There are a number of details that still need to be worked out, but the best way to move forward and optimize this idea is to start the pilot season.

A detailed look at the concept and rules of the Debate Champions League can be viewed here:

http://www.debate.org...

The basics of the DCL are as follows:

The DCL is a team-based debating league that pits one team of debaters against another through a schedule determined after signups and team creation.

The top teams (the number of which is determined following signups and team creation) continue into the playoffs. The final two teams will match up to compete in the DCL championship to debate for a chance to be crowned the Debate.org Debate Champions League Champion (with this achievement being immortalized in a special stickied thread created to honor the winners).

So those are the basics. There are going to be a fair number of details to familiarize yourself with, and those can be viewed in the above thread.

Any clarification required, should be requested in the above thread, and not in this sign-up thread.


This initial season will allow us to determine how to best approach certain areas of this concept, and while I believe things have mostly been worked out, I look forward to working with members to optimize this concept in the best way possible. If you have any suggestions, please post them in the above thread.

I look forward to seeing this concept become hugely successful, with as many members and teams vying for a chance to be the champion every season. I hope that this league becomes a major feature of the site, and for that to happen I hope for as much participation as possible. So if you have any interest, feel encouraged to sign-up. I realize time restrictions are often a problem, but this is a team based concept for a reason, and if you have any concerns, feel free to post them in the above thread, or to contact me personally via PM.

In an effort to make sure this idea has the best chances to be successful, I will act as commissioner of the DCL for at least this first season.

Donald.Keller will act as co-commissioner, so he may be contacted as well with any concerns or questions that you may have.

I look forward to an exciting and productive first season - and many more.

Just out of curiosity, can there be more than 10 people in this league?

Yes. Time restrictions prevented me from writing up an infinite number of spots (so I just wrote 10) so when ten have signed up, members just can add more spots. This sign up is for as many people are interested in signing up - which will hopefully be many more than just 10.

I'm considering. This will depend on my availability outlook by the end of the month.

Depending on who else signs up, I might consider.
