I don't mind if there isn't anything on there about burdens but I do mind if it is only pro that is designated a burden of proof. This isn't just to catch out bad judgments but to give some guidance t...
|Community Judging Standard - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-18 18:26:58|
All I am saying is that there does exist a burden of proof for con, hence it is not fair to create a judging system that decides votes based solely on the burden of proof of Pro. For different types o...
|Community Judging Standard - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-18 16:02:10|
If everyone forfeits then you have the situation is is used at the moment; Pro gets awarded the points. As I said I am not against this. Con can win without substantive as you define it because t...

The problem in trying to create an exact copy of a real life scenario for what is essentially a competition means that the competition is unbalanced. In real life Pro has more of a burden of proof bec...
|Community Judging Standard - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-18 11:32:43|
It's not a fair system though as pro has to do a lot of work and con can be required to to very little to be given a win based on the judges beliefs that pro has failed to meet their burden. It is als...
|Community Judging Standard - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-17 22:54:50|
A fairer system is to say burden of proof is shared or equal ie each side have their own burdens in which they have to prove their case. The judge then has to decide who has done the best job of provi...

Sounds excellent for this comp :) Trying to look out the 2014 debates but I don't think they are headlined as tournament debates :(
|WODC - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-16 09:58:53|
Probably the 2014 ones, I'll have a look for them and post the ones I find. What is Australs elimination?
|Community Judging Standard - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-16 09:49:55|
Small edit: you have avoidance instead of awarded I think in the bit about judge ramblings. Maybe a note on "dropped arguements" would be good. Something like any material not responded...
|WODC - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-16 09:30:00|
Never been involved in one before however I have seen a few debates done on some really bizzare motions. How about the use of actual worlds motions for the comp?
|New Issues to add - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-09 23:14:22|
This would also be good to have a look through: http://www.debate-motions.info/eudc-motions They are the previous EUDC motions.

|U.S. Minimum Wage - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-05-02 17:33:09|
correct most states have a higher minimum wage than the federal which is fine and it shows that for most states the federal minimum wage has little impact on the amount of money given out. However the...

|U.S. Minimum Wage - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-29 00:34:33|
I looked up the living wage calculator site: http://livingwage.mit.edu/metros/26620 to give an example from it I clicked on Huntsville, Alabama: living wage for 1 adult is $10.13, with 1 chi...
|U.S. Minimum Wage - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-29 00:20:12|
so the minimum wage for the UK the now is £7.20 for 25s and overs, £6.70 for 21-24, £5.30 for 18-20 and £3.87 for under 18s. I definitely think that under £5 pounds ...

|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-17 14:50:16|
Not all the time. I have seen judgements that have large amounts of justification and comparison and are still voted "vote bomb". I have also seen votes which are limited in their analysis a...

|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-11 11:55:21|
I like your idea and it is not mutually exclusive to what I am suggesting. Like I said there is already a resource that admin has put up about how he would judge. This is something that he could say i...
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-11 01:21:42|
Very true but I think that you setting a judging standard for general debates is still applicable and I think it is possible to introduce resources for the top three most widely used formats given tha...
|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-11 01:15:59|
I think what is missing is a specific judging standard and format for the site. This means that those who are used to L-D debates would judge based on that framework and those who do BP would judge on...

|Judging: How should it be done? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-08 22:14:35|

|Is the GOP the party of the rich? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-08 08:15:17|
All I said is that from their own policies suggest they consider those who are wealthier first, all of those are separate issues and don't automatically relate to the free market. On the issue of the ...
|Legal Polygamy? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-08 08:05:55|
I think we do in order to ensure safety and equality for each person. For example you say you are totally fine with same-sex marriage but with your policy this would be done on the whim of the religio...
|Is the GOP the party of the rich? - Posted by Bifurcations 2016-04-07 14:55:17|
I think this shows that their policies do tend to favour richer or middle class Americans before those who are working class or in poverty. http://www.ontheissues.org/Republican_Party.htm#Welfare...
