does that mean the issue was resolved, and they no longer want to debate? If so, why not delete their debate, instead of editing the title?

When the word "Resolved" appears in a debate (i.e., "Resolved: The US Government should adopt a flat tax), that means that the resolution is in the title.

It's really about like what WILL happen if AFF gets their way. A better way of explaining it is by citing an example of a bill from student congress (it's silly and made up, but still):

1. WHEREAS the population for purple monkeys is currently estimated to be 100,000
2. worldwide, and
3. WHEREAS projections for purple-monkey hunts in the next year are about 1,000,
4. and
5. WHEREAS purple monkeys have been shown to increase the amount of gold
6. worldwide by 110 % in a state of nature, be it
7. RESOLVED that the Congress assembled ban the hunting, poaching, and
8. slaughter of purple monkeys, and be it
9. FURTHER RESOLVED that any and all previous laws conflicting with this
10. legislation be declared null and void.

Does that help?
