I just noticed something when I looked at my profile.

The number of posts i have is equal to the number of time i have voted. But of course, now that number is messed up...

*goes off to look for a debate to vote on*

My votes vs forum posts were in a consistent ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 before I got addicted to mafia. I think I had 450 votes and 900 forum posts at one point. After I started playing mafia, it became 500 votes and over 3000 forum posts.

My posting record: 3345 posts in 5 months, so 669 posts PER MONTH. Beat that.

Also, 100 votes per month although it is declining which makes me think Ore_Ele's prediction came true.

lol. I think Votes per debate is a better way of looking at it. Someone who expects others to take the time to read their debates and give their input should do the same for others. Debating and not voting is not really contributing to the site, kind of like how someone who is on welfare and not paying taxes is not contributing to society.

I think we should all maintain a votes to debates ratio of at least 2. If you have more debates then votes, then you are on DDO welfare.

Double_R, you should play mafia. It is the most fun game I've played online. Play just once and I guarantee you, you won't stop playing.

It is so much like debating except that it is instantaneous and you won't have time to think up an argument as you could be "lynched" before you do that. Also, you get to improve your skill in arguing and finding deficiencies in logic etc.

Well mine is quite low but to be fair I only got my account confirmed after about 8 months. Also I would vote allot more if I had more time. I'm sure of it.

Just noticed you and I both have the exact same amount of wins and loses.
