  1. I haven't been on here in a long time, but I noticed there are now react buttons to posts. Is this an attempt to make Cross-x more like Facebook?
  2. Interesting enough, the domain name "crossx.com" is set to expire on May 19, 2019. If David forgets to renew the domain name or someone were to beat him to renewal, they could purchases rights to crossx.com and redirect all traffic (what's left) to an empty website and it'd drive traffic away from David. Just a thought...
  3. That's a shame. It's sad to see this site with such little traffic. It used to be a great place for asking questions and social discussion, but now it's practically dead. I hope the owner is active enough to prevent trolling like the 2017 Manhood Academy incident. Otherwise, this website is bound to fail.

    Manhood Academy

    Hi all, I haven't been on in a while but I wanted to share something I find funny. As some know, the Manhood Academy terrorized Cross-x a few years ago and was relentless in spamming unsolicited posts. Out of curiosity, I decided to look them up today just to see where they are or what they are up to. I noticed that their original Youtube channel name "censorship 4kids" no longer existed. In investigating, there are uploads of previous classes that were held by the "Professor" under the channel name "Manhood Academy". So, I decided to find out if the Manhood Academy still exists. From the information that I've found, it turns out that the Professor, the person that was responsible for initiating these unsolicited posts on Cross-x and the leader of the Manhood Academy, was doxxed. His real name was leaked publicly and he shut down the academy. Now everyone knows what a scummy, annoying, shitty person he is. From posts I am finding about people formerly in the academy, the professor regrets what he has created and he deeply regrets his past. Although, I don't believe it. I think the professor is sad that he is no longer afforded anonymity and he wants to rehabilitate his image. Anyway, I thought I'd share what information I found on the trolls that terrorized Cross-x.
  5. It's like someone updated this with the intention of making it a social media style forum for debate.
  6. I can't be the only one that gets a "Myspace" vibe from this, right? LOL
  7. I think the problem, as with the first ODT, is that everyone involved in this, including the host, competitors, and judges all have different schedules. This makes it seemingly impossible for everyone to post in a timely manner resulting in most, if not all, people eventually forgetting about the tournament. If done again, I would make this tournament shorter, less spaced out, and strictly enforced. I think that it has to be done in the summer after Nats but before summer camps when there is that short week to two weeks of nothing. Just my two cents...
  8. How do I answer and Advantage CP Step 1. You speak Step 2. Done

    I just finished watching the movie on Netflix and I have to say that it was a good Independent film. Although it does not encompass all aspects of debate, the movie does incorporate sentimental underlying themes and shows the importance of maintaining a strong, healthy social life. I would recommend watching. It may not mirror debate exactly, but it is a step in the right direction in helping people understand our activity.

    "You'll qualify for the state tournament and Harvard will give you a full ride." Where is my full ride scholarship at? lol
  11. Thanks for the recognition! I apologize for my inactivity. I am glad that you have taken the initiative to continue the ODT. I have not been on this site for a while but I hope that the trolls form the Manhood Academy have left this site alone. They still have not posted our debate on their YouTube channel; I wonder why? Anyways, if you need any help with this tournament, feel free to let me know. Good luck to everyone competing.
  12. I'd default to the affirmative forfeiting, but that wouldn't do any good since it appears neither debater is even active. I feel like there are a lot of forfeits from rounds 1 and 2 which makes it very concerning for rounds 3 and 4.
  13. Hello all, I have tabulated the results that I've gotten from round 2. I am still waiting on two debates. One of the debates is just an RFD, which I'm not worried about. However, does anyone know if Preeves22 and Ydavid started their round? I can't find their debate anywhere.
  14. Choas, when you get a chance can you PM me your RFD please. After you give an rfd round three will start.

    If PW would've won their semi round then Kapaun would've closed out the tournament.

    You were right, PW had a semis appearance and EH were runner-ups.
  17. Any person that practices an ideology that is radical is someone that should probably be avoided, or at the least isolated from society. Political radicalism has no place in a functioning society. Radical right-wingers are dangerous because they advocate for social and governmental policies that would inevitably fuck over more people than benefit.

    Invasion is bad in almost every context.
  19. I tabbed the results of round 1, and everyone thought it was best to put active debaters with active debaters and forfeited debaters with forfeited debaters. In an effort to do this, I had to pair the two debaters that actually finished their round together (0-1), then I had nine active debaters that I had to pair together (but had to switch sides), then I had to pair the forfeited debaters. Since you are negating this round back to back, I will make sure you get to be affirmative for the last two rounds. Sorry!
  20. Due to popular demand, Round 2 will start now but will not be enforced until Monday, May 29th. In order for a round to start before Monday, there must be consent between the Affirmative and Negative debaters. Otherwise, it gives unjust prep for the negative debater. Pairings: vmanaa738 vs thetrashdebater - Judging: CalculusBC outlier vs nickdb8 - Judging: baudrillbabe pailambrose vs nativewarlock- Judging: Alex Rickard nonegfiat vs diantonion- Judging: Squid Monteith thesnowball vs spookbuster - Judging: Chaos awesomeaj23 vs cynicclinic- Judging: Zzach aquackdebater vs lawsonhudson - Judging: Elmer Yang kissmyaff vs. nicorhanley - Judging: Ried Warma ydavid vs preeves 22 - Judging: Collin Tyner
  21. Yeah, the problem with starting the round now but not enforcing the round until Monday would mean that the neg could possibly have five extra days of prep against the aff. Additionally, the problem that Snowball stated is that the neg still could not answer until Monday, too.
