Rules

1.)
No one will be disqalified for bad conduct. If a debater wishes to spend his time insulting the other debater, it will only hurt them.

2.)
The voting period on all debates must be set to two weeks. If you wish to set the period longer you may do so, however the period of voting as pertaining to the tournament will only be two weeks.

3.)
All debaters except for those participating in the specific debate must vote on each debate before the round can end.

If you are unable to vote, simply let me know and I will send a poxy voter to voe accordng to your specifications.

4.)
Partners will be chosen based on number of wins, experience, and overall number of debate.

5.)
If both debaters cannot agree on a topic to debate, the first issue which they disagree on their profile will be used.

If they agree on all issues or have not filled them out, they may both submit a resolution they would be willing to debate to me and I will randomly pick one of them.

6.)
The tournament will have single elimination.

7.)
As far as voting goes, everyone will vote as they would normally. Votebombing will not be tolerated and is one of the only grounds for disqualification.

8.)
The number of rounds in every debate will be a minimum of 3. The maximum would obvously be 5.

Suggestions will be appreciated.

True, but it did finish. And once Rd. 2 is done the field will be reduced by a significant amount. When I decide to do my tournament (which will be by invite only) im gonna institute very stringent rules.

As an aside, is there a reason why these are not run like actual tournaments where you forfeit if you do not participate in the time limits?

I am supposed to debate Reasoning, but he has messaging and his profile blocked.

I only happened to stumble on this thread, otherwise I wouldn't know that the tournament had started.

Having no time limits to agree to a topic or to respond to a challenge means another ordeal of months and months. Over in Freeman's tournament, J.Kenyon just let my challenge to him expire after a week, so I get to start over. I will never join another tournament without time limits, period.

Roy, I believe the other thread indicated that f debating doesnt start in like the next day or so, then its a forfeit. Or I could be wrong, pinko can you make a clear time limit rule?

Debaters must agree on a topic to debate by this Friday(May 13). After a topic has been agreed upon, the instigator has 10 days to send the challenge(May 23). The contender will then have until the challenge expires to accept(May 30). All debates must be started no later than May 31.

That seems like a rly long time to get one round stared. Shouldnt it be more that Rd. 1 should be ending my May 31st?

Round 1 will be the largest round so it will take the longest. For R2 it will be like half the time and then a similar drop in time for the next round.

Reasoning, if you are out there somewhere, you need to contact me by Wednesday, May 11th so that we can agree on a topic by the May 13th deadline.

I'm afraid it's going to be impossible for me to participate in the tournament. Sorry guys :( :(

I hope it does not cause too many problems though. :(

I'll send him a PM about it so hopefully we can minimize the dropouts.

BlackVoid/socialpinko - If you can find a replacement that would be great. If not I'll just open up the challenge and maybe the person who accepts will want to participate in the tournament.

Yo, yo. Hitting up your profile I think we have a lot of things we could chat about.
