That's an interesting idea. I'll think about that. Thank you!Awesome! Congratulations to the winners
One idea for future method competitions is to include restrictions to make each individual comp unique—maybe something like the most advanced version of the method must have less than 100 algorithms, or the number of steps must be less than 5.
I'm not sure if I like the idea of having a team of judges. That is only a few people compared to the whole community. Having judges would get rid of the potential for cheating, but it would also keep the community from having a say. What we really need is more of the community to vote. There were only 30 votes this time. We just discussed this on the Discord server and I also brought up a combined idea. Basically a weighted system where the community counts for really high percentage. Then I pick experienced people as judges and their vote is the remaining percentage.I personally think having a few judges to decide which method is best would be better than having anyone vote on it. theoretically, someone could just use several alt accounts to vote for themselves. And people who are on a team most likely aren't going to be voting fairly, they will probably just vote for their own method without studying the other methods to see their potential. This means teams with the most members have an unfair advantage over teams with less members.
Still, this was a fun tournament and I am looking forward to competing in another. Thank you for hosting @Athefre!
