Judging - just an odd thought.

Posted on 2005/09/05 13:45
Isnt it going to be in everyones best interest (competition wise) to vote as low as possible for the other teams :) .. It seems also that teams like Soya have a decided advantage, because they get to influence the result more than the single people teams.

Just wondering if this is an expected judging outcome. I, for one, will vote as unbiased as I can. Also should consideration of the gameplay, innovation, and production for only 7 days work be taken into account with the voting? Or should we be comparing to current games? Ie, does a 5 rate as perfect, cannot be better. Or 5 rates as amazing effort for the time available.

Im finding it hard to even decide on votes for some games, since you can sort of see what they were trying to do, and that it should get a good vote, but its incomplete so does it get scores deducted? To be honest I think the games are awesome, for a single week of work.. maybe I'll just give everyone 5 :)

Or is this like Big Brother.. and I wasnt allowed to say that? :) Add comment

I just picked the best game for each category, and scored each game relative to that.

As for the the larger teams having more power... either:

A) Richard is already looking after that behind the scenes:

B) You just gotta trust people to play fair. :-)

I expect everyone will be fair and honest in their own judgement, because this contest is about fun, and it's no fun being mean.

I hope that people play nicely. There's very little else one can do.
