You can only do one on one right?

Why is it like this?!
If I had to make a signature it wouldn't be this.

The above statement is false.

The first statement is true and the below (fourth) statement is true.

The second statement is true.

All of that was a lie.

Just kidding, none of it was a lie.

Just kidding.

Just kidding, I'm not kidding.

I'm only kidding, I'm just joking.

If this has begun to piss you off please refer to the first message for guidance.

Team debates are something this is being considered. Its a significant project, and there are many details still to be worked out, so it will take some time.

I agree. Having a Catholics vs. Protestants team debate would be epic, especially if you switched each round and such.

Team debates are something this is being considered. Its a significant project, and there are many details still to be worked out, so it will take some time.

If it's something that's a goal, couldn't there be a way for users to create a team through the existing method? To use the team Catholics example, there could be a single Catholics team leader; that person is allowed the logins for the user, despite the fact that technically it's a second SN. All posts go through the team captain, who can be changed/ousted through a voting process of all team members (perhaps PM or forum based). All posts by the Team ID would have to include the captain and who on the team composed the response.

************************************************

Example (with real screen names for extra verisimilitude!):

Team Catholics
R4:
(Captain: alwaysmorethanyou) (R4 Post: GarretKadeDupre)

"Catholicism is the best because etc. etc. etc."

*****************************************************
While the Captain would be responsible for those addendums of citation, they would not necessarily be otherwise responsible for the text within the round.

Granted, it might be a bit of a clumsy system, but it seems it wouldn't require much by way of site changes?

W/L ratio and ELO might be a problem, of course. But it's just a thought?

It's an interesting idea and in the mean time if members wanted to create an account specifically to be used to debate as a team for a specific debate or multiple debates I think that would be fine and an interesting thing to watch, even if not ideal. Members would just have to contact me so that I'm aware of the purpose of the account.
