means we will be losing a total of 4.

This is one of those BIG votes, not only because it sets up the Top 50% of the contest, but there is a big prize for the person who has the most votes OVERALL. You will have one of the biggest powers, and biggest decisions, ever given out to one person in the history of the game! Also, a power will be given to the person with the lowest amount of votes who is not eliminated (and who didn’t have immunity or use a bye, just to make sure that’s clear.).

Voting starts now and will go until Monday Jan 28th at 1pm EST. And oh yeah, let’s make it fun – it’s community only! So you have to be a member of the community to vote! Why? Because this is a big one!

Good luck and remember: the only way to make sure your favorites stay in is to vote!

Tech Support Note: I am cranky today, but I think I did the poll correctly this time.

The bye and drop out...

There is one bye out this week - bella_devil and one drop out cheapdestiny. Both of these I can say with all sincerity that I did not see coming and that these are two folks who were definitely be missed.

That's the bad news.

Here's the good: Anyone remaining in the game has now, officially, made it to the half way point!


(and the poll is coming soon. I sent the text before I found out about the two above... oops.*g*)

Gold Stars - Week 11

I usually post these earlier in the day, but I ran out of time.

People have asked "What are Gold Stars"? It's my way of giving a public pat on the back to people that I think have made a difference in the competition. This past week we saw how much of a difference that could make as 6 people were spared a run-off just because they did enough of the right thing at the right time.

Why do I have them? Because ultimately, I just have one vote and I pretty much vote for everyone. But by giving out these awards I can at least spotlight people that I think need a little extra attention. They might not have the friends lists that others have (some do, some don't), and it has nothing to do with what I thought of their entry that week... I do tend to like their writing as a rule, but it's not what dicates who gets a Gold Star.

It's completely and utterly a civic pride issue, giving an extra boost to someone who has stood out to me, and making sure that everyone else takes notice as well.

I give out 1 Gold Star per 10 contestants. Which is why the first time there were 15. Which is why this time there are 7.

That also means that every week that goes by it will be harder and harder to get them, especially since I DO try to spread them around. (and as previously noted, people on my friends list actually have a *harder* time getting them, because I try to pick them last since I'm used to them which means they have to work harder to get my attention.*g*)

That said, the people receiving Gold Stars this week are:
