I’m a tabula rasa judge with a heavy commitment to nonintervention. (This means I'm not gonna call for cards unless they're contested in the round and I believe they're relevant to the RFD)
Don’t extend every single thing you read in case.
Frontlining in second rebuttal is smart but not required. It’s probably a good idea if they read turns.
I need parallelism (summary+FF) for any offense you want me to vote for.
Cards are cool but don't overload your extensions w/ card tags b/c I often miss them when I'm flowing and I'll have no clue what you're talking about.
I like analytical arguments, not everything needs to be carded to be of value in a round. (Warrants )
I don’t require defense in either summary, although it usually makes sense to extend in 2nd summ. With that being said, if your opponents frontline case in 2nd rebuttal, you should probably extend defense in 1st summary. Once you know what your opponents are going for in 1st summary, it's probably also a pretty good idea to extend defense to that argument in 2nd summ. Defense is most important for me in Final Focus though, so if you want me to delink/NU the offense they're going for, say it in FF.
Signpost pls. Roadmaps are a waste of time if I don’t know when you’ve moved from one arg to another.
I have a pretty high threshold for extensions, saying the phrase "extend our 1st contention/our impacts" will get you lower speaks and a scowl. You need to re-explain your argument from fiat to impact in order to properly "extend" something in my eyes.
I love me some good framework.
I may look like I’m timing stuff, but I just like to watch the clock run. Track each other’s prep.
Theory is fine, but make it PF. Sometimes works okay in rounds, but please don't read a shell in front of me. Won’t intervene, but pls don’t try to meme w/ theory, it's meant to check back legitimate abuse claims in debate rounds.
I will vote for kritikal args if you win/extend role of the ballot :-)
