Hey all,

I feel that we need to make the minimul amount of debate time 1 day. I accidently accepted this debate http://www.debate.org... thinking it was a 2 day debate; and to my surprise, it was a 2 hour debate! I'm never going to have enought time to finish

ALWAYS CHECK THE TIME LIMIT BEFORE YOU ACCEPT!

Don't feel bad I was in a debate with a 10 minute response time.

Disagree. I did a 5 minute per round debate and it's kinda nice.

Your mistake, within your ability to fix. Ergo the site should be redesigned to accomodate you?

Vote: No.

That's your mistake, and it's not enough to remove the short time limit for posting an argument. I think 60-minute debates can be very good. I've had one with Danielle, but would like to do a lot more. It's a good way of finishing a debate quick and make use of the free time you have.

The problem is that you didn't read the terms of acceptance. Debates with limited time are fun and more like real life debates.

I would do 2hour rounds if I knew I had the time to make every round. I don't stay on my pc for that long.

Same. In order to do short debates you have to have time!
