Why didn't Seft win? He had the most votes.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] October 7 2005 11:44 PM EDT

Congratz Sut! (where have I congratulated Sut on becoming QB before...hmm...)

Congratz Bast!

AdminJonathan October 7 2005 11:45 PM EDT

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.

Special J 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.

AdminJonathan October 8 2005 12:02 AM EDT

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.

TrueDevil [AAA] October 8 2005 12:26 AM EDT

congrats to both of you ! =)

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 !

Telkir October 8 2005 2:25 AM EDT

Congratulations to you both! :)

Mikel [Bring it] October 8 2005 2:26 AM EDT

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.

Undertow 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.

CoolWater October 8 2005 3:30 AM EDT

congrats to sutekh and bast. well done.

QBJohnnywas October 8 2005 4:36 AM EDT

Congratz to the pair of you! Now, lets see lots of drunken postings...

ywnwraith October 8 2005 9:59 AM EDT

This couldn't have worked out better.

Congrats to both Sutekh and Bast, ya'll deserve it.

QBsutekh137 October 8 2005 11:28 AM EDT

Thank you, one and all!

Nixon Jibfest October 8 2005 11:59 AM EDT

Congratulations to bast and sutekh for QB

Congratulations to Sefton for winning the People's Award.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] October 8 2005 1:46 PM EDT

Indeed, thank you kindly. :)

[EG]The Saint 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

RedWolf 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 :-)

AdminQBVerifex October 8 2005 4:27 PM EDT

Congrats Sutekh and Bast :)

Sukotto [lookingglas] October 8 2005 11:41 PM EDT

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 :-)

Maelstrom October 9 2005 12:45 PM EDT

Congrats Sutekh and Bast! Somehow, I knew you'd each get it!

AdminJonathan 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.

{cb1}Linguala 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 :-)

MrC [DodgingTheEvilForgeFees] October 10 2005 1:29 AM EDT

Congrats Sutekh and Bast. Couldn't have picked better QBs :)

sssimmo October 10 2005 3:02 AM EDT
