Are you a "mass-debater"?
Now there is a home to test unique viewpoints in an exciting way!
As a worldwide dispute-resolver, the Urban Referee isn’t afraid to make the difficult calls and judge the winner of arguments large and small. Whether the topic is serious or light-hearted, public or private; when in doubt, our users let the Urban Ref sort it out.
Debaters will be given the opportunity to make their best case in the court of public opinion. Once the people have spoken and time has expired, the Urban Referee will make his final call and determine a winner.
UrbanRef.com lets people settle the score like never before! Participants can stack their unique perspective up against those of their peers. From serious ideas, to everyday occurrences – UrbanRef lets debaters put a voice to their side of any argument.
This is about far more than just being argumentative ... UrbanRef.com lets participants invite friends to join the discussion and vote to back up what they are mutually passionate about. Participants should watch out for “Flip-Floppers” who originally vote for an argument, only to change opinions like an election year politician. UrbanRef users are also on the lookout for Turncoats who take the contrary and vote against their friends!
When participants start a Match, they’ll lay out their best argument and then let the public (The Crowd) help decide if a given stance is the right one. The fun part is seeing how people respond and vote.
Once the game clock ticks down to zero, will participants have written and defended a winning Argument? Will their unique viewpoint stand supreme before the world? Or, will they exit the Arena with a bruised ego?
Sign up for true "social debating" on urbanref.com today. Whether the topic is political or just born out of curiosity, democracy wins!
