Having a new board would be useful for this actually, Ill ask anmar.

He just deleted the 8 topics I started for each Round 1 matcup, so I'm not sure how receptive he's going to be to the idea.

Jeremy I will be voting based on someone who identifies the most persuasive facts and points whether I agree with those facts and points or not.

I'm down to judge but we should establish that and a few other things before we rush into this.

Judges should have some sort of guideline to follow because some of the topics may bias the judges in one way or another.

That's why 7+ judges will equal out. I'm personally gonna be looking for who can argue things I disagree with effectively

Nopiforyou just make a thread with the topic as your title

Making a thread strictly for the votes, and a thread for all the arguments would be a good place to start. Having them all sent to 1 person to post would also be good for the game. If we don't have someone to do that I could do it and you guys can replace me with another debater. Organization is key for this to work. Rushing these things isn't going to help.

What other Admins are around that can lock and unlock threads when arguments are posted?

I would like to thank all of you for your personal attention and devotion to the goings on in my life.  I see it as a great sign of respect and awe of the effects I've had on each of you.  Rest assured, I will continue to post in a way that keeps me at the center of your thoughts and minds every time you log into hoopshype.

It really should be created as an entire board, with a thread for each matchup. That way, voters won't need to sift through one thread with 120 posts to find the 12 that deal with the matchup they're voting on. Just create it as a sub-board of Gen NBA or Off-Topic, that makes the most sense.
