To clarify, the nomination process is just that, a nomination process, the number of people that nominate you is really meaningless, it's just there for information. If you are nominated, and you say you want into the voting round, you are in.
From there, at the beginning of November the voting process will begin, probably over two days. You will be given 6 votes per voter. How you use them is up to you. If you want to put them all towards one person that is fine. From there the top 12 will be chosen. That being said I will most likely ask more than just the top 12 to participate as in previous years and do the bonus babe thing.... because more hot girls = more gooder ;-)
Now just one more thing, I hate the idea of the voting thing, I really do, unfortunately I don't see another way around it. If I start doing more than one girl a day, or girls on weekends, people comment less and feelings get hurt. Trust me on this one, I know it WELL from years past. So it is what it is. Yes it is a popularity contest, that's what it will come down to, but sometimes those can be fun as well... That being said, read this next part very carefully:
The type of contests are meaningless, they absolutely NO relation to how you should perceive yourself. I am a firm believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way and this journal and it's content are meant to celebrate that. I have no problem posting pictures of men and women for that very reason. If you are willing to share yourself with us, I am MORE than proud to post the pictures, in fact, I am honored to be that person. To those people that do not respect that point of view, this journal is not the place for you, please leave.
So ya, that's the Babes of Christmas deal, I had a beautiful young lady that I know ask me if she could do a strip LJ for halloween instead, which I of course jumped all over, which is another option... if you wanna play strip lj, or video strip lj or guess the boobs, or whatever instead, that is always open to all of you as well....
enuff preaching... thanks for playing kids, you may not know it, but when you participate you brighten a lot of peoples days and I just wanna say thanks for that.
