Will the list be posted here? Also, once the list is posted, will we want to continue to monitor this thread for information?

Hope this helps

Esoteric already answered your question I bet but in case you're not referring to this debate in particular, here's another list of all members who have debated.

How about we get this show on the road?

I'll help; here is a list of everyone who has asked to be included by posting in this thread:

1.) Rising Against
2.) spy66
3.) noeyesnoearsnofacenofears
4.) getreadyalready
5.) JimIrie
6.) ProtoplasmicTraveler
7.) Y2KJMan
8.) OzWeatherman
9.) whatukno
10.) Parallex
11.) KrazyJethro
12.) Nosred
13.) chissler
14.) Esoteric Teacher
15.) airspoon
16.) LordBucket
17.) Jean Paul Zodeaux
18.) DevolutionEvolvd
19.) Romantic_Rebel
20.) MemoryShock
21.) wormwood13
22.) Pinke
23.) abe froman
24.) saltheart foamfollower
25.) operation mindcrime
26.) orange-light
27.) nixie_nox
28.) budski
29.) CHA0S
30.) The Djin
31.) Skyfloating
32.) Death_Kron
33.) jennybee35
34.) hotbakedtater
35.) IgnoranceIsntBlisss
36.) spikey
37.) westcoast
38.) Siddharta
39.) naeem11111
40.) OnceReturned
41.) Zarathustria
42.) ModernAcademia
43.) Woland

Everyone is listed in the order in which they asked, and everyone on the list asked before the deadline. I'm fairly confident that I didn't miss anyone. The bolding is in order to make the list more readable.

Hopefully, that will save a few minutes and bring us a bit closer to getting the ball rolling, officially.

Is there anything else that can be done to expedite the preparations?

Well first off, well done and thanks for taking the time to make that list!

But, and I'm not 100% sure about this, but from reading this post previously in this thread and from what's wrote in the opening post (specifically the 3rd paragraph) it seems that the list of participating members shouldn't be ordered on who asked first, although that should be still took into consideration, but instead I think the more experienced members are placed in front of those who have never debated.

So in other words the fighters in your list who have already fought and are higher up in the ranking list should be placed higher than those who are lower down or have never "fought".

I have to disagree. Because a member hasn't debated on ATS before doesn't mean that they are a stranger to debate. Secondly, our debate forum is not and should not be one that creates an atmosphere of some sort of status. Everyone should be equal. Throw all the names into a hat and draw them out to determine seatings imo.

Oh, I know and I really do agree that because someone may be inexperienced in the debate forum, they are in no way inexperienced in debate but I was pointing out that as far as I was aware, the way the debate tournament on ATS was organized (going from the posts I linked to) the more experienced fighters will be seeded higher than us non experienced fighters rather than seeded in such a way that’s it's first come first serve.

I wasn't trying to say that the more experienced members should be placed before us.


I was just pointing out the system I thought was in place for this tournament. That's all

So the winner of the juniors will meet the winner of the seniors?

Or what, you going to have two winners?

I think you should rethink your format, in my opinion.

For interest's sake, here's the lists I've made from interest expressed in this thread. This is for information/entertainment purposes only. I've made some assumptions about how the tournaments will be structured that I have absolutely no basis for making


 


Senior Tournament
includes people with "Fighter" titles and people listed in the current rankings list. I've used the ranks in the list to order participants, with the exception of KrazyJethro who seems to have been culled from the list in one of the updates.

MemoryShock
chissler
Skyfloating
OzWeatherman
whatukno
wormwood13
Parallex
orange-light
budski
ProtoplasmicTraveler
KrazyJethro



Junior Tournament
Ordered according to time of posting in this thread. I've added jokei and Verum i Peto to the list generated by OnceReturned. I've also left in operation mindcrime in case he wants to re-enter now that there are junior/senior tournaments

Rising Against
spy66
noeyesnoearsnofacenofears
getreadyalready
JimIrie
Y2KJMan
Nosred
Esoteric Teacher
airspoon
LordBucket
Jean Paul Zodeaux
DevolutionEvolvd
Romantic_Rebel
Pinke
abe froman
saltheart foamfollower
operation mindcrime
nixie_nox
CHA0S
The Djin
Death_Kron
jennybee35
hotbakedtater
IgnoranceIsntBliss
jokei
spikey
westcoast
Siddharta
naeem11111
OnceReturned
Zarathustria
Verum i Peto
ModernAcademia
Woland

 


Personally, I think that the winners of each tournament should meet in a final match to determine the overall title. But that's just my opinion

Thats kind of a cool idea. It might be more fair in this way.
