The way we will end up running it will problem change dramatically pretty soon. We are looking to get a seperate room set up so that things don't get lost in the clutter of the leftovers forum, and so at that point we will be able to have mutiple debates running at the same time with polls for voting, and also with a set of posted rules, the schedule, etc. We may temporarily suspend the debates until we get that up, but once we do hopefully we can get a system running smoothly. I also think that in the future we will probably have the arguments submitted to a panel member via PM and then posted anonymously so that people don't take cafe standing and/or grudges against people into account in their voting. With that said, thank you very much to both dallauz and supasonic for being on top of the ball, and putting together a pair of well articulated arguements to open the tourney
