Wise Move Apr 14, 2008

After the greatest invention of mankind, the kudoZ, a new great move!
No need quarelling and calling names.
Just answer the survey and keep trusting the wisdom of the 'wise movers'. And the energy of the shakers, too.

Maybe a different problem Apr 14, 2008

I didn't vote. I guess it was about the end of the contest, I was repeatedly asked by e-mail to evaluate a few remaining translations in my pair. So first I had a look at those that had already been classified, to "calibrate my instruments". And there I saw a couple that I would actually have rejected. This made my gage needle spin, and I gave up.

I am incompetent to respond to your survey, as I didn't vote. However I wonder if there is anything that can be done to spare me from such a predicament next time.
