I mean, how many debates can actually be done properly with 1000 character?

I accepted a debate without looking at much of the formatting (because the lowest count I have ever seen for a gay marriage debate has been 5000 characters), but nope, 1000. Had to delete my sources in order for me to post a good round.

What I think the 1k debates should be is... different debates. One-on-one, but in a back and forth with many rounds. I wouldn't mind a model of a debate structure like that. Quick time limits, etc... Debated you can start and know it will be complete in 24 hours.

But, no. You can not have a proper structured debate in 1k characters. I was going to take a "God exists" debate and someone sniped it from me. Then I saw it was 1k and three rounds. So, Pro had to prove the existence of god in one round consisting of ~ one paragraph. That would really be something.

Debates about religion and politics should have at least 5000 characters. I accidentally accepted a 1000 character debate about gay marriage.
