Yes two of the people I was most hoping would sign up have!

A few clarifications:

Style can be whatever the debaters are most comfortable with. After the round, the debaters are to make a one round debate with the link in it for people to watch. As for judging...I'm personally not comfortable with judge voting/ELO caps but I feel that's something best left to the debaters. I don't really see any need to limit the voting to a few select judges--but I'll let voting styles be under the debaters discretion.
