Rishit Pradhan Paradigm

Last changed 22 September 2021 9:52 AM PDT

Hi I am Rishit Pradhan debate for a while at Stockdale HS. I enjoy the activity

i would consider myself a pretty experienced judge, and have judged a substantial amount of LD rounds at various tournaments including CHSSA middle school State. Furthermore, I also have helped teach many kids LD and continue to do so rn.

I have done Circuit LD for a good amount of tourneys with mostly decent performances making bubble rounds a couple times. I also did extemp and got multiple TOC and ETOC bids and broke at nationals I also did trad ld at some invitationals broke at one and locals. I also did PF won some tourney. I also did XDB won a couple tourneys broke at Nats.

Anything is fair in debate and war (except war crimes which translates to homophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, xenophobia, etc. in debate) (also don’t be a jerk)

My voting is pretty even for each side. I have never Sat so far.

I will evaluate any argument if it has a claim and a warrant.

I don’t believe in this whole idea of Tech vs Truth on judge paradigms, but our perceptions of “truth” attract judge intervention, so I only go with Tech

Updated for Stephen Stewart CA-LD:

To win my ballot in lay you have to convince me to vote for u based on the winning round FW. No cap I’m cool with you conceding your framework to your opponent if you can win under it. The whole point of a FW is to help evaluate the round, not to act as an “offensive arg”. Even if you lose the FW debate, if you prove why your contentions link better to your opponents FW than theirs, you have my ballot.

Do impact calc always!!

Make sure to explain why/how you win in rebuttals (2ar/1nr)

Extend your case across the flow, nonextended arguments will be considered Dropped/I will judge kick them.

Conceded args are true if they have a claim and warrant and are extended until the end of the rd.

Quick Prefs (Circuit): (not what I like but what I feel is the easiest to judge)

1 - Theory/Larp

2 - K/clean tricks

3 - Bad tricks/Pomo stuff

4/5 - Phil (pls do not run I don’t understand)

Speaks:

everyone gets a 30 unless you do something that’s really strategically bad. I don’t like speaks. If you do anything that harms safety in debate space tho that’s an L 20 moment. Evidence ethics violations is a L 20 moment too.

If you’re debating in front of me at JV KRFL then I’m a parent judge!

Also don’t bully novices just chill
