Vote - Week 11

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It's that time again.

Unless of course you are in Egypt, in which case, you're not seeing this message. Or in somewhere else that is blocking any mention of "Egypt". In which case - Egypt.

Now you really can't see it.

It's the end of another week and the contestants are ready to go with a new batch of entries - and you have some really good reading in front of you.

Before we get to that, we have to say goodbye to a bunch of people. I've been asked if this season has had more drops and bye-outs and my response has been "This season I'm talking about them all in one place." Whereas before they would be scattered around. Plus, let's be honest, this season was designed to lose a greater number of people early on.

It just always stinks to see them go. Knowing it will happen, and it actually happening are two different animals.

So, before we get to the fun stuff - the sad stuff.

We say goodbye to the people who sent notice that they were dropping out:
ilvack, gratefuladdict and worldofcharlie

and the people who bye-out (eliminated due to using up all their byes and missing this deadline):
angelic_mystic, courtney_ke, crimsonplum, ellistrae, kehlen_crow, mrsrachelholmes and mezzogiorno

Goodbye to all of you. I know the circumstances for a few, and hope that things get a little less hectic and stressful. For the rest, I hope that all is well.

Now to the business at hand - the poll.

Once again, there were a couple people who were brought over from SCI and some shifting around of some folks.

As usual, the contestant with the fewest votes for their entries from each tribe will be eliminated.

So make sure to get out, read, comment (everyone loves to get comments!) and vote for your favorites!

The poll will close Tuesday Feb 1st at 9pm EST.

Good luck to everyone!

Is this the greatest number of byes in one week thus far?

:squints at poll:

Geez, people are dropping like flies. This makes me sad :(

I don't think so. Only 20 byes were taken this week, and I'm pretty sure there was one week where 30+ byes were taken.

...Kinda glad I had to take a bye this week now that I see I've moved up a tribe >.>

Sorry to see people leaving us. Real life can suck sometimes.

Ah, good to move up in the world, is it not?

Tis a shame that those who have been faced with real-life challenges must find themselves with no more time to write; they shall be missed.

Damn, damn and damn again. Really sad to see those folks going. The second suckiest part of this game... the first of course being eliminations.

OK, if my counting and adding and subtracting is correct, here's the list of tribes with live entries, byes, and total people:

Tribe 1 -- 14 live entries, 4 byes (18 people)
Tribe 2 -- 21 live entries, 1 bye (22 people)
Tribe 3 -- 20 live entries, 6 byes (26 people)
Tribe 4 -- 20 live entries, 4 byes (29 people)


Then shuffled in ascending order according to number of live entries this week:

Tribe 1 -- 14 live entries
Tribe 3 -- 20 live entries
Tribe 4 -- 20 live entries
Tribe 2 -- 21 live entries


Total participants left in the season as of this poll: 95.

Why the hell did I move up a tribe?

Gary, do you want me out that badly? :P

I was afraid he was going to bump me up again because I won my poll last week. And the week before, which I got bumped up for (then again, I didn't merely win that poll). The idea of going up to the higher tribes scares me!

Egypt
In re the references to Egypt, I of course posted at least three LJI entries from Egypt last season, so it's not implausible that Egpytian internet outages might affect LJI! Also the current turmoil there really hits home for me because not only was I there of course but I have a good friend I made there and now I can't get ahold of him due to the government blocking the internet and cellphones. ::frets::

Ack to those leaving us! I lost a couple really good friends in there and that makes me very sad :(

I really wish I could have gotten my entry in...

Good luck everyone. I'll still obsessively poll watch even though I'm sitting out this week.

Jan. 29th, 2011 11:14 pm (UTC)
So Gary, is this top 100? Or given that people are still coming in as well as going out is that being reserved until we're certain that adds won't push us back over?

Also, that's a lot of folks to lose in one week. Ouch.

We lost some really great writers this week :( I'm going to miss you guys.

With 1/3 of my tribe sitting out this week, I'm really sweating it.
