Welcome to LJ IDOL Week 0 Poll.
Your first thought is probably along the lines of "Why are we having a poll if it was just Introductions?" or possibly "What is this guy doing now??" or if you are have played mutliple seasons "I wonder if there is anything tasty in the cabinet? I should go check."
We are having a poll because I thought it would be nice for the newbies to have a sample poll. It helps me shake out some of the dust build up from months of "having a life" and gives you an idea what to expect. (As well as a chance to make sure that I have everyone's name correct! I did this one myself so let me know if I messed something up so I can fix it for when it counts!!)
The group is divided into 4 tribes, in 4 separate polls.
Is this the number and division that you will see next week? I wouldn't count on it.
Most of the general voting FAQ stuff is handled, oddly enough, in the FAQ: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/256176.html
I was going to handle it in the appendix, but I figured with my luck it would just end up needing to be removed.
Some general info though: This is an OPEN POLL. If you have an LJ, you can vote.
Yes, you can vote for as many or as few, people as you want.
This is a test of the voting system - but normally the folks with the least amount of votes would be eliminated, the number being whatever I announce for that week.
The people with the most amount of votes - they have more votes than everyone else that week. ;)
(* unless I announce special stuff going on with the poll. Which does happen from time to time, but we will get there when we get there.
Oh, hey, we're there. It's a meaningless poll as far as elimination goes BUT there is going to something handed out at the end of it that might end up making a difference in your game. Or maybe not. :)
There were a couple people who forgot to link their entry. This week I went looking for them. Most of time I will not. So make sure you remember to link it.
I listed the folks who did not turn in Introductions at the bottom. On one hand, they aren't in this poll. On the other - they get to be listed in a special place at the bottom! *shrugs* We'll see how that works out!! ;)
Thank you so much for taking the time to come out and support your favorite writers!! Let's get this thing started!!
Voting closes tomorrow, Thursday October 15th, at 7pm EDT.
Good luck to everyone!!
