Vote - Week 2

A few words from clauderainsrm:


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!

Good riddance of the filth I posted previous. Just kidding. In that time I've managed to read through all the entries and make a list of all the ones I want to re-read. And all the ones I like.
So much for getting to bed at a reasonable hour :P

So there is a kitten living in the engine of a car next to my house. It's very cute to look at. I'm a little concerned about its choice of residence though. I'd carry it home with me, but it seems to be feral.

Suffice to say, I missed all the action, since I was out trying to lure the kitten with food.

Tuna worked to get my kitten out of a similar situation! That's how I wound up with her - friends of my aunt got her out and needed a home for her. I hope the kitten you're talking about has a similar happy ending!

So I'm going to make a big old post about this in tomorrow's Green Room, but if anyone happens to come by and see this before then....

I finally got the ovaries to read the comments on my entry.

Thank you. Thank you so much. You guys - you guys are so awesome, and I don't know where I would be now without Idol.

Thank you.

No worries -- it was basic poll stuff. A handful of people said good luck, someone said AdoptedWriter's entry has a random dot after the link, someone noticed the 'viewable to all' problem, there was a thread discussing whether you'd be able to change it or have to delete the poll, someone posted an image of something (sorry, too big for my phone screen, LJ's new formatting does not appear to understand the concept of a mobile phone, so things do not stay properly in the comment boxes; which is silly, because if I wanted to have trouble viewing the site properly, I'd have used the mobile page), several people lol'ed, someone asked for a list of who wrote what topic, and one or two people said something about how many entries they had read. (I think all those someones are different people, but am not sure.)

I think the dot after AW's link is the only thing that's still relevant?

Also I think it's amazing the number of polls you've posted and this was the first it happened. *hugs* That's an impressive track record.

Now I *wish* that I had read the comments, so that I could have fixed that one! Argh! Seriously, two in a row???

Note: This was also the first time posting a poll from what is going to be my new residence. So, there are some kinks to work out on the timing issues.

FYI, adoptedwriter's link is broken; there's an extra "." at the end.

Majorly headdesking over here. Spent the day thinking it was Sunday and that I could write my entry tonight. Way to lose track of days, self. Way. to. go. *headdesk* Ah well, on to SCI I go! Best of luck to everyone this week!

I woke up in the middle of the night (JST) and realized, to my horror, that my entry was due Tuesday morning (my time), not Tuesday evening. I feel your pain.

Oddly enough, despite having my girlfriend here and parties to go to and much, much alcohol, I managed to read everything. Didn't comment as much as I would have liked, but there was some great stuff out there (would y'all quite being so damned talented????).

Of course, I'm not entirely sure how poignant or witty any of my comments would have been. Many beers (and much wine. And possibly more than a little apple pie moonshine) make for one very silly and not entirely coherent Alicia. At least I ushered in my 4th decade in style. ;)

And, no, I don't feel slighted in the least that Gary didn't wish me happy birthday. Nope. Not one little bit. ;P

Happy (belated) birthday! You don't look a day over 3rd decade - how do you do it?

Drunken comments are typically amusing, though!

If my math-fu is right, this is how the topics broke down (note that a few folks didn't state outright what their topic was, which drives me batty, so I had to surmise):

Ummm: 27 entries
1337: 21 entries
Na Wa Ooooo: 16 entries
Write About Indians: 11 entries

That totals 75, so it ought to be about right.
