I wish Squadhelp would place a limit on the number of entries that can be shortlisted, and make that number reflect the prize amount offered. For instance, for a $100 prize there would be 10 shortlist spots, for a $150 contest there would be 15 shortlist spots....and so on. Once this number was reached, the CH would have to eliminate an entry before adding another one. I feel this would greatly increase the likelihood that an actual winner would be chosen (since CHs would be forced to narrow their favorites to a workable number) and it would be a huge encouragement to know splits would be a predictable amount. It is just so hard to stay positive about contests where there are dozens and dozens of shortlisted entries, especially when you see them lingering with no sign of a winner being chosen. I understand that it is hard for a CH to choose one winner, but allowing these extensive shortlists surely makes it even more difficult? Not to mention tying up good entries that cannot be entered into other contests for weeks, only to end up with two or three dollars for your trouble. (And before anyone starts listing how much they love the new split system, please understand I am not speaking against it, but in my personal opinion it could benefit from further examination).
