I would be very interested in hearing everyone's stories on how they have found this site.
I'll go first.

I found this site last year when I was online looking for help on an LD case. I found a google link that re-directed me to this site, and i found it most helpful. After using ideas this site has given me on the case in particular, i ended up winning first place in a debate tournament. After that I decided I would make an account on here to practice or debate in real life. I have become fascinated with the intellect of others i have seen on this site, and wanted to become a part of the community on here.

Your turn :)

I signed up ONE Year ago, at that time, there were only 50 members and was no access to contact any of them!

I just logged on back today and found out the site has been well developed! I like it so far!

I was arguing with a friend when, in frustration, she said I'd have to find someone else to debate with. A quick google search later and here I am.

Same story for me. I don't ever click on Ads, but a facebook Ad intrigued me, and I found myself here almost 2 years ago (will be 2 years right before my birthday in February) : )

I actually found this site from another site. It was a leftist discussion forum I'm a member of and there was somebody asking for arguments to use against Libertarians on this site. They provided a link and I followed it and here I am.

Typed in 'debate' on google after I found an intellectual hole in my life. The hole has been filled.

Also, inb4 that's what she said.

Typed the domain name "Debate.com" when the site was very, very new. Like, all of the members of the site fit into one or two "pages."

Haha, it wasn't me looking for them, but sure. I probably have a few things to pull out of my sleeve if I'm ever stuck having an ideological debate with a Libertarian.

I did a random Google search for "Iff yu dont beleeve inn god, yu wil gow to hel", and the only hit on the net was a Godsands debate.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

"Satan goes to church, did you know that?" - Godsands

"And Genisis 1 does match modern science... you just have to try really hard." - GR33K FR33K5
