Who will be facilitator?
Who selects the topic?
I think you may want to start with getting volunteers to be arbiters, facilitators, debaters etc.... perhaps a new thread calling for volunteers?
Selecting a topic may be the best way to solicit volunteers. Not everyone wants to debate everything.
Did the debate thread happen? Have I missed it or is it still in the planning stage.
what of a 1v1 debate section on a topic.
A thread yes, section no.
Difficult to implement.
First need two people to square off that will put the time into research and presentation.
Do the factual arguments of each side have to be sourced, and if so, do the sources have to be readily available for review by the audience, either via links to on-line sourcing or, at least, citations to published works that are readily available in the Anglosphere?
Like a regular debate, the debate parties are responsible for their evidence. They have to convince an audience of their case.
Okay, fair enough.
and I vote for let the games begin.
Like tangos, it takes two.
JGood, you must keep pretty busy these days...

thank you Waterloo it was me not the computer.
I don't know how this could be included, but I think what is missing from our political debates is someone who points out logical fallacies. As a debate judge would.
I just wonder if there might be a system to flag or deduct points for stuff that "sounds good, but means nothing."
Just a thought.
So far we have had exactly one debate. It was a good idea, but members are not willing to put the time and effort into it.
Separate names with a comma.
