Hello everyone,

Today we are going to launch a new update to the site that will contain the following feature enhancements.

-Activity Level Requirement for Voting – Phone verification for voting will remain intact as step 1 of the verification process. Members will now also have to complete 3 debates prior to being granted the ability to vote on debates. (Complete being "Voting Period" or beyond)

-Removed the Ability to Vote on Your Own Debates – For all future debates started after this release, any member participating in a particular debate will not have the ability to vote on that debate.

-Reason For Decision Requirement on Debate Setup – Members will now have the ability to make the "reason for decision" comment a requirement upon setting up a debate. It is now included as one of the debate settings.

-New Right Rail Design & Search Bar – Revamped the design of the right hand navigation and the search box for improved usability.

-Third Party Moderation – All reported items will now flow through a third party moderation system described in this post - http://www.debate.org... The ToS will remain intact as is since no consensus on changes has yet been reached by the community.

The release is scheduled to go out at 4:30pm CST. We expect no more than 15 minutes of downtime with this release. If you are attempting to use the site between 4:15-4:45pm CST, expect to experience issues as it is likely the release will be updating the site at that time.

Since this release does involve some design changes – upon logging in after the release, please clear your browser cache in order to get the most up to date version of the design & CSS.

I will update this thread when the release has been fully installed at which point I will provide a new thread for members to report any issues they experience.

Thanks,
Julia

This is freaking sick (awesome)

Good job juggle the site is sooo much faster and the sidebar is visually appealing. Also the RFD setting and moderation is tops!
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Well, I'll be the party pooper.

I have to say that I think the removal of a lot of color, kind of makes the site feel colder.

But that is just me.

Wow, this is cool. As said before, the lack of color on the sidebar will take getting used to, but overall, this is just plain awesome.

Request: Can you (in the boxes below the actual debate where it shows:

Add a box that says Mandatory RFD with an answer of (Yes/No)?

This way people who accept the debates will know if it is a debate that requires RFDs

I'd prefer to have "Remember Me" above the Login button on the left panel than below. I believe it makes more sense to have the entire form above the submit button.

So completely random and unnecessary but i would kinda like profiles to say the amount of years and months youve been a member rather than just years.
Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

Perhaps this is the right place to say this, perhaps not: I'm unable to confirm my cellphone number since my carrier (Swisscom, the largest carrier in Switzerland) isn't listed. What can I do?

Find a friend on facebook that has a US cell phone. I believe that ONLY US cell phones are accepted (though there might be one or two UK ones).

Nah, Canadians are okay but if you're outside North America then the only way is to get someone to supply you with a number and then send you the code. You can still debate though, you only need to confirm to vote.

I'd just like to point out how great of a job these updates have been. Since their arrival the amount of unwarranted straight seven votes I have seen has dropped at least 95 percent. There's less votes overall then there used to be, but hey, quality over quantity.

I can't umlaut in profile comments. It gives something that looks like A1/4 but really funky. I don't always use it for swearing by the way. I tried to say über and it got fücked up.
