Results - Week 0 - Newbies/Vote- Veterans

The newbies poll for Week 0 has ended. In a tie for the person with the most votes.

Congratulations to marlawentmad and my_name_is_jenn!

I considered doing a run-off, but have decided instead to simply award *two* advantages.

What are they?

I'll announce all the advantages after we finish with the Veterans!

You didn't think I was really going to forget about them did you?

Here, we're doing something a little different. Think of this Week 0 as a sampler platter of "ways Idol can work" during the season. It's a CONTESTANT ONLY VOTE!
What that means is that you have to be currently signed up to be a contestant for Season 10: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html and instead of a poll where everyone can click, you are going to be *emailing me* your choices.

In the case of something like this, I usually have a limit for the number of votes you can cast - and in this case that number is going to be 5. Yes, out of those entries, I need you to pick your TOP 5 (in alphabetical order please) and send them to clauderainsrm@gmail.com

So go over to http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/947738.html - Read, Comment and then send me your Votes! (Please make sure to identify yourself by user name)

The deadline to have your choices into me is Thursday Nov 17th at 7pm EST! Again, no elimination. The person with the entries that receives the most votes will receive an advantage in the game.

Good luck to everyone!

Congrats to our two tied newbies! And WELCOME to all the newcomers - fantastic writing last week and I think we are in for a great season!

Now to tackle the old-timers. And I may or may not mean that literally.

Congrats to the two winning newcomers!

Well, that's a twist. I do not remember there ever being staggered voting before, certainly not on Week 0.

But it gives us time to finish reading if we haven't already, so yay for extra time!

Congratulations on the win, marlawentmad my_name_is_jenn, and on there being no tie-breaker, too! ;-)

So did I! I was gonna finish reading when I got home from work today and saw this entry as I sneak-checked my phone in the break room. D:

Next time I'll pay more attention. xD

(Congrats, you two! You both did wonderful!)

Apologies for my anti-social behavior
I'm an old vet (in more ways than one). I'd be posting this comment under my LJ account, but LJ has decided I neither know my password, nor am capable of changing it right now.

I'm away from my normal writing environment. In fact, I'm on an extended leave from my job/life being a dutiful daughter. My father isn't in the best of health these days (worse than usual). We've decided he can't be "left alone" for any length of time, so I came home to help my Mom who needs some level of normalcy in order to cope with changes (to come).

So... please accept my apologies in advance if I am not a social or responsive as I know I should be. I bought myself a chromebook so I could follow LJI and write when prompted. It looks like I will have plenty to write about in the coming days and weeks.

Much love,

Amy / Spydie

So sorry to hear about your dad. I'm glad you're getting to spend extended time with him (and mom). *Hugs*

Congrats to marlawentmad and my_name_is_jenn. The newbies have been amazing at introduction. No wonder it's a tie :) Great start everyone!

Well done, newbies! Congrats to the advantage winners. Both were excellent posts!

Thanks for having me, folks.
Nov. 14th, 2016 08:54 pm (UTC)
Wow. Thank you all so much. I'm honored.

I don't remember - can you vote for yourself?
Nov. 15th, 2016 03:13 pm (UTC)
Yes.You can/you should.
Nov. 15th, 2016 09:39 pm (UTC)
Should we include votes for vets that missed the deadline? Is that fair?
Nov. 16th, 2016 07:46 pm (UTC)
I think at this point it's up to you. I'm not including them in my pool of people I can vote for since they missed it, but I'm still going to read their entries.
Nov. 18th, 2016 05:06 am (UTC)
I'm the worst.
