===Rules===

-Seeding will be determined based on current ELO rankings with post R1 opponents being decided based off of your position in the bracket. The bracketing system will be essentially the same as the one from my first ELO tourney (http://www.debate.org...).

-Don't sign up unless you'll be active for at least the next month.

-The instigator will have 3 days to send a preliminary challenge for the first debate.

-The voting period on all debates must be set to one week. If you wish to set the period longer that's fine, however the period of voting as pertaining to the tournament will only be one week.

-If both debaters cannot agree on a topic to debate, the first issue which they disagree on their profile will be used. If they agree on all sissus or have not filled them out, they may both submit a resolution they would be willing to debate to me and I will randomly pick one of them.

-Since there are 12 debaters in a bracketed tourney, the final round will consist of three debaters. The way I intend to resolve this is for the highest ranked debater to get a bye for the round. That means the lower seeded debaters will face each other with the winner facing the higher seeded in the final round.

*The last ELO Tourney I hosted never technically ended unfortunately since Raisor and I never did our finals debate. Hopefully this one will make it to the end.

Do I qualify on the ELO board? If I do, I would like to get back into debating again.

I am in the airport on my way to AIT, and am not sure how much free time I will be getting, but I've heard we get quite a bit.

Sign me up if I qualify (I don't even know what ELO is), and I will let you know before round 1 if I end up being too busy.

@TUF, you qualify sure. There's no stringent ELO necessary to signup.

PSST. What is elo? Without the google search option readily available, I don't want to scrounge around the forums to find it, just to see what it is about.

ranks you based on who your opponents are. The better the opponent, the higher your ELO score becomes. Your elo score is listed under your debate record. You're 4,005, nice.

I'm tempted to think FT and Raisor are the same person. I mean, what are the odds of two philosophically adept pragmatists on the site? P.S. the signups so far give me great confidence that this tourney will produce some worthwhile debates.

I would really love to do this but I'm just about to get REALLY REALLY REALLY busy (in fact I'm already lamenting the several debates I'm already engaged in -_- ). I was going to take a hiatus once my debates/ mafia game was over. BUT. If you need 1 more spot filled then fiiiiiine I guess I can seriously reconsider. If this could just be delayed a few weeks lol I could but ugh it's just such a bad time :(

I can't give anywhere near the attention this kind of thing requires right now. Next time, maybe. >.>

Well, there is no actual way i can prove to you I'll be around in a month other than giving my word, which isn't worth much considering you don't know me.

Maybe I'll join in for Tourney III.

Sorry, I have a pretty heavy class load coming soon. I wanted to debate more during my break, but only got one in before the holidays took over.

Don't worry you're not the underdog any more that's the lowest rank.
