ADVISORY: Vote threads are open to all who wish to participate and cast their votes, spoilers and non-spoilers alike. The posts initiating these threads contain no spoiler information other than perhaps referencing what has been revealed in TV promos for the upcoming episode. Non-spoilers, be advised that spoilers may include information in their posts here which you may not wish to read. Spoilers, please do not include spoiler information for future episodes, stick to the episode in question.
Special Note: Time for a Big Hantz Attack! Fortunately, if you've seen the promos you know it isn't the balding one himself, whew! Instead it is his brother with a five-furrowed forehead. Seriously impressive foreheadage on this branch of the family, yes indeed.

1a. Put the name of your choice for this week's boot in the subject heading.
This is easy, just erase where it says "Re: SurvivorBlowsTribe, Time to Vote..." and replace with your vote on which player will get the boot, e.g., "Albert." Or, if you think this will be a two-boot week: "Albert and Sophie." It doesn't matter which order you put them in unless it matters to you.
This makes it easier to tally votes quickly and accurately. Nicknames are tougher to tally unless they are really obvious without actually reading your post. Other things you want to vote on, who wins what challenge, how much time Albert spends in the hammock, how many fish are caught, what language does Brandon speak, these should go in your post not in your subject line.
("Boot" defines as voted out of a tribe, either exiled to Redemption Island or, when Redemption Island is no longer a factor in the game, eliminated from the game. Quitters are also regarded as boots though whether they would be exiled or eliminated/disqualified is unknown. It is assumed that medical evacuees would be eliminated/disqualified without prejudice.)
1b. The process for voting on which Exile on Redemption Island will be eliminated from the game.
Place your elimination vote anywhere in the subject line with the boot vote. Place an "X" in front of the name of the exile you think will lose the duel and be eliminated from the game, as in X-Cochran or X-Ozzy.
This section is to note that it is absurdly probable for a player to be returned to the game immediately after a duel and subsequently be voted out again all within one episode.
2a. Reply only to this post.
We like to keep our vote threads nice and straight, thank you.EXCEPTION TO RULE 2! VOTE CHANGES!
2b. But to change your vote (or add additional votes) reply to your own previous vote post.
Your new post heading should read, for example, "VOTE CHANGE: Brandon." Or perhaps "VOTE CHANGE: Brandon and Edna" if you think it will be a two-boot week. Should you wish to cast a vote for boot but think about it some more before casting a vote for which exile will be eliminated, or vice versa, please use this same process.
3. This is not a discussion thread, do not treat it as such.
There are plenty of places on the forum to debate the merits of people's arguments, have discussions, have civil and polite disagreements, and you can always start a thread if it isn't redundant.
Please feel free to discuss your votes in your own post, give reasons, cast all the extra votes you want, make jokes, contemplate the relative importance or lack of importance of helicopter shots, we are all interested in what you have to say.
4. No graphics.
If you must have a graphic please make it pertinent to something, thank you.
5. Have fun!
