### Question on contest rankings

Posted:

**Tue Nov 23, 2004 12:04 am**Hello,

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to enter

your photo contest for October. On the winner's

page you list the criteria for ranking:

1. The number of points it received from all judges.

2. The number of judges that voted for it.

3. The highest rank it received from one judge (see the values in

brackets).

I see that the winners were arranged in order of the total

number of points received. But I don't understand points

#2 and #3. Are the numbers in brackets (sic, parenthesis)

the numbers from one judge, or is each one from a separate

judge? Sometimes the numbers in the parenthesis add up less

than the total points, but sometimes they add up to even

more(!) than the total points for that entry. How can that

be? Could you better explain what the numbers in the

parenthesis really mean? Here are a couple of examples

from the previous contest:

A) 44 points (2,3,4,1,1)

B) 20 points (4,4,7,9)

C) 17 points (1,4)

Maybe better explain on website too?

Thanks!
