    I'll be a judge in contests if people want me to be. But they'd probably have to PM about it.

    I would prefer 2 judges at least. One judge puts way too much pressure and bias on that one person. Anyone who loses can easily point a finger at the single judge and claim bias.

    Technically, you can do the same thing with two judges, especially something done over time and over the internet... But it's a bit harder to prove. With one judge, time and the internet excuse, the only proof ya need is an accusation.

    It's like a fire to throw gasoline on. And everyone's holding another match...

    So yeah. Those are my thoughts on that, as deemed by the almighty Seth :) Heed my words, or perish by my hand.

    Actually, it's really not up to Monsterous. Conan's head mod of the Writer's Corner, therefore... If he wants to step in, he can.

    I agree with both points, I mean yes conan is head mod of the section and can do as he pleases, but from my time on TH I have come to know the mods and admins as nice people lol. I am sure unless it was taking like 2 months for Monsterous to grade, conan wouldn't step in without asking XD :p

    There were a few amazing poems here, i was pretty confident when I first submitted, but there are some people who are going to be challenging. I see 3 poems that are in the same league, well, one, in my opinion, is a little behind, =)

    It's going to be a close one, I think...

    Problem.

    I have done the results...

    apart from Originality. I dont completely understand it as much as i could and i fear i may get it wrong. So you can either...

    1. Tell me how to judge it.
    2. Leave it out.
    3. Explain it.

    This is urgent <3

    With my poem mark it as how you see it. Poetry is what the reader sees it as, no more.

    Actually, I think starting next contest, we'll leave Originality out. I mean, they're words strung together, you can only be so original...

    Don't judge it.
