I know a lot of people are tired of these kinds of debates (there is already one in question in the challenge period), so I thought I would change things up a bit.

The resolution is that this debate will receive the most views of any debate on DDO before voting period. Each argument, my opponent must post one debate that has more views than this debate. If not, I win.

The definitions are:

Views: The number that is in the box "Open Debate" (in challenge period, will change as it goes through the different spaces. It will be X number of views, not X number of people who view.

Voting Period Begins: The second my opponent posts his Round 4 argument, the moment that this debate transitions from debating period to voting period.

Rules:

1. A forfeit of any kind (computer or otherwise. This is defined as when my opponent does not post a link refuting me) results in the other person getting all 7 points of each individual vote.
2. This debate will have 4 rounds with 24 hours to post each argument, so this will have no more than a week to be available.

I want to break the viewing record!

The first two rounds I posted weren't arguments, they were just me making silly comments and trolling for fun. Now, if you said every round I had to post a link, then I would have lost. However, you just said every argument, and this is my first actual argument.

Now, you said that I would forfeit if I didn't post a link refuting you, well here is a link (and remember, you said I had to post one every argument not every round, and this is my first argument).

This debate we are engaged in currently has been viewed 17,013 times. However, here is a debate with 27,189 views:

http://www.debate.org...

So, since I am and will be posting a link every argument (which doesn't necessarily mean every round, because my opponent didn't specifiy this) I am winning the debate so far, because the link I provided takes you to a debate with more views.

PS. Every round from now on from me will be an argument.

Well, the current debate I am engaged in only has 34,640 views. However, this debate (http://www.debate.org...) has 82,010 views.

So, my opponent seemed to have forfeited, but I still feel like this was a worthy win for pulling this off. It seems all I had to do was obtain views for any debate that already had more views than this one, so I knew I had the advantage going in this because I knew my opponent was going to have to work much harder to gain the views necessary for this debate.
Thus, the resolution has been negated.

even that Gay Marriage debate with the most VOTES out of any debate does not have the most views. That record is STILL held by "applejack is best pony", with 1.2 million views.
