Green Room - Week 4 - Day 4

It's the dreaded Week 4. The time that everyone has been afraid of, due to people who had "real life" come down on them in the early weeks running out of byes.

Many (including myself) figure there will be a mass bye-out today. On the flip side of this, I've seen a few folks who are on that edge post this week, which is awesome - hopefully we will continue to see them around in the weeks to come!

Unfortunately, today is also the day that real life takes out liregran who will be leaving us this week.

For those who still need to post their entries (or those who want to read ahead): http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/723579.html

Once you have done that, there are entries that need some feedback over on the Killing Floor: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/724183.html

So go check those out.


What has gotten you riled up today? #outrage

Vote - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Welcome to LJ Idol: Week Bye!

OK, I’m joking. But you could be forgiven if you looked at the poll and thought that!

The good news is that you can pay more attention to the people who submitted this week. The bad news is that the rest are one step closer to the dreaded “bye out”. Some people this week took byes due to real life. I wouldn’t doubt that some looked at the coming bye out and took one strategically. Both have the same results, with the same risks.

We knew this week was going to be a brutal one. The next few will be, if my predictions hold true. But once we get through this pocket, there are some amazing writers this season who are going to be that much stronger, and that much closer to winning!

Unfortunately, in order to get there, some eggs must be broken. In this case, some people must be eliminated due to using their three byes, and failing to post again.

This time it’s especially difficult because although we didn’t get to see much from them - some are veterans. Not just “veterans” but some of my personal favorites who I was really excited about their return. Heck, there is one vet playing under an alt on this list, who would have delighted quite a few folks who remember her. But alas, that’s not the way it played out.

So, leaving us this week are:

aluragayle, anghogan26, b_coy, carpinteria_pen, heatherenchantd, Jen Todd, kbr_shorts, lapinquichante, lebonheurbum, lilly_rose, Maria Fox Christy O'Brien, mask_and_dagger, mezzogiorno, mme_furiosa, pipistrelle, randomtaleaday, sneakishfrog, steempunked, subtleheart, thesammichfox, wyliekat

Thank you to all of you for coming out. I hope that we will see you in the Home Game - and that you will take advantage of a chance to re-enter the game, and show us what you’ve got, when it comes!

As for the rest of you, there are still going to be eliminations.

The lowest vote-getter from each tribe will be eliminated.

The poll will close Thursday, April 10th at 10pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!
