Final Pre-Event Notes / Best of Show decision
We'll be launching in about 3 hours and 40 minutes from this post... I'm aware the countdown isn't working as intended but there's not much we can do about that now. We won't have the site up directly at the time it goes down, but it'll be up shortly after as we change some files over, so don't freak out when the full site doesn't show up right away! There will be activity going on in the chat so be sure to show up.

Anyway, I know a lot of people didn't like how we used to decide the best of show- basically we just had the staff pick the booths we liked, it wasn't very organized and there wasn't much to it. We weren't very clear about it though, so it brought a lot of confusion as booths had ratings on the site.... so we have something new to work with this year:

Basically we'll be operating on a points system... highest points in a category wins.

Likes: The highest liked game in a category gets one point.

Reviews: Based on a five-star system, each review can give out points. 5 stars means 3 points, 4 stars means 2 points, 3 stars means 1 point, 2 stars means 0 points, 1 star means -1 points, and a review with no stars means -2 points. Reviews will be quality checked before they can be considered for this... that means no reviews like "it's a good game" or similar- reasons have to be given.

Judges: This year we'll have the staff be the judges... they pick their favorite in each category and post why, their reasoning probably won't be as detailed as a review but it should be of some substance so it's not just random picking.. 4 points per judge pick. (Next year we might pick out judges and have a separate "Staff's Pick" category to go along with Best of Show... depends on how this all turns out)

It does seem a bit biased in favor of the judges but keep in mind that enough reviews could totally outweigh whatever they have to say... I don't know how many reviews we'll be getting since this is the first year we're doing this so keep in mind this is experimental and future events will have the points better worked out if there's any issues with the current system.

Hope that explains everything that needs to be explained!
