Hi y'all! I'm a first-year out who debated (well tried to) at Newton South for four years.

I'm flow enough, but extremely high speed or techiness risks me missing it completely. "Uniqueness determines the direction of a link" or something is a term I never got while debating, and you'd have to really explain it to me now.

New arguments will be thrown out in summary and any new points are thrown out in final focus (if you're the other team, you can shake your head vigorously and look incredulous to help me notice that it's new).

If some evidence is wack, let me know and I'll look at it. REALLY bad evidence may drop speaks and make me throw out the point.

Uncontested defense flows through first summary. I've forgotten all the other rules of PF, but I'm almost definitely chill with them, so if you want any clarification just ask.

Please signpost! I've realized that in my old age my listening comprehension has deteoriated. Without really clear signposting any kind of speed is wasted on me.

WAYS FOR MORE SPEAKER POINTS:

Weighing: but good weighing. It needs to be warranted, it should be comparative, and I would appreciate link weighing as well. If both sides weigh but don't say why their weighing analysis is better, we're back to square one. This is a really easy way to win the round. By default, I prioritize links over impacts.

Calmness: this is a really fun tournament! Enjoying the act of debating is hard when things get tense, but it makes everyone's day better.

Humor: if you make me laugh in any way I'll give you 1 speaker point. Please don't go overboard for this one.

It's really important to read paradigms so I'll give you 0.5 speaker points just by telling me you read my paradigm.

Good luck!
