A few days ago, I looked around the forums and saw that I wasn't getting much fun from them. There wasn't anything interesting on the DDO forum, I wasn't in any mafia games, the Poltics forum was full of partisanship, the Christianity VS. Atheism--I mean Religion forum is a place I fear to tread, and the other forums are the other forums.

I sat there, bored, but then I was PM'd by Contra via the MiG tourney PM asking about LD debate, and asking to be familiarized with it. I told him it was Lincoln-Douglas debate, and that it was really fun. That sparked an idea.

The idea is that the participants don't so much boycott the forums, but to abstain from them. We (the participants) could use all the other means on DDO to communicate, but we, the willing group of people, to leave the forums alone. Then we would use all the time that they now have free from playing mafia, arguing politics, and so on, and use that time to debate. It would last a week, and then you can resume your activities on the forums.

Now, I hear you all screaming, " BUT I HAVE A MAFIA GAME TO FINISH!" or "I HAVE TO PROVE THAT GOD DOESN'T EXIST!" or "STARCRAFT JUST INSULTED ALL CONSERVATIVES!" Relax. It's voluntary. And it it doesn't start now; it starts in a week. Which gives you plenty of time to make debate arguments, finish that mafia game, argue for Atheism, and feed that troll.

You do that.

I should have expected that nobody was interested. :-(

Slightly interested, but I much prefer to argue in debates rather than the forums anyway.

You're using the DDO forums to try and organize a boycott of the DDO forums??

If you don't like the forums you're free not to participate but you shouldn't try to convince others not to use part of the site.

Fix'd? The whole point of this is to temporarily stop using the forums.

@Medic: I know I need to fast from the forums and debate more, this is just an excuse to. And some people (CP) need to make a statement and this is the perfect opportunity to.

No

I already debate more in debates than I do in the forums, so there's not much reason to sign up.
