This is really inappropriate. You can ask for people to vote on your debate, you can't ask people to vote for you, especially in such a public forum. This post is reason enough for me to afford your boyfriend a conduct point.

Asking me to vote for you will make me vote for the other person.
Don't let this site's demise affect you:

- Make an account on eDeb8
- Message Mikal to transfer your stats to eDeb8 (if you want them transferred)
- Contact any friends on here you'd like to stay in contact with
- Download any debates you'd like archived (go here: http://webpagetopdf.com...)
- Download as many mafia games as you can to preserve stats and history

Okay sorry if I'm being inappropriate but I'm having fun. I'm new here idk what I'm supposed to do. You guys could say politely this isn't how it's done not be gigantic freaking jerks. Thanks.

If I came off as a jerk, I apologize for any perceived rudeness, but I think you should be fully aware of how thoroughly this is frowned upon. I don't doubt that you were just having fun, but voting on debates is something we take quite seriously. If making that apparent makes me a jerk, then I accept that.

It did come off as harsh. I'm sorry for being mean. I really am new here and he never told me any of this and the whole acceptance thing and it's really confusing. I'm sorry I didn't mean to do anything wrong. I saw him doing it and thought it's just what people do haha. Thank you for letting me know.
