Well, we have a question before us my friends.
4 Debaters: GAOTU789, MemoryShock, Skyfloating, and The Borg, have all become mods.
3 of those individuals are already signed up for the tournament.
I'm putting the question to you debaters: do you feel comfortable competing against staff members?
Traditionally, the staff do not compete in debate tournaments. If any of you think that it should stay that way, then maybe it should, at least for a
So you may U2U me if you want, and I will keep that confidential, or you may post that you feel staff members might have an unfair advantage.
I do not believe that there will be anything unfair about mods competing. The mods who competed would not know who the judges are and would not have
access to anything the judges have said about the debates (I handle everything by U2U).
I think that because we now have so many great debaters on staff, that it might be good for the forum if mods could compete.
However, at the end of the day, we staff members have made a commitment to the community, and we will do what the fighters think is in the best
interest of the debate forum in this matter.
If there are ZERO objections, then we can proceed with staff members in the debate.
If there are objections, this tournament will take place mod-free, and later on we can find ways for mods to get their fix.
It's up to you guys, so let me know.
And remember, there are places left still. We need more debaters still. So speak up if you're interested.
