Tabbie Update

We've just released Tabbie version 1.3. This is pretty much the version as it's going to be used at the Worlds in Bangkok and also coming weekend at the Haifa Nightly Tournament (we trust that Tabbie is now stable enough to be operated by drunks)

New in this version:

Adjudicator Allocation has been completely redone. It takes into account the following:

  • University - Adjudicator conflicts ('scratches'),
  • Team - Adjudicator conflicts ('scratches'),
  • Better adjudicators should be chairs
  • Better debates get better panels
  • Adjudicators should avoid previous co-panellists
  • Adjudicators should avoid previous adjudicated teams

Overview page made more clear - only currently possible options are shown


  • Removed big "Tabbie" header to clear up some space
  • Personalized Adjudicator Sheets in smaller font for longer names
  • Removed confusing "settings" option


  • Removed the website from the codebase to separate host
  • GPL Licence header added to all code files
