Deadline for all debates is May 19th 21:00 GMT. This is a longer deadline than usual so there's really no excuse to no show. Any no shows WILL RESULT IN PERMANENT EXCLUSION FROM THE LEAGUE.
You have SEVEN DAYS to pull out of your debate. Anything later than 7 days from this post wont be accepted.
In the event that someone pulls out during the 7 day allowance we will replace them on the card with another user.
Please make sure you only submit your debate by PMing it to the intended recipient stated above. Don't post them anywhere on the forum. The debates will be forwarded onto the selected judging panel for your debate anonymously. When I post the results show you'll know what user posted each debate along with the judging panel for each debate.
One and only one user will advance from each tournament match. In the case of the Sports Division the two winners will face each other for the title on the next show. For Wrestling & Social the winners of both Bracket A debates will face each on the show 2 and likewise for the winners of Bracket B debates. The winner of each bracket will then face each other for the title on show 3.
Minimum word count = 300, Maximum word count = 800.
You are free to debate either side of an argument. Your choice.
NO BLATANT PLAGIARISM
Please don't throw a hissy fit if you're not on this card. It's impossible to get everyone onto every card. Accept it and I'll guarantee everyone who joined a debate on one of the first three shows. The same point goes for anyone unhappy at not being selected for the title tournaments. ANYONE MOANING ABOUT NOT BEING SELECTED IN THE TOURNAMENT WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE LEAGUE.
Selection process was as fair as it could be. If you weren't picked then it's probably because you either have multiple infractions picked up lately or have only joined in the last year or so. This was the fairest way possible of cutting the numbers down. A couple of tough calls were made for the final spots and those users are reserves in the event of any drop outs.
