I don't mean to troll, i'm just calling it based on what i've gathered over the years from other editors. I personally haven't been involved in the contest in several years because of that and i haven't heard much different honestly. Your attitude towards editors like Mitch who try to make the contest better doesn't help that, IMO. You're hostile, it doesn't make you or the contest look any better.DigitalPanther wrote: Corrupt? Biased? OK this has officially dropped to the level of trolling. I will say one thing to this and then I will remove myself from this argument as I do not like to feed the trolls. That one thing is this. I have worked from the first day I took this position to avoid Bias, that is one of the reasons I do my best to get a varied judge base and do not vote in the judging, acting only as a tie breaker. I am sincerely sorry you feel this way. As for corruption...that would be the very reason I took this position to prevent the perceived and in some cases actual corruption left over from the previous administration.
Anyway, I don't want to get into a huge discussion and cause more drama before the contest has really even begun, it's past that already. There's really no real use so lets see what happens after the contest. Good luck.
