A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
So here we are.

The last vote. The end of the epic journey that we like to call Season 3 of LJ Idol.

Nobel has a little prize. So do folks like Pulitzer, Emmy and Oscar. They have lots of little friends that roam around the countryside handing out awards.

But everyone knows the REAL prize. The right to have an icon, a banner and the title of LJ IDOL. That's what sparked 72 people to abandon their everyday life and throw themselves into the seemingly ceaseless battering waves of the world of Live Journal. Three of them have stayed on the life raft, hanging out so as not to be swept out and smashed against the rocks.

But, in the end, as Highlander has taught us, there can only be one.
As a great philosopher once said: There's only one Eiffel Tower, One finest hour, one New York town, one 5th avenue, There's only one Mona Lisa, one Leaning Tower Of Pisa, one Paris and there's only one Lj Idol

But I digress. As I do when it comes to this moment. I really dislike this moment, wanting to keep things going forever, wanting to stay for just a little bit longer with all of you, and knowing that the time has come at last for that one last hurrah, to crown the new Idol and to slip back into the dark until the next Season rolls around.

Whoever wins this time deserves it. There's not a doubt in my mind that all 3 of these women will make a remarkable Idol.

Read their entries, where they make the case for themselves and for the others - and make sure you take the time to make a very careful vote for the one you feel will carry the title the best, the one who deserves to be THE NEXT LJ IDOL because this is it - no more topics, no more polls... it's this poll and then Season 3 comes to a close. So choose wisely.

Voting ends tomorrow, Friday July 20th at 2pm EST. You can vote for one, two or all 3 of them. But in the end, there will be only one of these wonderfully talented ladies walking away as the ultimate winner and your next LJ Idol.

Good luck to all of you - and again, thank you for a wonderful season.

Deep breaths everyone. We are about to find out how this ends. Let's get to it!

[Poll #1024435]

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
Two entries.

Two chances to make it to the FINAL 3.

One of the entries was about a "current event" that impacts the world. The other was about something small, but important, that impacts their own lives.

This time around we have two polls. One of them is open. That's the one for the "big" issue. Big issue, big open poll.

One of them is for "friends only", you have to belong to the community to vote. This is the LAST of those polls and the most important.

The totals will be added together and we will find out which of these four ladies is going home, and who still has a 1 in 3 shot at becoming the next Lj Idol

The only way your favorites are going to stay in the game is if you support them, so remember to vote!

Voting in both polls starts now and ends Tuesday July 17th at 4pm EST. It's a short window with a high stake... Good luck!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
Another round and another chance to give me a heart attack with a last minute sliding under the wire performance!

We have 5 top-notch entries this week. It's going to be another really hard decision. But one of these folks is going home after this, and we get one step closer to determining who is going to win the whole shebang!

Take the time to read all 5 entries and make the determination on who you want to see move forward in the competition and who has had a good run but won't be going any further along this road to the coveted title of LJ IDOL

Voting starts now and continues until Wednesday July 11th at 1pm EST at which time we will have our FINAL FOUR!!!!

[Poll #1018195]
[identity profile] kithan.livejournal.com
A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
One contestant had her entry up within an hour of the topic being posted. One of them nearly gave me a heart attack and got hers in at literally the last possible minute - with the others in comfortable positions in between those two.

We've had big rounds before. This is the biggest yet!

There are 6, we are about to determine the TOP 5!!!!

Who will be in - who will be out? After last week NO ONE should feel entirely safe! It's up to YOU, the voters, to determine who will be sent home, and who takes one more step toward winning the title of LJ IDOL!

It's only appropriate then that we do this as a community only vote.

Let's have a "good' vote this time ok?

Voting starts now and continues until Friday July 6th at 4pm EST. (gmt something or other.*g*)

There are some 6 EXCELLENT entries this time around. Some of their best. I highly encourage people to read them all and vote for their favorites!!! There is some really good reading, and some really worthy people... they've written their hearts out, now it's in the hands of the voters!

Good luck to everyone!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
Here we are - the TOP TEN, and we're about to become 8.

This week was focused on team work, two contestants forced together to complete a simple objective, divide up the two topics and have the fate of the other riding on their ability to pull off the task. One of them got to do the "easy" one - to talk about their Happy Place. the other had to make a topic that has been pretty much beaten to death on LJ into something interesting, something worth reading.

It's going to be the strength of these two entries - added together - that is going to decide which TEAM will be going home this week.

