A little while ago, DDO members lost use of the news and information website, DebateFans.com, which was managed by former member, PoeJoe.

But, several members of DDO have come together to bring back this important website with accessibility and relevance in mind.

Thanks in great part to the web hosting capabilities of Som31John (http://www.debate.org...), DDOFans.com (http://ddofans.com...) has been launched to service DDO members with up-to-date news, information and advice aimed to help members learn about and contribute to the DDO community.

All DDO members are invited to see, talk and discuss the website both here in the forums and on DDOFans itself - no registration needed!

For more information, please direct comments and questions, as well as any articles or ideas you have to either myself (http://www.debate.org...), I-am-a-panda (http://www.debate.org...), JBlake (http://www.debate.org...) or KRFournier (http://www.debate.org...). We're here to serve the members of DDO!

Wow, that looks like a swell website. From what I hear from my best friend and endorser of DDOfans, Abraham Lincoln, he says here will be cool features such as DebateRate, where you can rate different debates based on different things, and monthly issue opinions from the cool, handsome authors there.

My room-mate and funder the website, Chris Brown, has said he looks forward to a Wiki dedicated to DDO.

Man, my good buddy, George Washington, has said instead of watching sports he will devote all of his time to here.

So, yes, it ,looks good.

Excuse me, but my good chum Winston Churchill pointed out a signature error I should fix.

I have heard from reliable sources that Adolf Hitler plans to install Weekly Polls on DDOFans.

Of this new site, George Bush was quoted saying, "This is a site that will likely be misunderestimated." He then urged the people to support Obama's new stimulus package.

However, Rush Limbaugh had a different opinion. He believed that this site would be limited by the lack of participation. Prove him wrong!
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

Congratulations on the new site guys. I look forward to seeing it develop further.

Thanks Brian. We hope to have the entire thing fleshed out soon! Be sure to contribute to any discussion on DDOFans too; the more people contributing, the better the site will be!

So if i donate, is it towards DDO or DDOfans?

DDOfans. A website ain't free. It's all transparent though. All donations and costs are listed on the donations page.

I created the first wiki page.

+5 cool points.

Yes that is cool, how did you do that?

You can create any article you want on the Wikia, Brian. For instance, type in "brian_eggleston" in the search box on the page, and it come up with no article, but there will be a link saying "You can create this page." Click on that, and then you can create your own little article.

For major things, I recommended using the Wikipedia sandbox to fool around, as that is how I learned. But otherwise, type in a blurb and thats it. We moderate it though.

So, who gets to post on DDOF?
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

Anyone that wants to. If you have an article idea, or a news article. Send it to JBlake, Panda, Volkov, or wjmelements. We will post it and give full credit to the writer. If need be we will correct grammar/flow issues (likely unecessary for you, Rezz) and filter out only very abusive articles.

Such as, everybody putting certain information, such as description of ideology, reputation, tournament history, etc., in a certain, universal format, for ease of understanding.

That would be a good idea for DDO, but I don't think it would be good on DDOF. This is because members would have to sign up for such privileges, and I don't know if there is any point in doing that; keep it semi-anonymous and let anyone comment anywhere.

But as I said, good idea for DDO.

On that note, I would like to announce to the loving community that I am in the process of writing a six-book series of original and personal philosophy.

Would the ddofan website consider electing an opinion page for parts of my writings a la J.S. Mill's "Utilitarianism"?
