What is the drill now that the people's choice poll has closed? Do we get to see the judges scoring and how it compares to the people's choice scoring?

I am waiting of the judges votes and we would be able to announce it all tonight. Sorry for the delay but I forgot to send the judges a note to get me their scores. Sorry.

After you have there score cards can you post the score card you used so contestants can have a better idea of how things are judged. It might also be helpful for the people’s choice to see how to judge. Since only 81 people voted I’m wondering if some people were unsure how to judge or if it’s just lack of interest.

Is there another throwdown on the horizon? I didn't participate this time and from the entries, I would have been way out of my league, but I certainly enjoyed looking at them...

With over 1000 views the 81 total votes is odd for sure. Perhaps for future Throwdowns insert a plea at the very beginning for voter participation ? Just a thought. People often don’t read much beyond the first few sentences of things according to some email training I just took.

Maybe there really wasn’t as much interest as originally perceived

That could be but I wouldn’t think lack of interest would generate 1000 views. What were vote totals like in the past?

These are the last 3 that I could find...
Throwdown of January of 2019: 5 entries, 59 votes, 3K views. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/january-2019-throwdown-voting.284184/

Throwdown of October of 2018: 9 entries, 81 votes, 3K views. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/oct-throwdown-voting.281129/

Throwdown of August 2017: 2 entries, 0 votes, 5K views. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/august-2017-throwdown-yardbird-voting-thread.267472/

These are view totals to date so they can be inaccurate as to how many were actually during the voting period...
