1. This is all in fun. Feel free to take it seriously, but keep yourself grounded.
2 In the heat of debate, please refrain from using any sort of personal attacks. This should be obvious, and this will get you docked points.
3 Please do not leave the topic, or leave your assigned side.
4 What happens in debate stays in debate. We don't want to see any of you getting catty with each other for whatever sort of battles go on in the debate post. When we leave the debate, we're all friends again!
5 Only qualified comments earn you points. A qualified comment means:
- * A point is made.
* The comment is at least five sentences long.
* The comment stays on topic and is correct according to the side you are debating.
* The comment is signed. If you accidentally forget to sign it, please delete the comment and repost it with your name and house in it. We'll be tallying the points from our shared in-box and unsigned comments are instantly disqualified. Leaving your house in a reply to your unsigned comment won't help at all.
6 Please do not plan any sort of strategies in your common rooms.
7 If you make a comment that is just so out there that it has to be deleted, expect your house to suffer from the loss of a very large amount of points.
The Slug Club, lead by professor Slughorn. Is it good? Is it bad? The members are offered special opportunities while most of them are only in it because they have important family members. Does this give them an unfair advantage? And is it right for a teacher to stimulate this kind of elitist behavior?
Worthy Addition - Slytherin and Ravenclaw
Unneeded Nuisance - Gryffindor and Hufflepuff
Debate ends tomorrow at 2PM EST, so you have 24 hours.
