My point was that unless we have a solid plan for this last point, we shouldn't bother to have the contest. I think it's silly to go through all the effort to hold the thing unless we expect that we'll have enough judges to make it successful. I think we should decide beforehand what voter:submitter ratio we consider to be a success, so that we can evaluate later without emotion whether or not the contest was worthwhile.

(I also think that while I don't mind if submitters vote, they shouldn't count as voters in the calculation of this ratio.)
