I don't have any problems with any of the judges for this contest.

My only 2 cents- it actually is potentially problematic (at least from a theoretical standpoint) for there to be differing scoring ranges from judges. For example, if judge A gives every level between 50% to 100% of the possible points, and judge B gives from 0% to 100%, then judge B's personal scoring is worth double the points (assuming point totals are average without weighting, such as in this contest).

Along these lines, one of the things I kinda thought about is comparing the scoring here to the academic grading scale.

The average score Pyro gave was 22.08 out of a possible 60 points — or a 36 on the standard 100-point grading scale (in the U.S. at least). That means that not only did most of the entrants "fail," but failed pretty miserably. In fact, going by academic grading, only 7 entries out of the 50 non-DQed entries got above an F (above 59%) at all. And only 4 of these got 75% or above.

Granted, everything here is water under the bridge at this point; but maybe in the future the judges could come to a closer agreement about the sort of score scaling they're using, and/or what it means to have created an acceptable entry. It's certainly possible that most of us "failed" in our objective to make a viable, worthy level. But I find it a bit unlikely.
One of my most anticipated hacks of 2020. Has looked great in playtesting!
Wow, what was that sorcery with the layer switching toward the end, in the grassland + night sky BG level?
This has been absolutely incredible to see over the last couple of years — what an achievement. As far as I’m concerned, in terms of aesthetics, there will be the before-Seasons era, and the post-Seasons one.

I’m firmly in the kaizo realm, where aesthetics are all too often an afterthought (if any thought at all). But your work has inspired me to put them front and center; and I’m hoping Seasons will help spark an aesthetic renaissance.
