I was interested in getting colleagues' feedback on how folks are planning on adapting to the new point scale systems tournaments are experimenting with (Wake's 50 point scale & USC's addition of 1/4 point increments). What would a 27 quality speech be on a 50 point scale?  What would merit a 1/4 point bump up or down?
I'm just interested in seeing folks' thoughts on the conversation before November. If we can successfully change to a scale that better reflects critics' impressions of debates and militates against point inflation, I don't think it's a bad idea to get folks' input.
