Since the next HOF inductions are scheduled to take place in January, I thought it might be nice to just give out a few shout-outs now, closer to when we would've done the HOF inductions under the old system, to some good debates on the site. It's always nice to recognize some great debates. Any debate not already in the HOF is eligible to receive a shout-out here, so, please contribute! Thanks :)

Here are my first shout-outs:

I had never even seen this debate before you posted it. I'll see if I have time to read it.

It's a video debate.

I haven't really been impressed by the quality of debates on this site. None of the debates provided in this thread so far were good in my opinion.

However, I do think that ssadi has had a good debate: http://www.debate.org...

I love the funny debates as well. But I will have to search for the ones that I really enjoyed reading.

Well, this thread is about highlighting good debates so that people can find and read them if they want, and to positively recognize people for the effort they invested in their debates.

You can shout-out some of your own debates if you'd like, as well.

I did do that. ssadi did a very good job in the debate on the cosmological argument.

As for bringing up my debates in a shout-out...that feels kind of wrong. I don't think I would ever do that.

I never said you didn't do that.

That was a general suggestion, aimed at anyone who wanted to comment here, that they could or could not take.
