How about we make a thread for debates that need someone to accept?
I'll start:
(http://www.debate.org...)
(Should college athletes be paid? I am pro)
(http://www.debate.org...)
(Should we legalize same-sex couples adopting? I am also pro)

I came up with this idea because of the voting thread, and thought that I could kill two birds with one stone by finding opponents for my debate, and starting something useful for others.
Cheers!

I don't think a whole new thread is required, because there is a simpler solution in the form of this link: http://www.debate.org...
Here you will find all debates that need opponents.

Welcome to the site & have fun. You should hopefully get an opponent sooner or later. When the debate is finished, it is indeed best to use the forum thread, because there is no such analogous link for debates in need of votes.

I think there actually is:
http://www.debate.org...
"Bonjour" -Feu

Diqiu: "Asian men are generally perceived as more feminine..."
Me: "Are you feminine?"
Diqiu: "Hey, no!"

"Do really really really good pens turn you on?" -Hayd

"bsh1's profile pic is what the snapchat filter would look like on steroids"- VOT

"let's keep it simple and traditional :D" -Biodome

I think there actually is:
http://www.debate.org...

That shows all of the debates that are in the voting period, of which there currently are about 9,000. It doesn't really show you which debates have already been voted on, and which are still unvoted.

So in order to bring attention to unvoted debates, the forum is really the only useful tool. Especially if the voting period is about to end, on request, a couple of judges can decide the outcome of the debate which would otherwise have remained tied, lost in the thousands of other debates.
