I think this is very useful to Frameworkers who have never been on a
panel but do or plan to submit something to one.

In my experience, I actually prefer a system in which judges get a
fixed set of "points" which they can use to bid on selections. Thus
if someone really strongly supports an entry which the other
panelists see little or no merit in, there's still a chance to bid an
entry into a final award. I think this allows for aesthetic or
cultural variety to come through rather than seeking a lowest common
denominator that all the panelists can agree on. (Actually I came up
with this method during the divorce of my first marriage for dividing
up the books and records--really the only meaningful possessions we
had, being grad students.)

Hope the meals were good!
