Elimination Voting – 4

Sep 11, 2009 by


Read the remaining 9 contestants’ latest writings (click on Home and scroll down or click on their names in the sidebar) and vote for one TO BE ELIMINATED based on how well you felt they all responded to the Round 4 Challenge. The challenge required that they weave an element of Fyor’s story into a passage of 450 words or less. You have until midnight September 13th to vote. You can find out who was eliminated and learn what the Round 5 challenge is in a video that will be posted on the night of September 14th. *Coco has immunity this round so she is not included in the poll.

  1. The comments are a great place to start, but if you want to read a lengthier critique of each contestant’s post, check out Dan Powell’s roundup. His reviews of Olaf, Coco, Tuck, Tess and Utah’s novellas-in-progress are at http://is.gd/36v8c and the reviews of Omar, Igor, Rhae and Nora’s at http://tinyurl.com/njvyrz

  2. How does the polling work? is there any control of how many votes a person can post. Polling should be done with some sort of control that limits each individual to a single vote. I was surprised at how the voting was distributed this time around. Hope this isn’t a repeat of Middle East voting practices!!!

    • Yes, there are restrictions. Once you vote from your computer you are not able to vote again. You’ll see what I mean when the next poll is up. I know this is an unorthodox style of voting (to eliminate rather than to elect) but in rigged voting the votes are generally skewed in one direction rather than distributed among candidates.

  3. Fourthfiction voters are idiots. They’re succeeding in being even more conservative and narrow-minded than publishers themselves. Thanks for eliminating the most out-of-the-box, original writers.

    I agree with Annabones, actualy I even suspect that Fourthfiction has got some publisher- readers ( may be this is a good thing though), who go from computer to computer to vote more than once. Yes, sadly some good writers are gone..

  5. you wouldn’t and you shouldn’t. you’re the host.
    I however, am free to insult my own kind 😉

  6. I wouldn’t say idiots. But the votes have definitely favored traditional storytelling over its metafictional or “experimental” counterpart. Those who shunned the traditional form or plied their craft on its outer edges seem to have paid a price.
