I’ve noticed some unfair contest finalists (RPG had some great skins that didn’t make it) and I heard that finalists are based off of diamonds. This causes more popular skinners to basically automatically get onto the leaderboard, while good but unpopular skinners don’t get onto the leaderboard. I have an idea to fix this.

Each judge could choose 1 skin that they think should be in the finalists that isn’t, and those skins would be added to finalists.

Popular skinners tend to make good quality skins that deserve to be finalists. Less popular skinners also make good skins, but might not have put as much time into building a following. Instead of basically affirmative action, maybe those people that don't make it in need to advertise their content and be more active in the community? Or maybe they're not actually as good as they think and they should spend some time looking for ways to improve so they can make it to the finalists instead of cheapening what is is to actually make it by merit of more than one person thinking they're good at making skins.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for encouraging content creators who are just getting started, but handing someone a trophy when they didn't actually get it for doing well enough to earn it helps no one.

I think you're misunderstanding this.

I'm just saying, if there are skins that are really good, a judge could pick it to go in.

Just for skins that should've gotten more diamonds.

It isn't Affirmative Action in any way, it's just that memes by a popular skinner can beat a good skin by a skinner who's just getting started.

No, I understand.

Judge diamonds already count as 10 diamonds from a normal member. I don't see why we should outright have them placing people in the finalists that didn't earn it before the deadline when a lot of lesser-known people that still managed to make it probably spent their time promoting and improving their content to get there.

They count as ten?

I didnt realize that, huh.

I dont think it should be decided by promoting your skin, it should be decided by whats a good skin, and currently, it isnt by whats a good skin.

That's what judge diamonds are for. Doesn't matter how much one person promotes, if the judges spot a good entry that isn't already in a finalist position, they can make it a finalist by all of them giving it a diamond.

Judges are meant to use their diamonds for these purposes and not as a regular user would by just diamonding all the good things.
