I would just like to say again a big thankyou everyone for your continuing contributions to the debate suggestions!

We do take every idea into consideration and use as many idea's as possible over a period of time.

If you are really keen to get a debate going and are looking for someone or have someone ready then please contact AztecInca or myself who will set it up for you asap.

Any one's suggestion that we do not use is often due to us feeling there would not be enough material involved. Other times we feel the suggestion is too broad and it needs to be more precise and again we then need your input. If this is one of your's and you can persuade us otherwise or give us something more detailed we will happily sort it out for you.

Keep those idea's coming! Without you the debates board wouldn't have as many exciting debates as it has done over its time here. :tu:

Hugs, Lottie and manly hugs from AztecInca.

beatle boy, We have tried this debate suggestion before but never got any real interest. I think its a good idea :tu: . If you can find people who would be interested in doing this debate with you I will happily set it up for you.

T-Nemesis, I am not sure if there would be enough material for this suggestion- Daylight saving... :hmm: . If you feel otherwise let me know :) .

I see again the Cannabis debate has come up, thanks for the reminder Division Bell. I think it might be worthwhile setting this up seeing as there is some interest.

Thanks guys! :wub:

No problem, it was something that one of the mods suggested, I was just stealing the credit for his idea :P

i don't know if this has been suggested, but i think there should be a debate about area 51- is it a top-secret weapons facility or the "place where they keep the aliens".

probably sounds dumb, but it was just an idea.

if it (by chance) happens to sound like a good idea, i would be interested in being involved in that particular debate.

LEADER BOARD

This is a list of all of the debators that participated in at least two debates.

(Wins - Losses). Average Score of Debates. Each Debate Score.

Galor ( 6 - 2 ) Average Score: 28.0. Debate Scores: 28.0.

Walken ( 5 - 0 ) Average Score: 34.6. Debate Scores: 36.6, 34.0, 33.3.

JohnnyBoyC ( 1 - 1 ) Average Score: 30.0 . Debate Scores: 30.0.

Saucy ( 1 - 4) Average Score: 30.2. Debate Scores: 34.6, 30.0, 26.0.

Stillcrazy ( 0 - 2 ) Average Score: 29.8. Debate Scores: 33.6, 26.0.

Hunterkiller 2001 ( 0 - 4 ) Average Score: 28.8. Debate Scores: 33.0, 31.0, 31.0, 20.0.

Some wins are achieved by opponent failing to continue debate.

Some losses are attributed to failing to continue a debate.

The Average Debate Score is: 30.4

A very unique situation is that galor participated in 8 debates. 5 times his opponents didn't finish. 1 time he won with a score of 28. AND ... 2 times himself, he didn't finish the debate.

The placement of rank above adheres to these principles. Total wins leads in rank. A tie in wins is decided by amount of losses, as in a ( 3 - 1 ) record outranks a ( 3 - 2 ) record. But, if, as above, many have the same record like ( 1 - 1 ), average score takes position. A (1-1) record with an average of 31.3 is defeated by a (1-1) record with an average of 34.0.

I like the Xbox360/PS3/Revolution debate suggestion. I'd love to see that.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about either console to feel comfortable putting up my hand (though I am an Xbox fan). But if there's anyone else out there...... it'll be a very interesting debate.

^Generally when there are "debates" about video-games consoles or games in the video games section of this forum they degenerate into slugging matches where each side just bags the other.

Although I do see the merit in such a debate and as Lottie has said if we find enough interest from members to debate it I see no reason for it not occuring as long as the above does not occur.

I wouldn't mind debating the gaming platform topics myself, BUT, it would of course come down too facts, brags, and name calling :lol:

I wouldn,t mind seeing or joining a debate on ...

Guns for civilians - good or bad!?

If an intruder breaks into your home and injures him/herself do they have the right to sue – Yes or No?

Should young offenders be tried as adults when they have committed adult crimes – Yes or No ?

Ridiculous suing, should there be an end to it? Yes or No?

I'm pretty new here so forgive me if these have already been done

Becky's Mom- Thanks for the idea's, got some good one's there that we could pursue! :tu: We have already done a gun debate recently but if you want to participate in any of the others let Aztec of myself know and we will set it up for you. :)

Solofront-

Which is never allowed on the debates board or the forum in general.

A general reminder that flaming and general bad manners to an opponent will result in instant disqualification from the debate and a warning.

Again If you would like to debate this topic and can find someone who does not turn it into a slanging match then Aztec or I will set it up for you. :tu:

XB360 good grapics good controller games are a bit to liner for me but gears of war looks SWEET!!! :w00t:

and last but not least the Revoulution need to see demo before grapihics are judgeable Nintendo really made a SWEET!! controller there games are same as Grapihcs need to know more before i make a decison
