I know that the judges are probably extremely busy with all the scripts, but if we get three star or below from a judge, could we get at least what was generally wrong with the script? The judges that I have got the lowest scores from I either get no input, or not enough to be constructive where as the scripts that I did well on I have gotten even more constructive feedback. Its confusing even looking at it after the fact when I think I nailed a script to get a low score without any comments.
Totally agree to @Nathan. With all due respect to the judges, i think the judging criterion is wrong. The judging on the games is based on shear luck. Some judges are lineant, some are not. So it all depends on the luck of the person who judges it. Also as @Nathan has mentioned some of the judges are not giving feedbacks and just lowering the ratings. If one of the aims of this games is teaching powershell, then judging in this manner is not helping.
