    Ok. Official next debate topic gets posted tomorrow this time. All contestants have the opportunity to report if they aren't available in the next week between now and then. If I hear nothing, I'll assume you're available and you may get assigned to play. The goal is to get both debates done in the next week or so in order to move on to the next round. I'm sure somebody wants to be able to ban a mod. :p

    I'm really sorry, but my work hours just doubled, due to extenuating circumstances. So, I'll have to be withdrawing from the game.

    So then, we send what our next week availability is?

    Yes, please. That would be ideal. Normally I send out the tasking at random, but that's been historically a pain in the ass. So just let me know when you're available and then I'll set the date/time based on that. Thanks. :)

    Next Debate: US immigration policy is sufficient and the current debate about the illegal immigration problem in the US is a result of poor enforcement, vice a need for a new policy.

    Lowbacca_1977 will be assigned the "For" position (i.e. defends the above statement) and Suzuki_Akira will be "against".


    Date: Thursday
    Time: 3 p.m. board time (6 p.m. EDT)

    Reminder: You do have the right to refuse a given debate without penalty once during a season. If you wish to refuse (can't be here, don't like the topic, etc), PM me as soon as possible so that a replacement debater can be named. Players are also authorized to "swap" positions if you both agree to it.

    I will follow up with a PM to both of you now.

    Edit: :oops: Board time is 3 hrs behind, not ahead!

    One of our players isn't available this Thursday, so we're going to have to move things to the weekend. I'll check my schedule and update here as soon as I have a time.

    Ok, Gentlemen. Let's begin with a quick confirmation that everyone's on station and ready to go. After that, we'll begin with Lowie's opening statement and follow up with Suzi's. Good luck, gents!

    Please confirm that you're ready to go.

    Hmm...it would seem that your competition is running a bit behind...

    We'll give him a few minutes.

    If I can have the girls, I wouldn't consider this a total loss

    Well, if Suzi doesn't show up in the next 15 mins or so, he'll get a 24 hr ban and you'll get colors, the dancing girls, AND a trip to the second round. ;)

    Well this is bloody annoying. [face_frustrated]

    I guess that's a wrap. Congrats, Lowie. I guess Suzi either had a real life and forgot to mention it or you scared him off with your intellectual prowess.

    In any case, it looks like you're our default winner and earn 24 hrs of colors for showing up. :p I'll be posting the second round brackets following the Jello/Blubeast battle.

    Update:


    1. Hammurabi
    2. ophelia*

    5. Jello
    6. Suzuki_Akira
    7. Jansons_Funny_Twin
    8. Obi-Zahn Kenobi*

    *Winner


    Thank you all, and thanks for participating in...oh...never mind. :(

    Well, not the way I'd like to win, but I'll take it.

    So, when I get the colours part of it, is that a setting I'll have to change and if so, where?

    Congrats. Yeah. Hit the "Admin" button (it's a new one that you have in your list next to your username). You'll have to create an Admin password. Once you do that, just click on "Change name style" and the rest is self-explanatory.
