If "video debates" offered as a new debate format would you use it?

Do you think the feature would be adopted / useful / interesting?

If Video debates worthwhile... how do you see the format / rounds working?

Probably eventually.

Idk if it will be adopted but it would be cool.

Well they should be done live with a certain time limit to speak per round.

Who are you?

Thank you for the warm welcome. I am pleased to meet you. Do you greet all new members with such accusatory tone? My aim is not to intimidate.

Your regurgitation of my profile statistics is accurate:

>> I am a new member to the community.
>> I joined two days ago.
>> This thread contains my first forum post.

While I prefer video debate (I derive pleasure watching my debate-prey crushed by superior intellect), I will soon unsheathe my mindful sword and unleash a wave of debate destruction greater than David Hasselhoff after a 4 day bender.

Cool beans Donkeydo, anyways, I would like to see your mind-sword cut through an unworthy opponent. You should do a video debate. If you fail, you will be judged as a dog with a big bark and no bite.

Yes, yes, and they already function through youtube. The only way to build on that is to have a native video uploading system.

Your reply doesn't sound like someone who is new to this site. I find it highly unlikely that you joined this site two days ago and two days later, the first thing you do is make a post about video debates. You haven't actually started a debate challenge, you haven't posted in any forums where there was a discussion going.

It is entirely possible that you really are a new member. However, it is neither plausible nor likely. Your tone of response doesn't seem like one from a new member either. My post wasn't meant to be accusatory, it was an enquiry of someone who looks awfully suspicious based on the profile information.

In any case, good luck with your live debates.

Can somebody answer my question? Does it cost money to rent the online rooms used in live debates? Apparently when Stephen hosts he rents a room.

Anyone can use my room for live debating as I think some people have done in the past. Its completely free for all concerned.
