Welcome one and all to the next weekly update. Things have not changed that much from the last one, but we are making progress. The mentor tournament has kicked off and in it's first round. In addition to that the mentor program with the new members read me thread is almost complete, and will be posted shortly. Some of the upcoming things to look forward to will be the launch of a new tournament, and or the fantasy draft. Updating the post unvoted debates sticky, and then some other nifty things that will be reveled at a later date.

In addition to this i'm sad to announce (as you can tell by his profile), that i'ma has been temp banned for a week because of repetitive conduct violations. I feel this is fair and understand the ban entirely, especially with my recent push for conduct being applied in the religion forums. In his absence bluesteel will be serving as my VP.

With that being said I want to issue an apology to the people I steamed off in the religion forum. I was not on some witch hunt to ban the entire forum, I wanted conduct to be applied equally across the site. If that came off as anything other than that, you have my apologies.

Now on to the rest

_______________________________________________________________________

Debates of the week

Shameless promotion, but this debate finally happened. People have been wanting to see this forever and after a long discussion about a topic we decided to give it a go.

Bluesteel vs Myself - Assault Weapons Ban - http://www.debate.org...

FT vs Ajab - The universe is finte - http://www.debate.org...

Emil vs Wylted - The Israeli Military intentionally attacked the USS Liberty - http://www.debate.org...

This next one is controversial and a contender is yet to be chosen. Bluesteel, raisor, and myself have all applied and talking with Zaro, i'm fully confident that it will be one of us 3 that gets it.

Zaro vs TBD - Mafia is a waste of time - http://www.debate.org...

Snp1 vs User - Pre Christian Belief in Jesus - http://www.debate.org...

16k vs Roy (finally finished) Global warming - http://www.debate.org...

Random bit of info

The religion forum now has a topic of the week to promote discussion on certain ideas and thoughts. Anyone can shoot max a message and throw him ideas out for the topic, the final call will be his though.

Everyone should try and join in

http://www.debate.org...

___________________________________________________________________

We have an influx of new members now in the main forums, and I'm happy to see that. This election did have some positive impacts on the site. If anyone needs to know the site basic I would refer you to the following two posts

Max and I are still in the process of editing this but it gives a great deal of info about the site - http://www.debate.org...

In addition to the read me you can always use ragnars new user guide , this is a great guide to get you use to site basics. - https://docs.google.com...

___________________________________________________________________

Still no word from juggle yet about site updates, but we are doing what we can on our end to keep stuff coming. Keep your heads up , faith up, and keep a smile on your face. Let's make the site go in the best direction possible, and move past all the craziness as of late

__________________________________________________________________

I leave you with this

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

That would be my guess, but it wasn't just a flame war. It was sexual harassment. Zarroette created a thread saying Mafia is a waste of time. Not sure why Bench would get involved, he doesn't play mafia, but whatever. Not sure who started it, but a number of satire threads were created saying "_________ is a waste of time." I know that Ima participated, but again, not sure who started it. That is all fine and dandy (morally questionable, but there needs to be some give for discourse). She then created a thread calling out all those that satirized her and offered a debate challenge. Ima came in and just started making sexual comments about Zarroette (stuff like, "I make her wear a bag over her head when I F*** her and wear 70 condoms" paraphrased).

I would presume that was what lead to this, though I am no longer on the inside to know.

Not to imply anything, but the president has little to no say on who does or does not get banned. Ima getting banned does not require Mikal's support. That is not to imply that favoritism occurs, only to say this is not evidence that it does not.

Just to inform you- Mikal wasn't the one who banned him. It was Max. Mikal has no banning powers whatsoever.
Max was the one who dealt with the situation. Mikal replaced Ima temporarily.

As a member, and active at that, of the site- he's your VP as well.

Why is he banned?

I think because he got in a flame-war with Zarroette.

That would be my guess, but it wasn't just a flame war. It was sexual harassment. Zarroette created a thread saying Mafia is a waste of time. Not sure why Bench would get involved, he doesn't play mafia, but whatever. Not sure who started it, but a number of satire threads were created saying "_________ is a waste of time." I know that Ima participated, but again, not sure who started it. That is all fine and dandy (morally questionable, but there needs to be some give for discourse). She then created a thread calling out all those that satirized her and offered a debate challenge. Ima came in and just started making sexual comments about Zarroette (stuff like, "I make her wear a bag over her head when I F*** her and wear 70 condoms" paraphrased).

I would presume that was what lead to this, though I am no longer on the inside to know.

Yeah, that would be inappropriate. I'm glad Mikal and Airmax took action.

I agree. I'm glad they took the appropriate course of action. Justice was served today.

It shows Mikal does not have favoritism.

It also shows that this site has a strict rule against sexual harassment, which is a good thing.

Exactly.

Max was the one who dealt with the situation. Mikal replaced Ima temporarily.

Really? With whom? Also, where was this stated, I missed it.

Not to imply anything, but the president has little to no say on who does or does not get banned. Ima getting banned does not require Mikal's support. That is not to imply that favoritism occurs, only to say this is not evidence that it does not.

All right. I was just referring to the complaints of unequal treatment.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I don't understand what you mean...
How does Max banning Bench have anything to do with Mikal treating people equally, not to say that he isn't- but I don't understand where the correlation is... ?
