Jim: I have a little suggestion. Before participants post their arguments, you have them PM it to you first so the second participant to finish doesn't have any advantage from reading the other participant's argument. Well, why not do the same thing with the judges votes?
The reason I make this suggestion is because I have a feeling certain judges probably wait for the other judges to vote first before said judge casts his/her vote. The reason I have this feeling is because Dunrobin submitted his vote first on three of the four debates we had. On TMD II, Rob was nice enough to let the other judges go first, but none of the judges were submitting anything. Therefore, Rob ended up going first after all. So, just to make sure no one's vote influences anyone else's, maybe you could possibly have the judges PM you, or maybe someone else, with their votes before posting them. Of course, you don't have to start this now since TMD IV is almost coming to an end, but maybe we can start doing this in TMD V.
