Challenges are a great way to get your best posts noticed and a fun way to let the community decide which posts deserve the most exposure.
With that said, we know that sometimes the winners don't seem to match everyone's expectations.
Becoming a challenge judge is a great way to help make sure that winning posts are thoroughly vetted before results are finalized.
Each time you vote in a challenge, there's a chance you will be invited to judge the challenge.
To receive an invitation to judge a challenge:
1. Vote at least 50 times in the challenge. Judges need to watch a variety of submissions to judge a challenge effectively.
2. Actually watch the videos. The system can tell when you haven't watched enough of the video to cast an honest vote. Some videos are so horrible (and long) that you won't be penalized for skipping them but make sure you've watched enough to cast an objective vote first.
3. Receive an invite notification. The system will automatically select a set of judges from among the potential voters and send judge invitations when voting closes. You will usually have an hour (or longer) to watch and cast special votes on the top 50 posts. As a judge, you may vote for some of the same videos you saw during your original voting a second time. Your new votes will be tallied along with the original votes to rerank the winners before results are finalized.
