  1. Drugs. He did lots of drugs. In regards to fascism, here's an excerpt from his wikipedia page.
  2. Looking for articles, books, journals, etc. on debate history, specifically things like cultural norms in debate. Ex: the Salt article that has a bunch of theory cards saying certain things aren't legitimate, the McKinney card (I think?) that says the politics DA is harmful to the activity, etc. Just looking for stuff to compare debate "back then" to how it is now.
  3. Yes, however, the level of activity from other participants seems to be declining. As I said above, this has stretched several months - I'm sure most want to be done already.
  4. Hello all, The ODT has finally concluded (phew, took long enough!). I will begin assigning speaker awards soon, and getting coupons worked out with Exodus in the next few coming days. If you think you are eligible for an award, be sure to keep an eye on your cross-x PMs. On another note, I would like to announce that I will not be hosting the ODT next year, however, would like to see it continue on. Some suggestions/changes/comments about how this year's was ran: - It took way too long. People lost interest. It spanned across multiple nationals tournaments, into debate camps, and even into preseason work. With that in mind, maybe don't do a double-bracket tournament next time. - Speaker awards are hard to tab in bracket format (I'll still give out the awards, however). - Many participants went inactive between registration and the actual start of the tournament. This is likely due to the gap between the two dates. - The "no public RFDs" thing was Kansas-inspired, and wasn't the best system to be honest. In case someone feels like hosting another ODT, feel free to leave comments on this year's ODT below. I will acknowledge I could have ran the tournament better, and perhaps my faults will be corrected by someone else in a future year. In closing, thanks to those who stuck through it all! It's been fun!
  5. If I could get an RFD - from literally anyone - I could start handing out awards.
  6. Still need RFDs. Accepting other judges to step in and provide, given the current ones have not done so in a timely manner.
  7. ngl I think I liked the old format better oops
  8. I think they meant it was a long time ago, after they realized there was no pay-out
  9. It looks like new files can't be uploaded, so good luck finding a copy of any sort of agreement. I'm not an Evazon author, but I'd be interested in following the case and helping out in any way I can.
  10. Not sure, but I can tell you the owner is user David, who hasn't been active for some time.
  11. Given the tournament is a double-elim bracket, some of you may be eliminated. Below is the list of remaining competitors. Furthermore, given that the suspense of the first two rounds is out of the way, RFDs are now allowed to be public Please review the rules before starting a thread. Either debater may start the thread. If no thread is started, the round is a double loss. If no 1AC is posted within 24 hours, the aff loses, assuming the neg started the thread. Judges, please PM me the decision and speaker points ASAP. Tournament timeframe rules are flexible; please contact the inactive debater before awarding a loss. If anyone would not like to judge or compete, please PM me ASAP so you can be removed from the pool. If there are any complaints or concerns, please PM me. If there is a forfeiture with no speech doc, the speaks are immediately 30/0, or 0/0 in the event of a double loss. If there is a speech doc, use it to determine speaker points. If I messed up, ie, you've been neg 4 times in a row now, you're missing but you haven't lost two rounds, etc, please let me know lol. If there are any further questions, please post in the thread or PM me. Good luck to those remaining! [Aff] vs [Neg] / [Judge] In the UP BRACKET nihilistkitten vs Jw4167 / CynicClinic, Lukrau, vmanAA738 In the DOWN BRACKET TheTrashDebater vs TheSnowball / DavidGriffith, PailAmbrose, lawsonhudson Bayernuard vs ronniesportman / Nonegfiat, sfrpeterm, outlier The rest of the tournament should be fairly simple to tab; after the round dictated by these postings, there will be a BYE for the winner of the UP bracket, as well as two more debates in the DOWN bracket (I think). The winner of the UP will then face the winner of the DOWN for the champion position.

    huh, the url works and leads to whats probably a decent article, but the embed tho
  13. This round, by consent of both debaters, will be a panel. The judges are misrap354, CynicClinic, and nonegfiat. The two added judges are both confident they can judge the round without any sort of bias and are okay with the way it played out.
  14. Also, flipped some stuff around in terms of sides. Hope this works out.
  15. My bad, just flip your round assignments
