Last Week's Results

Winner: Harder [http://www.debate.org...]

Honorable Mention 1: Proph [http://www.debate.org...]
Honorable Mention 2: Solon [http://www.debate.org...]

This Week's Contest

The Contest

As part of our ongoing efforts to revive the forums, I will be hosting an "OP of the Week" contest for the next 4 weeks. Posts made as part of the biweekly topics, as part of the various series on the site that I am promoting, or as part of my content-generating initiative are no eligible for this context. That being said, users contributing to these other initiatives can still enter OPs for the contest as long as those OPs are for one of the abovementioned things. We will be enforcing these rules more strictly moving forward.

To be entered, simply meet just ONE of the following 3 bullets:

- Enter yourself by posting your OP's link here or privately PMing me
- Have your OP nominated in this thread by 3 other members
- Have your OP reach 100 or more non-spam posts

OPs must have been made on Oct. 3rd or by the afternoon of Oct. 10th for them to be eligible. Zaradi and I will sift through the entries. We may enlist guest judges if need be. We will then select three winners and announce them on Mondays. We will analyze not just the quality of the OP, but its originality, and the quality of the ensuing discussion.

The Prizes

We will select up to 3 OPs (2 honorable mentions and a winner) and at least 1 OP. Any honorable mentions will receive a positive shout-out thread recognizing their OP. The winner will receive a prize of a free vote.

By "free vote," I mean that I will personally guarantee that I will vote on a debate of your choice, so long as I am given 72 hours notice. I cannot, however, guarantee that I will vote for you or for who you'd like to win. I must vote impartially, but you will at least receive one vote.

Alternatively, if you would rather not receive a vote, I am willing to discuss other prizes with selected winners as long as I judge whatever prize we agree on to be roughly equal to a vote.

TL;DR

Post good OPs, win free votes, and help revive the forums. To enter, post below, PM me, or start a lively discussion. Good luck!

I think this week I will criticize South Africa, write about the GOP's failure to recognize global warming, or the danger the National Front party in France poses.

Make sure that it invites discussion as well. There needs to be something to discuss.

It refers either to the Original Poster (the person who created a thread) or the Original Post (meaning the first post of a thread). In this case, I refer to the latter.
