All Topics need to be framed as a question (as opposed to a statement) and end with a question mark.
All Topics must be phrased in a way that they can be agreed or disagreed with. Bad Question: Who is the best singer of all times? (Cannot be agreed or disagreed with) Good Question: Is Whitney Houston the best singer of all times?
Topics must not be phrased in an ambiguous way, e.g. negative phrasing should be avoided Bad Question: Should one not vaccinate children? (Answering it with Yes or No can be ambiguous) Good Question: Should one refuse to vaccinate their children? (Yes and No are clear)
Do not create duplicate topics. (Please first check if your topic has already been created before creating a new topic.)
All topic questions should be short and simple. (A maximum length of 100 characters)
A Point is a short sentence that makes an argumentative Point, either agreeing (arguing Yes) or disagreeing (arguing No) with the Topic question.
Points must be a maximum length of 100 characters.
An Argument is a text explaining your Point further. I.e. Here, you go into detail about the Point you made in your agreeing (arguing Yes) or disagreeing (arguing No) with the Topic question.
If you use scientific data or research in your Argument, please provide sources for that information by for example, adding a link to the information. In addition, any writing taken word for word from another source must be put in quotation marks to avoid plagiarism.
While we strongly encourage the use of references and external links to support your argument, they do not constitute an argument by themselves and must be accompanied by a written text.
Avoid heavy use of bold, italics, capitalization and underlining.
Arguments must be a maximum length of 5000 characters.
