Wel maybe. But more to the point maybe this theme would end up as graybeard-only which wasn't my intent (but that was great addition to the previous memoirs Dave!) - I was thinking entries would be as much about judicial procedure as the actual arguments, e.g. "your honor, the next

Well, having been there when it happened, after giving all you kids a moment to appreciate the grey in my beard, here's what happened: (1) FRC began as a discussion within NW towards creating a bounded, "playable" rule set, and has had a continuous monotonically increasing round number since

Excuse me if I'm wrong because Agora is older than I am, but to me it seems that the whole "Agora vs. FRC" debate is more of an in-joke between the two groups than an actual serious debate. Saying that one is more worthy than another is an impossible task since both of them are different in

I'd tend to give yourself a bit more discussion to render things invalid, such as if they're off theme or too hard but not impossible. Also, keep in mind that you're not going to be able to do this until the new contracts pass. Oh, and I'd appreciate a pledge not to maliciously amend or
