So I love doing my own live scoring while watching competitions. Scoring PCS is easy (as in, it is easy to record, not always easy to decide). However, it is really difficult to give GOEs on technical elements, especially without planned content. I realize that I can't get the levels or URs that the tech controller is calling live. But I can go back through and edit accordingly once protocols are up.
I'm hoping to score at least singles for Four Continents...But I am wondering if anyone has ideas on the following:
1) Where to find planned elements before the competition begins? I've only ever seen GSers post links to tweets with planned elements--is that the best bet, and if so, who should I follow on twitter?
2) Is there a scoring app that I can put info into and it calculates the total score for me? That would be too good to be true. If not...
3) Where can I find the formulas to properly factor in GOEs, PCS, etc.? I've seen posts on here of calculations for individual judges' total scores and placements, and I'm wondering where these calculations and formulas come from.
