  • Paranoid Android... No power in the verse can stop me...

Posted 14 January 2006 - 04:43 PM

This is a good idea!  It gets frustrating reading debates, only to see them die half way through.  I can only imagine how it is for you guys organizing it.

Can you clarify though what you mean by suspensions?  Suspensions from debates?  Or suspension from UM in general.  

thanks.

Regards, PA

As both a participant and judge, I whole heartedly agree with this new rule.


Let's hope it works out!

Thanks PA

To clarify the suspension covers ONLY the participation within the debates and NOT the rest of UM.

I agree with this fully.

It seems people jump right in before realizing what it means to commit to the debate. I have lost count of the number of debates that have simply faded out. Even one I was involved in with UniversalParadox, on the subject of Can Video Games Cause Violent Behaviour? I will be more than willing to continue this debate, if UniversalParadox wants to. And considering we’re both Debate Judges, it would be good to set an example!

^^^ Hi,

You can participate in as many or as little number of debates as you wish whilst as a member on UM. However we do advise that a person only participate in a maximum of 2 debates at a time. original.gif
