fFair enough. Rate the games on a scale dependent on the number of
games to rate. Rating should still be 0 to (X-1) where X is the number
of games submitted. Simply allow there to be an amount of duplicate
ratings if the judge wishes. A judge could submit ratings of [0, 1, 4,
4, 5, 5, 5, 7], fFor example.
The range of the scale really doesn't matter. It could be rational
numbers from [0,1), it could be 0-100% in 0.1% increments, it could be 1
to 5 stars in half-star increments; it could be integer 0 or 1 (a special
case of score voting called approval voting). Given that it doesn't
matter, I don't see a purpose in having the scale change based on the
number of entries, other than adding complexity.
The coordinator should just arbitrarily pick a scale :)