Teams are as follows:
[livejournal.com profile] bettybaker and [livejournal.com profile] spydielives
[livejournal.com profile] agirlnamedluna and [livejournal.com profile] oberonia
[livejournal.com profile] shannihilation and [livejournal.com profile] welfy
[livejournal.com profile] oceansedge and [livejournal.com profile] jesterstear
[livejournal.com profile] tryslora and [livejournal.com profile] twirlandswirl

Who executed the best? Who didn't quite measure up to the rest?

Did your favorite pick the right partner?

That's what YOU, the voter, are about to tell us!

The bottom 2 are going home this week - and the remaining 8 will continue to battle it out to see which one of them becomes the next LJ IDOL!

Voting starts now and continues until Friday 4pm EST (gmt-4) Good luck!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
The time for the judges is over. Now the power is back in the hands of the voters!

Do you agree with their picks? Disagree? Was YOUR favorite passed over to be saved?

Now is your chance to make things right!!

There are nine contestants on this ballot. At the end of voting FOUR OF THEM will have their amazing runs cut short. YOU can keep them in this contest. YOU have the power to make sure that they become the next LJ Idol... or end up leaving us this week. It's all up to you!!

Voting starts now and continues until Thursday June 14th at 3pm EST. (gmt-4)

We have half of our TOP TEN - now it is time for our voters - it's time for YOU - to tell us who will make up the other half!!!

I imagine I should post this for him, too. Please remember to keep all non-topic comments out of the topic post!
[identity profile] onyxblue1.livejournal.com
(Posting for [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm.)

This week we lose two more personal AND fan favorites: [livejournal.com profile] dydan and [livejournal.com profile] johnmill79.

At this point that is something that will be happening every week. . . we have now reached the TOP 15!!!

Next week we will be at the TOP 10.

Yes. You read that correctly. 5 of you will be going this week.

Which 5? Well that's going to be up to you.

Not entirely though.

It's going to be up to you and 5 JUDGES (Who will be revealed later in the week).

They will comment on your entries with some constructive criticism - and most importantly they will select 5 of you to be EXEMPT FROM VOTING, thereby giving you an automatic spot in the final 10.

The 10 of you NOT selected will battle it out as normal for the final 5 spots.

So what topic are you going to have for this important week? Why your own of course! This is an open topic week. So make your choice wisely - your future in the game is riding on it.

You have until Friday June 8th at 2pm EST (gmt-4) to post your entries back here. GOOD LUCK!

(ETA, for anyone interested, this is week n-n-n-nineteen.)

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
The going has gotten tough and we leave two competitors before we even get to the voting.

[livejournal.com profile] rebellibrarian leaves us this week to concentrate on RL, and [livejournal.com profile] kithan leaves us because deadlines are not made of cheese!

That's two down - and two to go.

That's right - the bottom two will be leaving us this week.

So remember to get out the vote!!

Voting starts now and continues until Monday June 4th at noon EST.(gm-4) at which point we will have our TOP 15 and be one step away from an event that is going to shift things even more!!

The First LJ IDOL TOUR has come to the end of the road after a spectactular adventure.
Unfortunately the same can be said for three of you as well.

[livejournal.com profile] brandedeclipse
[livejournal.com profile] marjory
[livejournal.com profile] mysticpenguin

have all been eliminated this round. It was touch and go there for a awhile, heck it was touch and go if this round was even going to HAPPEN. But I decided it was going to. . . and so here we are.


It's good to be back, and it's even better for things to be back to normal around here. Or at least headed that way. *G*
Following every great adventure is a period of reflection or just plain old fashioned crashing... and THAT is our topic for this week!

Crashing - as always, take it wherever it is you need to take it!

The deadline to link your post back here is Wed May 30 at 3 pm EST (GMT -4)

Good luck - and have fun!
[identity profile] onyxblue1.livejournal.com
Our congenial host, [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm is still on the LJ Idol Tour, spreading the word to the masses, and probably getting lots of cookies out of the deal. This means you're stuck with me.

This week will see another triple elimination, bringing the numbers down from twenty-two to nineteen, a far cry from our starting point of seventy-two!

Hopefully you have all been enjoying the adventure that is LJ Idol, but by Friday at 1:30 p.m. EST (GMT-4), the adventure will end for three of you.

Again, the poll will close Friday at 1:30 p.m. EST (GMT-4), and we will be that much closer to the Top Ten, the Top Five and . . . the LJ Idol!

