== Introduction ==

The DDO Census Debate is a grand debate with a grand prize.

Once, halfway through every other month, a DDO Census Debate is held. The topic is the most popular, or controversial, topic of the month. Everyone who wants to partake can sign up, and discuss who will represent them in the debate.

Both parties may rework the Resolution to fit. For this reason the resolution given is only a guideline for the general topic.

Members will be chosen to represent by February 15th (the start of the debate).

== This Month's Topic ==

The USFG Should Ban Firearms.

== The Debate ==

The Debate will be 4-5 rounds long, and will use Judge voting. Debaters may pick a Source/Arguments only voting system or a Choose Winner voting system. The grand prize is a $25 gift card for Walmart or Amazon (winner's pick).

Rules:
- No wars (source wars or definition wars, etc...)
- No kritiking.
- Sources may be in external links.
- Proper formatting must be used (and consistent).

All Pro and Con users may vote on who will represent their side. Comment here if you are willing to debate or vote on a debater. The representative chosen may pick one person to be their adviser.

I'm very interested in representing either side. I'm TheProphett, if you are doubting my experience. I would love to take this debate.

You have to get rid of the external sources thing. The character limit also helps against source spamming and serves as part of the challenge of keeping your arguments under the character limit.

Both debaters can decide on banning external links if they want. I did it in the first Census.

DK said that you're a potential opponent and you're either going up against me or Fourtrouble (I think).

Apparently FT wants in (as DK just revealed) but it's unclear whether he wants in as Pro or as Con. I think that he wants to be Pro so he could be a potential opponent.

He said he's Pro. But when is this again?

Ask DK, he said the 15th February but that's past.

Since FT expressed interest, I support him to represent Pro.

He's already done a census debate. Why should he be allowed to do another? Let somebody new get a chance.

There really is no rules concerning this. However, I do prefer no consecutive opponents. This isn't consecutive though.

Eitherway, unless ft starts advertising himself, it seems you will get the debate.
