It was another gangbuster week at the gargleblaster. The grid closed in under 14 hours, but you hardly seemed to notice: a number of brave folks hitchhiked along in the comments. If you’re looking for a little chaser, swing on over and read a few of those. If you were one of our hitchhikers, we hope you will visit the grid, read, comment and vote!
Remember: the Ultimate Question is announced each week in the Sunday Kickoff post and e-mail, and the grid opens on Monday. If you’re not subscribed to our e-mail list, you might miss out! The link to subscribe is over there in the left-hand sidebar.
Voting the yeah write way
It never hurts to go over the voting rules. Please take note:
- The gargleblaster is not a click-fest or a popularity contest. We want you to vote based on the merits of the submissions. Each visitor gets 3 votes, and none may vote for his or her own submission. Read them all, then vote. Gargleblasters are short and go down easy – it shouldn’t take that long.
- We encourage you to invite your friends, families and fans to visit and vote. If you ask your people to vote for your entry, please let them know they have three votes, and they should vote for yours only if it’s one of the best on the grid. Campaigning for your own targeted votes is highly discouraged.
- Yeah write and the InLinkz app allow only one set of votes per IP address. Again: one person, one set of votes. Sure, there are ways to get around this restriction, but that’s cheating, and the editors will more than likely notice. Besides, do you really want to win that way? We didn’t think so!
- The editors do monitor the voting to keep things fair. If we notice targeted voting, self-voting, or other rules-flouting, we will remove votes.
Voting is open until Wednesday, 10:00 PM Eastern
Scroll down to view the grid. While voting is open, you’ll see voting icons on each thumbnail. If you don’t see the icons, voting is closed. You may vote for three favorites by clicking the voting icon. Once you’ve voted, the icon will disappear. You’re done, and you can spend the rest of your time campaigning for your favorites!
Winners will be posted on Thursday by 12:00 PM Eastern
You’re all winners in our book just for participating, but the crowd favorite walks away with the coveted gargleblaster winner’s badge.
