    Out of curiosity, how many of you are interested in having a live debate feature on DebateArt? I know personally I'd like to do more live debates. (If you'd like to do one just let me know.)

    I feel so out of practice actually doing them, but I'd love to dive back in. It's been too long since I've actually done a debate tournament and I'm feeling the itch.

    Not sure if I can do it this week (at long last, I'm trying to get my dissertation submitted by the end of the week), but we can at least plan a debate. Any of the topics I sent you stand out, or do you have one you'd like to do? I could give you more ideas if not.

    Alright. It's been a while, but I recall that I was sending out a set of topics to people on DDO back in the day that I never got to debate. I'll have to go back and find those, but I should be able to send them to you in the next couple of days.

    Oh, and give me a heads up as to when you'll be doing that debate. If it's at a good time, I'd like to watch through and vote in real time.

    Bleh, that’s a problem. Oh well, I’ll catch the video afterward.

    Not certain, I just want to know if the interest is there. Probably something similar though, I imagine we will need a 3rd party embedded into the site's features. It seems difficult to create our own video streaming system.

    I definitely need practice with them, especially since I'm being tossed into the online nationals tournament this year.

    What's different in a live debate, other than the vocalization of one's written argument?
    I suppose a live debate could show a persons quality, rather than that of his argument.
    But what's the necessity of it I mean, unless the 'person, is what one is debating on.

    The difference is that in a live debate you are forced to make on-the-spot refutations. You can't just search up the perfect rebuttal on Google. It is a true battle of wits and charisma.

    Did you take part in online nationals tournaments yet, or still upcoming?

    I've debated Public Forum, Congress, Lincoln Douglas, and Big Question in the NSDA for the past two years, and I took part in Nationals last year... But this year I quit NSDA. It's a cesspool that I'm glad I got out of. So no, I wasn't able to partake in online nats.

    Well, if you find it a cesspool, for the better I suppose.
    Do people on 'this site live debate much, DDO had that Google+ Hangouts link as I recall,
    So I make the assumption this site did something similar.
