ALL topics MUST be approved by a staff member.
Fighters wishing to start debate threads, must:
1) Contact a debate moderator ( as listed here ) and ask if their debate idea flies or not.
2) If a debate mod agrees with the rough debate idea. the member must then submit their thread - before posting it - to the same staff member for review.
3) Once that is done then the person starting the debate must also U2U the same staff member when the debate is posted that that staff can review and verify everything.
Apparently topics are being randomized. So if we get set up I do nt know what could happen!
DWJ001 is waiting as well, but wishes to debate Pinke, and since he's an established member with newly granted fighter/debate status, we should respect his debate wishes..
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).
Staff have are compiling a list of members who wish to Judge debates. We will contact those members in order to hand out requests to judge certain debates.
No member host may choose his Judges. All member created debates will be anonymous judging from this pool of judges.
We will be tweaking the design of this as stated earlier in the thread, so we may at one point have a more 'open judging process'.

PIck a new opponent and we'll roll with the punches
Okay. Any one want the "con" position in the death penalty debate? It'd be your turn if you accept.
