Often judges have quick question for the administrators of the Debate Meet. If we could do an "online chat" with the debate administer / event organizer ... this would save a lot of running around a big high school we do not know. For example.. "my room is locked" ... "another judge is in my room" ... "another judge is judging my assignment." This would facilitate the efficient execution of the meets.
I definitely think that this would be highly effective in facilitating communication, furthermore making debate tournaments more efficient.
We've talked about a number of similar ideas before, and I think we'll probably implement something similar down the line. Agreed, it would be very helpful to have an easy way to contact the tabroom quickly!
