Which would mean the rules changed tbh.
They were never intended to be followed with punishment.
What's the point of having rules if you don't have any consequences for breaking them. It really hasn't gone down the drain at all yet tbh. You just flipped out because not everyone's reviews were exactly in agreement with each other. That's literally the point of a judge panel: to have different opinions and viewpoints to provide feedback from a variety of perspectives which ends up levelling itself out in the end anyway. Just because you don't necessarily agree with this doesn't mean you should continue purposefully trashing this contest

Mivixion is a terrible host, the judge roster is somehow worse and any attempts I've made to save this forest fire have utterly failed in reducing how enthusiastically this event jumps down cliffs (getting a sane rubric that isn't based on marching bands, writing the thread and ruleset to minimize punishment for slipups, distributing non-broken versions of the levels to allow all levels to be judged fairly).
So I'm just gonna watch from a distance.
Please don't expect anything sane going into the results, everyone. Moderate expectations are already too high. Play the levels detached from what the judges will say and form your own opinions, because you might find your favourite level far down in the low ranks.
I mean I get why you're whitewashing the situation in a ditch effort to save it but by reducing my arguments to an easy to misunderstand sentence and lying to everyone won't accomplish anything.
I just feel bad for the levels at this point.
