  1. @debategirl52 you DO NOT have my permission to record ANYTHING that I have EVER said on this site or this forum or this page or anything else.
  2. Sorry about your policy season... 2 things 1. try college kids. They could always use more money 2. Talk it up (the debate program) at school to all gradelevels and u will get more members.

    The NDCA started in the 10-11 season
  4. Talk to your coach, Your coach might help you with the money part if thats it. If its that your mom is being stubborn, again talk to your coach because your coach has probably been in this situatuon before. As for outside sources that help your cause https://www.csmonitor.com/1985/0322/kspeech.html https://www.studyinternational.com/news/12-ways-debating-will-help-you-for-the-rest-of-your-life/ https://www.nfhs.org/articles/speech-and-debate-opportunity-should-be-provided-for-all-students/ https://yp.scmp.com/education/debating/article/109478/benefits-debate-can-help-you-succeed-all-areas-life-not-just https://urbanparli.org/benefits-of-debates Also Email College coaches if its a college camp your thinking abou attending because they again can probably help and most of the time are willing to help and definately have been there done that. Also, you dont have to go to camp as I'll DM you some places to get the evidence from camps. If your parents dont/wont let you go to debate camp, you can also just meet with coaches/other students and even your partner once he/she gets done from debate camp! You can find a lot of the things that help you in terms of speaking online and about the only thing you cant do is the seminars (if youve never been to debate camp before its the most boring part).
  5. 1. this looks fake 2. if you cant pay thats a school board issue... if you want refrence to this read the book (ironically) named "Cross X" Its by joe miller 3. are u sure your eligible? (http://nietoc.com/name-search/) if your name isnt in that database then your not... 4. WA to omaha isnt that far of a drive... no need to fly 5. Your gofund me goal isnt even enough to cover entry cost... not to mention Hotel's food travel and other things. 6. Again this looks fake and it looks bleak for you... Take it up with your school board... Also no one at NIETOC will care what your backround is (HARD TRUTH) sorry...

    This site

    While that's great David and all, we all (even more so you) need to make a decision, either openly say you want to sell the website or promote it. (This is the BEST policy website all over the web. People can get help when they need it and ask questions but the thing I would do is sell the site or improve it and get more users. I think that I speak for most of the active users on this site when I say this that we aren't forcing you to sell the site but either try to get it back to early 2000s levels or sell the site. I think the site can be improved by letting the active users have more of a moderating role... Also open it up to suggestions... see what the users want if you keep the site. We just want to maintain the best policy site on the web.
  17. why dont you make more people mods?
  18. Literally, if you have any sort of a competent judge continuous fiat is bad (fiat bad in general) because it just allows the aff to say fiat, fiat, fiat, fiat, so the arg there is its bad for db8 Also side note here is another really common type of fiat and how to answer it

  21. Ok here it is Durable Fiat Interp: The aff can fiat the action of the plan getting passed in Congress, but not that it is enforced by the current administration 1. Process DAs and Circumvention are key neg ground—unlimited durable fiat eliminates Politics DAs which hurts small schools that rely on generics and means we can’t test the political solvency of the aff 2. Most Real world—passed policies are revised to fit different needs, the aff needs to defend plan implementation, and since immigration is a highly politicized issue, fiating away political implications is unrealistic 3. Infinitely regressive—fiating away the implementation of the plan justifies fiating away any implications of the plan, allows them to no link out of all of our DAs Our interp isn’t abusive—the aff can still argue that the plan is popular or unpopular and that it won’t be rolled back
