Let's try this again. Because no, I did not intend for those polls to be viewable to all, and am extremely embarrassed that it happened. First time in Idol history and it had to happen tonight! I knew the streak had to happen at some point, I'm just sorry that you had to experience it.
I literally ran out the door after the poll went up, as in "went for a run" and when I got back I checked my email and immediately deleted the polls. I didn't check the comments, so if you said something particularly poignant or witty, I apologize that it's gone forever too.
I've adjusted the poll deadline by an hour to make up for the lost time.
Greetings and hello - but more importantly, “Goodbye”! Because that’s why we are here after all. Not to celebrate each other and exclaim over the wonder of writing, but to eliminate some people! Or maybe that’s just me! :)
We are actually going to be starting the post off with a couple of eliminations due to them missing the deadline to get entries in for Second Chance. Of course, given that they missed the initial deadline as well, I think that it was probably pretty likely that they wandered on. Still, I was looking forward to seeing more of them. I hope all is well, and they can wander "back this way at some point in the future. Goodbye to: ugawa and pipistrelle!
We also had a couple folks who missed the deadline, who will automatically be joining Second Chance Idol next week - making it that much more of interesting place to play in: malruniel11 notodette and witchdollie
Hope all is well with them and that they rejoin us soon!
As for the rest of you, the poll is divided into three. Not the four you were expecting.
One group is the main competition. One is Second Chance Idol - and one is what I told you to be expecting - that there would be consequences of that big tie last week. Since I couldn’t eliminate people last time around, those on the verge are now in the “Sudden Death tribe”. Why? Because it sounds cool.
They are in the same boat as the main competition, they just have a little extra pressure and attention on them being at the top of the polls. If they are eliminated, they will go to Second Chance.
Speaking of, SCI will be losing two people this week.
Sudden Death will also lose two
and the main competition will lose Seven!
So, in other words, it’s business as usual!
The polls will all close Wednesday, May 29th at 10 pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
