Voting - Week 2

A few words from clauderainsrm:



Trick or treat?

It's not only the demand disguised as a question that children will be screaming at many of you this weekend, it is the question before the voters: Which treats are they going to indulge and encourage, and which entries struck them as more of a trick? Honestly though I think people are going to be hard pressed to find any tricks. This is another batch of entries that is bound to keep you quite busy this weekend with your eyes glued to the screen.

Different people have different tastes. So there really is no way to find out without putting it out there. Some people like the chocolate and other people like - well, they like other stuff. Whatever is left in the bag after you've eaten all the chocolate I guess!

There are some incredible entries this time around, and quite frankly a lot of early byes. It will be fascinating to see how that impacts the results, both now and in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, due to RL, fwtallgirl won't be continuing on this journey with us. But hopefully she will be able to make it out for the Home Game!

We will be losing the bottom vote-getter from each tribe. So make sure to support the entries that you love, and maybe, just maybe, their ghosts won't end up haunting you.*

(*OK, they probably will regardless. These folks strike me as the "haunting" type)

The polls will close Monday November 2nd at 8pm EST. (Note the end of day light savings time this weekend)

As always, you can vote for as many entries, in each tribe, as you want to support. Just keep in mind to hit "submit" after each tribe since they are all separate polls!

Good luck to everyone!

It was too late for the poll - but for the record, there was an entry for animimi http://animimi.livejournal.com/867360.html for anyone who wants to read it.
Ditto for soundscool1 http://soundscool1.livejournal.com/3447.html
I waited an extra half hour before posting, but I am going to put it in the hands of their Tribal Leaders if they want these counted as "byes" or not.
And because all good things come in threes, a certain "I'm going to, I'm not, I'm going to" slipped by edith_jones http://edith-jones.livejournal.com/234829.html - this one is actually on me so no tribal leader decision needed. It won't be counted against her.

With both NaNo and the holiday season coming up it is certainly going to be interesting to see what happens.

That said, it does actually play into a couple of twists I have up my sleeve for the next few weeks. bwahahahahahahaha!!!

Wow. Those are a lot of byes. I almost took one this week, but I decided to suck it up and write an entry anyway. I'm glad I did, although that makes the competition in my tribe a little thicker than I expected so early on...

Wow, look at all those byes! 12, 12, 12, 13, 10, 12 - at least they're pretty evenly divided by tribe!

71 byes for one topic - I think that's a new record!!

Oct. 31st, 2009 02:18 am (UTC)
Sure seems like a lot of byes. Surprised me too.

I think we had harder topics than this one last year (And I am sure we will as the season goes on) I'm surprised so many took byes for this topic.

Maybe everyone is sick...

3-hour downtime in the middle, though.

My apologies to anyone who suffered.

Well Bother!
This one just flat stumped me. I do now have the start of about 7 new short stories though out of trying. :D None of which could work with the topic. I actually ran out of time. I'm on the west coast and I decided that 9pm was my time which would mean I had a whole nother hour. Oops.

Oct. 31st, 2009 03:10 am (UTC)
JMO on all the byes... We only had four days to write an entry. I've been working nonstop the past four days. So I didn't intend to take a bye this week; the time period was just too short. I suspect that was the case for a lot of others, as well.

Not a complaint. Just sayin'. :)

Good luck to everyone!

REMINDER CAPTCHAS in comments
I am still seeing a lot of folks who have captchas, which makes it very difficult for me to leave comments... I *really* like to comment for photodiva02 but I can't....

There are a few others, but can those please double check to make sure they have the captcha turned off in their settings, as it is difficult for those who have limited vision and cannot access audio versions of the captchas.

THANKS!

**

Now back to my readings of these great entries.. but, man, look at all those byes!

Re: REMINDER CAPTCHAS in comments
photodiva02 has a locked journal so nobody can comment unless she counts them as a friend, a handful on entrants this year have this. I will say it's a deterrent to my vote as I'd like at least a chance of conversation on their entry.
