Neither did I.

You just have to be willing to learn.

Ah. I could do it if I had the time.

Technology stuff doesn't really come naturally to me. Some of it's pretty hard.

Ok, I have a question for our moderators.

I see that it states specifically in the rules that we're not to either embed or link to youtube videos.

That's fine and I have no wish to link to any video.

However, there is a very apt definition within a "comment" on a youtube page by one of the members. I would like to quote him on it and source the proper url. But the url is obviously of the video itself which is not allowed.

Can I still use that as an external source if I type the caveat that the video is irrelevant.

Allow me to add to the debate moderator question pile-on-athon; what do external bullet-points count as, i.e. :



TYPE A
* item
*item
*item

TYPE B
*item
*item
*item


Would a contiuous external list count as 1 sentence? Or would each item be a sentence? Can I link to a list of items?

BOOM.

I'm trying out my speed approach with this debate to mix things up.

I'll be interested to see how wormwood13 reacts.

Schro Dog...

That rule is not yet one debate old and you made it look silly...


Go Ahead and send me the link so that I can verify the comment and then quote it. I'll vouch for it. I really wanted to avoid video encounters for the tournament as it seems like an easy way to gain extra face/rhetoric time...and keeping as fair a playing field is the motivation...


TWISI: I would say it depends on the list but if you consider that a sentence can last twenty words I would think that we can make a list = 1 sentence...though if you can find a way to turn it into an image/chart then the concern may be moot...

Still catching up...

Okay, last question and one that I am pretty sure was answered around here some pages back... but I am operating at a limited capacity right now (surpirise! :@@
and can't find it. Anyway, what is the rule for images and links?

Did someone say a while back that Image links did not count as part if the five external souce links?

I am unsure if anyone mentioned this prior, but image links are seperate to the source links...

Geez! We really need to spell out the rules.

All this time I'd been working from 10 lines of external source, 5 references per post including images as references..

Now I get 10 sentences, 2 images, AND 5 references per post?

Super, you are in big trouble.

I think after the tournament we should take a look at the verbiage...all this time I thought they were clear and concise...

I think that might be a good idea. I was unsure if it was 10 lines or ten sentences, or ten external quotes to. I just kept it to ten sentences, hope thats ok
