<h4><font face=red>Ave.</font></h4>

I'm gonna post some easy tips in the debate. I'm gonna accept, and argue in the first round, and explain the burden of proof in this debate.

<h4><font face=red>The Burden of Proof.</font></h4>

Pro is asking me to help, and if I help him, or try, then I win this debate. My opponent wins if I do not provide anything, but if I do provide something, I win this debate, as that is the resolution.

<h4><font face=red>Some tips.</font></h4>

I'm gonna put some tips here.

1. The Burden of Proof is important. If the burden of proof is on Pro, then Pro needs their arguments to be standing at the end, and Con needs to rebut them. Con is not required to provide offense (though I prefer they do provide offense.) If the Burden is shared, both sides are required to have offense.

2. How to construct a case.

I'm gonna do some of the basics, so you can be a okay debater in DDO.

A framework: A framework is very important in a debate. A framework is a link to your arguments, or basically, it is an introduction. It is important, and it needs to be constructed

Arguments: I prefer around 3 arguments in the debate, the first argument needs to be the most important, the second needs to be the least important, and the third needs to be the second important. All arguments need a claim, a warrant, and an impact. A claim, is bascially a claim in your argument, a warrant is a source to help your argument, and the impact is how your arguments link to the resolution. This is the main point of a debate, there doesn't need to be much other things then that. ALWAYS SOURCE YOUR ARGUMENTS!!!

Check your grammar, too. In the botomm, there is "Check your spelling", and it checks your spelling.

3. Conclusion

A conclusion needs to explain all your points, why your arguments link, and the summary.

Okay, I think that is enough for this round, I'll just post some links to help you debate, and vote. I hope you enjoy DDO!

I didn't know you could color text in DDO. (Also, apparently you can somehow make buttons as well.) Though I probably won't use color, or buttons.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro ff many times, so conduct to Con. This used to be good enough, but who knows now. Maybe I have to provide examples where Pro forfeited. Hopefully someone will report this vote so we can stop this injustice.
