From this post by GAOTU789:
Judging will be done by two main judges with a third needed only for a tie breaker. Judges can be known or anonymous at the debate hosts
In this debate, hosted by beezzer, he has requested judges, as volunteers, and therefore, they will be known. The third judge is always to be a Mod
in case of a tie.
Other than beezzer jumping the gun, and not waiting for Mod approval before posting a new debate, we are following the "new" rules to a tee.
So in an effort to simplify things some, we have come up with a new set of guidelines( which are flexible and will evolve as the need arises).
Flexibility is key here.
We are trying, as members, to get a defunct forum moving along again. I'm personally proud to see a few older members drift back in, and also the
interest of newer members. It'll be a chore to work things out, but there are a few members who are standing firm in seeing the resolution of this
Times change, and so do rules. Until things are rolling along again, with a viable member base once again participating in the forum, I'd like to
see a bit more leniency in strict protocol. The protocol we are following is listed HERE,
and until we view an update, it's all we have to follow. Therefore, we are going by what we know.
And, you really can't fault us for trying. Sure, it's a bit hodge-podge at the moment, but we are creating debates and making civil posts within.
We've run several, with no T&C violations. A bit of credit?
We follow rules, and link to them, and simply want to debate!
