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.
