There's no system in place. It's not a secret that I usually ask Hikaru, who's inviting judges at my request, to invite a few certain people to judge and leave the rest of the judges to decide by himself, so that we have most of the time a 50/50 situation. 50% of the judges are requested by me, 50% are requested by him. That's all of a system there is. There are certain rules in place, which I observe, i.e. if someone declines an invitation three times in row, we're not inviting them anymore and if I see that an individual is given a high score (10) or low score (1) to a candidate when it's absolutely not justified, those judges are on my watch too. Latter I just cannot catch always. The idea I have in mind, but it's not discussed yet, is to increase the judges panel generally to be 12 judges instead of 10, since we lately often had more than 10 anyway and to reserve 2 spots to agency models, in a kind of rotating system. I.e. in a MISS SL Pageant that would allow 22 agency models to judge during the competition. Over the course of one year it probably would be 40 or more agency models who can have an opportunity to judge.
There's just things to consider:
a) Not all of the agency models are actually interested in being a judge. As our judges know, it's demanding, it's time-consuming and it's a responsibility.
b) Not all agency models are always available to the times our challenges take place, referring here to this suggestion: https://support.missslorganization.net/037747-Alternate-show-times.
c) Many models have rather poor PC's and have to take a lot of technical measures to even survive walking in a show (i.e. the advantage of watching it on a live stream is by grace and favour through our friends from Die Villa Media Entertainment, it's not 100% granted to be available at all times).
d) There was an attempt by me to have a judges sign-up form at the very begin, 2015 -2017 I think... but ended up with submissions from people I've never ever heard from...
Latter could be a thing, to be meant for MISS SL Agency models only, allowing models to decide themselves, if they actually want to be available to judge or not. Granted, we may not always be able to accommodate all models, who are signing up, i.e. due to the number of challenges etc.
Lastly, I'm absolutely NOT confident to have every model from the MISS SL Agency being a judge for the live interviews.
That's my thought process so far, I'm going to debate it these days and with AVISTARS approaching we may come to a decision and plan soon.
