Sorry for the wait... AUDITION RESULTS ARE NOW LIVE!

To pass to Stage 1, you must receive an average score of 30 or higher. Make sure to hover the score of each judge to look at notes!

The doc will stay up a couple extra days to assure everyone gets to see results. Stage 1 will be announced on August 23rd!

Living judging can now be viewed here

Auditions are now closed, thank you to everyone who was able to submit this year! We will now commence with judging, please keep in mind that there are a lot of entries but we will get them done asap.

Be patient, the results will be public when judging is done!
Hey everyone! I made some data dashboards in Power BI for you to peruse, based on the audition scores, mostly because I'm a nerd with too much time on my hands. I'm still honing my skills so sorry that they're kind of scuffed.

Disclaimer: In auditions, the point is not your rank. The point is to score 5 and pass. So in that respect, do not take too much weight to ranks like I've put in this report. Don't think about what rank a judge gave you because they were not thinking about what rank to give you, they were thinking about what score to give you. If there is a weakness of how I constructed this report, it is that. Still, I think it is fun to see your rank and how you're doing, which is why I included it.

*When I say positive and negative, I mean more or less than the average score. This is likely due to each judge's personal internal grading scale and does not actually mean they are nicer or meaner.

Interesting observations:
- There is a pretty linear cascade of scores. There is no clear echelon of anyone jumping up high or anyone falling low (except maybe the lowest failing scorers).
- Renril is the most positive judge. They only didn't pass 9 submissions. Their scoring methods probably bring up total averages--the averages make Will and Thievley look like negative judges but they are probably on track to be pretty neutral if Renril's positives were taken out of the average.
- Garven is the most polarizing judge. Gave the most polarizing scores out of anybody, whether much more positive than everyone else or much more negative than everyone else.
- CptHampton generally scores more negatively than the resulting total score.
- HeatKai is more reluctant to be overly positive and more reluctant to be overly negative than the rest of the judges.
