http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/12775-best-author-competition-finale-results-are-in/?p=397497

 

(or just scroll down to post 17 in this thread....)

 

 

 

This is the finale. Last round there was a poll. 3 authors were eliminated. The results of that poll will give each authors a certain point as we continue. That point is set by procentage that author got in the poll. 

 

 

OPEN for new entries until JUNE 30

 

 

 

In the finale, your job is to do a ranking. The winner will be the author that gets the MOST amount of points. 

 

 

So you rank these 7 authors in the order you prefer them.

7 points for your favorite, 6 points for your second favorite, 5 points for your third favorite etc.... and finally 1 point for your least favorite to win this competition.

 

 

Charles Dickens
Jane Austen

George Orwell
Terry Pratchett

JRR Tolkien
Oscar Wilde
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

 

 

Example:
7p. to Jane Austen

6p. to JRR Tolkien
5p. to Charles Dickens
4p. to Oscar Wilde

3p. to Terry Pratchett
2p. to Fyodor Dostoyevsky

1p. to George Orwell 

 

 

 

These are the points the authors carry with them from precious round:

 

Charles Dickens (6 votes [15.38%] - View) = 15 points
Jane Austen (7 votes [17.95%] - View) = 18 points
George Orwell (5 votes [12.82%] - View) = 13 points

Can I also take part in the poll if I know only four out of the seven authors?

 

Yes. But you have to rank all 7. So then you have two options on how to do that:

1). Go on gut feelings when placing all 7 in your order.

2) If you can't, then place the authors you like first, and all rest you put outside the list. They will all recieve points though.

 

For example

 

7p (Authors name)

6p. (Authors name)

5p. (Authors name)

4p. (Authors name)

-- The rest

 

All the rest will recieve 2 points as there are place 1-3 left.

1p. to Terry Pratchett

 

Not as difficult as I expected. Intriguing list. Not many post-war writers there. For me it's not a bad list but it's too short of some of the great women writers to be a really good one. Very interesting exercise though!
