I realize that the 'Debaters List' has been compiled, is there any way to still get involved?  if there are any no shows or drop-outs I would like to join in. thumbsup.gif

well, we have the final list of 20 debaters and once the reg. season is done, we're gonna go into the playoff mode and we'll chose eight winners to go into that.  Once the debate champion is crowned, I believe me and Saruman will pick a few who didn't take this board seriously off the list, opening up the door for many new prospects.  Since you applied before hand, we'll keep you in mind Chauncy and you'll be the first one added to any new spots.  Just gotta wait awhile until the playoffs are over.  For right now, we're not accepting any more debaters.

Saruman, in the future would it be possible to choose what you would like to debate for?

no, no, no, thats what makes it fun. although i think somebody who is forced to debate for an opinion they dont have should automatically get one point, or something.

well, that's the way I put everything together.  I would like to thank my brilliance in putting together debates.  I book them better than anyone thus far, but I'm not cocky so i'll stop bragging  tongue.gif

I sort of know what everyone has in opinions to certain things and if you're against life after death, you'll probably end up debating for life after death.  I'm just that evil.  Muhahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahaha (breath) hahahahahahahahahaha!

Personally, i liked when SaRuMaN set up debates a bit better than the ones that you organized. Choosing who gets what side should have been done with the flip of a coin, thats how it was done in the beginning.

Also, your debate openers are a bit...leading, which i did not appreciate.For example: A debate on violence in in media affecting real life violence or not should not have any examples in the opener for the debaters to start with. It looks like you were just a bit over-enthusiastic about the debates.

I'd Like to Second that  thumbsup.gif

Also your tactfulness in PM's were a bit off

I.e. 1)Rememeber your in a debate, Post Soon
      2)Please Post
      3)Gonnae post Now
      4)Why haven't you posted yet ?

Etc.

If you continue in your role it might be nice to add , "How you doing ?" , "Just a reminder........"  "Noticed you hadn't replied in a while"  to list a few

its nice to be nice , sometimes  thumbsup.gif

There is actually going to be an overhaul of the way in which the debates are organised and run in the near future, the current system has worked to an extent, but too many debates have remained unfinished, and some even unstarted. All the debates will be moved to an archive subforum soon, and then we'll see about starting over.

New everything...including organizers? I'm not quite sure about the responsibility right now but, maybe when the next debates board is up, i might consider taking it on

might want to set time limits on the debates. That way folks can plan on finishing in a set time frame.

I know all folks don't sit and stare at comp screens all day like me, but if there were a limit it would make for better planning.

If ya need help, I will more than be happy to do whatever I can to assist.

Posted 08 June 2004 - 11:44 PM

Time limits would be great! I get sick of waiting almost a month between replies, one week should be adequate time to respond..
If there's anything I can do here count me in..

Yes, i'd like a time limit on the debate too.
I'm at fault in this, in my debate 'Life After Death' (which is one post away from completion, shameless plug!) i took over 2 weeks to respond, mainly cause i couldn't get around to it. Even I think that's unacceptable.
