How do Throwdowns work?
Anyone can create a Throwdown. All it takes is a topic you feel strongly about and someone to debate it with.
- First, decide if you'll challenge a fellow Fan or leave it open for anyone on FanNation to take you on.
- Next, enter your topic. Make sure your Throwdown statement is clear and concise - a true or false type statement works best. Throwdown statements are limited to 150 characters.
- Make your case with the first of three arguments.
- Once your Throwdown has been submitted, the Fan you've challenged will receive a FanMail and has 24 hours to accept the challenge. If they choose not to accept, the Throwdown expires and does not count against either record. If it's an open Throwdown, it will remain available to other Fans for 24 hours.
- Once the Throwdown is accepted, each opponent will have 24 hours to make a their next argument.
- Other Fans can vote while the debate is in progress and they can change their vote at any time. Once each opponent has made three arguments the Throwdown is open to be voted on by all members of the Nation for another 24 hours.
- To see the status of all your Throwdowns you can go to My Throwdowns from your profile page.
