Re: What Are Your Voting Criteria?

I can't add much to the discussion on voting methods, other than to note I agree with the concensus of replies so far. But it prompts 2 supplementary questions.

First, do you find your votes spread reasonably widely across the whole range, or do you end up clustered in the middle with only the occasional 0.5/1 and 4.5/5? Do you award similar numbers of 2s, 3s, 4s or do 2.5/3s predominate?

Second, and partly related to this, do you vote in an absolute or relative sense? in other words, if you feel a challenge has an above average standard of entries, do you find you have awarded more marks towards the top end? And conversely if you think the overall standard is lower, that you have awarded more lower marks.
