Azrael the minumum for cr mail is $15. Not that that matters but yeah we had this discussion anyway. I'm getting there but I need to save money for my Cancer Society group and all...

Basically the topic is two fold but I don't quite get the connection between them.
1. America currently has a large role in global affairs, but will this continue in the near future?
2. Where is the center of American society?

I don't know how to paraphrase the second one really except is what does American society revolve around? I may be getting the wrong impression though.


okay. thanks. dont expect the essay though.

No, you like the idea of supporting CR. If you really wanted to support CR, you'd actually be a "supporter" with a little star next to your name. Their are plenty of options for minors to send money now, and I refuse to beleive that the vast majority of users here under 18 can't afford 6 bucks a month. You can't have life to bad if you have access to a computer and internet access. I understand not being a supporter if you're still checking the site out and all that, but at a certain point you're just a cheap leach - end of story.

I'm not sure how a "debate team" would really support the site. Advertise for it? I really don't think lack of traffic is a problem around here.

Anyone who would actually be qualified for such an endeavor would first, know better than to get involved with it, and second, most likely not have the time to commit to it in the first place.


Unless of course I turned out to be...like what is it again? Oh yes, 16. I'm not a legal adult, my friend, I don't have any say what I spend my money on. That falls in the hands of my parents. In any case, I don’t want to fight over this. So…

Lol, Kenshin. 38 to 70 points, wow! I wonder how much you will have next time I see you.

Jam: I suppose that is true, but do we really want people who are not interested enough to write a brief essay? Well, I suppose there is no point in making people do work for no reason. Anyway, I don’t want to discourage people either. So, I suppose if you could copy and past a previous post on this forum, or send me a message to tell me a little about yourself that would work also. I suppose, if he agrees to it, you could also send a message to Jam.

Also, this is still open to the general public. Anyone who would like to do so may still join in. Also, now that I think back, I thought that the two questions in that topic were a bit random myself... I hated that quote, so ignore it! (If you've already started on an essay I wont count it against you.)

I was thinking about starting up a Crunchy Roll debate team…
I suppose what we will do is find an outside source where we can hold private debates in a more organized fashion than is available here. I’m not sure where, but hopefully somebody who joins might have suggestions. So far this is just a idea, or aspiration, a short term dream if you will. However, I think that it is a good way to gather educated and intelligent people together and create a mentally and morally challenging outlet.

Post here if you want to join. If you have further questions, or suggestions (I’m more than just open to them) message me!



A. I would Like to Join
B. I have a suggestion for the "outside source" you speak of, A different website, but much more organized for things like this.
C. I have sent you a message with the details, Hope to hear from you, even if this was 3 months ago.

this would be a really cool thing to do but i dont think this will go anywhere (thats just what i think)
Posted 6/27/07
I think you might have had good intentions going into this..but seriously this is a rather laughable idea. Looking back on two posts Noodles and Azrael910's previous ones ...what they say is entrely true....You know with the average useron this site is not inclined on most serious or intellectual topics soo everything would be turned into a naruto or onepiece arguement...then as Az said.... the ones who are actually fit and intelligent enough to keep real debate topics afloat probabaly have better things to be doing anyhow. I mean who really wants to join a online debate team on an anime site filled with 12,13 and 14 yr old children who have nothing but "ZOMG NARUTO RULES" to the topic of presidential hopefuls or possible solutions for global warming. I really think this is going to fall flat on its face (esp with half the members ive already seen say yes theyd be up for it)

oh stop your little bitch fit. sure they could donate but they don't. it doesnt matter if the thread starter supports CR monetarily. in one or two years this site will be fucking gone. and being a cheap leech is the only reason why this site exists. if it was required to pay $6 a month no one but those who donate consistently would be here. the site owners knew that there would be more cheap leeches than there were generous donators. deal with it.

and by the way, the lack of intelligence on CR forums makes me laugh at the idea of starting a debate team.

^^ That's true. But shouldn't the ones who actually fit and intelligent enough to keep real debate topics that actually want to join be smart enough to ignore the childish debators who don't feel like debating about serious topics? Besides, wouldn't a serious debate club be more monitored, to avoid childish debators? Crunchyroll doesn't mind stuff like, which is better, this anime or that, so ofcourse they wouldn't filter it out. A club based on serious debating would filter out debates like that, because it does mind that type of stuff.
