How much time do you usually (on average) spend on each round for one of those typical 8000 character debates? By debates, I don't mean participating in debates with n00bs; I mean doing debates against someone who is average or higher in strength.

Also:

Smallest amount of time you spent on 8000 char. debates? Why?

That really depends on the debate. Some 8000 character arguments I've created in around 45 minutes. Others I had to research for about 2-3 hours, and then spend another 2-3 hours writing my argument. I've been known to start writing an argument at 9 PM and finish at 2 AM.

I probably spent the least amount of time on this debate: http://www.debate.org....

Don't let this site's demise affect you:

- Make an account on eDeb8
- Message Mikal to transfer your stats to eDeb8 (if you want them transferred)
- Contact any friends on here you'd like to stay in contact with
- Download any debates you'd like archived (go here: http://webpagetopdf.com...)
- Download as many mafia games as you can to preserve stats and history

Usually about an hour.

Never more than two though.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16
