So, I'm wanting to do a 2 round debate where opponents pick a topic and create a video to represent their case. Whoever has the most persuasive arguments & points win. Is anybody interested?

No.

Did I narrow it down?

Basically this is about who can present a stronger case.

I don't think anyone's going to do a "video" argument. Unless it's like a singing debate or something.

The point is that you're not going to have any luck with this. Sorry.

Upload your video, and link it onto the debate.

Well, yeah, but it's an actual debate done via video and audio, not with any text. That's what I meant.

I'd be up for a video debate, but I'd rather it be more than one round. If you'd like, we could set it up as you've suggested and add a round of rebuttal and a conclusion round to it. Just a thought, though you might be wedded to your format.

If it's just two people, independently defending a point of view, and there's no rebuttal or interaction, is it really a debate?

I would love to video debate as long as we could go longer than 1 round, I need to make sure I don't get rusty during the summer, though I'm not sure if you would be uncomfortable live debating someone who has a lot of live debate experience...let me know.

Abortion, Death Penalty, Legalization of Marijuana. I can argue either side on those 3. Whatever you want to do. I'm flexible with whatever topic.
