so, it's still out of 20? i thought you said something about it being out of ten...

lol, to avoid confusion I decided to make it out of 20 again, but I guess that created more confusion. I still need to work out the scoring system for it to be out of ten and I have to alter the guidelines, but at the moment I just want to see how LM6 plays out.


hehehe. kudos for the effort. i'm glad you took up the cause. thanks for clarifying for me.


To throw an oar in, I'll say only that scoring out of ten runs the risk of half the entries getting seven and the other half eight. Though more effort, I picked twenty in an attempt to leave room for accuracy and differentiation. Of course, if you can find a way of making it work well out of ten, for example making the difference in each measurement not absolutely equal (4-5<6-7), I will but congratulate you.

When was changing it to ten suggested/implemented? I thought the scoring was doing well, for the most part.

I'm problem not going to change it, still haven't gotten it to work out, keep running into the problems that Pawn mentioned.

Tsk tsk.

And to stay on topic, a wise & clichéd quote would be in place: "Don't fix what isn't broken."
