>Reason for Decision: "mash potatoes are gross" isn't a debate. It could have been put in the comments. R2 was effectively forfeited/waived by Pro. Combined with R3 forfeit, 2/3 forfeits; conduct to Con.
Pro mostly named traits and characteristics of animals that suited their environments, coupled with a claim that a being had to have intelligently created those animals with their features. His claim is unfounded, and all traits, as far as I could tell, had equal claims to natural selection. BoP requires a claim with more basis than an opposite claim. Even if there is a basis, Pro needs to show them. Argument to Con.
Pro's sources described animal characteristics, not corroborated claims. Con's sources showed relevant theories and definitions. Sources to Con.
Pro leaves off proper capitalizations and punctuation.

>Reason for Mod Action: The voter fails to sufficiently justify awarding sources and S/G points. To award sources, the voter must (1) explain how the sources impacted the debate, (2) analyze at least one source specifically, and (3) compare each debaters' source and use of them. The voter only performs the third task. To award S/G, the voter must (1) give specific examples of S/G errors, (2) explain how these errors were excessive, and (3) compare each debater's S/G. The voter does none of these tasks. Argument points were borderline, which means we default to treating them as sufficient. Conduct points were sufficient.

This is not a full forfeit.

Could I have a clarification please!:

“A full-forfeit debate is defined as a debate that has no argument presented by one side following the opening round, resulting in all subsequent rounds being forfeited”

In this debate no argument was presented, but not all subsequent rounds were forfeited. Would this qualify as a full forfeit?

We can rematch if you'd like. I'd prefer more than 5,000 characters if we are to properly battle.
