Quote from Golden Skate Thread:
I think that this hybrid system is the best of both worlds.I had an idea just now, while lamenting (as usual) the many shortcomings of CoP -- Hybrid System. Discuss.
Technical Elements = CoP type scoring -- this creates Technical ordinals
Artistic Elements = 6.0 type scoring -- this creates Presentation ordinals
Ordinals would then work as under 6.0. It might need tweaking... but even if it didn't bring the best of both worlds, it might at least eliminate the worst of both worlds. At least Technical Elements would still be scored under CoP which would be minimally affected by corruption. And at least Presentation would be freed of the shackles of CoP, scored again under a more subjective system which is really required for any kind of art.
And as far as corruption (which has been omnipresent) -- no more anonymity, create an oversight board with actual power to investigate and stop corrupt judges, and any corrupt individual (judge or otherwise) should be banned for life.
You get the objectivity in the technical elements, while still keeping the excitement of ordinals.
