I don't the game's mechanics would allow for it. Personally, I like the non-player judge's system as players could be biased.

Yes, there would be nothing to stop me from choosing my own dogs as winners.

Just like there we can no longer choose judges, this sadly would not work due to abuse of a feature.

Sorry, I don’t think this is a goid idea, plus, this is a virtual game. Members are not virtual.

It could be done as a little side game - just like the ones posted in the Off-Topic Forum, but a bit more On-Topic.

Entries would not be identified. Only the breed sex age and the trait chart would be posted, and maybe the colour(some judges might have a colour preference/prejudice) and/or you could include the disqualified colours.

Limit it to say 3 or 4 entries per class and set it up as a poll.

Alternatively, have a three? judge panel.

If you use dogs that are entered in an actual show, say on the day following the closing of the poll, you could see who judges closest to the actual judge.

We would of course, not have access to the hypothetical "decimals". It would take a little work but could be fun - and interesting.

You can, just don't pick a handler for shows

happy :) I know that.
I meant, if we could handle other players dogs, and work our way up the handlers list based on wins. And maybe even get paid for handling other players dogs?

The problem is that many users, myself included, have several kennels so it would be difficult to be unbiased.

Did you know?
A conformation dog show is not a comparison of one dog to another but a comparison of each dog to a judge's mental image of the ideal breed type as outlined in the individual breed's breed standard.
