We have finally released the new sub-section here. Since it was based on your suggestions, we feel that your input is essential on improving said section, then anything related to the Battle Colosseum is welcomed here too! Let us know what you think!
Missiles of ligneous or petrous consistency have the potential of fracturing my osseous structure, but appellations will remain sempiternally innocuous.

May you please establish the Battle Colosseum by posting a thread introducing the sub-section to all of NB. I believe many members are unaware of this section which is why it would be beneficial to make an official announcement regarding it.

I have an idea regarding the Battle Colosseum sub-section.

As we can see, it didn't receive the anticipated reception that we thought it would because no one is actually posting any match-ups there, so I was wondering, how about we have you guys (the Mods and GMs) post like 2 or so match-ups there every week, so that it is kept active. Also, how about we add something like the best debater of the month, where - as the title states - the Mods declare the debater with the best arguments in the match-ups posted throughout the month and some sort of prize is given to them to hold for a month and then is taken away if said debater loses that title next month or even something like a hall of fame. This is more like an open tournament, where anybody could join and anybody could be the best debater of the month.

And since the debate is going to be watched over by a Mod or a GM (since he/she created it), the debaters will know that at some point a winner is going to be announced and so they won't leave the debate mid-way (something that really bugs me when debating in BD) and that prize is just to keep the enthusiasm for debating present, as one will know that he/she won't be wasting time on nothing.

Great suggestion, hopefully it gets the attention it deserves.

Message me if you want to know the secrets of the universe. Mods signing sigs is a real thing? Just assumed people put the stuff there themselves.

Thanks, I was getting depressed, have you ever seen an idea that doesn't get neither support nor hate for half a month??

@Red_Sharingan
I can post match ups there.

As for your other suggestion, thats not going to work. Whoever "we" choose is always debatable as to the credibility of whoever we chose.

I was just trying to come up with an incentive that would make any active BD debater want to go to the Battle Colosseum section and debate there, because as you may have seen, most active debaters here have already gotten used to the 3-word reply of any member, who simply come to just state who he/she thinks wins without stating the reason, by simply ignoring them, and that now made the Battle Colosseum section no different than the main section in any way + This is just a basic idea which is subject to change if people actually try to alter it a bit to make it better, I understand that what I'm saying is a lot of work for you guys (The mods), so I just had another idea.
First of all, the mods (who I know of) who are always here checking this section, are you and Akatsuki975. I don't know, or rather, I haven't seen any other mod as active as you guys in this section (I haven't been here long enough, sorry for not knowing the others), and I think that (and I'm hoping to be speaking in the name of every active debater here) you guys are pretty dependable, so we can trust your judgement of a certain debate. But only two can't do it, so I wanted to suggest that certain members, who are known to be good debaters here and aren't debating in the debate in question, are to be chosen by you to help you reach a final decision on who is the winner in the debate in question.
This will be the same as the judging system for Creed's tournament, where the winner is the one who gets the majority of the votes of the judges.

As I said this is just a basic idea, I would like to know what do you think are the deficiencies in this basic idea and maybe we could reach a point where it is possible to do it.

I hope that I understood and replied to your comment the right way, because I didn't actually get what you meant the first time I read it...

We are currently going at at it, trying to come up with a solution, something members can enjoy and take part in. There is one such idea employing moderators in the judging panel. Not exactly what you are suggesting Red_Sharingan, but something along the lines.

Ideas are always appreciated, and you can look forward to it, which will hopefully be very soon.
