No, that's not the point.
The debate forum consists of structured debates with rules, and in order to become a Fighter
you agree to those rules. Only fighters can post
in the debate forum, and it keeps the spammers, trolls, and off topic comments out of those threads.
The same is more or less true for the other "titles;" you must have the Writer
status to post in certain story forums, and only
can post in the Research forums.
The "point" is not about awarding titles to certain people, it's about keeping posts in those particular forums restricted to the people who
seriously want to participate/contribute and won't troll them or post off topic comments.
There is a Public Fight Club Pub
thread in which you can post to challenge someone to
a debate (or accept a challenge) which follows the Debate Forum rules, or you can challenge/accept a challenge via u2u. One of the debate forum mods
will then set up your debate for you and give you Fighter status.
No certain number of posts, points, time on ATS, or nobility
required. Be willing to follow the rules, ask an appropriate mod, and ye shall
