The Games of the NewburyToday 2012 Legolympiad: Jason against the Argonauts

The proposition is: Simon Kirby seems to have totally lost the plot

Arguing against the proposition is Jason, and arguing for the proposition is The Leader of the Argonauts
When the heros have completed their contest a poll will open in this thread, so please vote for the hero you feel argued their position the best. The thread will be open for comments then too, though please try not to comment until the debate has finished. Many thanks.

This exercise does seem to have filled up the forum somewhat with unanswered posts.

Perhaps it wasn't the best place to carry it out?

Why not? My only thought is that it is a bank holiday and I for one am less likely to be in a position to post or ponder the question.

Seeing as reporting them all as spam takes only a few seconds I doubt they'll be here much after Wednesday morning.

If anyone missed what the Legolympics is about, it was introduced in thie thread. It was inspired by the recently launched Newbury Debating Society that we discussed recently, and also by the Olympics - lego is Greek for "to speak" so the Logolympics is a debating contest. So that you don't vote out of preference for the forum member the six competitors are competing under psudonyms - Greek heroes in a nod towards the Greek origin of the Olympics games.

I hope you don't feel that the competition has swamped the forum. It's certainly added a few new thread but not so many that the other discussions are being bumped onto the second page.

I don't understand the problem of inboxes getting filled - are you getting notifications on new threads or something? Anywho, all the threads have been created now so there won't be any more until the closing ceromony.

Lastly: would it be OK for you not to post in the competition threads until the debates have concluded? I'd like to give the competitors a clear thread so that they just engage with each other and so that it's easy to follow their debate without interuptions and diversions. I hope you don't mind me asking, and I'd really appreciate it if you would oblige.

Thanks.

This is a forum and is not for one person to attempt to air his thinly veiled attempts to "Get at" the council, either West Berks or Town.
Actually, I don't want to post in your game but I do object to your putting up a thread and wanting to keep it to yourself. I doubt you have genuine persons taking part and that you are just talking to yourself.
If you wanted to do something like this and if you have genuine people taking part, then you should have set up a new section through the administrator which then wouldn't interfere with the day to day use of the forum as then posting could have been prevented by all but those approved.

Or better still, set up a dedicated forum.

That's an interesting theory.

That would soon become apparent. I am a part of the game and I have yet to see him posting something I have not written.

Care to bet? Put up £50 prize money, and I'll give you two-to-one if I'm lying - there are six members taking part in the contest. What do you say?

As for getting at the councils - have you actually read the propositions? Sheesh.

The offer's open to you too dannyboy: there are six members taking part in the Logolympics, and I'm hiding their identities so that voting at the end of the competition is not prejudiced and is based as much as possible on how they argued their points. Will you take the bet?

One thing that is apparent Simon, is that people seem to be confused as to what they are arguing for.

Maybe it's just a clever ruse, like reverse psychology.
