i decided it was merely an optional grade, and judged accordingly. if it was shown with another effect, even amp reverb, it got extra points.
if it didn't, i felt i couldn't add a score there in good conscience, and therefore did not.
i don't think it mattered a whole heck of a lot in the end, as i had very high merits for all involved, and the final numbers are all within about 20 points of each other. not too shabby, guys.
thanks to every single one of you...i've never had a harder job...or felt more honored...than to be a humble judge of some of the most inspiring creations i've ever had the pleasure to listen to.
you guys are the epitome of diy, and you should slap yourselves on the back a few times. well done.
my tallys are taken, and submitted to greg, as requested, and no further changes will happen to the scoring i gave, which i believe to be fair.
it's hard to be fair judging 400 shades of simply @#$%ing awesome.
thanks for letting me participate, and i hope you enjoy your prize, when the final tally is posted and you choose your poisons.
you guys simply @#$%ing rock.
