duni04: Can i nominate myself?

Yes, you can. Onto the tribunal or as a contestant?

PointB: I hardly frequent the culture section. I would like to grace this debate as an observer. Perhaps, it's an opportunity to learn a thing or two.

**picks a seat, and sits calmly**

Pleased to have you here. cheesy
We could definitely use your organizational skills on the tribunal.
Re: The Road To Nairaland's First Ever Cultural Debate by odumchi: 3:52pm On Nov 02, 2012
I'd like to remind everyone that you need a total of two nominations to secure your positions and so far no one has two nominations.

I would also like to ask more people for their active participation because without it this whole thing can't happen.

Please nominate these contestants/tribunal members in order to help validate their positions!

I endorse Afam4eva's self-nomination to tribunal.

As an advice, I will suggest you have at least 3 well-known Nairalanders on your tribunal and contestants. This strategy will add colour to it. There are some Nairalanders whose presence can pull crowd/curiosity/interest for the event.
Re: The Road To Nairaland's First Ever Cultural Debate by Jarus(m): 12:26pm On Nov 03, 2012
Also, I've not seen you outline the modality. Is it a cultural superiority contest? Or we just pick certain aspects of our culture and subject it to review? What exactly will the tribunal do? Whose culture?
Re: The Road To Nairaland's First Ever Cultural Debate by dubem3(m): 1:04pm On Nov 03, 2012
i equally suggest the topic be made
known well in advance to give room for preparations.

Thanks for the advice.

Jarus: Also, I've not seen you outline the modality. Is it a cultural superiority contest? Or we just pick certain aspects of our culture and subject it to review? What exactly will the tribunal do? Whose culture?

No, it's not a cultural superiority contest. It would be a debate in which a cultural topic would be presented and the two contestants would be asked to take opposing sides. For example, contestant A would say that native medicine should be commercialized while contestant B would argue against it. The person that best conveys his opinion in the most persuasive manner would be the winner (according to the decision of the tribunal).

At the end of each debate, each tribunal member would simple choose the contestant that he/she thinks did best.

dubem3: i equally suggest the topic be made
known well in advance to give room for preparations.

No problem. People should start hammering out ideas as we wait for more contestants/nominations and the 3 most popular topics will be selected.

I have a topic. I think a topic of our history first would be nice.

Would black people have made significant progress, if we took out slavery, colonialism?

Someone can word the topic better for me.

I read through the whole thread and Im wondering to myself if there s any reason why Ify is not in the panel of judges. Shouldn't her name have been the first on the list already before anyone else's? angry

Why isnt anonymous on the judges panel?
Why isnt physics on the judges panel?
Did Ileke-Idi turn down an offer to be a judge, if not why isnt she there?

Who are all these people you got on the panel what do they know about culture?

Let those people that you just mentioned come out and nominate themselves/express their interests and all else will follow.

No problem. Just have them come and accept and the changes will be reflected on the board.

What is the favor?
