Drop-down menus would be nicer if it was hover (I know that's a 10 second thing, so it's just a small thing, but it'd be really nice imo)

on the side as a permanent feature (i.e. everywhere on the site) a menu to access profile, messages, etc. like before.

A pop-up or something to say "you've got a new message" or "you've been challenged to a debate" or similar.

Official Debates.

Team Debates.

Editing posts on *some* sections in the forum

A cleaning up of the T&S to make them not a joke (i.e. in a way that, if enforced right now, 90% of people wouldn't be banned).

Ban "kfc." Also, combine the forums sections (Arts and Entertainment, Science and Technology, etc).

The message thing would already exist if the sidebar (which you suggested) was brought back.

The new chatbox icon next to the warning side (left to "Welcome_Username") seems to be working that way. Haven't received a PM since this update so I cannot confirm. Maybe someone else can.

Yes, exactly! The new chatbox icon (messages icon) will let you know when you have a new message. It will light up with the number of messages you have received. The alerts icon works the exact same way.

Thanks,

I meant like on fb you get a box in the bottom right. That'd be useful.

Also, agreed with larz's comment on larger RFDs.

Are you talking about on the dark blue bar? Because I've had multiple messages, and there's been no changes. One cannot tell at all. If the button is only visible from navigating to a different webpage, that is just as irritating as before, because all I did before (and many others I imagine) was click "debate.org" and go to look there.

Bring back the sidebar, longer RFDs. Hell, maybe you could even split each section into its own box (i.e., a field for Arguments, S/G, Conduct, etc.) and give people 500-1000 characters to detail their reasons for assigning points on a per-category basis, instead of making them write it out in one large (space-constrained) post.

Not that this is really necessary, but the "Funny" thread isn't really needed. And as far as I see it, it isn't wanted either.

1. Team debates

2. Increase RFD character limit.

3. Increase debate round character limit.

4. Ability to tag someone in a post.

5. An incentive system to increase votes and vote fairness.

Although it may be difficult to be made, but this would be really awesome to have.

Stephen,
Yes, when you receive new messages the message icon (speech bubble) -found in the dark blue header at the top of the page- will light up displaying the number of new messages. You may need to refresh your page a few times to make sure you do not have a cached version of the website. Please let us know if this is not working and we will be more than happy to investigate.

Thank you,
Suzanne

Only if it is purely cosmetic.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I would like a record of each argument that we make for Quick Debates. Like a "My Quick Debates" category showing us our arguments.

I could not agree more!

1. I think we should keep the new logo that you removed. I like the new logo and it is nice.
2. I feel there should be an easy way to know who is a moderator of the site. Perhaps we could have coloured usernames or a symbol next to your name that indicates you are an admin/moderator?
3. Instead of a white background, perhaps make it a nice light blue background?

Famer,
If you visit Opinions in the top navigation this is what members are referring to as "Quick Debates". You can read other posts as well as participate.
