NOTE:Congratulations to David Cavers. who produced this month's Hall of Fame Winner. The image not only recieve the most total votes, but actually appeared on well over 1/2 of all ballots recieved. Such a sweep has only occured on a couple of other occations, and in my opinion this image is deserving of the distintion. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
Notice: I found the rules as published need to be re-written. Those rules were a little confusing and was re-written for the purpose of improving clarity. A winning candidate must win by meeting the standards set down in May of 1999. The intent of those rules is, and has always been that there must be at least 12 voters to count the election, Any winner must have received the support of at least four different voters, and the image must either have either the largest total vote count, or the most voters supporting them in order to be inducted into the hall of fame. (The rules as they were written, could make winning almost impossible, but they were not intended to do so.)
INSTRUCTIONS FOR VOTING
SEND ME YOUR VOTE VIA EMAIL TO:
THE SUBJECT OF YOUR EMAIL SHOULD BE -
VOTE -SCURK HALL OF FAME.
THE BODY (CONTENT) OF YOUR EMAIL MUST BE RESTRICTED TO YOUR VOTE...
DO NOT ADD OTHER COMMENTS IN THAT IT COULD CAUSE IMPROPER SORTING OF MY EMAIL AND THUS COULD RESULT IN YOUR VOTE NOTE BEING COUNTED.
If you would like to make comments about the image or anything else, just send your in a separate email WITHOUT using the 'VOTE -SCURK HALL OF FAME subject line.
YOU MAY VOTE FOR 1, 2, 3 OR 4 SCURK IMAGES, BY USING THE LETTERS FOUND NEXT TO EACH IMAGE.
The Hall of Fame uses what is known as the Cumulative Voting system. It works as follows. In this system you have four votes per Month. FOR EXAMPLE, if you want to give all 4 of your votes to IMAGE Z, simply send me the vote as the body of the email using the four letter word ZZZZ ...If you wanted to split your vote between IMAGE Z AND IMAGE Y, you would do so by simply sending me any four letter word containing 2 Z's and 2 Y's. (for example YYZZ or YZYZ or YZZY ....If you want to vote for three different Images, do so by sending me a four letter word containing the three candidates you wish to vote for, using the one you like best twice (For example XYZZ or XXYZ )....Any combination of four letters is acceptable, so long as those letters are listed next to the Images on that months ballot... YOU MUST USE THE EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW
Ballots not exactly following the above system,(with the exception of the new email rule), will be counted if, to the best of my ability,i can figure out the intent of the voter. If there is any doubt as to the intent of the voter, the ballot will be voided. No fractional votes will be tabulated. Ballots containing more than 4 letters, will only count the first four letters of the email ballot. My judgment in all such issues is final. Additional comments mixed into your ballot will only cause confusion , and cannot contain nominations for future ballots. .......Remember, keep the ballot simple..
There have been a couple of examples where people have tried to trick the outcome of the elections. Remember, The rule is ONLY ONE BALLOT PER PERSON PER MONTH WILL BE PERMITTED. The ballots are checked for duplicates sent from the same address. If more than one person must use the same email address to vote, email me prior to voting, telling me of your situation. I will send specific instructions in such cases. Violation of this policy will void any future participation in SCURK HALL OF FAME activities. You need not sign the ballot, but email addresses will be recorded and verified where possible if there is any question about its origin. Any one person is NOT allowed to use multiple email addresses in order to vote more than once. After all, cheating to cause an image to be elected to the Hall of Fame would simply mean you had outsmarted the system, not that the image was picked by others to be one of the best SCURKS ever produced. REMEMBER THIS IS ALL MEANT AS GOOD CLEAN FUN. LETS ALL HELP KEEP IT THAT WAY..
