Speed- I prefer a moderate to quick, but not ludicrous, pace. If you want to go crazy fast, that's fine, but understand I might miss some details. At any speed, I really value clarity. It's also good to know that some days (because of dumb health things) I physically won't be able to flow super quickly, so it wouldn't hurt to double check with me about speed before round.
Arguments- I'm very open to whatever style of argument you want to make in round, so long as you do it well. Don't just dump cards, actually offer in round analysis and engage with your opponent's arguments. Regardless of the style, I prefer some sort of weighing mechanism in round, though that could be a value/criterion, single standard, R.o.B, etc.
Other things- I am a fan of content warnings before round if you're running anything dealing with something sensitive. I am not a fan of hateful or discriminatory things being said in round, and will hesitate (heavily) to vote on anything racist/sexist/ableist. Additionally, problematic things (like racism/sexism/ableism, misgendering your opponent, anything that makes the debatespace hostile to your opponent) will be reflected in your speaker points.

My preferences for public forum debate are as follows...
I want to see clash and impacts clearly. I would like to receive LOTS of analysis and explanation with contentions and cards. During speeches, I expect proper decorum and respect for your opponents, especially in cross examination when directly speaking with one another. During summary, I would like the round summarized not another rebuttal and then strictly voters in final focus. I want to see the big impacts of my vote and what ¨the world¨ would be like if I voted in affirmation or negation.
