After my debates start people opt and and the debates say "Debate Challenge Expired
Nobody accepted the challenge for this debate. You may edit and reinstate this debate by clicking the link below."

Than the whole debate besides my round 1 is deleted.

The most recent was with Mr.Infidel, and I also had another debate where the person didn't post in round 1. I assumed it was because they didn't post a argument. But Mr. Infidel did post a argument, and I already posted my round 2 argument, which somehow was deleted.

I feel like I'm being ripped off!!!

What do you want us to do about it? This stuff happens.

I suggest that the next time you want to debate someone, send them a message and have them confirm they will accept the debate before inviting them to the debate. Then, they can't simply claim "I didn't have time" or "I forgot" once you've put the work into making your first round.

I didn't invite them, they just accepted
