If you do not have FIGHTER Status, send me a U2U so that I may assign that to you.
Without Fighter Status you can not post in the Debate Forum..

For example, I see myself and Esoteric Teacher both listed as status "member" and airspoon as status "writer" but none of us have fighter tags.

Not sure yet. semper is our man on duty and I'm certain he'll have this rolling as quick as we possibly can.
Our debaters are some of our finest members and the benefit of the doubt is usually offered.
And as much as some of us may think it takes with time and effort to run one of these tournaments, I assure you that it is much, much, much more than that.
Creating brackets, contacting and assigning judges, creating and assigning topics, ensuring that each debate is following the rules, etc. And if you're sitting there thinking that we've stalled before we've begun, quite the contrary. Our team of trusting staff that is doing the work behind the scenes is likely only getting all the prep work done ahead of times to ensure that once the tournament does begin, it is a smooth process.
As a participant, you're one contribution is to give it your absolutely best and please, do everything you can to avoid from forfeiting! These truly put a damper on the whole process.
Win or lose, finishing a debate is a great feeling.
I've been looking into some of the competitors for this tournament and we've got a very deep tournament.
