So... what's our prize?

Pride that you accepted an interesting debate...

Were you expecting a medal orsomething? Its just fun to know.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

One way to get nominees would be to scan the month's debates for the ones with the greatest numbers of "likes." Oro_Ele has access to the debate database, or at least used to, so maybe he could do the scan.

I like the debate-of-the-month idea.

Agreed. Number of views should also be taken into account imo

No number of views. You get 1 view for every refresh, therefore, one of the two debators can refresh the debate however many times, and get that many more views.
