Bad idea to have two contests at the same time Jun 25, 2020

The whole idea of Translation Contest where winners are selected by peers is an awful idea. It gets worse when there are two of these contest.
Obviously no one is willing to rate the translations and you have to extend the deadline, now this is the third deadline extension.
You are also not willing to spend a penny on the contest and ask some users to rate the translations. Therefore, this time we probably won't have any winners in some languages and obviously translators are not hav

You are also not willing to spend a penny on the contest and ask some users to rate the translations. Therefore, this time we probably won't have any winners in some languages and obviously translators are not having FUN in a contest. They just spent a few minutes or even hours to translate the text and soon they will find they wasted their time.
Thank you Proz for wasting our time.

And if a voter's result is the same,

Then some KudoZ points can be awarded to the voter.

If the number of voters reached 100, then the a

If the number of voters reached 500, then the awards are multiplied by 4.

No money spent. Easy and costless. But this can make the translation contests real.
