Topic: Forum Debate Policy Suggestions

I figured I could start this thread to find out how we could increase the fun of our arguments and better defend them. My first suggestion would be to adopt some of the conventions of LD- and Public Forum debate into the forum. As a once-upon-a-time NLD debater, I thought it would be fun if we could

a. use the theory of "if you don't attack, you must agree"

b. use of declared cross-examination, and a required answer to said questions. See letter A. (sorry for the jargon)

c. Any other interesting additions and suggestions.

Let's hear what you have to say.

I was just curious how you guys thought this would go over.
