Well, the first live debate will be done soon... between TUF and MrBrooks. Hopefully, if all goes well, it shall start in about 3 and a half hours, maybe a little more maybe a little less (probably more). The debate is a short (so the resolution won't be known yet).

Imma posting the link here in a few hours so everyone can watch if they want. This is the current system:

PRO - MrBrooks
CON - TUF
(Saying now, as it's not really too useful to either debater, but it'll save time and both can know beforehand)
Speaker - Me
Judge - Me and possibly someone else, depending on if anyone volunteers and whether I'd class them as a good voter.

There'll be about 6 spare spaces in the room for people to listen in.

Rules are there.
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.

Yes, but it's a short, so I cannot say until 15 minutes before the debate starts. Which would be in a couple hours or so.

This essentially is an impromptu debate. What will the style be? Will there be POI's, Cross-X or what?

Due to the format, unfortunately, no. If I could do an open mic, and trust the stability of online rooms, I would, but (and this is unless someone wants to pay for a $100/mo room) more than one person on the microphone at any time causes gigantic lag. The lag for mic speaking when two are at once is about ten seconds, which is a good sentence or two down the line.

Also, the room:
