Oh, you're right. I forgot about that. Any judging updates?

Sanct is planning to drop out due to real life issues, and Sorel is barely halfway done and is content in dropping out should the judging take too long and he's the only one left. Apparently he's suffering "reviewer's block" in that he's struggling to come up with things to write for levels. As for Jupi, I haven't heard back from him at the time of writing this post. What I'm intending is for the reviews to be pushed out by the end of this month at most, because it's taking way too long as it is already.

So the host lashed out, a few days later a judge leaked his reviews and dropped out, another judge is expected to drop out, another judge isn't able to come up with reviews, and another hasn't been heard from. I am legitimately curious if this contest is still going on.

I agree at this point that this is absolutely ridiculous

All I want is good old criticism and feedback and it doesn't seem to be coming. All because the judging was set to be at an unfortunate time (A time of Summer Exams).

We've learned the hard way that 7 judges is too many cooks spoiling the broth. So now we just finish with four or five, like it's the usual amount.

Also, should the second round really be held after these occurrences? What would be expected from it anyways?

Mivixion sent the levels in May 6 and said this

But even if they started working on it in May 6, we can't be sure if they continued to work on it for the next days.

Just submitted my reviews. Expect me to be harsh because I'd be lying if I said I had a fun time judging this :L

You know, considering circumstances, i'm pretty sure that i'd agree on not having a second round after what's happened and the fact that the first round
took this long.

Also, about Sanct and Sorel, If Sanct doesn't get done in the next few days, i'd suggest to just stick with the 4 judges that have submitted their
reviews. Sorel is just lagging behind so much that i'd say we be better off without him, no offense.

Honestly I shouldn't be allowed to judge any official contest in the next 2 years at least.

Maybe then I'll learn to be less of a lazy pile of shit.

Fucking hell, I am actually starting to consider the option of asking to be disqualified and pretend this contest never existed.

So i guess nothing changed in terms of levels at all after the last contests?

This is probably why i stopped submitting to a contest at all.
