I just joined and I accepted two debate challenges. Neither opponent posted arguments for the second round, what happens now? I am going to post my arguments anyway but I can't seem to find anywhere on the forum what happens where someone forfeits. Can someone tell me?

You can post arguments if you want, either way if they forfeit you'll get the win automatically.

If you want a debate with someone who won't forfeit, I'll debate you

You should post your arguments anyway because if your opponent forfeits one round, but doesn't forfeit any subsequent round, some of the voters will penalize your opponent in conduct but not give you an automatic win unless it was the last round they forfeited.

There are 3 and 4 rounds left in the debates that were forfeited. After I post my arguments, if they forfeit again, will the debate automatically end? Or will I have to keep posting something and wait for the full time to expire on each of their argument phases before they end?

Just post "extend all arguments" in each subsequent round.

Also when they enter the voting period, be sure to post them at http://www.debate.org...

The debate doesn't automatically end. I would continue to post something in each of your rounds because if you both forfeit, nobody will vote, or it'll be a tie. You don't have to keep arguing, though. Just say, "Carry my arguments forward," or something like that.
