Green Room - Week 4 - Weekend Edition

Well this has been a week huh?

In my various travels over the Wide World of LJ I've seen comments of all shapes and sizes and differing opinions on this and that.

One of them stuck out to me. I'll be honest, I'm fuzzy at the moment on who it was and I may have even gotten the quote wrong so I'm going to paraphrase:

That *a lot* of the entries this week are some of the best. That the bar is being raised week to week and how proud people must be to see it.

That interpretation is obviously going to vary from person to person, but as one of the people who can honestly say that they look at every entry, every week (for 6 seasons now) I think there's a great deal of truth in there.

That said, the second part of the paraphrase was that they thought it was a shame that with all of the attention on a particular entry and responses, that these people were being lost in the shuffle.

It's a common enough accordance in every situation. But when you get something a little bigger, you tend to see it happen more often. Fortunately you also get the reaction of people being concerned that it might be happening.

So, that said - what entries out there do you think ARE NOT receiving the attention they deserve?


So, other than that Mrs Lincoln, how was the play? How was your weekend?

How was linking your entry to the Topic post before 8 pm EST today?

Happy birthday to our own elfwench and marjory

Voting - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Each decision we make takes us to the next page. Closer and closer to the end of the book.

Will you open the door and see what is inside or go back out and wait for the others?

Will you ask the stranger for directions or find your own way on foot?

It's Choose Your Own Adventure Time, and I think it's fair to say that this week there was plenty of "adventure".

Five different topics. Which, as per usual, is how the tribes have been reshuffled.

Some tribes are going to be huge. Others tiny. There is an advantage and disadvantage in each.

But for this week, that is how they look. There is an extra tribe for the "byes" this time around. Just to show how one slip, and one decision, could very well change the change the fate of the season entirely.

One open door. One question asked.

One vote cast.

Maybe that vote is going to be yours.

The bottom vote getter in each tribe (except "the bye week tribe" of course) will be eliminated.

Voting closes Tuesday November 17th at 8 pm EST
Good luck to everyone!

Tribal matters, immunity and bye outs

Before I get to anything else I would like to thank our original tribal leaders for doing a fantastic job.

As you may know, they were the ones who selected who was going to be in their tribe over the past few weeks. Each had a different style, but I think they all did the job quite well.

This week, with the topic oriented tribes changes up that. But I wanted to make sure that we took a moment to acknowledge the work, and thought, they they put into it.


Obviously, since no tribe has a single "bye" in it this week, all of them are tied for "fewest byes taken". Which means we go to the next element, which is the tribe that finished the quickest.

The voting poll is here:

By sheer lack size alone it's pretty clear which one that was, since the others kept adding more entries up until the last minute.

So the tribe that is immune this week is "Who's that Trip Trapping Over My LJ?".

You will also be given a special extra benefit this week of being able to decide which of the larger tribes you want to join next week. So please email me at or via LJ to let me know.

Sometimes there is a benefit for picking the road less traveled. Congratulations.


There was a drop this week, that I forgot to mention in the voting poll.

agentkatie1013 had to leave us yesterday in order to concentrate on her education. Hopefully she will be poking her head in every once in awhile though.

Unfortunately we also must attend to the business of the "bye outs". These are the folks who used up both of their "free weeks"/byes and have missed a third deadline.

I hope everything is OK with them all and that perhaps we will see them in the future:


It's a combination of some old friends and fan favorites and some new folks that we never really had the chance to properly meet.
