Cheers @Headliner

Well, we have ONE match completed, which is TLK / Clique. :hb

Baxter and M-Diggedy were assigned 3 debates in total, and they've been MIA for quite some time, so I'm working on re-assigning those. Seabs also had 4 debates that I'm re-assigning.

CGS was assigned a debate but I didn't see it in the judging, although I thought he told me his was in. I'll follow up.

RetepAdam has 2 debates that he said he would judge, but that was 10 days ago. I sent him a reminder PM now and told him to PM me.

Poyser just sent out the Retep/Curry debates, so I also PM'd Anark and Joel about sending me the judging instead when they get it done.

If there is anything in Seabs' inbox from Baxter or M-Diggedy, then let me know. Otherwise, I'll start finding their replacements.

Forwarded debates and CGS judging. Not sure if you needed the debates.
Yeah the debates are big helps, as I can send them out now to be judged. Only a couple to re-assign now and we should get this going.

You wouldn't want to do any more judging would you? :side: Even MrMister style short feedback?

Depends on which debate it is.
Got rid of one..

We have:

Curry vs RetepAdam - Do Sports in general do enough to combat racism?

Flay aka your boy Yoda vs CGS - Who will have more success in WWE out of Charlotte, Bayley and Sasha Banks?

If either one works for you....

I don't suppose you want to update the archives again at some point ZOMBO to make it easier to research for AWARDS~!
I might have some time Wednesday / Thursday, depending on how busy the office is. I will try to get to it before Christmas.

Amused at being included in the debater of the year category. Don't be silly.

Also not sure about me vs Mac being included as a debate of the year candidate. Both were pretty average efforts tbh.

Baxter vs Aid was also iffy iirc. Same goes for the curry/rab/bearo Evans debates. Guess you were limited for choices in sports.

The rest looks good.

My Jurassic Park debate was better than Andre's, so his shouldn't be up for the best social debate if mine isn't :kappa :brodgers

Ok I've got some motivation to try and give this another big push again now. I'm gonna put the awards thread up today and hopefully that sparks at least some discussion. It hasn't helped that the last few card threads have been totally dead. Sounds daft but an idiot like Tater sounding off would actually be good for the section right about now. Gonna put up a thread too to try and get some suggestions for changes/improvements that we can take on board for the new year. Can't wait to see what daft ideas RR and Oxi come up with. Gonna send some PMs out too to try and see who we'd have available at the top of cards if we got going again after New Years. Even if it's just getting a couple of marquee part timers for each card it makes a big difference rather than having the below great level debaters filling up cards top to bottom. Plus it's just not worth it without a strong team of Judges so if the best Judges aren't on board even for just 2 matches a card then I'm not sure it's worth it because it'll just do more harm than good.

Idea maybe for the next card or the one after that. TDL UNPOPULAR OPINIONS. Basically users can post topics that would fall under "unpopular opinions" and then others can accept the challenge and debate against their stance on the same topic. Hoping it might attract some outside names for one off debates and maybe produce some higher standard debates. Or it flops hard when nobody posts/accepts challenges.

I think it's an interesting idea Seabsy, and kudos for going outside the box on this one. I'd scope out any topics posted and see if there's one I could accept, which may get the ball rolling for other people. I'm all for it.
