Is this possible? My opponent (the instigator) and I are both new members in the middle of what is to be our first debate on here. I am finding it really hard to stay within the character limit that they set and requested that it be increased. They agreed but can't find an option for it. I have nothing to go on because I haven't instigated any debates yet so have no idea if there's an option to edit the conditions of the debate at all, much less where that is or whether it includes an option to change the character limit. I've looked in the FAQ and n00b sticky at the top of this page and can't find anything about it.

I was worried that might be the case. Might just have to forfeit and instigate another with them. Thanks for answering.

message this guy. If you and your adversary both consent that you want it deleted and to restart, he will remove it for you so it can be redone.

Thanks for this! That was a massive help. I've messaged my opponent to see what their feelings are on doing that.

Been off and on the site for quite some time now, until some friends talked me into staying. If you want to know anything shoot me a message.
