When instigators of a debate are asked to create a "topic", the site gives them an example, "Steve Young is a Better Quarterback Than Joe Montana". This seems to suggest that the topic should be a RESOLUTION (a belief or contention in sentential form) not simply a TOPIC. Many instigators enter a resolution, but other instigators enter a topic. I think it would be beneficial to site members if the site asked for "resolutions" instead of "topics", and I think that instigators should create resolutions instead of topics. Why? Because doing so would allow site members, when looking for an interesting debate to contend to, comment on, vote on, or simply read, to quickly scroll through the titles of debates and see what a debate is about at a moment's glance, without having to read the first round of the debate.

For example, it is more convenient and time-saving to me if I can scroll through the following titles:

Gay Marriage Should Be Legal
Capitalism Is Better Than Socialism
Abortion Lowers Crime Rates
Mit Romney Should Be President

As opposed to:

Gay Marriage
Capitalism or Socialism?
Abortion
Mitt Romney

This suggestion is intended to save time. It would also make things consistent. All debate titles would be resolutions, instead of some of them being resolutions and some of them being topics.
