---------UPDATE 2021--------------------------------------------------

My knowledge about this topic is not as deep as the past years so please unpack your arguments :)

----------INFO------------------------------------------------------------

Add me on the email chain :) ---> elina1025.ec@gmail.com

Pronouns: she/her or they/them

Currently a 2N but was a 2A freshman year.

tldr; whatever arg you like I'm prob fine with it.

Write the ballot for me in the 2ar/nr -->super important and will increase your speaks a lot. It is also because I feel bad to intervene and make my decision that way :(

-------------below are some of my general thoughts-----------------

Tech over truth 99.9999 percent

Drop args count and I will vote on the stupidest arg but you need to tell me why it matters. I would say I have a lower threshold on buying dropped theory arg. you really just have to make it a voter.

Tag team cx ok, cx is binding, flashing/sending doesn't count as prep

Mostly do what you want, I will try to adapt.

Fairness is a internal link to education unless you tell me otherwise.

policy-

cp, da, t-- no one will not be fine with it so... idk what to say. offense is important.

case debates are sooo important! recuttings and indicts makes me happy

kritiks-

k- Most familiar with security, imperialism, gender, abolition etc. Bad k debates are the worst debate. If you don't know the lit then prob don't run it, it will probably tank ur speaks. Contextualize links plzz--> super important. I am not voting for you unless you can explain to me why the aff SPECIFICALLY links to the k. Saying "because they reform they link" is not a link for me. FW+link -->ok , I don't think that the negative (for most Ks) needs to win an alternative if they can prove that the aff sucks or that their structural analysis of the world is both preferable and incompatible with the 1ac.

k aff- unless you can run it well or else bad k aff debates makes me sad. I don't think I am qual to judge a k v k round so plss don't.

Public Forum / LD

I guess if for some reason I am forced to judge one of these rounds I will view the round solely on my flow and mostly on impact calc made in the last speeches

Speaks

I know speaks inflation gets kind of annoying sometimes but I still give relatively high speaks

cheating means auto loss and lowest speaks possible :(

-1 pt when you say "can I start prep?" or "Can I take a minute of prep" or "I'm speaking in 3, 2, 1.." or any variations. You are the one debating and you should be in charge of your own time and I don't need to know that.

Things that will increase your speaks:

1. look at me during cx

2. good case line by line/ good analysis

3. good impact calc in your last speeches

4. actively engage in the debate!

I usually give 28 or higher speaks
