Esdad71 is in. There are two spots left.
I strongly recommend adding the Debate Forum to your favorites so that the most recent threads will display in your MyATS. Once you have posted your
first post in a topic, you will automatically subscribe to the thread, so MyATS will show you when your opponent has posted.
I will U2U everyone as quickly as possible when it is their first turn to post, HOWEVER the instructions in the thread will tell you who posts
first. If it is your turn to post and the thread is unlocked, you are allowed to post immediately.
Any time you see that your opponent has taken their turn, you may immediately respond without waiting to be told.
About posting late
If you need extra time: for example, if your opponent posts at 5pm, and you don't see it until the next morning at 7am, and then you have to work
9-5, which makes you unable to post in time.
You should U2U me and let me know how much time you need. Less than 6 hours extra is strongly prefered. No more than 12 hours will be allowed without
very good cause.
If you have sent a U2U letting me know that you will be late, and you sent that U2U BEFORE you were late, you may go ahead and post late without
waiting to hear back from me, unless you are asked not to.
If you are late and have not sent a U2U in advance, send me a U2U first, and wait for a reply before posting.
If your opponent is late, they have not forfeited their turn until myself or another moderator has said so in that debate thread so please do
not just go when your opponent is late.
I'm being very detailed about what will happen if there are late posts, but I still emphasize that we desire to keep late posting to a bare minimum.
