It's not the resolution that makes a great debate but it can be the resolution that makes a bad debate much worse.

It's the person you debate against along with you and the chemistry between you that decides how great a debate will go.

My favourite resolutions are 'X is Y in the context of Z' this is the single best format where Y is an adjective that is somewhat scaled either qualitatively or quantitatively and Z refers to a specific context in which the scaling applies.

For whatever reason I really gravitate towards NFL debates like which team will win which division or who is a better player. 

I also get intrigued by debates regarding foreign policy issues that arent debated very often. Intervention in Venezuela, intervention in Cuba, Aid to Israel, withdrawal from Afghanistan...... Any of those things immediately catch my interest and are the ones I would willingly vote on without being specifically asked.
