Is this wiki worth $30 to you? Then support it by joining the NDCA. We are an all-volunteer organization and pay for things like this wiki with membership support.

Welcome to the National Debate Coaches Association High School Public Forum Wiki

This is the main wiki page for the current high school public forum debate season.

To log in, you'll use your tabroom.com account.

From any team's page, you can save a cite entry to your "MyCites" list, which you can view with the link at left.

Not listed here and want to be? Contact us. Make sure to specify that you want to be added to the HS Public Forum wiki.

Still confused?  Try the Quick Start Guide.

Mission Statement

This wiki is an attempt to compile and share information about arguments made by high school debate teams throughout the country. The goal of this project is to democratize the process of intelligence gathering so that all high school debate teams have access to the information that has been compiled by all other squads. In this way, the wiki can both improve the quality of the information available and increase the accessibility of that information.

What To Include

When possible, complete citations should be provided. If citations are not available, basic information about the arguments made is still very helpful. For affirmatives, a summary of the plan and advantages as well as information about major 2AC add-ons or responses would be appreciated. For negatives, information about the arguments made in the 1NC as well as information about the 2NR strategies that the team has settled upon are ideal.

It is our hope that squads will contribute all of the information that they gather about other teams' arguments. Hoarding intelligence to gain a strategic advantage undermines the overall quality of the information available to all squads and is antithetical to the spirit of clash inherent in contest round debating. Democratizing the process of intelligence gathering distributes the burden onto a much greater number of people, enabling students and teachers to spend more time generating and discussing arguments and less time chasing down citations.

What Not To Include

Please treat this space with respect: do not post jokes, diatribes about disclosure, chat conversations, images, etc. and do not deface the wiki. While you might think that you are being funny, you are really just creating more work for the volunteers that manage this resource.

Opting Out

While we strongly encourage all squads to participate in this project, those that wish to "opt-out" can do so by contacting us.

How to use this Wiki

On your school's home page, you can create new teams by clicking the "Add Team" button and filing out the debaters names. Links to their respective Aff and Neg pages will be automatically created for you.

You are strongly encouraged to use wiki-syntax for your cite entries, such as that produced automatically in Verbatim. If you are pasting non-wiki data directly from Word, it will be unformatted text.

Basic guidelines for "heading" levels:
Heading 1 - Don't use, it's reserved for titles
Heading 2 - "Hat" or "Section"
Heading 3 - Block Titles/Argument Titles
Heading 4 - Tags

You can use many different types of wiki syntax to mark up your text. Most importantly, you can create headers in the wiki syntax editor by using multiple = signs.
=This would create Heading 1=
==This would create Heading 2==
===This would create Heading 3===
====This would create Heading 4====
