Byes Twist

You've been here 6 weeks, and thought you had a pretty good handle on how things go.

Heck, maybe you're a veteran with 100+ plus weeks, and thought nothing could surprise you.

Hi. My name is Gary and this is a post that I'm making! :)

Everyone knows that you have 3 byes to use between the start of the game and the Top 50. Which is still a really long way away.

But what if you are out of byes already, or think you will be soon?

What if there is someone who is confident in their ability to always be able to get an entry in, regardless of the circumstances.

I've got a proposition for you.

If you have a bye and want to give it to someone just notify me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com before the topic deadline for that given week. (notify them as well, otherwise they will assume they are out/almost out! :D)

Maybe you just want to see someone get a little further.
Maybe they are having a hard time with real life right now and you want to make things a little easier on them.
Heck, maybe it's a strategic move to gain favor with someone and look like a good person.

Whatever, this is now on the table from now until the Top 100. Use it wisely!

Green Room - Week 6 - Day 4

I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good!

But then again, you knew that if you've read about the new twist! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/730477.html

If you still doubt it, you won't by tonight! :)


So, how was your weekend? Was the Bunny kind to you or did he throw you in a cave and roll a rock in front of it?

Hopefully, you had the time to write an entry and post it here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/729218.html
if not, you best get to it!! Or you have though, then start reading and commenting!

Vote - Week 6

A few words from clauderainsrm:

The best laid plans of mice and men sometimes end up slipping through a crack or two. Which is what happened this time. I set up the new tribes, and wham - we had a bunch of drops and bye-outs that ended up impacting the set-up more than I would have liked. But, we play the course we are given, not the one we would prefer.

Before we get to the action, it’s time to say goodbye to some people.
Those dropping this week are:

Those who used their final bye in a previous week, and missed the deadline are: iamapremo, illittorate, yuniebaby, ____hejira, alifetolove, phoenixejc, teddyescher, colonelperry42n, inawrites, letthemtakeit, superhappytime

Some old Idol friends, as well as folks that I was really enjoying getting to know. Even a real life friend in this particular batch.

It’s horrible to see them go. But hopefully they will Home Game, and take advantage of the chance to come back into the game later in the season, when the chance comes.

As for the rest of you - Idol marches forward!

This is our first COMMUNITY ONLY vote, which means that if you wish to vote, that means you need to join the community. Fortunately, it’s an easy thing to do! If you want other people to vote for you, that means they need to join as well! :)

Getting people active in the community is always a good thing, and encouraging them to read, comment and vote for their favorites is only going to make their own lives better! :)

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

The poll will close Thursday, April 24t at 10pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!
