Response to: top five -- I'm torn
Is it only me or the rules of the contest rounds are not clear? Taking sport tournament as an analogy the winners of previous "round" go to the next round to determine the winner in final round. Or, as in boxing, the same guys are wrestling in each round gaining scores (unless there is a KO :-))
Here, it seems that each round has different participants and winners of round 1 are prohibited to enter round 2. What these 3 rounds were created for? To determine 6 winners in total? And why a honorable mention in round 1 would disqualify entering the round 2?
I would be grateful for a clarification.
