We are a fast growing community -- with emphasis on growing.

We have certain attributes of a full-fledged community. We have lingo (e.g. vote bomb, DDO, &ct), and we have had more than our fair share of controversies. Additionally, we have spin-off sites, and we have stereotyped certain users.

But one thing we're missing is a rival site (e.g. Newgrounds has 4chan to bicker with). I submit that we start a rivalry with another debate site. Who's with me?

I like this idea and it could work a bit like rival soccer fans' sites whereby supporters of opposing clubs abuse each other online. In the UK, mass brawls are often arranged to settle running disputes that have developed over the Internet.

The venue is usually something like a disused industrial site located about half way between the two clubs' grounds. This is quite easily arranged in a small country like England, but not so easy when most DDO members live in such a vast country as the USA.

Or isn't that what PoeJoe had in mind?

If not, still a great idea if we can find a suitable rival site!

I debate site needs another debate site in order to have one more pointless thing to debate? Nah. Better to focus on one site to try make it economically viable. Then there would be enough money to fix bugs and make improvements.

Still, people do like to belong to groups. An alternative would be to have debate "teams" on this site, with team records kept. That would encourage team members to help each other with debate tips.

No, what this site needs last is another way to divide itself up. Team debating leads to team voting. I'm for the idea of debate site vs debate site but turning our own members against each other will lead to far too many problems. We need unity.

Here, complain about them.

Otherwise, this is pointless.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

That site is rather pathetic.

L-M:
What this site really needs is gambling.

Not a bad idea, but it might kick people like me out. Al the 11-year olds who said they were 100 would be able to gamble and I wouldn't. And then, the government would crack down on this entire website for allowing 11-year olds to gamble.

What is there to gamble about on this site anyways?

A bit of a harder challenge, I guess.

It could go one of three ways:

Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

CONVINCEME.NET!!!!! I made a thread about it in the misc section, but I would rather have it be a rival than a way of easy wins. I spotted eggleston over there as eggi. He has the same picture, i didn't cyberstalk him or anyone else on this site.

This triple post is unneccessary, but I am in the middle of accepting every open battle, (except my own from when I took that site seriously), and this is my favorite http://convinceme.net... I'm not a homophobe and I agree with the other person, but I think that this is kind of funny.
