I think in comp they should have only judges that know the rules good.

I agree that the competitor often knows the rules better than the judge. With a dispute like yours, you should have appealed to the main judge to make the decision. That's why there is a main judge, who really should know the rules. Did you sign the score sheet? /Anders

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=558 You signed the sheet, you didn't appeal to the main judge, and you tried to use video evidence in a ruling. How long after the incident did you appeal? Sorry, but it seems like you can't follow the rules, so why are you expecting the judges to follow them perfectly? I can take someone and give them quick judging tutorials and that works in 99% of the solves. For the last 1%, they can come to me, but if a competitor isn't following the regulations either, and they agree with the judges ruling until later, there's nothing I can do.

The role of the judges is to enforce the rules. It should go without saying that judges should know the rules. Was there a point to this thread?

Was there a point to this thread?[/quote:1sarzoh2] yea it was because a judge gave me a +2, but it was less then 45 degrees. So i just wanted there to be more "qualified" judges. p.s. but it was also kinda my fault for signing
