We all seem to have one goal in mind, making the rumble more fair. While I'm sure this discussion will help to improve it slightly, there will always be something unfair about it.
First, I personally feel 1 review per contributor should be in the vote list and no more per rumble. This "weekly" rumble is for 1 contributor to win, some weeks there are already enough reviews to vote on, let alone have 3 from one person. Tallying up all votes from 3 reviews for one contributor to me overall seems unfair. As someone had mentioned in a different discussion, each of those reviews is entirely different, for different products etc. This is supposed to be a competition where we are nominating someone for a review we think is rumble worthy! So why should that contributor get votes for 3 different reviews tallied up? It gives an unfair advantage over everyone else in the rumble.
Then again, solving this issue is hard, do we limit it to one review nomination per contributor? Or keep it the same and the host of the rumble picks the first review for that contributor that was nom'd? Then again, that contributor with the 3 nom'd reviews may feel cheated out because their review that is picked may not be the one they personally would like in the review. I think overall from many different angles on what is fair and unfair. In the end, I think still 1 review per nom will be the safest route, the contributor that is nom'd will just have to hope that their review picked is one they would like in the rumble.
I also want to point out that I have noticed something on the #119 rumble. I noticed that, with my review that was voted as the winner, probably more than 50% of the votes on the rumble page were not on my review. I feel maybe a lot of people didn't actually read the review, I know at least they didn't vote or comment on it. My point is, I feel that maybe which such a long list of reviews in the #119 rumble that some people randomly vote. Or perhaps they don't feel like reading all those reviews and just vote for whoever is in the lead. So in turn, 1 review per contributor can help to keep each weeks rumble in a more manageable competition. However it means some weeks the list will be really short if few nom's come in. There's nothing that can really be done about this but It was something I had noticed on last weeks rumble, and previous ones as well. I'm sure this happens with a specific group of people, but not so much the advanced reviewers/active contributors who have been around a lot longer.
Okay I think I am done with my short story. Hope it helps!
