Default Say It Like It Is: Section Rules

Rules of the Debate Section

Forum run by: Melissax

Here in the debate forum we expect a certain sense of decorum from you members. Some of us take debates very seriously, so there are some special guidelines that you’ll be required to follow.

  • Arguments and debates are bound to get heated, so if you can't take it, think twice before participating in debates.
  • Do not post duplicate debates. Duplicates will be deleted.
  • Topics that aren’t debatable are subject to be deleted.
  • If we mods feel a debate has gone too off-topic or has just become a personal attack/fight, the debate will be closed. We don't need that sort of negativity here.
  • If you would like your debate deleted, please post in the request thread.
  • Threads that have inactive for over a year will be routinely deleted.
  • All Diva Chix rules apply. Please familiarize yourself with them here.

Things to keep in mind
  • Make sure your debate has two clear sides. It’s not a debate if everyone agrees.
  • If someone posts something off-topic, there is no need to point it out. Doing so does not add to the debate, and most off-topic posts get deleted anyway.
  • Not everyone will agree with you, but be respectful of their opinion.
  • Be open-minded. Most debates have two or more valid points of view, so be prepared that not everyone will agree with you. Try to see the other side of the argument and don't take things personally.
  • Use proper English. Serious debaters have no patience for chatspeak, poor spelling/grammar, or bad punctuation. Your point will be all the more valid if it is stated with clarity.
  • Be prepared to back up your points with evidence. Sometimes people will ask where you got your information from, so be prepared to do a little research. Also keep in mind that opinions are not facts.
  • Don’t make it personal. Anecdotes from people’s personal lives are irrelevant and do not belong in debates.
  • Don’t correct people’s bad spelling/grammar. While we debaters value good typing, there’s no need to be obnoxious about it. If you feel really bothered about the way someone types, please tell them politely or leave them alone.
  • Be clear in your points. Stating them plain and simple can make debating go a lot smoother.

In addition to these rules, please review this announcement pertaining to debates located here. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM Melissax. Thank you!
