Three days isn't enough time to post arguments. Generating quality content takes time. People have busy lives and can rarely afford to prioritize debating. If there were substantially more time to post arguments - e.g. 2 weeks or 30 days - there would be more free time available within those larger windows to allocate for making quality debate content. I'm frequently disinclined to debate because of the three day time frame. When you forfeit rounds because you don't prioritize debating you're penalized. (e.g. https://www.debateart.com/debates/910 ) It's lame. It would be better if people had the option to debate more on their time and more when they want to rather than the status quo of post something or lose.

I agree with this. On Edeb8 there is an option to give up to a week and to even ask your opponent for extra time. I think that would be beneficial here and it would definitely be beneficial to me.

Always will support this, can help a noobsniper do it far more elegantly because just by stalling you can get the opponent to give up since they use the site infrequently.

5 and 7 day options would be ideal, but the default should probably be 36 hours.

If you want to see the likelihood of such an idea. Post it in the platform development section. Debateart.com can tell you if it is possible in the short term or even in the long term.

You only need the two week option for Round 3 :)
