Intro

I am Famous, and I will be hosting this unofficial tournament (as I am next on the tournament mod signups list). I hope that this will be a learning experience for the members that sign up.

Rules

To sign up you must have ...

1 - Completed 5 non forfeited / conceded debates.

OR

2 - Completed a tournament on the site before (beginner, regular, unofficial, etc.)

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 past LD topics: http://www.speechanddebate.org...

Sign ups

I'm looking for 8 sign ups however this number of flexible and may be lowered or increased depending on the amount of people interested. But, I would rather someone not sign up than have 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 tentatively submit my interest. This is tentative based on clarification of the nature of the debates and their judging. Nothing has yet been said about expectations or content.
Math is just another language, however one without analogy.

Elo restrictions are questionable. There are many users with low elo that are better debaters than other debaters with higher elo.

Then make a big list of 50, and choose 10 of them. That always works.

The debate topic will be decided between you and your opponent. As for the nature of the judging, that is also up to you.

I doubt that 50 people would be interested.

Remember to post here confirming that you'll sign up (if you decide to) because otherwise I won't add you to the list due to the lack of confirmation.
