Dunno if you are still collecting beta Elo rankings or not - but now that round 1 is over, round 1 designs continually pop up for random comparisons instead of it just being restricted to round 2 submissions.
When Elo gets fully implemented, weekly rounds will only serve to get synthesis candidates. They’ll stay in Elo, until either Synthesis or the lab ends.
Thanks Berex for responding.
Yes, in a new lab, there’ll be no rounds and every design will persist in rating system until either it gets synthesized or lab ends with winners.
