How about incentives for creating debates?

There is very little debates to be selected to debate. A lot of times those little debates that exists are only debates that have being there for so long, and no one wants to take it.

If it is possible, it be nice if a person who have a lot of imagination could create a bunch of debates, but not sit as PRO or CON, and just leave for the taken. This could be a privilege gained by members who shows they are good at creating good debate topics.

Sometimes I want to debate, can't think of anything concrete to create a debate, and feel disappointed because there is about a hand full or less of debates available to be taken.

Another idea. Set timer for debate to be accepted, after timer goes out anyone can accept. While timer is running, you can put yourself in the list of acceptions. Whoever created the debate can remove/reject acceptions, the person who accept may also remove themselv while timer is on. In the end, if there is anyone in the list, the one who first click accept and still in the list takes the debate, if there is no one, then whoever show up first take the debate, like always.

This would incentive users to be on the debate main page, and maybe even incentive voting as they wait to see the timer running out. At the same time, there should be more debates for the taken.

Starting debates isnt an issue on DDO, hell it used to be that if there were 3 open debates, it would be a miracle of God. Now anytime you go into the challenge section you see anywhere from 5 to 10 debates just waiting to be taken.

You have it pretty easy

I don't think offering a prostitute per open debate is a good idea... But then again... if I came up with it it must be :/

If people want to debate, they can start the debate themselves. If not, then they just don't want to debate.

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..."

That could rush people from taking the debates, making the debates less productive. I have done that, and so have someone done to a debate I created.

And those are usually debates that no one wants to take it, so is like having no debates at all.

The last option makes noon snipping very easy. It would be annoying if I kept trying to accept debates but people were rejecting me simply because they'd rather debate a noob.

I was simply proposing ideas, and created the thread with hope of any other ideas to be shared.

A system put in place can only do so much. The problem is usually with the people, not the system.
