I debated in policy for 3 years at Truman high school, along with doing oratory and ld.
you should turn on cameras when it is your turn to speak unless your device can't do that for whatever reason.
quality > speed. we are online so being able to clearly hear arguments matters over speed.
I give feedback, but give me time to finish my rfd and comments.
When it comes to this years policy topic, I have little knowledge on it, so please be clear on your tag lines and what you're referencing to.
Things You shouldn't do
Being sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or any of the ists. If I find you to be doing ANY of these things, I am giving you the lowest ranks possible, you lose the round and I will stop listening.
Giving me a 100-page doc as your evidence. that isn't a speech doc and I shouldn't have to search for what you're saying.
Be weird about giving your evidence to your opponents.
I vote on flow not speaking ability.
I will more likely than not vote on solvency.
do not care for extinction impacts since the likelihood of one plan being able to cause that is unlikely, but have a good internal link and it's valid.
I think cps are pretty cool if ran correctly. unfortunately, that is a rarity. if you do run one please have a net benefit. no net benefit = no case
I do not see a point in running topicality unless you really feel bringing it up is vital in the round. technicality and impact calc is key in topicality. I would like to see it.
(novice running k's? okay)
I like policy args more but on K's, I go as far fem, abolition, and anti-blackness. If you go outside of that I can probably follow and flow. on neg, you need to explain to me extensively on your links, and more on why I should vote on this. weigh the k against the aff. on Aff, I feel kritiks should still be somewhat in the resolution. I will more often than not lean more on the topicality argument if you don't explain to me your case well. Essentially, explain and overextend.
I don't care for abusive args but if you feel something in the round is abusive, run it I guess.
Lastly, HAVE FUN. nothing is worse than being in a round where it is hostile and everyone doesn't want to be there. Trust me I've been in those rounds and I don't want to judge one.
