Hi DDO!
I'm ArcTimes. I'm fairly new to the website (just a couple of weeks) and what impressed the most from the beginning was the amount of people creating debates, giving their opinions and the huge amount of discussion.

Just recently I made a post asking about team styled debates, because I was curious if it was possible considering the popularity of the website. I was told that there were some problems, and to make the effort to implement it, they had to be sure people is going to use it. So they recommended me to use a "workaround".

This workaround works like this:
The 4 debaters join 2 teams 2 using 2 accounts created by admins and managed by captains.
An example of a debate using these accounts is:
http://www.debate.org...

The idea is that if they see interest, they are going to take that into account and maybe even consider it a priority.
I'm inviting everyone to a scientific debate about... science?

Possible topics:
Abortion.
Assisted suicide.
Drugs.
Stem cell research.

Possible resolutions:
is X science?

If you like one of the topics, resolution, or have suggestions, and would like to participate, comment with it with your side.
If you think this is not a good idea, comment it, discussion is always good.
If were thinking about creating a 1v1 scientific debate, stop for a moment and take this into consideration. At the end, this can be fun.

FAQ

1. Why are you doing this?

I would like 2v2 debates implemented in DDO.

2. Why only scientific debates?

I'm thinking on doing debates on different categories. I just wanted to start with science :D Probably Religion next.

3. I saw some of your debates...You are really bad at debating. Why would I want to debate with you?

Well.. :(. I actually don't need to debate lol. My objective is to try to make 2v2 debates a little more popular. So its implementation is a possibility in the future.
I still want to debate tho.

5. If this is the first time you are asking this, then why do you have a FAQ? No one asked anything to you. Are you making this FAQ up?

Yes.

6. Why isn't there a number 4?


plz staph

7. If I want to debate something from another topic, what should I do?

If we can't agree something here, you can always start your 2v2 debates sending a PM about it to airmax1227 or bladerunner060 so you get the accounts or even create yours for the debates. Just don't do it on your own.

I'd be interested in a science debate possibly, especially if it's concerning Evolution. Obviously I'd be on the Con side.

Fair enough. If someone likes the idea of debating evolution, comment it and their side.

How about a team debate. Me and you debate flat Earth against somebody else. I've been on YouTube a lot lately. I think I can put together some good arguments.

Wait, do you want to debate for a flat Earth? Like an "Earth is plane" resolution?

Ok. So you and Garret vs other 2? I'm fine debating against flat earth.

I still would like the evolution debate. It depends. We need another 1 for the flat earth, and 2 more for the evolution one so we can ask for the accounts and start the debate(s).
