Suggestion to make jury votes for contests invisible for everyone, including jurors, until the voting is finished.
On “Voting” stage, only the number of votes for every submission is shown and all jurors activity(i.e. total points awarded, avg score, comments etc) is hidden.
When the voting ends, the scores/comments and all other related data will be automatically made public for everyone.
That way jurors will be unbiased when casting their votes and the bandwagon effect is entirely removed, i.e. no jury member would subconsciously want to give high/low score just because everyone else did the same, because that juror would simply not be able to see other jurors’ votes.
Edit: I have to clarify that this proposal is for Governance 2.0 in case this feature is not planned already. I think we don’t have to waste time on current version of governance, since 2.0 is already in the works.
