The 2003 TTF Debating Tournament - Discussion

Should we have 5 judges or 4 + a poll?

    Votes: 18 81.8%
  • There's nothing wrong with 4 judges and a poll

    Votes: 3 13.6%
  • Either way is fine

    Votes: 1 4.5%

Just let me know.
Thank you Finduilas But I have my full quota of judges now.

Well, with the current number of votes standing 3-1 in our favor, we can assume that the GoE will have it's first win in this tournament. :D

I have contacted Nev, who hopes to be able to judge soon. I haven't heard from Captain; is there a policy for replacing absent judges, assuming he doesn't contact me within, say, the next week?

Rhiannon, Nev is judging for the GoE, correct?

If so, I can do the judging for you.

I'd accept, Scatha, but that would put you in the position of judging your own guild.

So, neither Nevavarein of the EruhĂ­ni or Captain of the Scholars have been able to find time to judge the Ost-in-Edhil vs. Tolkienology Round 9 debate.

Can either of these guilds recommend a replacement judge capable of judging immediately?

Maybe you could ask Inderjit, jallan, Rumil or Idril of the Scholars? (just to name a few...)

And perhaps Bethelarien from EruhĂ­ni?






Just pick two that will vote in favour of OiE...:D

Both Beth and I are also members of the GoT, which has never prevented us from giving an impartial judgement, Arvedui.

Either of us could and would judge for Rhiannon if asked.
Omnipotent_Elf would also be available, I think.

So Far from GoE. :)


Secondary:

Will the last of the judges for the debate of GoE vs GoT please put in their votes!!
