20 is a lousy number to go with it. Make it 16 and include some alternates (because people WILL drop out). Bracketing will be much of a headache for you that way.

Freeman's tournament is taking a long time because the rules arnot known ahead of time. I don't want to waste time evolving rules. some rule issues are:

Is it single or double elimination?
How are opponents chosen in each round?
How are topics chosen?
If a topic is not agreed upon, how is it resolved? (Suggest using the first issue in profile issues list on which the pair disagree.)
How much time is allowed to present a case before a forfeit is declared?
Who votes?
Is voting conventional or all seven points?
How long is the voting period?
Will a participant be kicked out for declaring a vote in retribution for another debate? Is any other behavior disqualifying?
How many rounds in the debates?
What are the rules for burden of proof, dropped arguments, and other fine points?

There are probably other issues I've forgotten. I like the tournament concept, but it's a mess without some structure.

I will be posting a debate tournament probably after maurader's is over. Anyways I'm not sure if people will choose their topic or if there will be an overarching theme. If anyone has any ideas please post them.
