Conclusion

Thank you to all the competitors, nominators, and judges. Stage 2 will come out soon, so keep an eye out. Great job to those who have advanced, and good try to those who were eliminated. Just remember, it doesn't mean you are a bad JetPunker if you were eliminated, you were nominated to be in the top 50 after all! Bye, and see everyone for stage 2!

Sorry to everyone who is disappointed with the scores. The tournament was simply meant to be a fun way to get to know other users. It's not official or anything, and it's certainly not unbiased. My experience with a certain user may be completely different than someone else's experience with the same user. This means the ratings will differ (sometimes quite drastically). For the next round I'll probably add another judge and the new groups will be again selected at random. I know I tried my best to look at every competitor separately to conclude my vote and I trust that the other judges did the same. If it were just down to my judging then the results would be different, but as a way of making the decision better rounded, I included other judges. Thank you all for your support, and I hope this helps everyone better understand the comp 😁

May I ask what this is? Were JetPunkers chosen randomly, or were they asked? Am I missing something obvious here?

Also, as much as I appreciate your effort, I would personally not like my name to be thrown in such a thing. If it is not too late yet, can you take my name out of here?

I think that blogs have a higher weight on the ratings than quizzes. At least, that's what I think.

The The basic criteria is:

- Quality of quizzes

- Quality of blogs

- Interaction with the JetPunk community

- Overall impact on Jetpunk as a whole

Sorry to those who were eliminated. There were indeed many that I thought would progress that didn't. Again congrats to those in stage 2!

My main problem with the grading system is that the 'Interaction with the community' seems to refer to just the blog community, which is only a small section of the site. Maybe change the title to 'My Favourite Jetpunkers'?

Well considering it's not completely my decision, I'm not going to change it to that title.

Level 58
Jul 2, 2021
Niobium, it is not just the blogging community, but a complete bias. I got ranked lowest on interaction probably cause of criticism. A low score on quizzes and blogs makes sense, but interaction does not.
+1
Level 50
Jul 5, 2021
I agree with Nio. Something like "Our Favorite JetPunkers" would be better, because it's completely subjective. And Chen said that there were no specific criteria, although you made a list: I think there is a problem here. Do all the judges respected these criteria?

Ok, I'll consider. I can't speak for the other judges but I trust their decision and ratings. Thanks.

I have many points:

Why is MG17 not here? He is a great, nice, and hard working blogger and quizmaker.

Could you explain at least what the 25 people that made it did that was worth them on the list?

How many stages are there? What if people disagree?

Level 73
Jul 1, 2021
The answer to the 2nd point should be obvious, what we did was make it into the top half in terms of ratings
+1
Level 58
Jul 1, 2021
Read the original blog. It explains it better (although some things have slightly changed). Unfortunately because there are multiple judges it would be too hard to tell you why each user was eliminated/not eliminated.

Jul 1, 2021
Wheel of names? So this is randomized?

Level 15
Jul 1, 2021
I still love the competition though...:)

Level 37
Jul 1, 2021
No, they sorted the groups with Wheel Of Names, but they graded the JetPunkers. That's why I asked the criteria used because I'm getting confused with IAB and me with the same grade.
+1
Level 63
Jul 1, 2021
Depends on who grades people. Some people may not know you and therefore give a low grade. I think the best judges are people who know a lot of users well and are unbiased.
+10
Level 50
Jul 1, 2021
Unbiased? But (sorry...), how can MG have the same overall score than IAB, or Anna only 8 points when (sorry again...) Retiree has 12? I don't want to say at all that the JetPunkers I quoted are bad quizmakers, or bloggers, or anything else, but please don't say this is unbiased. I'll clearly rename it in my mind "Favorite JetPunkers of three other JetPunkers". I liked the idea, but the realization is really strange. But I assume it's both the goal and the problem of a kind of global rating like it, so I won't say it's a bad thing.

I never said that the current judges are unbiased, just that theoretically the best judges should be unbiased.

Jul 1, 2021
I agree with Baptiste. Some of them are really strange, such as IAB don’t pass to Stage 2, while marquez100 does. Not saying he’s bad, but this don’t make too much sense. I neither knew him, and put “he’s famous” as criteria exclude less-known, but good JetPunkers. The idea is amazing, but I think a “grading table” with the categories you’re using, will work more.

Level 37
Jul 1, 2021
You don’t need to worry right now, I just want to help, and have these doubts clarified. I think strange some headings, not saying because I won’t go to Stage 2, because I’m not a great JetPunker, but because I was really with doubts.
+1
Level 58
Jul 1, 2021
No worries, I understand. The idea was good, but probably won't work because I can't really get the ratings for each judge. But personally I think you're a great and hard working JetPunker!

Level 37
Jul 2, 2021
You can continue with the idea. Just use the ideas that we advice you. Make a group with the judges and you discuss together. And thanks for the praise.
+1
Level 58
Jul 2, 2021
No worries. I have already made a group for the judges which we can talk on. That is how we worked it. I did however make each rating anonymous to avoid particular users losing popularity for the score they gave a certain JetPunker. The judging will remain anonymous throughout the tournament as well.
+1
Level 37
Jul 3, 2021
I think these grades should be seen by us for we know how to improve and take not of how we are going. But that’s ok. I just didn’t understand the part “the tournament will be anonymous”.

I just mean I won't reveal what each judge scored each person. That will be anonymous.

Level 37
Jul 4, 2021
But what about unite the criteria and grades? Would be useful and better.
+1
Level 58
Jul 4, 2021
The problem is that I changed the judging so that each judge rated each player out of 5, based on the criteria. Not that they scored each player out of 5 for each of the criteria. That is why the highest is 15. They got 5 points from the whole judging panel.
+1
Level 65
Jul 4, 2021
I figured that but who are the judges?

It says in the blog just below the competitors. They are ChineseChen, Josiah2005 and myself.

Level 73
Jul 1, 2021
I think for round 2 the grading should be more open, with a score on different aspects put into a formula. That can probably reduce the controversy this competition is facing in the second round
+1
Level 55
Jul 1, 2021
Yeah, that would work, but there's no point in that now because there wasn't a grading system for this first round. This was essentially a pick of the favorite 25 out of the 50, so no point in changing it now.

The best thing to do is understand that this is more of a "Favorite Jetpunkers" list rather than an actual survey/assessment and see it as nothing else.
