Cool WTA World 2005 Eurovision Song Contest -URGENT - JUDGES NEEDED - PLEASE COMMIT SOON!

Hi everybody

Yes, it's that time of year again - Eurovision Song Contest Time

Last year we had an official WTA World Eurovision Song Contest, where we, the members of WTA World were the judges for each country, and in last year's final Cyprus narrowly defeated Ukraine.

This year we will be running WTA World's very own Eurovision Song Contest again - however the jury system will be a little different.

Last year we only allowed 1 judge for each country - but this year each country can have unlimited jury members You are required to committ to the country whose jury you would like to be part of, and you should post your points like the real contest. You do not have to be from a European country to participate, however European members are encouraged to be on the jury for their home country. WTA World members outside Europe are encouraged to join juries for countries with few members from WTA World, for example, Moldova, Andorra, Lithuania etc so we can ensure all 39 countries are represented.

Instructions

Rate your 10 best songs, using ONLY the songs that were entered in the final, you ARE NOT ALLOWED to vote for countries who lost in the semi-final. You are also NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE FOR THE COUNTRY YOU ARE VOTING FROM, for example, if you are on the French jury, you are not allowed to vote for France Once you have rated your 10 best songs from the final, you must give them points in descending order using this system:

1st - 12 points
2nd - 10 points
3rd - 8 points
4th - 7 points
5th - 6 points
6th - 5 points
7th - 4 points
8th - 3 points
9th - 2 points
10th - 1 point

When you post, you are also required to say this before you state your points, for example:

Good evening Kiev, this is andrew_uk calling with votes for the United Kingdom jury

Because we are allowing unlimited jury members this year, it means that when you vote, your points will influence the final points your jury gives overall. All points from each jury member will be added together, and whichever country has the highest total points will be awarded 12 points from that jury and so on.

For example, say andrew_uk and raquel are the only jury members for the United Kingdom and they posted these points:

Code:
andrew_uk:

12 - Malta
10 - Germany
8 - Bulgaria
7 - Croatia
6 - Latvia
5 - Poland
4 - Russia
3 - Ireland
2 - Bosnia & Herzegovina
1 - Finland

raquel:

12 - Sweden
10 - Germany
8 - Bulgaria
7 - Malta
6 - Lithuania
5 - Poland
4 - Finland
3 - Ireland
2 - Latvia
1 - Bosnia & Herzegovina

The points are then added together, and countries are ranked in order of who has the most points:

1. Germany = 20 (10+10)
2. Malta = 19 (12+7)
3. Bulgaria = 16 (8+8)
4. Sweden = 12 (12)
5. Poland = 10 (5+5)
6. Croatia = 7 (7+0)
7. Latvia = 8 (6+2)
8. Lithuania = 6 (6+0)
9. Russia = 6 (4+2)
10. Ireland = 6 (3+3)
11. Bosnia & Herzegovina = 3 (2+1)

These overall point totals will determine the overall votes for the entire jury, with the top 10 countries being awarded 12,10,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 points respectively, hence the UK jury would award:

Germany = 12 points
Malta = 10 points
Bulgaria = 8 points
Sweden = 7 points
Poland = 6 points
Croatia = 5 points
Latvia = 4 points
Lithuania = 3 points
Russia = 2 points
Ireland = 1 point
Don't worry too much about the points, as long as you post your top 10 songs in order you will be fine

If judges do not post 10 countries, their vote will be void.

In the case of countries with equal points, the country who has the most 12s will be placed higher, if the number of 12s is equal, then we go by 10s, then 8s then 7s and so on.

The list of jury members will appear in post #2

I don't know how many people there are from Cyprus on WTAWorld, so Pdm1987 would like to be on the Cypriot jury. I don't like that song so all should be fine

You forgot to read this Martijn: You do not have to be from a European country to participate, however European members are encouraged to be on the jury for their home country.
