99.99999% of the readers, debaters, and voters are English-speaking people so it will pretty much be a waste of time.

The only thing I could even hope to be proficient enough to debate in would be Spanish and even there i'm out of practice.

I assume there are similar sites if you use another region/country/language's google.

All readers and debaters speak english, otherwise they wouldn't be able to use the system, but if you have the system in English it should be really easy to replicate it in different languages increasing the amount of customers for very little effort

As someone who is fluent with Mandarin, the argument makes okay-sense. There are some awkward sentences but some are actually very well translated.

Some day in the future when we have ten times as many voters, it could be a pretty cool thing.

I asked someone to jerk off my feces in Latin on the Civfanatics forums. I still got an infraction for it (they're fascists).

How would you ensure that votebombing can be countered? There aren't many English-speaking voters, let alone people who speak other languages and care to read most non-English debates. Google Translate won't work.

I guess it could work if two people who debate in the same language agree on having one or more voters who are allowed to vote on their debate.
