This is a debate that we did over Zoom, choosing the topic and selecting the sides at random. We both had 15 min. to prepare after hearing the topic, and 5 min. of prep time during the debate. Loved doing this, and will post the video as soon as this is accepted.

Well, a shame we didn’t get more votes on this. Still, I’d love to hear from other people about how they think this went, even if it isn’t a formal vote. Thanks again to blamonkey for his in-depth analysis and vote, and of course to tejretics for debating me so well on this fascinating debate!

You previously complained of the lack of votes on this debate. There's three days left in the voting window if you wish to take positive action.

Added:

We should do more of these.

I see, thank you, However I still think with a transcript, it would be easier

It allows you to keep track of live debates so that you don't need a translation.

I read up on it and looks like a good process

Have you heard of the concept of flowing? It helps a lot.

You did not come off as harsh at all. I take the positive with the negative, and appreciate it all.

I hope I didn't come off as harsh. It was still a wonderful debate.

Thank you for the vote and the extensive analysis! This is my impromptu-style debate in... well, too long, and I agree with everything you said about structure and time allocation. Gotta get those skills back...

Added:

just finished listening, I agree with Dr franklin, it is cool to see great debaters squaring off.

>They need to put a transcript on the debate

Nah -- there have been many live debates both on this site and on DDO that have been voted on.

Added:
--> @blamonkey

All I'm sayong is that if they want people to vote, they need to put a transcript on the debate, also the highschool and college shit is irrlelevent, as I was talking about this website

Added:

Yeah, that short time frame can definitely be difficult to work with, but it's also a lot of fun. Several styles of debate use it, and it's incredible to see how arguments build out of such a short period of prep.

Added:
--> @Dr.Franklin

That's unfair. It's a quick debate done at the last minute. This is realistic as many college and high school programs have extemporaneous debate categories. It is quite good by those standards.

Added:
--> @Tejretics @whiteflame

15 minutes of prep? God, that is insane. That's hardly enough for a three minute speech for me. Kudos

Added:
Contender
--> @blamonkey

I think this is pretty close to what a DDO/DART round would look like if the debaters had 15 minutes of prep and did it live, lol...

It’s sort of like WS without replies, except more on-flow and much less emphasis on public speaking ability.

what happened to the other live debates?
