I think that Beauty Pageants should be banned. Can people provide me with reasons for and against it? Thanks.

First of all to remind you how a debate works you must, as the affirmative, set up a logical reason why beauty pageants should be banned. In leu of these arguments you fail to uphold the burden of proof, failing to uphold said burden results in a default vote for the CON.

So with that cleared up once you present your arguments I will be happy to refute them and present a case.

Not to be rude but my opponent has yet again failed to uphold the burden of proof nor present arguments. I will wait gladly wait another round for her to post her case, but in my opinion failure to do so after that point can lead one to conclude she is uninterested in this debate and thus deserves a loss.

My opponent has failed to provide her arguments I will hold out for another speech for her to do so, but in absence of these arguments please vote CON, furthermore I feel a default conduct vote for CON is appropriate.

Thank you and I look forward to this debate.

I'm a new member, but I figured it out, and I have ADHD.
If I can do it, I would think they could.
O.o
However, a tutorial may be a good idea.

I'm with you!

But actually that sounds like a legitimate idea.

Like a tutorial on your first debate... that would be awesome!

Maybe we should start posting a tutorial for new members?

Step 1: You must pick your debate topic.

Step 2: You must pick a side.

Step 3: You must make an argument to prove your side.

Step 4: You must refute your opponents arguments.

Hmm? Or at least a basic quiz on debate format =P.
