I'm a sophomore and have been a public forum debater since last year. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
Add me to the email chain: my email is email@example.com.
If you have any questions about the round, my decision, or debate in general, please don't hesitate to ask or email me after the round :)
Things I want to see:
- Warranted arguments
- Interaction w/ the opponents' arguments: I'll likely mention dropped args/etc in my feedback but it won't impact my decision unless the other team points it out and tells me why the dropped arg matters
- If you want me to consider an arg/response/impact in my ballot, extend it throughout all your speeches
- Off-time roadmaps and signposting (!!) are appreciated
- In summary and final focus: tell me why you won the round w/ weighing, voters, line-by-line, etc
Things I don't want to see:
- Be rude: I will dock speaks.
- Spread: if I miss an arg, that's on you
- Bring up new args in the last half of the round: I won't vote off it bc your opponents don't have adequate time to respond
- Lie: about anything. Your evidence needs to say what you claim it says; I want to intervene as little as possible, so tell me to read and/or why I should drop badly cut evidence
- Discriminate: at all. Your speaks will nosedive and I may drop you.
- 30: v good
- 29-28: pretty good
- 27-28: average
- 25-27: not bad
- Below 25: congrats, you messed up
