My debate with Stefan is to do with Marijuana Legalization. Unfortunately, I am phoneposting so I cannot provide the link.

I can tell that our debate is going to be close. The_Commander is a great debater and I highly recommend looking at our debate once it's over because it is already tense.

What do you mean by start? Like post the sign-ups on time (on the first day of the month) or starting Round 1 on time.

The former would cause the latter, so both.

Sign-ups should be finished before the first day of the month.

I feel this was sarcastic, so I'm replying to it with this:

I had the August tournament filled and matched before the month began, and if I recall correctly all debates had started by the first.

I know they were and you did such a great job. DDO needs no one but the best to get these new guys appropriated into the swing of things here on DDO.
