In the past, if you accepted a debate but forfeited Round 1, the debate would simply expire and not move back to the instigator for Round 2. Does anyone know if this is still the case? I accidentally clicked to accept a debate that I don't want to do, but if it will show as a R1 forfeit I'll just post a round. Thanks in advance for the help.

I believe so. Happened in a debate for the Beginner's Tourney a few months back.

It still cancels the debate.

If you forfeit the first round then the debate will just cancel. Don't worry, the round won't actually forfeit.

You misunderstand the OP. She isn't planning on forfeiting the debate. She plans on forfeiting R1 which automatically cancels the debate. Therefore, the debate will never enter the voting period.

It pretty much does but due to the fact that forfeiting R1 cancels the debate, it never enters the voting period so that link isn't applicable in this scenario.

I think it's still the case.

You know... it is mildly tempting to use this on junk debates I'm reporting to get deleted, to remove them from sight.

Yes this is still the case. You can safely forfeit r1.

It'll simply expire.
