Regarding the three posts, I also find it extremely hard.
I am advocating a 4 post debate, and the staff had set a 3 post limit, so we go with 3.
In my own debate, I've run through my opening, and main, and the next posting will be my closing. The 3 post limit restricts your "linking" and
"quoting" ability, and likewise, I've refrained. (Minimal example. I'm running the lean end.)
I'm reading the others as well, and see the challenge 3 posts present.
Is it too restricting? I honestly don't know yet.
There seems to be a surge of 4-5 debates that spring up, and run, then resolve, which is a far cry better than having 1 debate from Jan to Jun. Any
activity is a plus, aye?
I'm confident the staff will work things out. That said......
I have a new suggestion.
Emphasis on SUGGESTION.
Make the debate forum a monthly contest like the SS forum.
The winner of each debate wins ?
Members toss in ideas for debates for the month, and mods pick a list of ten. Members pair, debate, get judged, then get to join another. You get a
whole month to gather points/flags. Monthly total decides.
Yeah, I am suggestion prone, but I just wanted to toss those ideas out. A monthly comp is easier to keep track of, aye? It would probably give a bit
more structure, given the rules. Ideas, Ideas.
