Naturally, there was a few things I forgot to mention in that post.
Firstly, the response time is going to be moved from 18 hours to 24 hours. (It pretty much was already anyway but now we will have it in writing).
Meaning each competitor needs to be able to make their response withing 24 hours of their opponents post. I am of course very flexible with this, if
all debates are moving forward nicely I don't mind a little time over here or there. But if there are debates dragging for too long I have to start
cracking the whip.
As far as the selection of opponents/topics for the rounds. It will run the same as last time. Topics are always randomly chosen and assigned. The
pairings are random in round 1, and all subsequent rounds are worked out from there. As the ruling Debate champion, John Bull 1 will skip the
first round of debating.
