So how far have people gone on our Pokemon challenge?

I'm still on my first try with Defro on homosexual marriage. I think we should compose some sort of list to keep track of who's where.

The only people I've noticed who are actually doing this right now are Fanath and 9spaceking...

I'm planning on starting soon, as well, once the school year finishes up.

I think I also heard Wylted say something about trying it out...

I'm pretty sure that CJKAllStar, Blade-of-Truth, and Jifpop09 will also be trying this out, just because they all seem pretty ambitious and have high levels of potential.

I was asking Actionsspeak if there were any topics we might disagree on a few days ago. Just finished my last assignment today, so starting tomorrow I'll continue my discussion with him. I also currently have 3 debates I'll need to finish up before beginning the challenge. This summer though, I definitely plan on attempting the challenge when I'm not travelling.

Last I checked he's losing to actions, and he's definitely losing to me. He was hasty in instigating a debate against me thinking he would be actions, and instead he just gave me free ELO.

So, to answer the OP, here is the current list of users who have openly expressed interest in starting, or have already started:
9spaceking
Fanath
Romanii
Wylted
Blade-of-Truth

And I suspect that Pitbull15 and CJKAllStar will be joining the list soon, as well.

I think the gym leaders should be challah gable in parrallel, instead of linear fashion. As we have a bottleneck at action speak/jonbonbon and the first gym of people who want to participate, and hence long queues.

Whereas the other gym leaders get no challenges...

I know. I'm sitting here at like the third to last gym leader, twiddling my thumbs and just chillin' out.

Not that I mind.

Generally, I don't view a forfeited round as an automatic loss. It reduces the amount of space that someone has to respond to their opponent, and it usually guarantees a conduct point for the other side, but I've seen more than a few debates where victory was far from assured by a forfeit. It certainly didn't help Actionsspeak, and the debate was still pretty close, but the arguments were there even without that round.

Btw, I'll be waiting for whomever manages to make it past the first 2 badges. Looking forward to defending my political badge.

I can't do the tournament until after the first few days of June. But after then, I probably will do it.

I think Mikal made a forum. You basically try and beat either Defro or Actionspeak on the road, then go to all the gyms, then Elite Four.

13 debates in all.

But guys, we should have a champion that you have to beat. Or a rival etc.

Probably. What kind of smoking ban? Just an across the board "no one may smoke tobacco" ban, or are we talking about a subset of tobacco products that would be banned? Is it to be banned in all uses anywhere, or just in public places?
