Should Debate.org require three debates just to comment and vote?
Debate Rounds (1)
Now, as it would appear, in order to vote on a debate, a user is required to complete three debates, as well as give a phone number confirmation, which I supposed is to help prevent against users making second accounts to help them win (which is unfair). While I believe that the phone number should not be necessary, I do believe that completing three debates is a reasonable requirement in order to vote. It helps refrain members from making second accounts purely to vote for themselves, because they have to complete three debates prior to doing so, which makes it more of a committed effort.
Not to mention that a user could use the experience they receive in a debate to judge and vote on other debates. They will receive an idea of what a debate looks like and how it should be structured, plus they can read votes they receive on their own debates to get an idea of what they should be looking at when they judge a debate.
