Vs threads are good for developing your debating skills.

I am part of many debate groups, you find that Vs threads Are a place where people who Debate work on are skills. For Vs threads are not popularity contest. Vs threads are about explaining the powers of the character, and using your Cannon facts and debating skill to demonstrate what side would win. Such as example...

The Sandman (from. Spiderman) vs Gaara (from Naruto) In this thread a debater would start by explaining some cannon facts to give the character you think would win will win. Sand-Man In my opinion would win for a few reasons and factors.
First Strength/speed, Sand-man is able to lift over 75 to 80 tons that alone gives him a huge advantage, on top of that He can pull of hitting Spider-man who been known to dodge bullets on a good day. Factor two stamina: Sandman is can fight for days without needing rest. Other powers that give the Sandman and edge - Sandman Can fuse with stone or other sand to make him self much larger. Sandman can not be killed not by guns not by force, not even by buildings or bombs falling on him. He is also able to change his body structure to be like dust, or harder than steel. As well as take on other forms, like turning his hand into a spear, or hammer, or turning him self into anything around him allowing him to ambush anyone at any time. on top of that he can travel underground at great speeds, or travel through any crack no matter how small it is.
How I see this fight going is Gaara will hold his own against Sandman for many hours if luck holds out half a Day, but soon he will drain of his Chakra and find him self powerless to stop Sandman from crushing him with a fine-blow.

As you can see from this point it be the other person turn to add on to this, or challenge it by showing how Gaara has the advantage.


For those that think vs threads can not work do to the people that think Vs threads are popularity contest, as long as you explain this to them you not get the one worded hit and runs like Naruto this or that than they run off!
In the end there Other things one can do to make sure the rules of a vs thread is taken to heart and to keep those who only plan to turn it into some form of Popularity contest. And that is to give vs threads there own forum section, where the rules of vs threads can be posted above and people like me who love to vs debate can have a place away from the popularity contest that mess up a real Vs thread.
You find there are a lot of people that do get into Vs debates, if only there is A place for them.

Now explain why you agree or disagree with me. (and have you ever been in a real VS debate thread before, if so there really fun and challenging yes or no?

Double-clicked the "Post Topic" twice? Hmm...

Well I assume you want this thread to die so...
