    Debate Contests

    Anybody interested?

    Two or more members can agree on something to debate, then I'll make a thread where you can post your opening arguments, main points etc. Then we can get a few unbiased members to act as judges and determine which argument was the best.

    They'll be prizes for winners, but we haven't really agreed on what they could be. I assume it'll be stuff like bigger avatars, shiny names and all that jazz. Here's a link each of the debates:

    Debate #1: Luffy vs Zoro (Allara vs Kong)
    http://www.millenniumforums.com/show...Luffy-amp-Zoro

    Debate #2: East Blue vs Pirate Alliance (MOU vs Kong)
    http://www.millenniumforums.com/show...irate-Alliance

    Debate #3: Mihawk vs Shanks (Efege vs Ultra)
    http://www.millenniumforums.com/show...t=Debate+piece

    Debate #4: DressRosa vs WCI (Efege vs Kunta)
    http://www.millenniumforums.com/show...t=Debate+piece


    Scoreboard
    Allara - 1 win, 0 losses
    Kunta - 1 win, 0 losses
    Kong - 1 win, 1 loss
    Efege - 1 win, 1 loss
    MOU - 0 wins, 1 loss
    Ultra - 0 wins, 1 loss

    NF has implemented this into their battledome thread and has so far featured some good discussions. Id be happy for such debates to occur here

    the number of people should just depend on the number of people who want to participate, no need to be limiting with the number of participants allowed

    I only suggested two because that would be simpler to begin with. It's fine if some people would prefer a team debate instead.

    Maybe have some UNBIASED people vote on the Lucci vs. Sanji thread, who brought up the better arguments and then vote the winner of that thread.

    Also it shouldn't be a public vote either, because some people rather vote over favoritism than over who had better actual arguments.

    A team debate at least makes it more likely that each of the teams will have a decent representative, otherwise the side that has more going for it might have someone like Zoro Meitou carrying the entire team, and then it won't feel like the topic was explored to the best of its ability.

    I understand this is probably to encourage more frequent (and hopefully better quality) debates and arguments, but it this entirely necessary? If you do implement it, please don't keep it around forever as regular debate in "non-special" threads should still be what matters here.
