Hello!

Thank you to everyone for all of your feedback, comments and concerns regarding Phase One of the DDO release. We have heard your voice and are compiling your feedback.

Today, we are pushing forward with Phase Two of the release " Debate.org Opinions. The following is a screenshot of the "Opinions" landing page: http://d.pr....

As I mentioned on August 13, we are moving Juggle Debates over to Debate.org (http://www.debate.org...). The Opinions section is a feature new to DDO that serves as a form of basic, structured arguments. Utilizing the same categories that already exist in the Debates section, we will be adding new trending topics daily that will show up in the "Recent Topics" section. We invite you to voice your opinion on each, so make sure to visit "Recent Topics" daily.

Again, the rationale behind adding this new feature is to provide users a platform that is a lower level of effort than big debates but more structured than a forum. Much like Phase One, this update is also iterative, meaning we will make changes, updates and improvements based on your valuable feedback.

We will also actively monitor the adoption rate and make changes accordingly (be it an increase or decrease in daily topics, additional functionality and/or specific features). We also fully understand that this is a new feature, and it will take time to get used to.

How It Works
1.Select the topic on which you wish to voice your opinion
2.Select "Yes" or "No" to declare your stance. You will then be prompted to create a supporting headline and argument to explain your stance.
3.Your opinion will be posted to the correlating topic for the community to see.

(http://d.pr... - The previous link is a screenshot of a specific topic page. In this case, the user clicked "Voice Your Opinion" on the Con/No side. The user can now enter in his or her supporting headline/argument and click "Post Your Opinion" when ready to submit.)

Your Concerns
We understand that you have concerns with moving over the current Juggle Debates community to Debate.org. We envision Debate.org Opinions as a place for members to voice opinions daily on current and trending topics. Our goal with the move is to allow current members another avenue to voice their opinion as well as a place for new members to prepare for the big debates.

Benefits
The benefits of this new feature are many. As I mentioned earlier, these daily topics provide users with a lower level of effort than big debates but a platform more structured than a forum. It also provides another avenue for users to voice their opinions on trending topics. This feature will also help train new members on the community, proper structure for arguments and more.

I like this new feature, it may help cut down on noob sniping and raise the over all bar on actual debates. Main thing will be to inform new members about this and encourage them to start with the opinions section. Maybe an automatic message when they sign up?

And yes, please put the menu back on the side bar. Thanks.

I miss the sidebar and dropdown lists as well. This update will be quite nice though.

Thanks for the feedback. We are devising a plan surrounding the lack of the left side bar as well as allowing you to view the debating periods in a more accessible setup. We hope you enjoy the new "Opinions" section. Keep the feedback coming!

Well, maybe just make it always appear......just make it like it was pretty much. Love the new look, but keep its functionality the same.

Cool thanks, I would really appreciate the drop boxes as well, if that is at all possible.

Onto the phase two. I have been experimenting with this a bit. The opinions tab is pretty fun, though I only wish I could respond to some others, as well as being able to keep my previous opinion stated. Never the less, I do like it. Can you tell me how to make a blog just out of curiosity?

royalpaladin,
Great question. As stated, this is the first phase of the integration. We have already discussed a point system for "Opinions" surrounding "best argument" per topic. We would not interfere with the current larger debates point system.

We also understand the need for commenting within each argument. Another item is adding a "challenge user to debate" option next to each opinion which will open to a broader forum for larger debate challenges.

Keep the feedback coming.

Thanks,
Suzanne

Yes, that would be a good idea.

Is it possible to add an opinion to the opinions tab or are we stuck with what has already been given?

can we add a thumbs up, thumbs down feature for the opinion section? Without any feedback, it's almost unsatisfying, like you're talking to the air.

000ike,

Great suggestion. We have talked about this as well. We are creating a list of "Phase 2" ideas and this will certainly be added to the list for us to review.

Thanks again and keep the feedback coming.

Feedback:
1. Allow us to add questions to the 'Opinions' section along with the thumbs up, thumbs down feature.
2. Use the facebook-esque mechanism in the messages for adding recipients in the search bar, so that we can easily go to someone's profile by typing a few characters in his name.
3. Also, please bring the Google search feature back to the search bar.
4. In the forums, place the title of the each thread right-centered instead of left-centered, so that we can quickly see who created the thread and recently posted without scanning our eyes over 8 extra inches of white space.
5. Please bring back drop box features on each major tab: Debates, Opinions, Forums, People, and possible the Blog.
6. Consider allowing for more than 10 posts per forum page (25 would be a great number per page), so that forum discussions are easier to follow and be involved in.
7. Consider adding a feature like a notification when someone responds to a forum post you have created or posted in and use a "follow/unfollow post" feature like on facebook for the forums that would give us a) the ability to stay involved in forums we've posted in and b) give us the option to discontinue the notifications if the thread turns into a flame war.
8. On each profile summary, allow the option to use spacing like this:

[line of text]

[line of text]

That is one extremely lacking feature and disallows us from properly formatting our summaries; it is also a very easy feature to fix.
9. I would very much like to see a "like" function built into the forum posts, comments on debates, and as I stated prior, the opinions "arguments."

Thank you in advance for your efforts to make this site as user-friendly as possible,
