debates are a fine tradition in this forum and it is a great honor to participate in a tournament.

i just browsed the debate forum to figure out who the actual champion is ;D

the winner of the upcoming tournament will have to step into the footsteps of these famous guys





somehow i have the feeling that most of them have been men, at least the last seven or so.
time for a female champion right ladies?

Great job orange-light!

Hey why don't SDog and MaxMars have shiny banners in their avatars, too? That should happen!

I wish I could -- I'm worried that I don't have the free time right now.

Debates are great fun, and totally worth doing, but I find I tend to spend 3-5 hours per post, which adds up to a lot of time...

i'm glad i usually have a lot of time on my hands. i have been reading through many of the debates in years past, and getting caught up to the expectations and rules, this being my first formal debate in the debate forum and all.

i strongly suggest if those planning to participate have not yet done so, please review some of these structured debates.

good luck to us all,
et

I'm just bumping this thread and putting in another link for the Debate Forum. As many others have said, it's a really good idea to browse through the old debates if you're interested in participating.

Honestly, with the exception of people quitting because they don't "believe" in the side they were given, I have never seen anyone actually embarrass themselves..


if we want to really earn that "fighter" title, we may find ourselves having to debate the opposite side than our own personal opinion favors. however, i think it will add credibility to our own debating skills if we can effectively do it. sometimes i take the opposite stance than i prefer on some threads just for this purpose and practice.

i would be lying if i didn't say i considered backing out after reading some of those championship matches. but, i have decided to stick to it, and give it a shot. i have been diagnosed with ptsd and tbi, but what do they really know, anyway? one of my symptoms is extreme insomnia. but, i figure that may work to my advantage.

i'd be lying if i were to say i am not a little anxious about this. not knowing what i may be debating, or which side or from what perspective. not knowing who i may be matched against, and how much more about the chosen subject they may know than i do.

two more days, then we no more joining this tournament. and i promised myself awhile back the next time an opportunity arose to do so, i would jump in. i hope i do not regret this, and doubt i will, as long as i learn something and gain some experience. i'm thinking this will be fun.

i'm still looking forward to this. thanks for putting this together for us members guys!

appreciative,
john paul

Please allow me to tell you what actually happens.

They purposely find the subjects you are the least likely to know anything about. Then, through careful research and sadistic planning they put you on the opposite side that you would normally take in the debate.

Trust me, these people who come up with these debate tournaments are truly evil.


well, i guess they need their entertainment as well. knowing we have to research something makes it more enjoyable for them. i am anxious to see what side of what subject i will be my first task. i hope to learn something.

yes, the teacher is always a student
