Rules for qualification:

A- Must have been on DDO for at least three months prior to registering for this tourney.

B- Must have completed at least five debates on DDO prior to registering for this tourney.

Exceptions can be made though. Like if someone has only been on the site for two months but has done ten or twenty high quality debates or someone who has done little debating but contributes regularly to the forums, they might be allowed. The rules for qualification are merely to safeguard the tourney from newbs or members who are not interested in debating.

Patrem, you're debates are pretty good so an exception can be made. You, unlike so many others, at least put some effort into your debates and seem to be somewhat serious about the material.

Also, darkkermit, I am for now. I don't know if I'll leave again but I do know that I'll be back at the very least until this tourney is over or until it completely falls apart.

That will be between you and your opponent. Once everyone signs up, I will make a bracket with randomized partners. Once that happens, you may choose with your opponent what you will debate.

I'll be away without internet access from the 13th to the 20th, am I disqualified?

If you don't think you will be able to make the deadlines, don't sign up. If you think you can then welcome aboard.

Tim, that was a serious question. How quick do you expect debaters to be for each round? If you say "there is no set time limit," then surely Bieber could join up and tell his opponent to wait until after he comes back to the internet.

An exception can be made for Beiber because I enjoy her debates. However I don't want this to turn into Freeman's tourney where things stall out for months.

I would like to join this tournament; I have attempted to do as many high-quality debates as possible and currently am in the 93rd percentile.

OMGJustinBieber: You do not accept PMs, so I could not send you a message asking what topic you would like to debate. How about compulsory immunization? It is an interesting, but simple topic.

Before everyone starts their debates, please set your voting periods to only two weeks.
