This is my first debate. I hadn't done one outside of Debate.org at the time so it is literally my first experience at debating. What's yours?

I did TOO much holding and used too many italics.

I was irked at him winning because he broke a sh*t load of rules regarding rebutting in the wrong round and he brought up new arguments which I could have pretty decently refuted in the final round so I couln't respond to them. I honestly think if I debated him on the topic now I could have probably won.

I'm still proud of myself. I've ever debated outside of debate.org so this was my first debate experience EVER and I was against a debate veteran. (He was kind of an a**hole to me, but whatevs).

It'd probably be nice to redo that debate, but with someone more... cordial. I definitely would do MUCH better on that topic had I debated it nowadays.

This was my first debate on DDO and I haven't debated off of this site and I do not believe I am really good at debating and I didn't think that this debate would actually get any votes.
How come when I hit review it sometimes adds my post without me clicking add post?
Does this happen to other people?

My first formal debate was on a message board a long time ago. Thankfully I saved it before it was deleted, so I was able to post it on my blog:

Besides that one, I only had one other formal debate outside of DDO, but I don't have that one posted anywhere.

Is it noob sniping if you didn't know the person was a noob when you accepted the challenge? 'Cause I've debated a lot of noobs, but didn't check their profiles before accepting.

Here it is. I just picked the first 2 random debates I saw. The first 2 I randomly saw was Tophatdoc and whiteflame. I lost both of them. After that I became a little more selective of the topics I debate.

I had never debated before that time. I've improved since then. I think I was extremely unlucky to get those 2 guys right off the back.

Never got started, sadly. Seemed like such an interesting point of discussion. The debate with Wylted followed on that one as the first debate I created on this website. It played to my strengths, though I tried to make it pretty even given the vaccine I chose.

Honestly, that debate is one of the main reasons I decided to stay. Well, that one and the RNA world theory debate I had a little while later.

Still probably the longest debate I've done - I haven't debated recently as I just got bored of the conveyobelt of forfeits.

Cheers to Blade for being the only one to vote on it, though.

My very first 'debate'. Unfortunately it was a forfeit where nobody voted.

My second debate (and first where there were no FFs), but was also an unvoted draw.
