  1. all these changes to MY cross-x.com!?!
  2. The owner is David Robinson. Ive contacted him before by email, but that was shortly after I had messed with the site so he was probably more responsive.
  3. Probably, how do you propose enforcement though?
  4. They don't respond to anything anymore. Haven't for some years
  5. These are called NIBs (necessary hut insufficient burdens) in LD and a number of articles have been written about this on LD websites I would say in policy this is a no risk move

    In the spirit of healthy free market competition, here's a free 300 page highlighted dedev file with extensions.
  7. I don't think Cross-X is quite done yet and still has lots of valuable discussion. That said, I would also like to put in a positive word for /r/policydebate (full disclosure, I am part of the modteam). I don't really use discord, but from my understanding I don't think that the discord and subreddit really trade off with each other, but rather fill different roles. That's actually why we link to the discord on the subreddit sidebar, though I'm not sure if the discord does the same vice versa. I think that Discord has some really strong potential for vdebates and casual discussion about debate and from what I've gathered from the above posts, some really interesting resources. That said, discord and other chat mechanisms are a much bigger departure from forums like CX and thus risks losing some of the benefits, things like long advice posts and more in-depth discussion. The discord is also a few hundred people smaller than the subreddit. Another advantage that both /r/policydebate and probably the Discord also have over cross-x.com is responsive modteams that takes concerns of users and reports seriously. I encourage you to check both of them out! As some examples of things that /r/policydebate has to offer, there's File givewaways In-depth topic discussion Detailed research tips from college debaters/coaches 1 2 And of course, memes
  8. Oh no, I was just informing people as to where to direct their thoughts.
  9. David Robinson is the owner of this site. And I know that it doesn't match everything this site has to offer, but the /r/policydebate subreddit (which, full disclosure, I help moderate) is relatively active and could be somewhere to migrate to if cross-x goes to shit.
  10. Meant Snarf's reply to you. I'm from the most liberal place in the nation statistically (DC) so yes I'm aware.
