I have been following the Olympics closely, though I'm not normally a sports person, and I have been injected with a bit of the Olympic spirit. I suggest that DDO host its own spin on the Olympics, with various categories for people to compete in.

There are 10 possible events, and there will be a Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalist in each. Up to 8 people could sign up for each event. A debater could enter in a maximum of 3 events, and if enough people (4 at least) triple enter, I will award triathlete medals too. If at least 4 people double enter, I will award biathlete medals on top of that.

Here are the events:

Storytelling - In this event, competitors are expected to create a unique story. They may do one story per round, use rounds to continue where their opponent left off, or create single and separate stories in the debate. Argument points would be awarded for overall quality, and source points would not be awarded.

Talent - In this event, competitors are expected to perform a talent during their debate. Talent could include rapping, poetry, singing, etc. A talent may be constant throughout, or change per round. Stories would not be permitted in this debate. Argument points would be awarded based on the quality and technicality of each individual debaters' performance. Debaters are not required to do the same talent in a debate.

Philosophy and Morals - In this event, competitors are tasked with debating an issue of Philosophy, Ethics, Theology, or Morals. This may take the form of asking what "ought" to be, or of contrasting various elements of philosophical or moral doctrine. Sample topics might include: "Homosexual acts are immoral" or "Deontology should be preferred to Virtue Ethics" or "Just societies ought to prohibit abortions."

Government and Politics - In this event, debaters will debate issues of government, politics, and/or foreign policy. This category can be either local, regional, national, or international. The area(s) in question should be specified at the onset of the debate. Sample topics might include: "The UN should be abolished" or "New York City should have chosen Lhota over De Blasio" or "Chris Christie is inept."

Nerd and Fandom
- In this event, debaters will discuss nerdy or fandom-related issues. For example, "Doctor Who is superior to Sherlock" or "Shaak Ti contributed more to the Jedi Council than did Saesee Tiin."

Science - In this event, competitors will debate issues of science and scientific theory. For instance, "Evolutionism has a solid evidentiary foundation" or "Does the multiverse exist?" These topics should not be debates based on religious ideology, but merely on scientific fact.

Trolling - In this event, competitors should troll the living sh!t out of each other. Arguments go to the funnier debater, and there is no restriction on potential topics.

Economic Theory - In this event, participants will debate issues of economics and economic theory. For example: "Should the minimum wage be increased?" or "Socialism is a better model than Capitalism, when the goal is to increase relative prosperity."

Super-Combined - In this event, debaters will be put through a grueling round that will test their versatility and skill. All debaters will do three brief (2-3) rounds of debate in the following categories: Storytelling, Government and Politics, and Philosophy and Morals. For each round, a judge can assign a maximum of 10 points to a debater. There will be three judges per round, making a possible total of 30 points per round. The highest point-getters win. In the event of a tie, I will vote to break the tie.

I will offer events as demand dictates. If people only sign up for 2 events, I shall only offer those. But if people sign up for them all, I will offer them all. All resolutions must be approved by me, to ensure they fit the category and are fair. I will enlist judges who are qualified in the topic to judge the rounds.

Wait, for trolling, do we get like a special release from Airmax to do whatever we want so we can be free to compete to our fullest potential?
