Vote For Your 2005 Today's Toons Favorites (Final Round)
various | 1/9/06 | various

Posted on 01/09/2006 4:10:53 PM PST by pookie18

Well, the preliminary round went pretty well. The voting reduced the 160 items in that round to the remaining 25. As it turned out, any item that received < 14 votes was eliminated. 10 items received no votes at all.

There are some "rules" here, but not many. When selecting your favorites, use your own criteria. Some like funny, clever, pithy, touching, etc. Some like cartoons, photoshops, animations, etc. So, judge each entry unto itself. As the one who adds click-on audios, videos, pics, toons to existing entries, I judge these to be part of that entry as a whole...you, of course, can ignore that if you wish...but only at your own peril ;-)

Each entry is numbered (1-25). Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to send me the numbers in order of preference of your 10 (or less, if you can't find 10 that you like) favorites. If you are caught sending > 10, I won't disavow your existence, but will ask you to remove any excess. This offer will self-destruct at 7 PM ET, Sunday, January 15, 2006. Scoring will be as follows: A 1st-place vote will get 10 pts., a 2nd-place vote earns 9 pts., ..., down to a 10th-place vote getting 1 pt. Good luck!

If certain pics/toons don't download (even after a refresh/reload), send me their numbers (which will show up) & I'll try to help. The detailed results of this final vote will be posted on Monday, January 16, 2006. The decision of the judge (Today's Toons editor-in-chief) is final! Questions? Bring it on! And now, on with the show!!

P.S. If you'd like to inquire about possibly helping with the Best Of 2006, FReepmail me by the end of this month & I'll tell you what would be involved. A few of you were disappointed that some of your favorite cartoons didn't make it into the preliminary round; here's your chance to make sure that this doesn't happen again...so speak now or forever hold your peace!!

Is it just a coincidence that your picks are in numerical order? They're supposed to be in order of preference...

You'll get some credit when you tell me that your vote is in preference & not (coincidentally) numerical order...

I wonder if everyone is doing what I did -- reading them in sequence and then "saving" the best ones in order.

But you'll see I took it to heart in my 3rd post.

Yes, you can vote twice...this time do it in preference, rather than numerical, order...so I can count it!!!

Didn't want to get into 1/2 points, etc. However, if there's a tie for first...there'll have to be a tiebreaker.

I post about 90% of Asay's cartoons...some of his were in the preliminary round (don't know if you saw that), but, after voting, none made the finals.
