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.
1. 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., "Phillip." Or, if you think this will be a two-boot week: "Phillip and Rob." 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 (rank the game stupidity of Redemption Island on a scale from 9.9 to 10), 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.
This week we will be using the finale style voting method for duel voting. You will be voting in order on who finishes fourth (last), third, second, and who finishes first (wins).
Please use the following designations in casting these votes:
AB for Andrea Boehlke
MC for Mike Chiesl
ME for Matt Elrod
RK for Ralph Kiser
Place these votes in this format: 4th/3rd/2nd/1st. So, if you think Andrea will finish 4th, Mike will finish 3rd, Matt will finish 2nd, and Ralph will win, your vote should read "AB/MC/ME/RK."
This section is to note that it is absurdly possible for a player to be returned to the game immediately after a duel and subsequently be voted out again at the next Tribal. RI is such a moronic twist.
2. Reply only to this post.
We like to keep our votes threads nice and straight.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: Grant." Or perhaps "VOTE CHANGE: Grant and Natalie" if you think it will be a two-boot week.
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, don't do it here.
But please feel free to discuss your vote in your own post, cast all the extra votes you want, tell us how much you hate Redemption Island, fondly remember when Survivor actually was a game, we're all interested in what you have to say. And KB wants your challenge votes for scoring purposes! Well, actually, he wants an IC vote, there is no indication this week of a Reward Challenge, but if you think there may actually be one of those well go ahead and let us know. Boy, I sure do miss RCs, a lot more interesting than these really lame duels.
4. No graphics, particularly no sig pics.
If you must have a graphic make it pertinent to something. Thank you. I honestly don't even care about this but it is one of our oldest most venerated rules, so there.
5. Have fun!
And I have to say, for the first time ever, I actually don't give a damn who wins this stupid season, it isn't really Survivor.
