Oh wow you're fast.

1. I made a mistake by accepting some debates I never intended to accept...

2. Overall, I'm terrible at debating.

3. I need to focus on a different task at the moment.

I'd encourage you to keep at it. We all fail at most things the first time we try them... it's about not giving up that counts.

If your opponent agrees I can reset these debates for you.

Just keep at it, you'll get better. This is a great place to learn.

That's fair. I know a lot of members spend far too much time on the site and do need to focus on other things.

If you don't have time, you don't have time. Yet, you can still leave your account open, and return whenever you're like...not that you can't reopen a closed account, but still, it's a sort of mental door closing, innit?

Don't focus on the elo, focus on your own self. The elo is just comparative anyway.

I don't have a particularly high one...I only do debates I'm particularly interested in, and I don't set up a lot of them because I am TERRIBLE at thinking up a good resolution. So mine's not too high either. There's a good community, with some good thought and ideas, in a place specifically set up to let those clash...

Here's the thing about ELO's... it's a better metric than the percentile ranking, but it still only accounts for wins/losses. It doesn't reflect how much effort was put into the debate, or the debate's intellectual depth. So, don't worry about the ELO. Worry about learning stuff.

Pretty much this. While I like the ELO system and believe it's a far better system than the percentiles, it isn't an exact metric for weighing debate ability.

So don't focus too much on that... Have fun debating and learn what you can. The stats ultimately don't matter.

Closing my account soon after a week or two, I'll try to get some good debating in.

Any particular reason?

Oh wow you're fast.

1. I made a mistake by accepting some debates I never intended to accept...

If your opponent agrees I can reset these debates for you.

Well never mine actually, my opponent did agree to not have anyone vote on that...
2. Overall, I'm terrible at debating.

Just keep at it, you'll get better. This is a great place to learn.

Still terrible. A petty 3,000 elo

-__- really?! ^^ go look at my debates. I haven't won any.. I don't care though.. If you always make it about winning or getting that high percentage you'll never accept losing .. And until you can accept that, this'll be your outlook on life.. It's not bout winning... Real winners can accept losing... And I know you are a real winner, right? So don't you quit on us or YOURSELF! You keep pressing forward! Buut, it's your decision..
3. I need to focus on a different task at the moment.

That's fair. I know a lot of members spend far too much time on the site and do need to focus on other things.
Sure.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

Ummm?... Is that including ours??

...

Why would you think this? I made the debate, never accepted one accidentally. How do I "accidently" make a debate questioning a major religion?

Was just making sure kiddo ;) that's all...

2. Overall, I'm terrible at debating.

Are you serious right now? Cause what I see so far on our debate, you know your stuff...! Don't give us that lame excuse mijo :/

Assuming you're a Christian after that, I obviously don't know enough...

Ummmm, and who told you this??...

3. I need to focus on a different task at the moment.

Like I mentioned before, no need to close account... Take a break.. As long of a break as you want and then when you think your ready to return just log back in :)

Then troll it, hell it might make you famous. Thats kinda what happened to me :P

Out of my charector. As you may know, I'm not particularly runner either.
2. Overall, I'm terrible at debating.

Dude you have 6 losses.... I HAVE 93

You also have 500 debates, and a 100 percentile ranking.
3. I need to focus on a different task at the moment.

Such as?

Private.

We have the exact same ELO, and I hardly think it can be called terrible. I've also found you to be a pretty good debater. I understand if you have other things you need to attend to, but why couldn't you just take a break from the site then?

The difference is that I lost 6 while you lost 1...

I've also had 19 debates (as well as some training) while you've had 40. By the time I have that many, I'll almost definitely have lost more debates.
