Interested in Debating?
Hey everyone, I don't think many people are aware of this but there is a section of this forum dedicated to debating called "Debate Hall". However in order to join this exclusive section requires being inducted into the debators. To be inducted you must prove you can debate thoughtfully.

So this thread is to inform everyone that such an area exists and to see if this is something anyone is interested in.

Topics have included:
- People and Technology - is today's society more dependent on technology than in the past?
- The Use of Profanity - What makes the words so inappropriate?
- Bullying
- Piracy - Should actions be taken?

It's really easy.

Give us a topic and explain your side. We have to defend the opposing side and if you can convince us why your side is in the right (or wrong) then you join.
Don't give us a simple topic that seems stupid. Give something reasonable that can be explained on both sides. (PRO vs. CON)

I'm open for pms whenever. Orboknown doesn't need 5 different topics at a time, he's already crazy. Tongue

SparrowHawk has offered some potential topics that you send a pm about.

  • Is television an effective way of building the minds of children?
  • Are "violent" video games appropriate for children?
  • Are single sex schools more effective than co-ed?
  • Do celebrities get away with more crime?
  • Should High schools provide daycare services for students with babies? (I had the same idea.)
There are many of topics out there. You can also use resources to support your answer. Make sure you give us a link to your resource if it was found using the Internet.

Members:
- Orboknown
- SparrowHawk
- Knost
- PcKaveman
- Snoozn
- Anomandaris Giovanni Rake
- Uncle Lung Fish
- Nitz_x
- Pein
- Rock gyo
- Lamb
- Guider 456
- KingOH
- Quanto_Konami


(Will update list as more people join)

Please send pms to anyone that is a member of Debate Hall. I suggest Sparrowhawk, Orboknown and myself for the time being simply because I know the three of us will get back right away.

Other members of Debate Hall, if you are still active and are willing to receive pms then just let me know

I don't care to join a debate hall, but I'd love to debate that there is nothing wrong with profanity. I think it's a colorful and creative way to express your emotions.

I think you could have fun in the debate hall there Alduin. It's a place to argue with people essentially. Besides, you can offer up topics as well and see what other people's opinions are on them.

RE: Interested in Debating?
Pick a mature topic to discuss in pm. If you defend your side efficiently, we will discuss it and come to a group vote on whether you join or not.
It's really easy.

Give us a topic and explain your side. We have to defend the opposing side and if you can convince us why your side is in the right (or wrong) then you join.
Don't give us a simple topic that seems stupid. Give something reasonable that can be explained on both sides. (PRO vs. CON)

I'm open for pms whenever. Orboknown doesn't need 5 different topics at a time, he's already crazy. Tongue

RE: Interested in Debating?
A few topics of interests that have not been introduced to the Debate Hall :
  • Is television an effective way of building the minds of children?
  • Are "violent" video games appropriate for children?
  • Are single sex schools more effective than co-ed?
  • Do celebrities get away with more crime?
  • Should High schools provide daycare services for students with babies? (I had the same idea.)

Even though I am doing this in college, I do not think I would be very good at it.  I tend to look at things from as many sides and different angles as I can, before I make a decision... I can even argue against my own points... >.<

RE: Interested in Debating?
You could have just thrown in a topic @SparrowHawk ^.-
 
How about whether or not bratwurst are "fancy hot dogs" (even though hot dogs are quite different for each country) ?

Or whether or not it is okay or wrong to refer to the monsters in this game as Pokemon? Tongue That certainly opened up quite a debate in chat yesterday!!

Maybe the news today. Do you think they just tell us want our governments want us to hear or whether media is, in fact, impartial?

Just a few ideas Smile
