Improvement of the evaluation process
Since we are still dealing with waves of bots in some parts of Germany where submissions are rejected in rows with absolutely stupid reasons, we would like to present our suggestion for improvement here.
We are aware that not everyone will like it, but we think that this way we can train the judges better and also take the wind out of the sails of all the quick clickers.
We noticed that it takes significantly fewer clicks to reject a suggestion than to accept it. When rejecting, you only select the rejection categories and click on send. Whereas if you accept, you have to give stars in each category before you can click submit.
Here we see an opportunity for improvement.
It would make sense if stars had to be awarded in each individual category even in the case of a complete rejection. This takes time and makes life difficult for the quick clickers.
It should also be obligatory not only to look at the photos briefly, but also to click on them and enlarge them. It is often only when you enlarge the images that you notice that they are actually pixelated because they were photographed from the screen, or even come from third-party sources and therefore cannot be completely enlarged.
If that becomes a necessity before you can click "Next," then, at best, evaluators may be pushed to really look at the individual points of the submission.
Because far too often it happens that you formulate an additional explanation and this is ultimately not read completely because the evaluators do not click on the window to read everything.
If an automatic check takes place here to ensure that every point has really been checked, then that could seriously help.
Please think about it and feel free to bring any suggestions for improvement. In any case, it shouldn't stay the way it is now.
