Re: Competitions was Period Feast?
- That is what documentation is for. When judging someone in a field
that the judge knows, they have an advantage. They can maybe read the
summary and proceed from there. But if they don't, part of the skills
as a judge are that the judge should be able to read the
documentation, not just for information, but critically to determine
the value of the information. If your doc is good, that's where they
can tell if you really know about the thing you made.
If you're able to stand about and provide verbal information, all the
better. We do that a lot in the Outlands, but I understand that it's
not common elsewhere.

>Unless there is a Laurel that knows the subject or the tools that Iuse how can a Laurel of Caligraphy fairly judge what I do?
- Never having judged in this venue, I have limited knowledge of the
particular process, BUT, I have judged things, AND I can read
documentation with an eye to quality.... does it seem complete? is it
in depth enough? how closely does it coordinate with what I am seeing?
explinations of material? sources? crossreference? quality and
complexity in comparison to others of it's type(if available)...
Well you get the idea...
