Vote - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:

As of mid-day today, some of you had me a little concerned if you were going to end up making the deadline or not! But from what I’ve seen, it was worth the wait!

We did end up having one contestant who didn’t make it - and who has now officially joined the ranks of Second Chance Idol - maerhys

You will be missed, and I hope we see you back here at some point!

As for the rest of you, since you have it all figured out, I’m sure people are going to know what I am going to say next: We will be losing the bottom nine from this poll.

But this is Valentine’s Day. A day of love and a day of traditions. I didn’t pick the date of this poll at random after all.

I am going to show you some of that love and affection, by spreading the joy!

And I am going to celebrate Valentine’s Day traditions, by honoring that very special massacre!

On top of those bottom nine going, we are also having a CONTESTANT ONLY VOTE. So, if you are a CONTESTANT CURRENTLY IN THE MAIN COMPETITION, send me a list of your TOP 20 to clauderainsrm@gmail.com. As usual, we will be losing a range (depending on where the “natural break” of votes happens, between the targets of 5-10 contestants!

I’m pretty sure this means that you had better have brought whatever “A-game” it is that you had. Because I warned you, this week it gets real!

The poll closes Monday Feb 18th at 9pm EST. I will need the contestant only votes by one hour before that.

Good luck to everyone!

So in other words (I just want to make sure I understand this) -- we lose the bottom 9 PLUS whatever natural cutoff number happens to emerge from the contestant only vote?

Nine plus let's-say-five from contestant only equals 14...

EEEP

If I counted right, that's 56 contestants, so if the minimum 14 goes, that's basically 1/4 of us. *bites nails*

So we'll be losing anywhere from 14 to 19 people?
kittenboo
Feb. 15th, 2013 02:53 am (UTC)
So that means we lose between 14 and 19 people unless there's a lot of overlap between the two then maybe it's less. That's how I'm understanding this.

Well, I'm done.
For a variety of reasons I wasn't especially inspired this week. Oh, I didn't "phone it in", but the best I could come up with was a "meta" post, writing about writing... which ain't gonna appeal to a lot of folks.

I might have survived a "basic" round of voting, but this "contestant-only" rule on top of it will finish me for sure.

Well, it was fun while it lasted...

Feb. 15th, 2013 03:12 am (UTC)
Well, I'm happy that I wrote something that I really like! I'm proud of myself for tapping back into that energy I used to have and putting out something that feels wholly me.

Still got quite a lot of reading to do (only made it through 23/56 so far)--but I've already seen some strong writing.

Good luck everyone! Double elimination week? Brutal.

If there's overlap, does that change who gets eliminated? Like, are you eliminating from one vote and then looking at who to eliminate from the other, or are both independent of each other?

I liked the topic, but I'm definitely worrying about whether my interpretation was close enough.

Well, I don't claim that my entry this week is perfect, but I'm happy with it and I will stand by it. I'm not terrified yet, because I've been oddly calm so far this season, but...you can bet that by Monday afternoon I'll be quaking in my boots.

Good luck, everyone!
