I agree that there needs to be a discussion before tournaments about what the 100 point scale means. When I heard that 87 was average at Kentucky I felt terrible for the people I judged. I don't know if I gave above an 87 and I saw many debaters who I consider definitively above average. My scale starts at 70 and probably averages around 80. 90 and above is a range reserved for very very good performances, I was surprised to find out that this was terribly low compared to the "average". I was even more surprised when people who would have in the past called me a "point fairy" were handing out high 90s. To be frank I don't understand the point of the 100 point scale if 87 is average, but that is neither here nor there. I am willing to adjust my interpretation of the 100 point scale if it is clear that my points are unfair given the community trend. I think we need that discussion and hopefully we can come to some conclusion so the differential created by
 the 100 point scale isn't just based on randomness. 
all the best
