Oh gosh, feel free.
Here's how it works:
Debate idea is produced between two members.
Debate idea is submitted for approval.
Approval is received.
Debate members post links to their three posts, as they occur, in this thread, though that is not canon.
Debate finishes, after the con position's final post, and the con position submits the debate for judging in this thread.
After that, the Mods take care of it. You are released from any debate obligations once the con position has declared the debate over. The Mods find
the judges that are available, a delay of 2-4 days, and once the results are in, they post in this thread, with a link to the determination. Waiting
on a decision in no way limits your ability to start a new debate.
There are no limitations (save common sense) as to how many debates you can have going on at the same time. It would not be odd to have 2 or 3
running concurrently, (I know) and the Mods allow that, as long as you keep up your end of your obligation, and respond in a timely manner.
A three post debate should take about 5 days to complete, but they have been done within 1 day. Debates should be concluded within 7 days, save
personal issues, in which you should alert staff and your fellow debate partner. There have been debates closed because members left them, and the
rule of thumb the Mods follow is 2 weeks of no activity, in which they will close a debate thread.
Hope that helps.
