Maybe what's needed is a 'How to Debate Thread/FAQ' in the Important Topics, since I've noticed in a few other debates, that either one or both parties don't really have a clue...

I'm certainly no master at it myself, but I'd be more than happy to contribute what I can to such an endeavour.

Unless it was a typo or similar small correction, as was suggested earlier, perhaps? Otherwise, as you say, any "major or imortant" change could have impact on the other party.

Kind regards,

I agree. After I posted I saw all the grammatical errors I made, some where a word would not be understood so I had to go back and fix it so my words were readable.  laugh.gif It was my own ignorance disgust.gif  but I wish there was a way to show that it was a grammatical repair or such and not comopletely{completely} laugh.gif  changing things around.

Well, one way you could do it, would be to change the colour of the parts you've corrected, but that's just time consuming and would probably look just as messy (and some more impressionable types may waste years of their lives trying to 'crack your code' wink2.gif ).  
Better just to give a quick description your edit in a post script.

I'll do that from now on. Thanks for idea as I have just started my first debate and did not know what to do to show what I had editited. Thanks again.

I read that the old scoring is gone from the debates. And now after the debate people will get to share their opinions on the debate. However I was wondering would there be a poll at the end of a debate to show how many people favor one side of the debate or the other? Or will we still have to scroll through peoples posts for that answer?

No, it's a case of wait for people to post and scroll through those.  
Unfortunately it seems that whilst many people will look, few will post.  I guess a poll could solve that problem of knowing how well you went, but I don't know if it's possible to add one when the debate changes to open status....

Unfortunately, I think the problem you'll find is that judging a debate on the basis of a poll might simply equate to a popularity contest.  Regardless of how well a debate is done, a prospective voter is more likely to vote for a friend than someone they don't know.  

Just a possibility to consider original.gif

Thanx Paranoid.
Makes sense. yes.gif  Didn't even think of that. I could see now how there could be a few flaws to doing a poll now that I thought into the matter.  disgust.gif

Well, back to the drawing board.  original.gif

Q: My debate partner will not respond. He put his introduction, I put mine, and he left me hanging for almost a week. What do I do now?

Either keep hanging or PM him to see if he's still interested in continuing the debate.  If you don't get a response (or he says he's no longer interested) you could ask the mods to close the debate for now, as in the case of this debate Link

How long does the other party get to reply? I mean we have been waiting for over a week for checktheevidence, but they failed to reply.

I say they lose.

ETA: sorry - didn't read this page before I posted. I still say they lose.
