Order, order in the court...
We've successfully gone eight rounds, well over a year, with the orchestration challenges. Recently in Challenge 8, Mitch won his own challenge, a truly historic event for the challenges as such a possibility had never before been considered. Although Mitch has graciously been willing to pass the reigns to the second place tie winners, the issue still remains for us to decide upon: can a challenge setter enter and/or win his or her own challenge?
I believe that allowing a challenge setter to enter his or her own challenge may be unfair to the other contestants as the creator of the melody may be more familiar with it, and will not be starting from scratch like everyone else. This of course may not be the case, there'd be no way to tell... but it still creates the opportunity for an unfair advantage... in my opinion.
So... should a challenge setter be able to enter and/or win his or her own challenge? Please add your comments and/or increment the counter for your vote:
Yea (a challenge setter can enter his or her own challenge) : 0
Nay (a challenge setter cannot enter his or her own challenge) : 1
