When are the winners of the seperate debates announced? Are they judged as soon as they finish, individually, or all judged when the final debate of the round finishes??

All judged individually but it takes a couple of days for results. Yes, it can be nervewracking.

I can't wait, win or lose. If I win I'll celebrate and get drunk. But if I lose, I'll have to drown my sorrows with a nice drink................

:w: lol

In fairness though the Debates have moved quite quickly, thats a plus.

What happens if the other debater doesn't respond within the 24 hrs?


Responses should be made within 24 hours, if people are late with their replies, they run the risk of forfeiting their reply and possibly the debate.

However if there are extenuating circumstances, exeptions can be made by contacting Kano.

Thats a good point and seems a fair thing to do. If your cable goes down that would really suck. Imagine if a person in the debates lived in Florida they might not have power right now.

Thanks for the info intrepid

Well thats good to know because earlier today my PC made VERY loud sparking, grinding noises. It's practically brand new too


It was okay after being left off for half an hour, but It could blow at any moment, and I'd need to find an emergency computer lol

I thought about that when I saw the debate title and your screen name. To argue against space travel must be hard Im sure you could do great if you were for that topic.

I think your right though about the whole debating experience. thinking about it from another view could offer more insight into your own views.

I'm glad to see new blood in this forum. This is a forum where trying counts. Do not go away because you didn't make the 2nd round. I have yet to make the 2nd round myself. That's how good our debaters are. Get ready to try again.

EDIT- in fact, i challenge all the new entrants to suprass the number of views that the Terrorism debate had. Then i will know the new crowd has much to offer.


Not that I am bragging or anything but that debate has more views than any other debate ever.
