The Danger List

Once again, I'm posting a list of the people who are "in danger".

They are out of byes, but not out of options!

- Write without a net for the rest of the mini-season. It has been done.

- Join/form a team that pools their byes.

- Get a "gift bye" from someone else who has extras!

- "Tag Out", giving the spot to someone who has been eliminated, or missed the deadline to sign up. (Not the ideal thing, but much better than missing the deadline again and being eliminated. If you know you can't write another entry, but don't want your spot to go to waste - the tag team approach is an option!)

Those without byes are:

grail76 (was "tagged in" last week, but is on the list because there are no byes)

It's another big list. But hopefully that won't translate to another big bye-out in the next couple of weeks! There's some really talented folks on this list, with a lot of fight in them! So maybe they will take one of those options!


This is a good time and place to remind people that any changes to their Teams needs to be made 24-hours before the Week 4 entry deadline. So this would be a great time to see some more formed, if that option interests you)

For the record: I intentionally ran out of byes. I feel like if I were to be voted out when I still had byes that would be so tragic, like not writing anything would literally have been better than whatever I wrote. So now that I am out of byes I can put my game face on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it ;)

You wouldn't be the first person to do that!

Some people just like the pressure!

In truly not happy in life unless I'm slitting the fine line between complete nervous breakdown due to impossible deadlines and kicking ass at everything.

At this rate, maybe I should just start selling extra byes as an "in game purchase". ;)

I'm not joking =P I'd pay $5 a bye!

Don't tempt me... Survivor seasons are on sale for the next two days on Amazon. ;)

(oh, and I may need a root canal on top of everything else! Which means I won't get the seasons... *kicks teeth*... damn, maybe that's the problem.. :P)

The LJ idol app would be amazing. Get a leaderboard going, voting polls, in game purchases of extra byes or immunity chalices or other fun things. You'd be rich!

+1. Sounds like a Cool Idea, actually!
Dec. 30th, 2015 12:22 am (UTC)
I wouldn't dismiss that idea too quickly.

Hear, hear!

For me, these holidays have just been murder. We drove from Austin to central and northern Illinois in the last ten days. I know folks go, "Well, there had to be some time in there _somewhere_ to write," but really between all the stops, visits, harrowing weather (OMG!!!), route changes, etc., etc., there just wasn't. We barely got gifts wrapped this year!

Anyway! Home now, but with no byes, I'm just not sure I'm gonna make it. I would love to participate in a season (full or short) where I actually have the time to throw myself into the writing. I always think, "Oh, just get something out there," but that's just not how I like to work. I don't want to throw some junk out there on the off chance it might save my spot. If I do it, I want it to be something I'm proud to put out there (right or wrong). =)

I guess I should ask this... is there anyone who'd want to tag in? I really do love this game and GARY (OMG), but I know how life'll be in these next few months (my sister, her husband, and her 6 mo old baby are moving in with us in just a few days), and they don't look to be any less hectic!

Welcome home! :)

"my sister, her husband, and her 6 mo old baby are moving in with us in just a few days, and they don't look to be any less hectic!"

Yikes! I know what you mean though, there have been past seasons where, no matter what I did, I just couldn't find the time to write. Happy to mercilessly hound you by private message though, if that's what it takes. :)

I'm still bummed that I lost my first bye because I wrote the dates wrong. :(
Dec. 30th, 2015 03:20 am (UTC)
Oh no! I wish I had reminded you, but I didn't want to be pushy.

I'm just now seeing that half our number were byes this week. It should be much easier than usual to get the reading done at least.
Dec. 30th, 2015 03:24 am (UTC)
Except I read that LJ is going off-line for repairs in a out an hour. That was my plan, too. Wanted to get it all done tonight. Ah well, the best laid plans and so forth.

You can use whipchick's trick. A couple of seasons ago she made it through the whole season, commenting on every entry and winning without taking a single bye while she traveled and performed all over the planet.

To read while she's offline, she opens a bunch of entries in different windows, open to the comment screen on each. While offline (on a plane, in a car, sitting in the corner of an after-performance party she's not into) she read the entries and wrote her comments, then when she could get back online she'd hit enter enter enter on her comments and voila!

Thank you! I wonder if it will work with my kindle...going to try it tonight. :-)
Dec. 30th, 2015 04:52 am (UTC)
good luck!
Dec. 30th, 2015 03:20 pm (UTC)
This is one of my favorite ways to read entries, because it means when I'm offline I'm not distracted by Facebook or checking email!

Just be aware, there is one journal style - it's blue and white - where you must copy your comment, hit refresh, and then paste your comment back in to post - it won't save the page if you get offline and get back on again, and it's super frustrating to write a long comment and lose it :)

The Ljidol voice in my head has been hounding me since yesterday for actually using up all my byes in the first 3 weeks ... Darn Again ... But then again like dreamsreflected said I too probably work better under pressure even if it is self inflicted .... Darn !!!
By the way I have put up my entry for reading and concrits ... so those of you with extra reading time ... please do attempt a read :)

I thought reeeeally hard about a bye this week, but circumstance forced me awake, so I dashed something out, and I set up a mobile hotspot to transmit.

Plus I figured something will go bonkers in 2016. It's inevitable, really.
