As stated in the chatbox yesterday, I'm all for keeping it at 10. There are times where my weekly schedule just doesn't allow me a proper window to sit down and get a debate done, so having the submission window extend over a couple weeks really gives me the flexibility to make some time for it and get my shit written up.
And I imagine I'm hardly the only one with a schedule that alternates between hectic and fairly open. I'd rather have extra time to write a debate then constantly withdraw from one card, hope to be added the next, withdraw from the following, etc and so on.
You know who I am, but you don't know why I'm here.

Re: Deadline for debates: 7 or 10 days?
Whatever it is, just knowing is fine and we all can abide by that. That being said, it would be nice if there was a bit of a cap on time it takes to get judging in, as well. Not by way of criticism at all (and I def. wouldn't want judging to end up being rushed), but if some are feeling like 10 days is dragging, that might have as much to do with not knowing how long judging will take. I'm not saying you guys aren't doing a great job-- you totally are-- but regardless what the length was, just having a set time to expect for the judging turn around/posting would be nice. If part of that process meant only giving us 7 days, that's alright, I guess. Though, I'm sure it'll mean some more no-shows.
I agree with above, though-- if it ain't broke don't fix it. Seems to be working fairly well overall thus far.

Spoiler for Things I've booked, written, put together...:
Yeah, I'd much rather that judges are able to take their time, digest the debates in a comfortable time-frame and give some quality feedback. I've learned so many little things (and some glaringly obvious things that I should've already knew) from feedback going back to my first debate. Although it's tough after submitting something to wait for a week or two, I'd rather the results be as "accurate" as possible with as much feedback as possible. I mean, the judges are doing this shit voluntarily, so I'm sure as hell not going to impose strict time limits on them.
