in theory to be used to allow two persons to have a live public debate, im sure though
that some interesting and amusing fights would also insue


Well I think that it could basically be the equivalent of a Public  Kupi-Chat kind of a
set up.

So there would be the Kupika Kage, where only 2 people could occupy the "spots" and be
able to chat at any given time. (much like one does on their Kupi-Chat)

But it would be public so that anyone could click on and follow the convo but would not be
able to contribute themselves (unlike in Fleeting Thoughts). 

A link to the Kupika Kage would be on the home page. (it would be great if there was a way
to either designate a topic or replicate the last line in the chat so that we could follow
the debate/fight from the home page)

Either person could "tag-out" to anyone else in the room but if they resigned then the
spot or spots would be open to be occupied by two others. A time limitation or some
posting limitation might be necessary, long enough to allow two people to engage in a full
debate but not so long that they can hog the Kage all day long.

who likes this and how hard would it be Hina?

sounds fun and interesting to me....

As much as I love alliteration, Kupika Kage gives me the feeling of children spelling
things wrong and with backwards letters.
Then again, it would be full of children spelling things wrong whilst throwing supposedly
offensive messages round, so.. :| 
Perfect name, really.
Huge & unnecessary signature gap is huge & unnecessary. :3

technically Kupika Cage (match) is alliterative also. i just like to use the K in a lot
of my things, like clubs and so on on Kupika as an homage to Kupika

the Kupika Platform or anything like that would work too.

it would be trickier to create but it would be really fun if the "audience" could give a
temporary point to either side during such a debate and it showed up in the room....or
like the "gong show" if a person got a certain number of negative marks like say 20 during
a debate they would be kicked from the platform...and deemed the loser

well hopefully the debate standards would come to be raised...i for one love a lively
well articulated debate

but its probably too much trouble to implement and Hina being averse to conflict probably
wouldnt go for it anyways

That sounds like a wonderful idea.
Seeing a decent debate would be great, as the only thing our debate teacher in my school
lets us debate is like, Cats vs. Dogs, and stuff like that.

this is an aside:

but i saw the documentary Resolved the other week....and omg i had no idea
that debating was like that these days...i mean the style of pretty much speaking as many
words as fast as you can within your allotted time and so on....

it was really fascinating.....but i have to say that im disappointed that debating has
turned into that..

Well Oroborus21 (Eddie) I think that it is a great idea and Hina should really consider
it! I hope it comes out!