NEXT week is going to be interesting... we're going to start our sprints for a couple weeks, with some neat little twists that I've been planning out.
[identity profile] clauderainsrm.livejournal.com
It's that time again - the worst part of the job.

We had two topics this time around, with the votes being combined. The results were closer than I thought they were going to be, both for the top *and* the bottom.

The 3 folks with the lowest vote totals were:

[livejournal.com profile] strangestgirl
[livejournal.com profile] controlld_chaos
[livejournal.com profile] shalanna

So unfortunately we must say goodbye to them. I hope you guys stick around though! Really glad to have gotten the chance to meet you. Well, except Jill, I knew her already!*g*


Now it's time for one of my FAVORITE parts of the game, giving out the new topic!!

Given that tomorrow kicks off the FIRST LJ IDOL TOUR it's probably not going to surprise anyone what the topic for this week is:

MY GREATEST ADVENTURE At this point I shouldn't have to say to make the topic your own, but just in case, remember to have fun!*g*

The deadline to link your entries back here is Wednesday May 23rd at 1pm EST (gmt -4) - thanks [livejournal.com profile] oceansedge
[identity profile] onyxblue1.livejournal.com
First, a few words from our congenial host, [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:
The second topic is in, with a few of you doing that last minute slide under the gate.

At this moment, we have 25 contestants. By the end of this vote, it will be 22. 3 of you will be leaving us this week — and the combined totals of this poll and the last one will be determining which 3.

To keep things interesting, THIS poll will be friends only. Why? So it's not just a repeat of the last one numbers-wise.

The other poll IS still open, so remember to keep up the voting, both here and there!

Voting starts now and ends on Thursday May 17th at 1pm

Good Luck!

Now, let the voting begin!

[Poll #985232]
[identity profile] onyxblue1.livejournal.com
Well, that was certainly a close one! Two of the top finishers barely squeaking in under the wire, with moments to spare before they would have been subject to elimination! Whew!

Remember, the votes for this poll and the next will be added together and the bottom 3 finishers will be going home!

So, if you want to stay alive — and keep your favorites in this competition — voting is important!

Voting starts now and ends on Thursday May 17th at 1pm that's right, I said Thursday. Have fun!

[Poll #983016]
[identity profile] onyxblue1.livejournal.com
Just because the non-topic comments are getting out of hand! I won't delete the ones that have already been made, but please, move it here.
[identity profile] clauderainsrm.livejournal.com
I was up all night wondering "could I hit them with ANOTHER twist? Could I? Should I?" But then I went into the Green Room and saw that [livejournal.com profile] tryslora said that she LOVED twists, so I decided to go for it!*g*

You have a second topic to work on.

That topic, true to form of picking a holiday and following through with it is Mother.

You have one/had one/are one/ are going to be one/never want to be one/know someone who has one/know a song with that name/know a band with the word in it/know one bad mutha. . . so I'm sure you have a thought or three on the subject.

The deadline for this topic is Tuesday May 15th at 1pm EST.

The results of BOTH elimination polls will be added together, and the *3* with the lowest COMBINED TOTALS will be eliminated!

Good luck!

Hello Top 25 - and the rest of you as well!

So what's going on?


May. 8th, 2007 11:08 am
[identity profile] clauderainsrm.livejournal.com
So here you are, the TOP 25.

[livejournal.com profile] zebrapix has, unfortunately, resigned due to personal reasons. Which is a loss to the contest, but an opportunity for the rest of you!

Sorry that I was gone yesterday, I was on bed rest since Friday after some dental surgery. But I'm back now and you are one person away from the same place the people in Season 2 were on Day 1! Heh, yeah, I thought that would make a few faces drop!*g*

Yet another of the front runners has dropped now - which should show the rest of you that this truly is a marathon. It is still very much anyone's game. The special powers are gone - for now, and what is left is how much you want to stay in the competition.

Now for the topic. I had a few different things in mind for this point, but it came sooner than I was expecting it, so I'm going with the first thought of the day.

It's another navel-gazing topic, that some of you will no doubt have fun with.

Most of us have dealt with them - heck, some of us have *been* them from time to time (if the definition is kept to going somewhere knowing that you will be stirring things up/causing trouble in someone else's personal space) - trolls.

At least that's the intent of this week's topic of: "Who's that Trip Trapping Over My LJ?"

Deadline is Friday May 11th at 1pm EST Have fun.
