Hmm, even though this was last active about a month ago, I'm still curious as to whether anyone is still game for the idea?
If so, I'm really quite interested. ^^'

:and I also think it would make debating easier if were were able to push the boundaries of the PG-13 rule, as Gev said.

I was thinking about starting up a Crunchy Roll debate team… I don’t mean to haze people, but I’ve been avoiding political threads because the mass of childish arguments that are started up within them. (Amongst other reasons.) Still, there are a few intellectuals on here who I quite enjoy to debate with. So, was thinking I might start up a debate team with some of these people, and some other interested individuals…

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.

One that requires and encourages people to think about things, to question their own views. I’m not going to try and convert anyone from their religious beliefs, but religion will likely be a topic that come along eventually. So, if you are not comfortable with such topics do not get involved. Also, I’m not going to censor anyone. Although I hope anyone who joins will be mature enough to use prudent and respectful terminology and treat others in an dignified manor….

So far I can only think of a few requirements, and I have not decided how I will run everything. That mostly depends on where our external outlet can be found. Here, however, are the necessary qualifications:

1. I want to support Crunchyroll, so you must at least have an account on the website to join.

2. You must have at least decent grammar, and a slight understanding of at least a few political topics.

3. You must be willing to actually look into topics. You must study!

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



Well whoever did post about NOT joining,
It's a good thing, because it clearly says post here if you want to join.
Haha, but if this is still a go,
I'd love to join.

I'm not exactly sure as to how it would work, I mean, would all the debating be done through PM's? Lets be honest, if we were to make a topic, even if we were to say debate team only in the subject line, it would still be spamed by people who will post anywhere for some CR points. However, there is really no point in having the team if we cannot have public debates, for that you can just PM whoever you wish to debate, and have a private discussion there. Perhaps if there was some sort of feature added so that only those in the team could post in certain threads, but thats asking a lot of the staff in my opinion, even so if this is addressed, then I would be more then happy to join.
