Hey guys!

I have plenty of free time at school so if you need someone to vote on your debate just send me a DM.

I will do my best to vote on every debate but if the subject matter goes over my head I most likely respond with a "Pass" in the comments.
Use logic. Get win. Simple as that.

By renewing the debate, and instigating it again, you effectively agree to discard this debate.

We did that because of the ff glitch. I was reluctant but I was doing it for 4000 elo and I didn't want my elo to go too high above 4000 otherwise the debate timing would be odd. Furthermore, I had a lot of time at that point but knew that I'd have a lot of work later on during the next few months so setting up the debate again was the most convenient option for me.

...so then why are we voting on the old debate again?

Because it is unfair that whiteflame got an extra 2 weeks whilst we got the debate reset to make his case. He failed to post on time and to leave this debate tied is to permit forfeiture on this site. He still made a violation of the rules of the debate.

Bala, we discussed this. First, you promised by message to me personally and at least once in the comments that the debate would be either reset or deleted. After repeated posts to your profile, and repeated promises by you to get it deleted, you have still failed to get it deleted. Second, in the comments, you said that you would allow the round to be posted in the comments and the debate to continue. This new fixation with the rules was never remarked over the course of any of our conversations. Third, I agreed to rehash the debate as we did under the stipulation that this debate either receive no votes or be deleted. So while you're right that you never agreed to have no voting on this debate, you agreed to far larger interventions, and if you get someone to vote on this debate as you're trying to do, I'll inform Airmax of these conversations and get the debate removed, as we agreed.

For the record, you got those same extra 2 weeks, because the entire argument you were responding to was posted in the comments. And, also for the record, the only reason it took an extra 2 weeks was because you wanted to delay for personal reasons. I was ready to restart the debate the day it happened, and every day thereafter. As I recall, I had to remind you about the whole thing several times in the days after you'd stated it would be done.

"I'll get it removed after the voting period of our current one" =/= "My opponent foreited (which is against the rules, and then said that this debate should not be voted on and left as a tie when I never agreed to this."

Let it go. You, by assuring you would delete the debate, agreed that there would be no votes.

It isn't. You're quite right. But considering that Bala decided to publicly solicit votes, I felt the need to explain this publicly. Any further communication by me aimed at Balacafa will happen elsewhere.

No problem. And thanks for opening yourself up to voting on so many debates. I know people appreciate the effort.

It seemed a shame to me that so many good debates were going without votes so I figured I would take things into my own hands.
