Title: How the judges judged! Posted: August 11, 2009 (12:11 AM)
It took a little while to put this together. Probably would have been easier to update it as I went, but whatever. Here it is.
This way we can see which judges favoured particular reviewers. Overdrive's record from Lewis and Sportsman was pretty bad, but I voted for him nearly every round. On the other end, Dagoss never scored a single vote from me, the only one (other than Turducken whom I don't count since he was only in for 2 weeks) to get no votes from any particular judge.
Janus managed to get 4-3 from each judge and Suskie got 6-1 from each of us.
And as I was judging, and then reading the other two judge's verdicts, I did notice we have different tastes. I tended to look for reviews that kept me interested, stuff that didn't take much time or effort to read. Lewis seemed to favour style and flair, often rewarding people for trying something different. Sportsman seemed to like just about everything, even in those matches where Lewis and I disliked both reviews.

in my mind, me/you is 4/2 with one tie. and team emp and I tied, which will make this week very interesting.

You and your tables. You and your tables!
Nice work, though, and you're totally right about the diversity of the judging this year. Really enjoyed that. I'm frankly surprised that I had as many 3-0 matches as I did, what with you guys having completely different taste.

These stats are cool. Nice work throwing them together! I was interested in what they might be but didn't have the time.

I guess I do look for a combination of both. Obviously the review has to hold my attention but I also look for creativity, style and people trying something new as well.
And I have been the nice judge this tourney, definitely. I've been saying nice effort to reviews that I would've given a 70 in an actual competition haha. You have to really screw up for me to come down hard on you. Not sure if I should continue being friendly in the playoffs, maybe I should take out all of the rage I built up in the 7 weeks on the reviewers next round.

I should be nicer to people.

You were nice to me. You voted for me more than the other two, so I certainly have no complaints.

Man, the TT can be a real ego killer. Look how average I was!
