They're too long. People don't read all of them.

This makes low voting participation a problem.

I usually vote on who has a cooler picture.

I'm a bad debater but you should vote for me anyway!

I disagree. Debates on this site are definitely too sh
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

My picture is the universally known Rafiki.
As can be seen here, Rafiki is a badass.

vote pro
I don't know what KRFournier's picture is, some vague eagle
KRFournier

Con

My Eagle has Flying and Vigilance, so Rafiki can't block.

Vote Con.

Pro

Your eagle was drunk, hit a tree, laid on the ground and Rafiki protected him from hungry hyenas out of the goodness of his heart.

Vote Pro.

Thank you for this short debate, zach12. It is a perfect example of how debates are not always too long on this site.

Eagle wins.

Reasons for voting decision: The last round wins it for KRF. Not ALL of the debates on DDO are too long, and pro only restated the claim, but did not provide any warrants.

Reasons for voting decision: So I gave all seven to pro in the hopes that someone else will be able to make this a tie. Debates like this don't deserve to be judged, no arguments and no humour
