How long must robots stay elevated to be scored


<SC1> We had a match where our alliance's robot climbed on the barrier and was up for well over 5 seconds after match ended visibly not moving. It only fell once the scorekeeper walked around the field a bit (it was an elevated field so it shook). Our question is. How obvious does at rest need to be? We believe if elevation was confirmed without walking around the field it would have been scored. Here is a video of the end of the match (blue elevation bar):
