Good evening DDOers,

Based on your feedback in forum thread: http://debate.org..., we understand the need to include dropdowns for the main pages within the site. We also understand the need for a simple way to view your messages in real time (removal of left rail). We apologize for not including these features within the release.

The first request we would like to address is the drop down features. We will be creating a new topic to discuss the second request.

Below are the drop down feature we are interested in adding to the top navigation for Debates, Opinions and Forums.

We encourage you to share your thoughts and feedback with us. Our goal is to provide you with the features needed to navigate Debate.org with ease. We look forward to your feedback.

Alright, instead of just jumping right in with demands, I'm going to say thank you guys (Juggle) very much for your hard work in trying to make this site easy to use and navigate. What you are doing is improving Debate.org greatly.

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. 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. -FIXING
6. Please allow 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,
WSA

One thing we would really like, that I'm not sure has been discussed, is the ability it edit your posts. Also, when you do this, if you could make it so the thread creator can turn this off, for forum games and such, that would rock.

And sidebar.....sidebar sidebar sidebar. Want it back. It was my friend.

Thank you for your feedback. We have added your requests in for review.

Thank you very much. The editing of posts (as Oberherr has stated) would be very useful, and would cut down one step of posting: the review phase.

I kinda like the forced review, but an option to just immediately post would be cool too.

When you do a Google search add "site:debate.org" to the end of the search string.

The previous drop-down selections should be restored. The selections under People should be restored as well.

It's always been difficult to find help, the FAQ, the TOS, and contact us. It would be good to put them in a help drop down somewhere in the header.

Thanks juggle!

@wallstreet

I think more than 10 posts per page is a bad idea. It'a much easier to find things this way.

I'd personally like Challenge (X) where X is the number of debates that are open (the rest don't need it).

Thanks everyone for your feedback. We certainly want to get a release out as quickly as we can that includes the the main drop downs that are missing. Based on the majority of the feedback we will be moving forward with the previously suggested drop down features (listed below).

We have also taken note on the feature requests forOpinions and Forums such as as the comment from Stephen_Hawkins regarding adding an "X" representing the number of debates that are open, as well as Ore_Ele's comments regarding additional features on Opinions and Forums.

As we continue to grow the site we will refer to requests made to bring the community the features that are most beneficial to you.
