If you fell asleep early last night, here's what you missed:
The Results from Week 11: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/521720.html
The New Topic: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/521820.html
The First Home Game post of the season (so all of you folks clamoring for it, now go out and use it!! Show me that it's something you want!): http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/522194.html
and of course, the Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/522463.html
You also missed something pretty important going on in a discussion. It's something that the veterans certainly know and a fair amount of newbies have been discovering: If you have something come up - like LJ not showing the proper votes and you really want to have them confirmed - come to me. You can certainly go to a random Idoler and ask them what they think. Heck, maybe they know the answer! (and often do!) But if you want someone who can actually go in and check your votes vs what you think is in there, I'm the guy for it.
Anyone who knows me, knows not only to come to me with that - but anything else you might be struggling with. I've seen a fair amount of emails this season that have started out with the implication that the person is somehow going to annoy me. As long as you're not emailing me to take your side in some sort of dispute against a fellow Idoler, it's probably not going to annoy me. Then again, if you think it's gotten out of hand, and want to make sure that I'm keeping an eye on it, that's definitely something that I can do. (When I do get involved with those kinds of things, it's usually in a way that points out both sides strengths and weaknesses, with utterly pisses off at least one of the parties who becomes convinced that I sided against them! ;) )
Which is neither here nor there, but occurs to me is a standing criticism in some circles, so I figured that I would mention it. Hopefully, things are going smoothly at the moment and you won't need that sort of advice/assistance.
Some responses take longer than others - but if you are a current contestant, someone who took the time to get involved, and you need something, let me know. That's kind of why I'm here. Granted, I can't guarantee you'll be happy with whatever my answer is, because I can't guarantee what your question or comment will be! :D But if you need me, I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well. I'm not physically there. Unless I've been digitized. In which case I probably have bigger issues than answering emails!
If you were fell asleep early, you probably also missed the ice cream and cake that everyone was given. I'm afraid there's none left. You should know by now that all the fun things happen after you go to sleep!
