New developments hopefully coming up soon. Just wanted to ask: what do people actually want up next?
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.

I would at least like an explanation as to why we can't edit our own posts.

Or, please -- just let us edit our own posts.

ELO and Team Debates :D

We should have two leader boards:

1. Elo
2. Normal

So it's ... I dunno I kinda want both.

And team debates OPTION all the way. How would it work btw?

Idk. The normal leaderboard promotes noob sniping and debate stacking. But we will see what the admins decide on that.

And team debates will probably be a 2vs2 system with opening (partner 1), rebuttal (partner 2), rebuttal #2 (partner 1), closing/voters (partner 1). At least thats how I would conceive of it.

this site's about arguments...

You're already a weasel when it comes to trying to squirm to defend your saying silly things..

At least how it is now the weasels can be quoted.

If you would say something different.. clarify...
I don't see the problem.

Other than calling Ren a weasel lol this. It would be too easy to change something you said to make yourself look better (and I mean "you" in the general sense).

If anyone actually wants to do a team debate / BP debate, me and larz had a system set up in which it can actually occur and occur properly.
