Can I make a suggestion? How about all hosts have to judge their own competitions? For me, that would be more impactful and worthy.
That's my own preference too, and I agree with Missy on the exception being the ones where we nominate poems & authors.
We do need the vote option , regardless though, primarily for the comps that get abandoned, host goes MIA. People gave their time & effort to write an entry, so there has to be a way to assign a winner if the host bails, and the vote is it.
