Why didn't Seft win? He had the most votes.
Congratz Sut! (where have I congratulated Sut on becoming QB before...hmm...)

For the fortieth time, the vote is only _one factor_ in the QB process.
Sefton won the popular vote, but his candidacy did not impress as much in other areas.
October 7 2005 11:49 PM EDT
If it went only by the vote then it is a popularity contest. And that is not what the QB is about.
And congrats :)
/me lights a firework.

I should note that the decision to make Bast _and_ Ranger QBs was not made without due deliberation.
After a lot of very difficult math, we determined that the world would _not_ implode as a result, so we went ahead with it. But it was a near thing.

congrats to both of you ! =)

Congratulations. Three cheers! :)

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all CB'ers are not created equal, that precious few are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable traits, that among these are Wit, Amicability and the pursuit of Common Good. --That to recognize these traits, QB's are instituted among common Blenders, deriving their just honored status from the consent of the governed.
Well-deserved congratulations !
October 8 2005 2:25 AM EDT
Congratulations to you both! :)

Congrats to Sef-- I mean Sutekh and Bast.
What is the reason for the Vote if it doesn't matter? is it just for show? Fault me for being new (but don't fine me) I'm just very confused about this whole process since I was nominated, and didn't make it past round 2 which I understand is up to Jon and the admins as to who get put on the ballet for voting, then I guess again it's up to them as to who really wins the votes.
October 8 2005 2:30 AM EDT
They do take the votes into consideration. You won't win QB if NO ONE votes for you. Note that of the top 3, 2 won.
Jon simply feels Sefton didn't make a good case for why he should be QB. So he's not.
congrats to sutekh and bast. well done.

Congratz to the pair of you! Now, lets see lots of drunken postings...
Congrats to Bast and Sutekh, your QB is well deserved!
October 8 2005 7:00 AM EDT
Congratulations Sutekh and Bast!
October 8 2005 7:05 AM EDT
My congratulations to you both Sutekh and Bast. :)
October 8 2005 9:59 AM EDT
This couldn't have worked out better.
Congrats to both Sutekh and Bast, ya'll deserve it.
October 8 2005 11:28 AM EDT
Thank you, one and all!
October 8 2005 11:59 AM EDT
Congratulations to bast and sutekh for QB
Congratulations to Sefton for winning the People's Award.
Indeed, thank you kindly. :)
October 8 2005 2:42 PM EDT
Congratulations to both of you, you've earned the recognition and the accolades. Now if it only came with a check. 8-)
! Love Barney
October 8 2005 2:43 PM EDT
If sefton didnt make a good case for being QB, why even put him in the poll? I guess it goes down to who jon (and whoever else is involved in choosing a qb) likes the most. . .in that case, its just picking favorites.
! Love Barney
October 8 2005 2:45 PM EDT
oh and. . .
Congrats to Sutekh and Bast
October 8 2005 3:12 PM EDT
Congratulations, Sutekh and Bast :-)
and Congratulations to Sefton for getting the most votes (one of which was mine :-)
Congrats Sutekh and Bast :)
Congrats Sutekh and Bast!
For those wondering about the voting....
Don't confuse the community support poll with the actual selection process. The QB is selected by Jon and the admins. The voting allows the larger community to influence the choice, but it's ultimately up to Jon.
Do you think either Sutekh or Bast would have won if the community *didn't* show their support by voting in the poll?
p.s. I find it amusing that "Congrats" passes the spellcheck :-)
October 9 2005 12:45 PM EDT
Congrats Sutekh and Bast! Somehow, I knew you'd each get it!
October 9 2005 12:50 PM EDT
It's really more "the admins, and Jon." I retain veto power, but I've never had to use it.
October 9 2005 9:28 PM EDT
geez, the congrats go on and on and on and on and...
just to add to it, congrats to both of you :-)
Congrats Sutekh and Bast. Couldn't have picked better QBs :)
October 10 2005 3:02 AM EDT
Congrats to both of you deserving players.
October 11 2005 10:22 PM EDT
My congratulations go to Sutekh and Bast for winning and to Sefton.
*Lu_Bu_2 gives props to Bast, Sefton and Sutekh.
