What can we do? Do you want people to tell me in advance what they are writing? So that I can ask either of them to choose another episode?

Not really...those who choose good episodes and improve them even further will get more weightage for their improvements. That's what I was mentioning in the example.
 
A person who changes a  4 rated episode into a 5 will get the same marks as the person who changed 1 rated episode into a 3.
 
What about those who choose 5 rated episodes like stolen Dynamite? If your version is really better, after reading it maybe Stolen Dynamite's rating will go down to 4 or 4.5. Tongue But do you want to touch perfect 5 rated episodes? If you feel the original has any scope for improvement, it shouldn't get a 5.

If two people end up doing same episode then comparisons become harsher. I think they should reveal the episode to you. And first come first basis should be used

Although I am dropping idea to choose best one but one can take 5 rated epsiode with same basic plot and can develop his/her own version.  Now it will be called improvement Confused. Or both are excellent at its own place. Even after getting 5 you still get nothing big.

Not really fair...but theek hai. There are over 700 episodes now and an abundance of 'improvable' episodes in the last 2 years.
 
If 2 people choose the same episode and neither of them has started writing, I will ask one of them to choose another episode. If the other person has already started, then the second person has to choose another episode. Theek hai? Early birds will have a great time.
 
I am announcing. I have already chosen an episode.Wink

If you really improve a 5 rated episode, the original's score will reduce. It doesn't deserve a 5. Why would someone want to improve a perfect episode? They are nice as they are isn't it? Choose episodes which have scope for improvement.
