Subject: I also don’t understand the points for 50+ (more)
In reply to: Hth 's message, "1 point means that the judge had you in 50th for place. Fractions below just mean he/she placed you below 50th. Points from all judges are added. The top 50% recall" on 15:43:45 11/26/18 Mon

Didn’t it used to be the case that if you were below 50 (or was it just not placing) you would actually get zero points? Then everyone who received no grid points was tied for last so you didn’t actually know who was LAST.

I realize the fractions of a point don’t make any difference below the recall line to anyone except those who finished there (there’s some consolation in finishing 75th vs 145th), but those after 50 are NOT receiving zero. What determines whether a dancer gets .99 or .95 from a judge?
