Intro
Let's get this tournament started! I am Hayd, and I will be hosting the DDO December Beginner"s Tournament. This is a learning experience for new members, to help them learn the kinks of the site as well as receive advice on debating from experts to increase their skill and confidence.

Rules
To keep this tournament for beginners only, and to make it fair:

To sign up you must be under 3,000 Elo

Max of 15 completed debates.

I reserve the right to have final say on qualification.

The tournament will be single elimination, meaning if you lose once you are eliminated, and single stage, meaning that there will only be one bracket. Pairings will be randomized. Contestants will have 4 days to mutually decide on a topic and start their debate, if the contestants fail to agree on a topic one will be provided to them from idebate (http://idebate.org...). If an odd number of contestants sign up, bye-rounds will be provisioned randomly. If someone drops out, their opponent will receive a by-round.

Sign ups
Looking to get as many participants as possible. But, I would rather someone not sign up than half to drop out of the tournament, or forfeit rounds in their debate. So if you don"t think you will have time over the next month or two, please abstain from signing up. I encourage anyone within the boundaries to sign up for this tournament to receive expert debate advice, meet new and interesting people, learn about DDO, and of course, have fun.

You guys can stop the circlejerk started around the election. It stopped being funny faster than Mirza's anti-American rants. -Jonbonbon

It's like when the kid who makes an ugly sand castle on the beach goes and tries to kick down someone else's sand castle because he couldn't make one as good as that. -YYW

Can you amend the rules to let me personally randomly appoint topics from my database of ideals?

No sorry, adding any more people would make the pairings not equal and would mess up the whole bracket.
