I'm in as a mentor, but I won't chase the beginners down. They need to actively engage with me. I've been having a problem with that.

Yes - I will be going over beginner - mentor interaction in each of the pm's that I make. I strongly agree with that mentality.

Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

Could I please know when this tournament is set to start, from where topics should be chosen, and standard rules for the debates? I see this knowledge as integral in deciding if I should partake.

Rules are your own, basic rules are no forfeits and no trolling. Topics are of your choice (you and your opponent must decide on one).

Thank you for your help. I was uncertain if there existed any notable constraints on the topics one can debate. There are none here?

As well, would you be able to tell me when the tournament will begin, or a range?

No, beginners tournaments don't have topic constraints. Obviously no troll debates, rap battles, and the like.

I don't know. Ask debatability ...

Are the mentors established, debatability?

I notice you have been carefully keeping track of participants, but see no mention of mentors. I am curious as to why this is.
