This is why you don't make decisions when you have to wake up and get going extra early in the morning.

Because then you spend your entire bus ride realizing that you've made a huge mistake and need to wait until you get into work to correct it.

I had intended on extending the deadline for the Second Chance poll until Thursday. I didn't. But this morning, after seeing that I had completely spaced on closing the poll (Seriously - WTF Gary???? I don't do that... again though, I thought that I had already extended it. I should have checked to make sure.), I posted and extended it.

Only problem with that? Now if *different* people end up eliminated, they have a legitimate beef that the rules were changed.

I know *I* would be upset if I were in their position and I was safe when the poll *should* have been closed, and eliminated due to someone else's mistake.

So I'm forced to go back to precedent. Which could be the fourth error in a row. But it's the *correct* way to err IMO. So at least if people are mad about it, they can look back over the years and see a consistent pattern of people being mad. :)

So here it is, the final decision on this mess:

The poll is now officially closed.
No one is eliminated.
This was the last round of Second Chance.
Which means all 10 contestants have now re-entered the main competition.
This is double what I had planned - but I am going to honor my original commitments, *including* what is down on paper, but not announced - which, to give those Second Chancers a fighting shot, they all have Immunity in Week 14. (not a bye. They are coming in without that particular safety net. But they get 1 week to get their footing)

So, congratulations [livejournal.com profile] beldarzfixon, [livejournal.com profile] d0gs, [livejournal.com profile] encrefloue, [livejournal.com profile] fodschwazzle, [livejournal.com profile] i_17bingo, [livejournal.com profile] kajel, [livejournal.com profile] karmasoup, [livejournal.com profile] lolaslaughter, [livejournal.com profile] mossmonday and [livejournal.com profile] wildrose - and welcome to LJ Idol (and your DOOM!!! Maybe just Idol... but probably also that DOOM thing...)

Sorry for the confusion. Things should be on track now. The new topic and Work Room will be up shortly.
