I originally created three seperate threads, but I am just going to consolidate them all now.

We are in the final round of the competition!

Novice Finale: http://www.debate.org...

In Round 4 of 4

Intermediate's Finale: http://www.debate.org...

Not sure what's going on here. Could potentially be a forfeit though I certainly hope not. I am giving them one more week to get this started, before I give the auto win to Orogami.

Expert's Finale: http://www.debate.org...

In Round 3 of 4.

Good luck everyone!

Hmm not quite sure. I'll have to see how long it takes this one too end. I want to do another voters competition after this though first.

I only joined about a month ago but would love the opportunity to partake in a tournament . If I may ask, what is the voters competition? I wouldn't mind looking at a few past ones if you can share some links.

A voters competition is something where members can vote on debates. Depending on the set up of the competition, members can win cool prizes by casting multiple outstanding votes. I have hosted 2 so far, I will have to link them to you later.

The novice tier is in the voting period. Experts tier is in the final round. I just barely heard from bullish. We'll see if a debate is posted in the next two days.

Would you agree that there is not much of difference in quality between the novice and intermediate tiers? I've read debates from both tiers, and they seem to have the same level of competition and professionalism, but clearly we had better debates in the Expert tier.

Yes the quality was stunning in the novice tier. I would say some of the best debates came from that tier. The tiers really don't mean more or less quality just experience.

Thanks for the offer. But that would just mean he would win either way right?

You can, though at this point it might slow the process of the final round.
