I'll be honest, as much as I absolutely love this site (as it helps fill an urge I have to debate) I feel an area it is weak at satisfying, is in the realm of my desire to speak.

Are there any others who feel this need to speak while on this site as well? or is this just me?

Any way, Let me know and if so I would love to have some video debates with you!

@Hello-Orange:

We should put on suits and do official speeches! That would be so cool...

But imagine a real time video debate? Now that would be AWESOME.

The site would likely need to get a lot bigger to justify the spending for that kind of bandwidth.

Real time would be most preferable. But both seem fine to me.

Technically, you can do video debates (not real time though), by uploading to youtube, then posting the youtube videos to the debate.

I agree! We should totally do that some-time.
PM me and we can set it up.

The posted debate defeats the point, in my mind. I'd want to do debates in real time, like I'm used to, where you have to think off the top of your head. In the posted debate, the debaters are just READING their arguments off the computer in monotonic voices. Adds nothing...

Maybe; but since I really think not too many people have the capability to have a video debate anyway, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Given on the alternative most laptops do come with built in web cams now days, so that logic might not be so strong :I

I agree with bluesteel. That defeats the purpose a bit.

Agreed. If this did happen, there would have to be thirty minute time limits mandatory.

Or it would also be neat if DDO simply made an entirely new function for one-on-one real time debates.

Perhaps they could include a chat section (which could be upgraded to video chat). And then, one could simply record a debate on that and upload it as a debate.

You see, I'm not opposed to that :D that's great idea!

What if some people got together and did a policy video debate? That would be so epic.

Some people already do policy here, but if the average person here saw it on video they would say "WTF is this?!"

Like I said, I'm still down for a video debate, and await your challenge.

As far as real time debates, you could always go to a streaming video chatroom and just tell a couple of DDO members to go there and watch, and judge.

Hey Hello-Orange
I would like to have video debate with you, I would suggest we arrange the debate in the same way the 2 guys in the link of the second post in this thread did.
I would prefer not to show my face in the video but instead add a separate video to accompany my voice.
If this is agreeable to you then we just have to find a subject to debate. :)

I do policy. It's way better than this when it comes to education. But I like debating on literally anything and using stupid semantics, lol.

I would absolutely adore watching a live online policy round. I never did Policy in high school, but I know the workings behind it and I've watched a few rounds. It really is a fun style :D

Sounds good. The PM button below your name is greyed out, and when I move my mouse over it I get a textbox saying: "Hello-orange is not accepting messages at this time."

I do ld but Texas is a policy area. I do feel the "style" just makes you smarter over time, but I feel its bit too stressful, having to struggle just to understand people and deal with all the crazy arguments people come up with. I miss freshmen year when we talked normally and actually tried to be persuasive. But its a thing of the past. Now its all Biopolitics and Skep.

I am going to start a video debate called "Prank wars", basically to determine who is the biggest @sshole.

Each round the debater will pull a prank on a friend, or relative, and whoever has the best pranks at the end of the round wins.

No copying from youtube. Before I post this anonomously, is there any takers?
