Newcomer to DDO here, very excited to find this site.

It looks like there aren't very many open challenges at the moment, and I am not familiar with how most people start debates on DDO. I invite everyone to peruse my profile. Should you find an issue on which you think we could have a spirited debate please feel free to challenge me.

Cheers,
Don

Welcome to DDO.

You could start a debate of your own. Before doing so, I would advise reading a few opening rounds from the debates of veterans so you get a feel for what is expected.

Welcome to the community :)

Thanks JBlake,

I have been reading some of the popular debates around here and I am very impressed with the skill and intellect of DDO users. I think I will take some time tonight to compose an opening round for a new debate.

Cheers,

Don

Welcome, newcomer. :) It's always great to see new people joining. I'll take a look and see if there's anything we can debate. I'm not the greatest debater, but practice makes perfect, right?

Wrong. Only perfect practice makes perfection. Would you like to debate this?

If the practice is perfect, that kind of defeats the purpose, does it not?

My point is that practice does not necessarily create perfection.

I would create the resolution: "Practice makes perfect."

The emphasis is that only perfection in practice can lead to perfection in examination or test.

The phrase "practice makes perfect" does not translate to practice is necessary for perfection, but rather it is sufficient for perfection.

Practice is a means towards perfection, but practice will never make perfection.

I think it's that you have to be practicing towards perfection, which would be considered "perfect practice." My gym coach in middle school used the example of practicing shooting hoops with the completely wrong form, which would not lead to being perfect at all.
