Pro

= First round =
This round is acceptance, presentation of the resolution, and Con's first five questions. Con may not post arguments, framework, explanations, definitions or anything else. Just the resolution and his or her first five questions.

If anything else is posted it will constitute a full forfeiture of all seven points of the debate.

I repeat, Con should only post the resolution and his or her first five questions in his or her first round.

= Rules =
1. No video in the first round.

2. All videos have a maximum time limit of 5 minutes for speeches. The video itself can be slightly longer, so long as the actual speech doesn't exceed 5 minutes.

3. Keep debate jargon to a minimum. If the jargon can be understood in the context of an argument then it's acceptable, but don't use debate lingo in place of actually explaining an argument.

4. The BOP is shared between the Pro and the Con. Con may not simply refute Pro's arguments, he or she must provide their own arguments as well.

5. In the event that Con presents an abusively skewed resolution, Pro reserves the right to present a different resolution entirely. This does not mean that Pro gets to change the resolution just because he dislikes it, it must be legitimately abusive. A warrant of abuse will be provided in Pro's round 2 if this turns out to be the case.

6. Pro and Con may also post up to 5 questions each round in the text portion of the debate. Con will post his or her first five questions in the first round, and will not post any questions in the final round. Pro will post his final set of questions in round five. This way each debater gets the chance to ask 20 questions and have them answered.

7. Answers to questions may be provided in either the video or the text portion of the debate.

Con

I accept.

RESOLVED: Luna is the Superior Alicorn Princess.

1. Do you generally live your life during the day or during the night?
2. Which Alicorn Princesses betrayed her world in an attempt to rule over all the land?
3. Why is Luna a more pivotal character than Twilight Sparkle?
4. What makes Luna superior to Cadence?
5. In general, which Alicorn Princess would you prefer to be?

I wish my opponent best of luck.

I'm not even going to lie. I don't really want to do a video debate anymore.
I've been trying to get up the will to do this for the last few days and I just can't.

I forfeit. Sorry for your time con.

Con

It's all good.

But if you change your mind, we still have three rounds left.

And also ponies.

So you know.

Questions have to be answered.

There are 3,000, not 8,000.

I'm not going to reject a resolution just because I dislike it.

This is not a joke debate or a troll debate, but the resolution can be silly.

There has to be ground for the other debater to make a legitimate case. If there isn't I'll change the resolution.

So just to clarify, I can't do a resolution like "the Holocaust was a good thing" or "Twist is best pony"?

Can I do anything about ponies?

How about Star Fox?

Or Piers Morgan?

Cool. I guess that was supposed to be for me, but I don't know anything about it.

I dont understand the format of this debate.

Con gets to pick any resolution? There are videos in addition to the 8k character limit? What are these questions supposed to be and does it matter if they arent answered?
