  2. How does Twin Galaxies adjudicate scores?

This page is a chapter in 'Policy Official Book of TG Guidelines'

Twin Galaxies utilizes a one-of-a-kind, highly controlled, blind system of "peer review" in order to adjudicate scores. Participating in the Twin Galaxies adjudication process can earn you greater credibility within the community as an expert, as well as grant you additional submission points so you can send in more of your score performances!

The "adjudicating peers" that review submissions are all qualified VERIFIED users of the Twin Galaxies community.

ADJUDICATORS ARE ASKED ONE SIMPLE QUESTION: BASED ON THE EVIDENCE PROVIDED, DO THEY BELIEVE A SCORE CLAIM IS VALID? YES OR NO. THAT'S IT.


Adjudicators do not know when a voting period will end.



Adjudicators do not know where a vote currently stands.




Adjudicators do not know exactly how many people have voted.



Adjudicators do not know exactly how many votes it will take to close a vote.



Adjudicators have no control of the adjudication process. All they can do is vote YES or NO.



All adjudicators will ever know is what THEY have voted.

Adjudicators are not rewarded for personal bias, distortion of fact, or alarmist skepticism. In fact, they are penalized for this behavior. It is very important to understand while adjudicating, that the goal is to be REASONABLE in your review and measurement of the presented evidence.

Being skeptical, for the sake of being skeptical is not considered a reasonable position to take. Pointing out remote possibilities, or taking a position of "anything's possible" for the sole purpose of casting doubt about a particular submission is not in the spirit of Twin Galaxies and will be penalized.

It is very easy to create theoretical arguments to cast doubt on something. An argument can be made to support the idea that your very existence on Earth is in doubt! The Twin Galaxies adjudication process is no place for philosophical gesturing in this manner!

Your goal, and the goal for other participating adjudicators is always just to look at what is being presented in a submission and make a REASONABLE decision regarding its validity.

Adjudicators are rewarded for evaluating submissions and judging them objectively and reasonably.
