These are more like suggestions than anything, so please don't get angry! 🙂
I will be asking the candidates to basically follow a posting order of waiting to be asked a question and then posting when they have been asked. This isn't to say that they can't interject if they wish to, but the person being asked the question shouldn't feel they have to wait for everyone on stage, in the crowd, and on the panel to make some sort of post before they are allowed to answer the question.
Those on the panel asking the questions will most likely be asking questions semi-randomly of candidates, while there will probably be no particular candidate questioning order, the panel will probably go 'round robin' amongst themselves.
I don't want to stifle anyone's creative freedom and so forth, but would like to remind everyone that this is not a typical RP event, it is one very much that by it's nature focuses on dialog and primarily dialog between candidates and panelists. In that light, nobody at all will have a dim view of anyone who cuts their posts down to very short posts like *claps* or *cheers* or *boos* and/or short bursts of dialog. In fact it will be looked upon gratefully. As a member of the audience at such an event, the spotlight really isn't on you anyway, so if I don't see how the reflection off the stage puts a sparkle in your eye while you boo the candidates roundly, well, I won't mind....a simple /me boos! will suffice really. 😉 But regardless, please realize that you are not really going to be in any given explicit "posting order" as members of the audience at this event, so please don't expect people to play in that framework.
Finally! As this is a Daily hosted event, there is absolutely no expectation of privacy or censorship here. If you attend, come what may, you are, by attending, giving your permission to have anything you say or that is said about you, and any pictures taken at the event to be used in the paper for a story about the debate.
