And I'm not a judge - never was, never plan to be - nothing against it, just have limited energy/ability. Just trying to make some sense out of the awards as they exist & how useful they are for my own needs. Not even guessing as to criteria, intent etc. of the judges/AIS in general.

The subject comes up for debate here every year or so - one thing I don't remember hearing is whether or not there has ever? been a survey of active judges (i.e., the ones who actually vote for awards) as to how many/what percentage are satisfied with how the system works as it currently exists.

How hard would it be to survey the judges, find out if the majority think it works the way it should? & if not, some suggestions (for example, Tom's) to see if there is a consensus as to what might be more satisfactory?

If the majority of judges like how the system works now, then it seems unlikely to change.
