in future challenges the voting/scoring will be revised, specially since the current one is quite labourous to gather up as results. Big thanks to colo who has always done this manually.
But there are good points in Hood's post and also some presented in the discord chatts.
Rating this type of broad contest vs. spesific AU desing challenge imposes difficoulties to the scoring system, as this time basicly it was a contest of who draws best SB style ship as a drawing. since comparing ships design wise would have been impossible. Thus we kinda hoped that artists would realise this and enter the race with most Flash and glamour they could get. Since this was one off experiment, all side-effect of such could easily be ignored.
Getting voting categories for this time were also more difficould, but I dont know if reducing the numerical scale would have made much difference, but it is point we should consider. It does however increase the ammount of tie scores, which makes the usuall top 2-5 positions hard to judge. But we will keep improving and investing our braincells for a good overal scoring/judging method that would be best compromise for majority
Coming next: L/M Moskva, some research ships, pr.26bis, Pr.1144 remakes and Project 1143 complete redux.
