As the month of October comes to an end I thought it would be a good idea to draw attention to some of the top debates we have had this past month. If you have read any debates in the past month you feel deserves recognition then nominate them here for the Debate of the Month award.

Rules:
- Members may select as many debates for nomination as they wish
- Members are encouraged to recommend their own debates if they feel it deserves nomination by posting it here, but may not give an official nomination for it.
- Debates should have been last updated within the past month
- Nominations will be tallied. The goal will be to select 5 debates which will be officially voted on in a separate thread.

I nominate my own debate with 1stlord on anarcho-capitalism. http://www.debate.org... I think he did very well, and it was a fun exercise on my part to argue about this subject in a formal debate with someone other than Lionheart.

I nominate this debate about Secession between 000ike and Mestari. It was truly a hidden gem. An unintentional forfeit led to it not showing up on the front page. However, the round was added into the debate so no forfeit actually hapenned.

Only 9 days left to vote!

So far we have...

Thett3 vs. F-16_Fighting_Falcon
There should be a minimal weight requirement for runway models.
http://www.debate.org...

1stLordofTheVenerability vs. socialpinko
Anarcho-capitalism is a preferable system of social and economics organization than [Mixed Market Capitalism]
http://www.debate.org...

000ike vs. Mestari
Secession is justified (morally)

The OP made a comment in a different post that made me want to revive this thread. There are a bunch of excellent debates out there and I thought I would bring a few more to the attention of the DDO community.

1) Bluesteel vs DoctorZhiva - gun ownership
http://www.debate.org...

This is one of the most intensely competitive and well-written debate that I have seen that sidesteps the boredom of another gun rights debate by taking a fresh and unique perspective.

2) Blackhawk vs kkjnay: Hunting
http://www.debate.org...

This one was decent.

3) Logic_on_Rails vs LarztheLoser: Confidence assessment marking
http://www.debate.org...

What if guessing on examinations were eliminated? Can Logic's new system solve the problem? Read on and find out. I don't know why I am advertising debates but people should really see it. It is one of the better ones out there?

4) Brian Eggleston vs Dappleshade: breast enhancement society
http://www.debate.org...

Who doesn't like boobs? Again, a must read.

Since the topic of voting for awards right before the official annual DDO awards came up in another thread I will simply leave this thread with the nominees. I still feel this is a good idea and should be done every month, and with the awards and elections coming up in a few weeks it would be a good opportunity to discuss it then. In the meantime if anyone has any other good debates this past month you are welcome to add it here. Pretty much all the ones I was thinking of have been mentioned.

BTW, no I did not forget jimtimmy's. He was just trolling.
