Formspring.me: if there was one rule in figure skating that can be changed, what would it be?

Not a rule, but I wish the judges would really look into how the components scores are supposed to be used rather than just assigning general averages for each. I'm not saying that the scores I would give are 100% correct, but skate order or world ranking has NO effect on how good ones skating skills or transitions are. A skater with great basics might not have the strength to rotate triple jumps cleanly, and on the other hand, a great jumper might not care about the basics or in-between skating. The judges should really reflect that, rather than only differing .50 or .75 from one component to the next..

ITA, but I have a feeling judges would more training and concentration to do that.

totally agreeing!!!
Some commentators in german tv suggested(mainly on Kozukas underscored skating skils) that the judge gas hardly enought time to think about all GOEs and Components, even if she/he wants to be fair.
One suggestion was that there should be different judges for the different tasks, at least for GOE and Components.
Even better: different judges for single compoments.. Maybe this would be too much expensive.. But, I think, at least the more skating components (Skating Skills and linking footwork) could be devided from the artistic components (the others)... where the last may be done by experts from musical, dancing theater and so one. I think that figure skating insiders tend to use that components tho mark the previous results...
