Based upon feedback from @seezall and other users, we have improved the communication and guidelines for contest holders to rate the submissions. We have updated our help section, with a more specific criteria for rating. We have also added a tooltip help so the contest holders can see the exact guidelines for each rating as they hover on the rating stars, while rating the entries. This should make the ratings from contest holder much more consistent across different contests.
Fantastic takes a lot of guesswork out on both sides
