Green Room - Week 7 - Day 3

Yesterday, there was a question about how votes for teams work, that became a general question about voting. I figured everyone knew, but that was an incorrect assumption on my part.

With teams, voting itself doesn't change: You vote for the entries you want to support, the ones that you read and say "I want to support this"/"I want to read more from this person".

You can vote for as many, or few, as you feel like supporting in a given week.

There are no limits per poll, or in general.

(The only time that isn't true is if you are emailing me votes for a special vote... but I address those as they come up).


With team voting, the final number of votes of the individuals on a team are added together and then divided by the number of active members in a given week (byes are not counted in that total)

This is done for each team. The team with the lowest average vote total loses one member - the one with the lowest vote total.


Given that there was one person who didn't know - that means there are several others who didn't either, but just never mentioned it. All of the polls have been decided by a really small margin. It makes you wonder what would have happened if they have asked their questions earlier!

So I'm opening up the floor - what do you want to know?

(obviously, there are things I can't answer, but if I can, I will)

Your entries are due tomorrow: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/887291.html (that's something everyone *should* know!)

I want to know why I can't seem to write during regular hours. Apparently inspiration only really happens between 1-4 AM!

Not that I've written anything yet for this week's topic, mind you, but that's generally what happens.

Because that's when I send the monsters to torment you.

You have learned to only write when the monsters force you.

Aaah! That makes sense! On the plus side, since commenting, I have managed to jot down a few paragraphs, so yay!

Any changes to tribes: starting new ones, changing members/names etc need to be done by 8pm TONIGHT!

Tribes?!
I know no tribes!

I *MAY* have an adjustment for my *TEAM*, but there's nothing official yet...

Re: Tribes?!
I'd correct that to "teams", but you've responded so I can not.

Hopefully people know what I mean!

Heh! I KNOW what you mean because I am a Jungian and well-versed in Freudian slips. (Is this dress see-through?)

All of my questions have to do with stuff outside of Idol. You're no help to me, Gary! ;)

I feel spectacularly dorky for asking this this far into the season but I am spectacularly dorky, so I guess I'll just go right ahead:

do people generally vote for themselves, or is that more of a faux pas / "don't do that" kind of thing? Thus far I haven't been voting for myself, but it made me wonder if we're supposed to be, or if that's just not done, you know?

Going back to my cave to write... :D

Of COURSE you should vote for yourself! Put your oxygen mask on first and all that. :)

Vote for the stuff you want to support.

If you don't feel like you want to support your own work, why is it good enough to put out there and ask other folks to support it?

That's a great way to look at it, thanks! :D
