Subject Re: Scoring student proposals

For what it's worth I've also made it clear that making these changes at this point is totally
unreasonable. This is creating work for our admins - like they need more work. 

I'm not sure how much impact this will have. Certainly if there is no way to know who voted
what our system will break completely. At present this is the case but devs have promised
to fix this. 

If there are a number of issues like this I strongly suggest considering using a spreadsheet
for the evaluation (assuming the new interface enables us to export the data). The reason
I say this is that this system has been evolved and fine tuned over the last 6 years. It has
been very hard developing a system that everyone feels is fair, trying to come up with a new
one now will require new documentation and discussion.
