I am a volunteer and new to judging. I have read some information about this topic and watched some videos on PFD. I appreciate slow delivery and clear analysis of why you should win in the final focus.
Drawing my academic experience, I plan to look at the following aspects:
* Structured arguments. I believe that a better way to support a position is to make arguments with a clear and easy to follow structure, rather than just to stack lots of evidences (e.g., quotes or numbers).
* Depth. I believe that a few focused arguments with reasonable depth are more convincing than a collection of overwhelming, but shallow arguments.
* Good manner. I believe that debate is won by argument and manner. I do not tolerate those behaviors or words that are regarded as disrespect, rudeness, racism, sexism, etc.
