I did basically all events in high school and am comfortable and experienced judging everything but congress. In college I debated parli for 4 years at Texas Tech University and was very nationally competitive by the end of my career. I have been coaching for 6 years now and judging for 10.
Extemp: My main thing is to answer the question. If you have a topic, your speech shouldn't be about anything else. If it asks you a yes or no question, your argument should answer that. Sources are critical.
Here are specifics for debate:
What I vote on-
I default Netben unless told otherwise. Impacts and solvency are the best things to convince me to give you my ballot. Be civil or be tanked on speaks.
I don't mind hearing policy style or critical arguments, but you still need to engage with opponents that use Value and Criterion. You can't just format your opponents out of the round.
I'm good with everything. Don't name/card drop at me assuming I have heard the card you are talking about. (Cause I probably don't remember it lol)
I'm ok with it as long as your opponent is ok with it. I refuse to let someone just spread a newer and/or traditional debater out and not allow them to engage in the debate. I will tell you to slow down if I need you to. Particularly so on online tournaments, speed needs to be accessible.
Don't name drop and assume I know what your talking about. I expect links and impacts just like any other argument.
Need to prove abuse, don't just say it is unfair.
Absolutely my favorite thing to listen to in debate.
