By that logic, you could simply mirror the text of all your external reference in a single word document (with source links in the .doc), and link to it once, and call it a single source. That doesn't seem right - each separate link should be to a unique source, as original as possible. It's a moderator rule, if someone actually attempts it.

I've questioned that before, in the AshleyD-Skyfloating debate, in another context. Do single images, which actually contains multiple pictures/graphs, arranged side-by-side in a nice layout (created by the debater), count as a single (picture) source?


Edit: Oh, come on skeppy: don't fear the boat!

I did that in the Christmas debate figuring I'd get away with it because it was a Skirmish not a Tournament. But I did wonder about it, and again in Ash v Sky.

See? This is why we need the wisdom of GAOTU to make the tough calls about sourcing. Because the guidelines don't make any sense as written


(and yes, I was a joy to know as a two-year-old. "But mommy, what if ...")

morning pub



i also prepared in my veggie debate one picture, coz i couldn.t find all the material the way i needed it on the web
so i took what i needed, labeled it and combined it to one big picture

was that wrong?

Morning orange.

If your opponent didn't object, it wasn't wrong. That's not the way it works in life, but it is the way it works in formal debates.


Edit to add: Although I suppose it could also annoy a judge, if they noticed it and thought it was wrong. Then it might cost you some points. Judges are allowed to be annoyed at anything.

Let me pour you a cup of coffee orange.

I meant the moderators depend on the debaters to tell them when they think a rule has been broken. Otherwise they only deal with very obvious big issues, and ignore minor 'bending' of the rules.

At least, that the way they seem to run it - Semper/Mem, please correct if this is wrong!

Morning folks.

Anyone else really looking forward to the R2 draw?

... This must be what normal people feel like before a major sports fixture draw!

The boys are always trying to get her in trouble.

Ian's been on my (insert favorite censor beater here) list from day 1, so it's no use blaming him.

Sorry skeppy. That squirrel just better watch herself


 


oops, thanks for the coffee Ian. You may be a pain in the neck but you're a damn good barista

Hooray! Usually it's at least noon before I evoke such sentiments.

Today will be a good day.
