Vote - Week 9

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It's time for the reason why we all are here.

No. This isn't an open bar. That's over on the other side.

This week was all about Marching Orders and it's time to see what the voters out there in Vote-land thought. From what I have seen, it's another really good week, so it's going to be even more important to get out and support your favorites.

Before we get to the poll, there is the usual round of bad news. 2011 continues to take it's toll as people get back up to speed. Unfortunately, for some, it just wasn't able to happen here.

Some really great people, and writers in that group. I was hoping to see more of them. But that is the way it works out sometimes.

As for the poll itself, the tribes have stayed the same - and it is still the lowest vote total from each of them are eliminated. As we continue toward the Top 100, the pressure continues to racket up as more and more people start stepping up to the plate and hitting that ball pretty darn hard.

The poll closes Tuesday Jan 18th at 9pm EST.
Good luck to everyone!

Oh man at the drops :(

All were names I'm sad to see go...but horosho is one of my good, good friends from outside idol. I really had hoped to see him go far in this game. He's a great guy!

Thanks hun. Right back at ya :) I look forward to keep reading your entries! I've been crap about commenting on everyone's posts this season, but there's been some great stuff written!

Ahhh! Darn early deadline. Oh well, I'll still be sticking around :)

The numbers from this week, from just counting up the tribe lists in this post.

This list shows the number of people in the tribe and then the count of 'live' entries and byes within those tribes:

Tribe 1 -- 21 people (18 live entries, 3 byes)
Tribe 2 -- 34 people (29 live entries, 5 byes)
Tribe 3 -- 32 people (25 live entries, 7 byes)
Tribe 4 -- 26 people (20 live entries, 6 byes)


And then, the tribes in ascending order according to number of live entries:

Tribe 1 -- 18 live entries
Tribe 4 -- 20 live entries
Tribe 3 -- 25 live entries
Tribe 2 -- 29 live entries


Total number of participants (from these tribe listings): 113

January has been hard on folks still I see. What a bummer indeed.

Ah crap, I missed the deadline. *facepalm* I was almost done with my entry and I came over here to check. Serves me right, I guess. Although if the deadlines keep getting shorter, I'm gonna have a problem...

So if the deadline gets moved up, shouldn't the topic get posted sooner too, or is it part of the challenge to have progressively less time to get your entry in?

It would seem to me that the sooner you get your entry posted, the better off you are because not everyone has time to read every entry.

Yeah, I figured that out early on. I generally had been trying to write as soon as I came up with something. It doesn't matter now anyway.

It can also work backwards - people get to see your work and ideas spread.

I understand what you are saying, but I would think after this far most people would have at least checked everyone once. While we all have our bad days, I can usually tell if I like the writing from reading a single entry. I then gravitate toward my favorites and go to them first each week. Of course it is still possible to miss someone, but I mean, you either got it or you don't.

remember that the polls just went up! a lot happens in that last little while.

But I understand that it is disheartening - heck! in my own tribe I have equal votes with someone that has byed!!!!!!

haha! no I just read everyones this week because I am supposed to be writing my thesis and I am struggling :-) so of course reading all the idol entries went to the top of the list!

Well as far as the deadlines go, Gary *does* post the topic link in e ery GR, so if you forget what the deadline time is, it is very easy to go check - it isn't always going to be 5pm or whatever! He likes to be sneaky and keep us all on our toes, and now with trying to coordinate SCI probably even more so!

At least you didn't bye out this week!

omg! I read and commented on everything!!!

(no, am I not practising procrastinatory techniques. what makes you think that?)

I'm crap at commenting, as always, but a lot of great entries this week!

If anyone's curious about the entry I was planning to post for this week, you're welcome to my memory. Hopefully the deadline will be easier for me next season!

As it stands right now, this is about the first time I've been online in the last month due to circumstances beyond my control. That being the case, it's necessary that I withdraw at this point, since I can't get on to post. I'm getting a very rare moment of internet access to let you guys know that I've had a ton of fun this season. I'll definitely be writing Home Game entries as soon as I can get a reliable connection again - and I'll be entering next season, too!

Y'all have fun, good luck to everyone, and I'll see you again as soon as I get a connection back!

I'm sorry. I just couldn't come up with anything at all to work with this one. It was just a huge block of "...no." Even reading people's didn't kick me into something.

Hopefully this week I can come up with something that doesn't have controversy written all over it like the last couple I did!
