I'll keep this brief. do you want to do online, live debates, rather than the common text ones? Want a debate where you can actually speak to the audience, rather than write to them? Want to have the rush of putting your opponent on the spot in a debate?

After the first live debate we did yesterday between MrBrooks and TUF, I am saying this to see if more people want to have a go and get these on the way. The sign-up isn't for a tournament, but for saying if you're willing to do debates. The debates are essentially seven minutes a piece, 3 rounds, with the final round being 5 minutes.

Once we get four or five+ people, then we can start a common comunity to get these debates going with some consistency and speed.

Anyone up for doing a quick on1 right now?

If you can get a second debater and someone who can record, I can judge again.

Do you use a Google+ Hangout or something? I have recording capabilities. I might consider doing something like this. In fact, I've never been a part of live debating. I've only ever done written debates here. So, I'm actually curious to see if I suck at it. :)

We need to get a youtube channel going. Our goals should be to get hosted by Polipop; It'll be really healthy for DDO. I might send some people in my debate club this way too, so they can get some hands on experience.

That way we can keep record of everything.

When are we doing the next one?

If anyone wants to judge or wants to debate, then we can do it as soon as two people are willing. Probably this time tomorrow will be in a debate, unless people want to do it before.

Also, if you don't want to do impromptu debates, you can write on the spreadsheets which debates you would want to do.

If Zaradi wants to judge, and TUF wants to debate an impromptu again, then we just need one more person. And everyone who wants to watch, of course.

I'll be willing to judge a debate.

Can you do it around 8pm UK Time? Which would be roughly:

12am California time
7pm Florida Time
5 am Sydney Time

I don't know people's timezones.

Hmmm...apparently yes. I suppose.

OK, I've got two judges then, which means we'll get this sorted out very easily.

If anyone wants to do a debate, then that'd be a great use. I can't judge cos i'm playing football, but I've got a mate to help out.

I'm on CST, which means probably 6 or 5.

Is that still good for you?

As of right now, I'm good for whenever you decide to kick things off.

I'd like to do one if at all I can, so long as it is arranged for New Zealand Standard Time (UTC+12) so that it doesn't fall at some ungodly hour of the morning.

Yeah, but I wasn't on the Excel roster so if somebody could add me (it's View-only from my computer for some reason) then that would be great.

If that is the case, then let me just remind myself on my profile. And I have to ask: is there a formal procedure for the judging?

Is there a recording/some sort of software to allow us to access the live debate again and again?

If not, that will be quite a trouble for me. :(

1) Take notes in the debate so you can vote. Don't say you'll watch it eight times because that firstly makes judging unfair and secondly makes judging take ages. It's unfair because if you can't make a point clear or memorable in a debate, then that goes against you, nothing else. Just saying this now, in case.

2) If anyone can record it, then that'd be a massive help. I'd really like this to be recorded, and I will upload it then.

3) Is it then Zaradi v TUF, man-is-good and my mate (Ridge) judging. Impromptu debate.

Debate is in a couple hours. Do come and get ready. Message me on skype in, say, thirty minutes, and I can help you, but I'm not going to be here after that. AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO RECORD.
