fun idea

Post by Metacrock » Mon Oct 31, 2011 11:06 am

we did this on my first board years ago it was totally fun. I think everyone loved it.

a debate tournament. You have a partner, you find someone and work together on God arguments. Or on attacking religion arguments. We actually had a judge who was an impartial atheist. I don't know if anyone would want to judge it again.

We could have no designation for winners. Just pear teams up and have them debate to see what they say. what do you think?

we don't have enough people right now. In the day my partner was Urbild. We won all our debates.

the judge was Ian or Socrates as he was known then.

we would have to bring people in from other venues. Or contact members who don't post. It would be a great way to build participation on the board.

so far no one. I'm working on it. I'm asking all the active people now and then I'll start asking recently active people.

Fair enough. There is also the issue of topics, but I guess people will have to respond first.
