I read most of the debates as they go and make sure I check daily for ones I don't that are ready to be judged.

So no thanks, Walkens okay thumbsup.gif

I wouldn't mind a PM..We can go a month before any debates finish up and then my attention wanes as far as checking in goes. All of a sudden I find myself missing 3 or 4 at once because they've all concluded on the same day..
Also I think there need to be couple more judges, with only five it can take forever to get a debate judged; especially if one or two judges are actually participants..

Thanks Falco. original.gif  I was considering sending PMs to the judges, but wasn't sure if it was necessary.

Well, maybe it isn't necessary for Walken, but he's the exception. wink2.gif

I'll see what Saru says about getting another judge or two. That's a great suggestion, thanks. thumbsup.gif

If you ever ever need a judge I promise I will be very fair, respectful, and do my job to the best of my ability, to weigh out the debates and give a legitimate judging.

Sincerely,
JohnnyBoyC thumbsup.gif

I'm curious.  Do I - as a judge debater - post that I'm judging a certain argument before volunteers join the debate, or do I wait until the argument is over and then join in?  Are the judges chosen at random or do we race to the finish, so to speak?

I usually send out a PM to all the judges when a debate needs to be judged. If you go to the topic and it still needs to be judged, then you can go ahead and score it.

I wouldn't want to pre-determine who will be judging, since there are chances that they won't be available once the debate finishes.

Does that make sense?

I guess here's the place to register my interest in being a debate judge.  I saw the thread asking for volunteers and was like "NOOOOOO - why didn't I check this page out yesterday" tongue.gif

Thank-you PA, but as you have seen three new debates judges have just been appointed and it will be awhile before anymore are required. But saying that there will be a time when we require more judges so look out for it.

A brief note:

It has come to my attention that some may be disapproving of our Judges judging a debate due to outside threads where opinions are different and don't want our judges involved in awarding points.  
Please note  the only people who have any say as to who judges these debates are the Debate Organisers who are myself and AztecInca and of course Saruman.

Our Judges are selected due to their blanced and un-biased approaches. Everyone has different views but on the debates board our judges are always balanced when awarding points.

Please do not even try to sway the judging this is cheating and  can and will lead to points being deducted from your debate.

Thanks.

Is it possible to get a list of the current debate judges, please?  THe most recent above is far from accurate.  Thank you.

When scores are given at the end of debates, participants like to know the justification behind the score and we would ask all judges to just add some comments explaining the reasons behind their scores.

It does not have to be lengthy or in-depth, just a brief summary of what they did do well and what they did not do well and how that translates into their score after the application of the debating criteria.

If you have any questions about this please pm either myself or tiddlyjen. thumbsup.gif
