I think this is unjustifiably low, even if it is a worthwhile topic.

With some of the other low conversion rates (Nicholas Nickleby and Edna St. Vincent Millay come to mind), I wonder if a more give-away-ish giveaway could have helped? Could I see those two?

Honestly, the Lavoie clue is useless. Not that I think it's inappropriate to be referenced in a high school question, and were the actual phrase used, I think there would be a few buzzes, but Charles Lavoie is an actual nobody, and without using the actual phrase (obviously since this is the high school section), that clue is completely opaque and unbuzzable.

I agree with Jon here. The actual obscene phrase is highly memorable, but since it can't be used, you're left with having to remember the dude's name. This may have been better for some sort of bonus or at a higher difficulty level.

In the cases of Tammuz, Nawaz Sharif, and Cartoons of the New Yorker, obviously these appear to have considerably sub-optimal conversion rates and egregiously high neg totals, as well as astonishingly low power numbers (whoever powered that Tammuz tossup has got to be a total hoss at RMP). I can't imagine there were anything misleading about the clues for Tammuz and Sharif that could've induced any negs (you either know them or you don't), but like I previously mentioned regarding the tossup on the New Yorker cartoons, it seemed like it was very easy to neg it with "meme" or something else (now that I read the tossup, towards the end I can imagine someone would neg with "comic", get prompted and unsuccessfully try "web comic"). I know in my room it got negged with meme at the "internet" clue, and as cool as an answerline as it was (plus the fact I converted it at the end), several other people I talked to Sunday told me they, or their opponent, negged it with "meme" as well. At a 65% neg rate, 44% conversion and 0% power rate, I'd argue this may not have been a great tossup, at least for HSNCT.

Are there any other tossups that saw few to no powers, less-than-desirable conversion and eyebrow-raising high neg totals?

What were the highest converted tossups (and tossups with highest number of powers)?

While the New Yorker tossup had its issues, I don't really feel a lot of sympathy for people who negged with "meme" or something like that. You're not entitled to forget the first half of the tossup and reflex buzz on one clue that seems like it fits, and the phrase "Back to the drawing board" predates the birth of everyone competing at this tournament and the internet, so... that's a clearly wrong answer.

Is the final number in figures such as '0/14/2' or '75/5/5' stand for number of rooms in which this tossup was negged or rooms in which it was eventually converted (given that a lot of conversion will be picked up off of negs)? I just want to make sure people aren't misinterpreting if there really are tossups that got negged in over half the rooms that were played.
