Green Room - Week 0 - Day 4

So, how are you doing? No. Seriously, how are you?

LJ has always been home to opinionated and extremely diverse folks - so regardless of where you landed in the US election, I hope you *personally* are doing well.

That said - you have that deadline for the Optional Week 0 topic TONIGHT! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/947581.html is where Newbies link and http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/947738.html for Veterans. Still a lot of names I'm not seeing. But then again, it's optional, so that won't count against anyone.

But still, it's always good to get into the practice of meeting that deadline. The time is coming when you won't have that luxury! (We WILL have byes. I'll announce how many and when they can be used when the time comes).

I'll also be announcing the close of Sign-ups soon. So if you still know people who want in, it's a good time to let them know: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html
(I know I personally have been emailing with some folks who keep asking if there is still time. Yes, but that window is shrinking)

I'm looking forward to the first poll tonight! Even if it's not an elimination.

Vote - Week 0

A few words from clauderainsrm:



Welcome to Week 0 of LJ Idol Season 10!

Or, if this is your first time here, let's start at the top - Welcome to LJ Idol.

I am Gary, your host on this journey.

Week 0 is named that way not only because it's before Week 1, but also because it's more of a "practice round". There are no eliminations.

That doesn't mean though that the "votes don't count". This week, whoever has the *most* votes in the poll will be receiving an undisclosed advantage that may help them later.

Speaking of the poll, when you click on it, you may notice something unexpected. So I’ll come right out and say it - it’s ONLY the newbies. It’s not *all* of them, because this was an optional week. So it’s just the newbies who were brave enough to put themselves out there when they didn’t really have to do so!

You can vote for as many of the entries as you want to support. So make sure to get out there and read, comment and vote for your favorites!

The poll will close Sunday, Nov 13th at 2pm EST.

But what about the veterans? Their entries are located here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/947738.html There are more of those to read, and since it’s a “slow start”, and I want you to concentrate on the Newbies first and foremost, I’ll just tell you to go ahead and start reading these once you are done with the newbies. I just won’t tell you why. :)

Good luck to everyone!
