Given the low activity that Juggle seems to offer to this forfeit glitch, let alone Debate.org, an eruption of frustration is exploding as members of this site strive to complain to Juggle and catch their attention. It sure was a bit annoying at first, but bit by bit, it is getting worse.

And I have been thinking... we should use certain tactics to try and avoid our debates being put to a halt. So I put together a list of tips for those who have been screwed over by this glitch multiple times. Let this serve as a guide for tips to slow down the crumbling of the site's debates.

Tip 1#: If you are planning on instigating a debate, I highly recommend using firm ELO/age restrictions. I notice that it is mainly the noobs that tend to forfeit debates. This may be a bit of an obvious tip, but believe me. Choosing higher quality members to debate you will likely not result in forfeiture.
Tip 2#: Make sure to accept the debates of those who you are confident will not forfeit your debate.
Tip 3#: If you are debating someone you aren't quite sure will not forfeit your debate, do everything you can to stop it from happening. Once it gets close to forfeiture, remind your opponent that he or she must respond quickly.
Tip #4: If you or an opponent wishes to forfeit a round, do so by typing or reminding your opponent to just type I forfeit this round.
Tip #5: Close your debates. Simply make sure nobody can simply accept your debate right away.
Tip #6: Study the activity of a member and determine whether you trust them to complete your debate or not. If it's a person who announces that they will deactivate or has deactivated a lot, you might want to either reconsider your choices for am opponent or discuss this with your opponent.

I know these tips were kind of obvious, but it should remind you of ways to prevent the glitch from happening. If there are any criticisms you would like to make, please do so. (though I could do without the clich" "Ok......") And if you have any additional tips you would like to share, feel free to express them.
You're sweet. Thank you :) <3 -ESocial

There doesn't appear to be a reason to even glance at the "Challenge Period" debates. If you need a debate which will complete, it appears necessarily to contact the person directly, and make arrangements thus.
