Before I stumbled upon DDO two months ago, I have never been on a site where I interacted with strangers and spent a lot of time doing so. There are many sites like myspace, yahoochat, youtube comments, various blogs etc that people spend time online on. For some reason, none of them have the same allure as DDO partly because of a lack of a competitive feature like debating.

Can anyone point out if there are other sites online that are similar to DDO where there is a competitive element as well as a lot of decent people and intelligent competition? It would be nice to check it out.

Why do you think I'd want to leave? I love this site. I want more like it.

Thanks, but it is too complicated. I just went to the homepage and I have no idea what it was supposed to be.

I know right, that website looks very disorganized, although it does have a chatroom.

A chat room over here would be cool.

There is that site the ancaps ended up making or something. I don't know the address.

Just how many people here have a grudge against Sieben? His account is closed since before I joined but I read his debates a couple of days back, and they are absolutely hilarious.

Most people. I personally don't have anything against him, even though he cussed me out one time cause I voted him down. I think his debating style is hilarious and his comment wars are the funnest thing to read on the whole site.

I lol'd so many times at his comment war. Just start from the first page and read from there. (Btw, this is imo the best debate on the site)

I agree there were downsides to his being on the site as well. I just read your debate on drug legalization in Freeman's tournament and he actually gave a good RFD while cussing and critisizing both members.

Eh, my formatting in that debate during rebuttals was terribad. Makes me cringe when I read it.

You're right though, you could at least tell he read the debate.

I thought it was pretty close. I was surprised at the huge difference in scores. I couldn't tell who won. But that was probably because I knew it was already in the post-voting period and I didn't read with the intention of evaluating a winner. Interesting point though that half of the drug users are underage.

Getting this back on topic, this is the site the AnCaps created that was supposed to be like this.

http://z13.invisionfree.com...

My suspicions and others' were correct that a site with such a small membership wouldn't sustain itself. The last post made was on September 14.

You didn't realize that you'd have to debate in order to win debates? You're calling me a retard?

You sir, are a retard. Everyone else agrees with me except OreEle, who is the spokesmen for Retards Against Sieben. Why don't you and all the other Re Re's leave DDO and create your own Special Olympics style debate website?

I've never found one. The ones that are are mediocre forum boards with less intelligent members.

However, if you want a quick overview of various different debate subjects, you can look at the fairly good debatabase on this website: http://www.idebate.org...

I'm posting here not because I can answer the question but that I want the question answered.

I can sometimes find sites that are particularly good for knowledge on particular subjects. I can then find those which offer competition (say, chess.com) and have intelligent conversation. I can then find those with everything listed so far.

What I can't find anywhere else is a site that does all of this on a diverse range of subjects.
