Dear @Jesse,

Thank you very much for this announcement and, again, congratulations to all the winners. Guys, please, don’t take this post personally, nobody doubts that you have deserved the spot on the shelf. You all did a great job and the appeal below has nothing to do with you winning. Congratulations and best of luck in the future! :blue_heart::blue_heart::blue_heart:

So, our appeal.

During the last contest, the H&V one, many had questions about the judging system. After a long discussion (FEATURE: supporting small authors discussion) we started a whole transparency initiative (We would like to know how the contests work)

We asked a series of questions and Liz kindly replied saying that you are preparing the answers. Since Liz is now busy with more pleasant matters (again, our congratulations and best wishes) we believe you would be the best person to address these questions to.

Our main question is whether every entry is read by the judging panel (at least 1 episode). If yes, we would like to have a chance to request our scores, both retention and rubric ones. This will not only make the contests more transparent, this will also allow us to assess our weaknesses as writers and improve to do better in the next contests.

Below I am tagging all the indifferent who supported the initiative from the very start. There are many more now, and even some Fantastical contest winners have joined the movement too. We would highly appreciate if you could give answers to our questions.

Thank you very much in advance.

Kindest regards,
The indifferent and Alex.
