Yes, email chain normadelgado1441@gmail.com. Disclose as soon as possible.

I currently debate for CSU Fullerton. I debated for two years in high school for LAMDL/ Bravo in policy debate.

General things

-Don't be rude. Don't make the round deliberately confusing or inaccessible. Take time to articulate and explain your best arguments. If I can't explain what happened during the debate because of messy/ incomplete arguments, then that's on you.

-Spreading is fine, but be loud. I won't flow if I can't hear you (make sure your audio works prior to speech).

-Extend arguments, not authors. I flow your arguments and sometimes your author's initials & year.

-A dropped argument is true, assuming you substantiated, impacted, and weighed it.

-Sending evidence isn't prep, but don't take too long.

-In the event of a technical difficulty, I will try to be as reasonable as possible.

Specific stuff

[AFFs] I think affs should have some reasonable connection to the topic and have some action. I will reward creative arguments. Win the likelihood of solvency + framing.

[CPs] CPs are cool as long as you have good mutual exclusivity evidence; otherwise, I am likely to be persuaded by a perm + net benefit arg. PICS are also cool if you have a good answer to theory.

[DAs] I really like DAs. Opt for specific links. Do evidence comparison for me. Weigh your impacts and challenge the internal link story. Give your framing a net benefit.

Also, I am more persuaded by impacts with good internal link evidence vs a long stretch big stick impact. Numbers are particularly persuasive here.

[T/Theory] I have a high threshold for voting on minor T/Theory violations when impacts are not contextualized. I could be persuaded to vote on a rebuttal FULLY committed to T/theory and it's well impacted (!)

I am more persuaded by education and skills-based impacts as opposed to claims to fairness. It depends on how the rebuttal spins it.

[Ks/K-affs] Ks are my favorite argument to hear. That being said, I am not going to pretend I know all your authors, so you are better off doing more work to explain your theory of power and links. Framing is everything. Explain why the alt is preferable.

k on the neg: I love seeing teams go 1-off kritiks and go heavy on the substance for the link and framing arguments. I wished k debaters would generate more clash on case and develop strategic rebuttals. Please impact your links and generate offense throughout the debate.

k on the aff: I like strategic k affs that make innovative and creative solvency arguments. Make sure I don't forget about the significance of the 1ac and give me reasons to prefer your framing to evaluate your aff's impacts and solvency mechanism. The 2ar needs to be precise on why voting aff is good and overcomes any of the neg's offense.

[FW] Choose the right framework for the right aff. I am more persuaded by education & skills-based impacts. Justify the model of debate your interpretation advocates for and resolve major points of contestation. I really appreciate when teams introduce and go for the TVA. Talk about the external impacts of the model of debate your propose (impacts that happen outside of round).
