PF. I strongly believe that the educational value of PF is in its "lay-ness" and access to the "general public." As such, please speak with vocal inflection and "persuasion," like you are making a speech to a human being, and not to a professional debate coach. Additionally, please avoid jargon, when possible. Please write my ballot for me in your last speech(es). I don't like intervening.
Also, I was in the LD pool for many years, so if you choose to have a framework in your constructive case, please know how to use it!
Novice LD. In Prelims, please stick to a V/VC debate, and debate the resolution. A good framework debate prior to contention-level debate is preferred. Give clear voters and impact back to the VC in your last speech. You may ask to see each others' cases during CX/Prep time, and you are free to ask clarification questions to each other during prep time. Speed is okay, but must fill up all of time.
