  1. Sure I'll let you get away with that.
  2. Literally the first result for on Google for ""CCRU Writings 1997 2003" pdf" https://libcom.org/files/[Ccru,_Nick_Land]_Ccru_Writings_1997-2003(BookZZ.org).pdf
  3. Check out the buy button at the bottom of the book info. Automatically shows where to get it on amazon. (Whaaaaaaat)
  4. Hello all! We have doubled down on our efforts with Policydb8. Here is what is new: - New theme: We have made one universal theme for the site to a) establish a singular universal look for the site and b) get a sleeker appearance focused on user experience and readability. We aim to lock down this look for a long time to come and improve upon it. Our previous themes are still available with caveats: being an owner, being a moderator, or reaching a post count of 250. - Logo contest: With a new theme, we need a new logo to both revamp our look and get our users more involved with the development of the website. This logo contest will come with a $50 prize and the user's name being enshrined permanently on "Our Partners" page. Read more about it here! - Books threadstarter: We have filled a gap in our community by creating a Books and Articles forum. Even better, we have modified it with a "Threadstarter" feature that allows for users starting a thread to search for a book title and have its information (title, synopsis, related books, and where to buy) automatically published in their post. Check it out! View full article
  5. With a new look, we need a new logo! We are calling upon members of the debate community to submit their best design for a new Policydb8 logo. The winner will be selected by Rob, Chris, and myself and receive a $50 prize and have their name permanently kept on the "Our Partners" page for helping us to develop Policydb8 as the premier Policy Debate community on the web. The 3 best runner ups will have their work honored in an article and receive a 5% site coupon. This contest will end on February 28, 2019 at 11:59 pm. Results will be announced March 3, 2019. To be eligible for consideration, users must submit: a) A wordmark logo to both go on the site and work as our sharing logo. b) A brandmark logo to be used as a favicon along with other associated branding. Guidelines: - We prefer a wordmark logo as the primary site logo, however we will evaluate lettermark or combination designs if submitted. - Entrants should consider the current site appearance and color scheme in their logo design. - Be creative! Users may submit as many entries as they like within the contest timeframe. To submit, users should start a new thread in the Logo Contest forum. The settings on this forum ensure that only site owners and moderators can see new threads started so there is no concern for work being copied or stolen. By submitting an entry, users acknowledge that a) their work is their own and b) if selected, they forfeit their rights to the logos designed. Good luck to everyone, we look forward to seeing your work! View full article

  8. The latest in neocon hegemony
  9. Considering they're both alive and well, I'm not offended by a necro (*Jim Gaffigan voice* "that was dark") But yeah, being on the second one is both easier and harder, but net more demanding. Our first, Alex, has a finicky (regularly difficult) personality and basically has been that way from the get go. Byron is max chill, so we're thankful we got something of a break with him.
  10. Lol. Thoughts on how to grapple with it? https://techcrunch.com/2019/02/01/h1b-efficiency/
  11. There's always consult Ron Paul
  12. And we're back. Sorry about the brief outage (if anyone noticed). 

  13. https://www.debatemusings.org/home/in-before-you-say-something-about-ground-on-the-arms-sales-topic?fbclid=IwAR1UMFPnnp6XtgJnJy5oSEmHLUQwin9Bg68Qsc8wluKGEZm_4glU9hc4DxI
  14. Happy New Year!

  15. Yeah this is a concept we hoped to have with the chat functionality we have on the site. This needs to reach a more critical mass however. I can see why people who currently use the discord server for debates see that as sufficient, but I think video adds a great component, especially with being able to see anyone who is judging a debate. I think an interesting thing is that tabroom has semi had this idea in mind insofar as giving instructions on how to use google hangout invite links as substitutes for room assignments in tournaments, but I think they're a long way from having that function built into the site given that they aren't even mobile-enabled yet.
  16. What think of the new home page and user page?

    1. businessmonkey

      businessmonkey

      needs more monkeys

  17. I went ahead and disabled the forum feeds and created a page called "Politics News Feeds." It can be found in the menu bar under "Resources." Any preferences on keeping the forum? I'm tempted to purge it of posts and maintain it for people to share/discuss politics news.
  18. We currently have a forum of politics news feeds, seen here: https://www.policydb8.com/forums/forum/225-politics-news/. I'm considering changing this mainly because it clogs site activity feeds, however a benefit is that it stores news indefinitely. The alternative would be a page with numerous live updating politic rss feed widgets from a varying sources. It would not keep a long record of all of the news. Let us know what you think with a vote or comment other ideas!
  19. I'm willing to intervene and complete arguments based on the calibur of debate. If warrantless claims are the norm for that given debate, I'll complain about it in the post round but ultimately intervening is the only way to adjudicate the round without saying "no one said anything so presumption." Otherwise, and especially in a varsity debate, I would say no link. It's not a conceded argument if it doesn't meet the threshold of being an argument in the first place (claim-warrant-impact).
  20. I tried downloading a file in a different vdebate (that people clearly had been able to access previously) and I got the same error. Seems like a problem with attachment storage generally. I'll get on resolving this.
  21. This is a pretty great article that is highly specific on a) labor organization, b) business interests that promote open borders, and c) context with the trump admin. It's from the winter 2018 issue of American Affairs. https://americanaffairsjournal.org/2018/11/the-left-case-against-open-borders/
