Default Reminder to Contest Judges- listen to your contestants!

I've been in a ton of contests lately, and for some strange reason I seem to be getting more and more annoyed at the contest judges. not because they hate my entry or anything, not that. But because they seem to be completely ignoring me.

Contest Judges, you HAVE to listen your contestants. They can be telling you important information.
I noted a few (important) things on some threads I'm currently iinvolved with, and seem to have gotten no response.

I would like to throw out some reminders-

-Listen to your contestants! This is a huge one! Someone could be trying to tell you someone cheated or they will be away, but if you don't respond to or acknowledge each post you may not know this.

-Be a smart judge- KNOW exactly what your theme means, and remember that if you give out a broad theme you can't expect everyone to have the same interpretation of it. I got a very negative reply for an entry in a contest because there was a broad theme and apprently my idea wasn't their idea. So it was a bad idea, according to them.

Don't judge like that- people like open-minded judges who value something different as creative, not wrong.

- Please take the time to write correctly! If you can't spell certain words, look them up. If you have badly-worded posts, use 'text-speech' and just can't spell right, it doesn't make you a very smart looking judge. If you come across as a polite judge and spell mostly everything correctly and use the correct grammar, you come across as a nicer judge! And people like that!

-A BIG no-no- Do not be rude! I saw some posts on a contest thread and they just seemed down-right rude. I couldn't believe my eyes to see a contest judge talking to their contestants like that. Judges, don't be rude if there are still a few days left and not everyone has their entries in yet.

-(From Priceless) Don't hold a contest if you can't send prizes. That is just a major let-down to your contestants if you say you'll send prizes, and you don't. Or it can be a no-prize contest =)

I hope you all can remember this and be good judges =)

I support!
I also want judges who listen, are nice and who have an open mind.
This is a very good reminder.

Great reminders! My one fault is I do not get prizes in on time. Often, it will take me a while to get everything organized, and I become busy. So another reminder, if you don't have time to send prizes out, don't hold a contest. See Priceless as an example.

I have to agree with you. I know that one for the second - and when I saw, I was "Oh my gosh" Also, if you're doing critiques, be sure to right a critque meant especially for that person. I've seen something like that before.

Same here. You can't just tell a person to go someone else's critque because they did almsot the same thing. That's just lazy
