The juries votes equal points, just like yours.
Your votes are then combine with the jury votes.
So for example if you gave Iran 10 points and the jury gave Iran 6 the total would then add to 16.
These totals are then ordered to give your countries filtered result. The Juries do not have their own points to give out, they just filter your votes.

I have no idea what you're trying to explain. I gave Serbia 20 points so what the hell? Did the jury give it negative 10 points on my behalf? ...
I don't understand why you don't just have the participants' votes first, then the jury votes. Now it looks like everyone voted for different songs than they actually did. It's too late for there to be a point in changing it now and hopefully you've done the math right so that the final results (which is, to be honest, probably the only thing most people actually care about at this point) end up right.

Same goes for my list, Buoy. Same goes for my list. I don't think we're even expected to vote for ourselves, so how did I get an extra six points from my own list of votes?

I do certainly wonder how the jury's votes are tallied against my own list TBH. This is one thing that we'd all like to know, because otherwise, it'll look arbitrary at best.

I guess he makes our votes *0.66 and the juri *0.33, because our voting power is 50% and the juri 25%, and then in the end add the Advertizement part or something....and Buoy yeah they ranked Servia really low because i also gave them top 3 and they slipped down.

United Kingdom didn't give itself points! That was an error!

Remove the UK vote bump the others up and Netherlands got 2 points.

Once all the results have been shown and the final result is done the Jury and Voters ranks will be published along with the Points countries Gained on both results.

Juries don't give negative points, the result of the jury results in the same 24, 20 etc. format you guys voted with. If you give points to a country but the jury completely disagrees (it doesn't get jury points) it will obviously not get as high points you gave it. The same goes if a jury votes a country high and you disagreed.

The Jury vote is the same, whereas your votes are different, this is why it's published this way, so that your results are filtered and possible biased is removed, but also it keeps the results week interesting.

I'm putting a lot of work into this contest. I appreciate things are confusing and some people are concerned and I like getting feedback. What I don't appreciate is people telling me what I 'should' and 'shouldn't' be doing and being aggressive in tone. I want people to suggest things, but not tell me how to do things. I've run this contest for about 3 years and it is a lot of hard work... I do it because I enjoy it and I find the people to be generally friendly. Can we please be a bit more constructive and friendly. If you have suggestions feel free to suggest, but think about how you're saying it and about the amount of work I put into this along with the amount of work others do too.

No ads on this thread, please. There's an Audio Advertisements thread for this.
Also, I expect the final results to be out by the end of the week.

I didn't vote for myself either if you see the results above, but the jury actually places a filter on our votes, so it's their votes combined with ours. Admittedly, I find it strange......

Changes to the Next Contest

This contests voting had a lot of complaints and was overly complicated. I hold my hand sup and say I'm sorry. This will be changed which I know people will be happy to hear.

The voting will go back to the block system, with 2 to 3 people voting for a block.
Juries will still vote and the entire vote will be 50% jury and 50% voters.

Juries Points will be given each day and as there will be less juries than blocks, the jury votes will be 48, 40, 32, 28, 24, 20, 16, 12, 8 and 4 points.

Thanks for taking part everyone! I hope to see you next time!

Even though I scored lower than last time around (since more people=tighter distribution) I did improve and I feel like although I was near the bottom of the list,this RAC was much more of a learning experience than RAC6. Neon, thank you for making this type of contest.
