Lets Choose the Biggest Fool... errrr... BATOM 9 :p

Voting gets over at 2300 hrs (IST) on Apr 9, 2010. Read the Rules carefully as there are some major changes.

Let us welcome the new Blog-a-Tonics before proceeding further
You all will be blogrolled soon!

Click here to check the fellow Blog-a-Tonics who took part in this Blog-a-Ton along with the direct links to their posts.

In this edition, 35 entries came in. 

Please follow the following rules while voting. Read the rules carefully as there are some important changes in the format.

1. You can cast upto 3 votes and of course you can not vote for yourself.
This time you are allowed to vote for more than one entry but the maximum votes you can give are three. All your votes will carry the same weightage.

2. Your Voting Comment should start as follows:



In case you participated -

I vote for - 
1. XYZ; his/her post = http://ABC/xyz.html
2. DEF; his/her post = http://LMN/def.html
3. PQR; his/her post = http://RST/pqr.html


Code:
I participated - <a href="YOUR POST LINK">YOUR POST LINK</a>
I vote for -
1.  NAME OF THE FIRST BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>
2. NAME OF THE SECOND BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>
3. NAME OF THE THIRD BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>




In case you did not participate -

I did not participate but I am blogrolled by the name of Vipul Grover.
I vote for - 
1. XYZ; his/her post = http://ABC/xyz.html
2. DEF; his/her post = http://LMN/def.html
3. PQR; his/her post = http://RST/pqr.html


Code:
I did not participate but I am blogrolled by the name of YOUR NAME ON OUR BLOGROLL.
I vote for -
1.  NAME OF THE FIRST BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>
2. NAME OF THE SECOND BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>
3. NAME OF THE THIRD BLOGATONIC YOU VOTE FOR; his/her postlink = <a href="HIS/HER POST LINK">HIS/HER POST LINK</a>


Replace the parameters highlighted in red with their actual values.

Remove the extra code in case you are voting for less than three entries.

Remember, in case you participated, your vote will be counted as 1 and in case you didn't, then it will just carry the 1/2 value.All your votes, one or two or three will carry this same weightage.

Hence, do not forget to give your post link or blogrolled name (whichever is applicable as clearly visible in the above code) as it will decide whether your vote is counted as 1 or 1/2 in value.

 3. All your votes should be posted in a single comment. So, take your time - go through all posts - only then decide your one or two or three favourites.
In case you vote separately, only the first comment will be taken into consideration.

4. The 35 valid entries include Rahulamigo who posted after the stipulated time owing to problems Blogger has been facing.

5.  Post your vote in the comments section of this post. Also mail it to me at vipul.grover@gmail.com to ensure that it doesn't go unnoticed owing to blogger problems. While mailing, keep the subject as "BATOM 9 VOTE" and provide your
  1. bloglink, 
  2. postlink if you participated or your blogrolled name if you didnt. 
  3. name and postlink of those whom you are voting for.

Now coming to the other rules:
  • Voting ends at  2300 hrs (IST) on  Apr 9, 2010.
  • I have started moderating the comments and won’t display the voting comments till the end of this process to keep the result secret till its conclusion.
  • After the voting code mentioned above, you may also add the reason, why you voted for a particular post to help others know what you expect as a reader. Moreover, you may also mention the other posts that you liked though you can vote for just one of them.
The Votes will be discarded without any prior warning in case they are not sufficiently compatible with the rules.

So, if there is any query about voting or you do not find yourself blogrolled, feel free to drop in a mail at 'Contact The Marshal'. I'll try to get back to you asap.


A Humble Appeal : Please do not indulge in unfair Favouritism. Let us keep Blog-a-Ton clean of such practices.

Hoping to see genuine and fair voting
Blog-a-Tonically Yours

  2. I am travelling and may return back an hour on two later than voting deadline. I am reading posts on blackberry. But don't think I can vote from that. So can I vote couple of hours late or alternatively try sending by e-mail. If not I may have to vote based on what I read so far next time I get net access. So might vote without reading all.

    Leo's Fool Post

    I've read most if not all of the posts.. and like last time, I've had a tuff time deciding on my choice. I found Rashi's, Shruthi's, Surbhi's, Guria's posts all to be very beautiful and worthy of winning.. however, I decided in the end, that my three votes would go to

    1. Tavish - His Post
    2. Rachana - Her Post
    3. Vibhuthi - Her Post

    I loved the way Vibhuti and Guria had Narrated their stories. As for Leo, i admire the guy's smartness. Watched all the events unfold the whole day and came up with the post in the end.

    I also liked the story by Neeraj. The post by Krishna Chaitanya was also one I really liked since it was a really unique one.

    But just 35 entries this time? i realy hope the next one had more.
