Re: 2019-20 Groger Ranks Player Poll

Avinash Iyer is good at quizbowl . Also, I know it's not my place to tell people how they should vote, but in my opinion voters should not take online performances into account for this poll.

Re: CALISTO Academic Tournament (Discord, March 21st)\

Why is the fee for this tournament so high? $60 fees are the standards for college sets, where the mirror fees are $40+. I don't see the need to charge such a high amount for a high school set like CALISTO with a $10 mirror fee.

Re: Call for Editors - MAGIC (2020 HS Set)

Quietly tweaking your posted distribution does nothing to assuage our concerns, and if anything makes me more worried about the choices behind this set potentially being arbitrary and unjustified. Can you please be more clear about the reasoning behind the distribution for this set?

Re: 2018-19 Groger Ranks Awards [WINNERS ANNOUNCED]

James Stevenson from GPS isn't mentioned on the Groger Ranks post at all, but I'd like to congratulate him for being the well-deserved unanimous first place among the RMPSS ballots.
