Now that most people who have wanted to join have joined, it would be a good time to start setting up the brackets. Some of you already have desired partners, and thus some of you will be joining a bracket as a group. There are 22 people so far, so I'll set up 6 different brackets. After everyone is in a group, any problems that arise with the set up can be dealt with.

I don't want this to drag on forever, as that would greatly impede the progress of the tournament. Consequently, after all the brackets have been set up, there will be 10 days for you to instigate your debate with your partner. Remember, you can debate anything you want. If you want to do an old debate that you've already done, that's fine. I'm really loose about the timeline, but I still think one is preferable in order to keep things moving along. Again, I'm open to suggestions.

Contestants

1. Freeman
2. wjmelements

Oh, and just so that people know, you don't have to join in sequential order. If you want to join bracket D or F, that's fine.

I think you should just randomize them. There should be online programs to do that.

Wow... Ok... Thanks. I have an idea. Let's randomize this, since it would apparently make things really easy. It set's up everything perfectly. However, if people want to get moved around for R1 to be with certain people, we can work that out. For example, I think the skeptic and LF are already paired up.

That would satisfy everyone.

Yes, randomize. It doesn't really matter.

I have an idea on topic selection. After five days, anyone left without an agreed-upon topic can challenge any other unassigned debater in the bracket to debate a topic upon which their profiles show disagreement. Note Profiles have a comment pop-up that some use to clarify positions. The Challenger is Pro and the challenged person must accept as Con.

mongeese and mongoose should debate each other about who is the better brother between them.

Ah, so this is the DDO debate that I've somehow not known about. I really want to participate, but I'm moving across country in literally like a week and I have no idea how long I will be without a computer. Plus I'm going to be way too busy.

If it starts without me, so be it. But know that I'm interested. If things happen in a timely manner, I will definitely participate.

I understand this, else ya'll wouldn't be so obsessed with me haha.

You'd think you'd want me in the tournament, that way you can debate me, prove me wrong on something, and just feel that much better about yourselves :)

I don't really know you that well. I guess you used to be philosophical. You've apparently upset a lot of people. Uhm..... I'm going to have to defer to the wisdom of Vi, J.Kenyon, Askbob and others. If they have mercy on you, then I'm fine with you joining.

Yes, I did used to be philosophical.
I know I have upset alot of people, but Some of those people still hold on to things. For example Vi, and askbob, have never liked me, even before all that stuff happened ten months ago, so they are going to be against me on practically anything I do or say.

I really love to debate, or else I wouldn't be on this site at all. I haven't done anything since my return to this site that should incriminate me, so I would like to ask you please to include me in this tournament.
Chances are, I may lose anyway, but I would at least like to have to chance to debate.

I am willing to do anything you would like to earn your trust. If not then I understand, just please consider what I have to say.

Alright, the brackets will be up in about an hour.

I'm assuming no one else wants to join.........

I've added Reasoning, btw - not officially, but I will soon.
