Still roaming forums and finally asking questions I've been meaning to ask:
Are there ever double or 3 way ties? And if so how do judges determine final outcome?
I understand there are 1/10 of a points difference many times, but if tied, what criteria do judges use? Do they bring in another judge for that level.... Which brings me to the next question...
is there one judge for each level, or do all the judges read every single entry beginner to masters?
And final one which is really bugging me:
How would one bad grammatical error be judged if clearly an oversight but not obvious "poor grammatical writing" mishaps in the whole article; if writing was ok, just an overlooked edit? Would I lose many points for missing an error?
I guess procrastinating on finding my challenge buddy serves me well here, a buddy would have caught that!
Thanks for input!!
