Following discussions with Larz and with Airmax, I will be taking on the organisation of this single tournament on an emergency basis due to my past experience.

Following tvellalott's decision to drop out, a last-minute place has become available. Please PM me if interested.

All rules stand as they were in the preceding threads (http://www.debate.org... and http://www.debate.org...).

Therefore, resolutions must be PM-ed to me by the end of July 19th (GMT +14, or BST +13).

Contact me with any queries!
I'm back (ish).

Tomorrow is the deadline for me to be sent debate resolutions by PM. I only have two so far. Debaters whose resolutions I have not received by the end of July 19th on GMT+14 will be penalised. The only exception to this is debates involving RocketEngineer.

Tomorrow is also the first day on which you can send debate challenges. Please remember the following when setting up your debate(s):

- A link to your debate should be sent to me by PM
- Your debate should contain 4 rounds of 8000 characters
- The first round is acceptance only
- The response time is 72 hours and the voting period is 1 week

So as to make it clear that this is a tournament debate the instigator's R1 should begin with the following:
This debate forms part of the Official DDO Prepared Championships for Summer 2013. Please see the forums for details.

Good luck!
I'm back (ish).

Would it appear both are playing Devil's Advocate for this debate?

If so the debate should be quite an interesting read.

Yep, we both are playing devil's advocate.

I am arguing that abortion is not murder whereas Stephen is arguing that it IS murder.

I don't like that phrase. I'm a debater: I'll argue arguments I do not agree with if I think I can present them convincingly enough. If you learn from a debate, I've done my job.

Any debates which have not yet been started need to start now, please. The burden is on the INSTIGATOR to instigate the debate (duh).

On another note, GOP is unfortunately dropping out for reasons I have been asked not to specify. His debates will count as forfeits from him - so if you were drawn against him, congratulations, you just won a point. (This doctrine will be employed for any future competitiors who drop out / go AWOL.)

Time to state the obvious: tournament competitors, you may not vote on each others' debates. (We're not having anybody voting for someone in an attempt to get an 'easier' R2 draw!)

Executive decision! Noumena is officially dead.

Unless I hear from him in the next very soon, his debates will count for forfeit. Debates were meant to start by Friday (*cough* JustinAMoffatt and Stephen_Hawkins *cough*).

Good to see debates are progressing, though please don't make me name and shame again.

As soon as the last R1 debate leaves the voting period (or one debater gains a lead which can be considered insurmountable), I will use Larz's pre-determined formula to determineour top four, who will go through to Semis. In the unlikely event that I go through to the Semis, I will ask Airmax to determine who debates who, otherwise I will do it with names in a hat.

So to answer your question: when the last debate enters the PVP.

I came to this site for good intelligent debate, not drama, and unfair tactics used in an insulting way to try and win debates. If you cared so much about winning this debate, you could have asked politely and I would have told the voters to vote for you. But this is the second time I have experienced abuse at the hands of the moderator of this tournament, as well as from another in the games forum. This is not worth it to me.

Good luck with your tournament. Hopefully you will not have to use many other unfair tactics to try and win debates in the future.
