Vote - Week 25

A few words from clauderainsrm:


Part writing competition. Part out-of-control roller-coaster. LJ Idol is a writing experience like no other.

Every poll is someone’s first time experiencing LJ IDOL, especially as we get closer to the Top 50 - so if this is your first time here, welcome!

Each week I post a topic (or in the case of this week multiple topics for them to select from), they write an entry and submit it for the poll.

The topics this week were: Intersubjectivity, Shibusa, Rapture of the deep, Captcha the flag and Overwatch

I post the poll and, in the words of Jeff Probst, the power shifts to the hands of the Jury. In this case, that is you, the voters.

Read the entries, comment on them (who doesn’t love feedback) and vote for your favorites to stay in one more week!

Then we repeat the process until we are down to one person left standing - our Winner, the LJ IDOL.

The poll is broken down into two groups (or tribes) - the main tribe and a “Redemption Tribe”. The contestants in the Redemption Tribe ended up there when there is a tie for who will be eliminated. One bad week is all it takes to go home, but with Redemption, if you hang on through that bad week, you still have a chance!

Two contestants from Redemption and three from the main poll will be eliminated this week. So if you read something that you love, make sure to tell people about it, so that they can have the chance to read it, and fall for it as well!

Unfortunately, we had a few people who had to drop out this week. When I say that they are “extremely talented” and that they will be “greatly missed”, that’s an understatement. I could have actually skipped that and just given you the names - and those who have been here before today would have been able to fill out that information for themselves.

Goodbye to kathrynrose, witchwife and xo_kizzy_xo

Thank you so much to all of you for coming out this season. I know that Real Life flattened you, but I hope that you are back in the swing of things soon. I really hope that we will see you continue in the Home Game.

(For those who don’t know - the “Home Game” is when someone who isn’t a part of the competition (either from elimination or you just didn’t get involved in time) can share their entry with the group. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/795130.html )

As for the poll it closes Thursday October 23rd at 9pm EDT!

So make sure to support your favorites!

Good luck to everyone!

You really haven't messed with the "tribe" membership much this season. It used to be interesting when you changed up the tribes and constituted them on different grounds every so often to keep things interesting, esp since people tended to get closer to the members of their tribe in any given week (lord knows why).

We've had one great big tribe here for unusually long.

Yeah, I was halfway expecting tribal divisions at some point.

Although it is safer being in one big tribe, so there's that.

That's a heck of a list of folks already leaving! I have a sad, now.

Everyone else - best of luck this week!

Yikes! I thought the folks coming in from LCI would come into Redemption, not the main tribe! Redemption is a scary place right now. Is it two weeks with no ties that must occur before Redemption is folded back in?
roina_arwen
Oct. 21st, 2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
I believe that is correct, yes.

On the other hand, odds are maybe 50/50 that once Redemption gets folded back in, the tribes may be broken up into some other fashion - alphabetical, by topic, by Flist size, or by whimsy/random draw/die roll... so you may not be any safer!!

I was looking forward to reading witchwife...and Darn! kathrynrose..I was looking at her as a strong contender for the top slots. Thanks for all the help for the newbies, you'll be missed. As for xo_kizzy_xo I really enjoyed reading you.<3

I have the count from this poll, and a question for someone with an impressive spreadsheet.

There are 11 folks in the redemption poll and 49 in the regular poll, with only one bye!

Here's the question: last week the main poll started with 41, three were voted out, eight joined from second chance, and two dropped. But 41-3+8-2=44 so somehow I've lost five people. What am I missing?

Send me a copy of your list and I can go over it for you! :)
