Can you please get the forums on Tapatalk 2? It's an app that's already made, you just need to submit it,, and DDO users will be able to have mobile app integration for forums.

Robert - thanks for the suggestion. Tapatalk is a great application. While on the surface it appears that the app should transfer easily to DDO, the forums on Debate.org are custom built. They do not sit on any of the forum software listed on Tapatalk's site that would allow for a seamless integration. http://www.tapatalk.com...

As a result, creating a "forum app" is not as simple as activating it on Tapatalk. It would require a fully custom-built application.

Over the next couple of months our focus will be on creating a mobile-friendly version of Debate.org. We recognize that more and more of our users want a good mobile experience. We hope to have some new developments to roll out in the next couple of months.

Is there any way you could try to prioritize designing a mobile app? If you have a mobile app with offline usability (save debate functions), I think you're going to see a huge user numbers increase, more regular users, more voting, etc.

A mobile app is definitely on our radar. In the coming weeks we will be soliciting feedback from members to help determine what are the most important functions of DDO that could be housed in a mobile app.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you. If this is a focus group type of thing, I'd love to be involved.

Both. When I'm looking for debates to vote on, it sucks pretty hardcore when I can pick ten debates at random and only two of them were fully completed by both sides.

Yes, it may be frustrating for the reader, but when a contender puts in ample amounts of work to finish a debate and his opponent forfeits due to not being able to contend or whatever reason, it is a little unfair to the contender who didn't forfeit for his debate to go into the un-noticed section where he can't receive any votes for his part of the debate.

That's what the unvoted forum is for.

That's my point, a new member is not familiar with the un-voted forum and may miss the opportunity to get the votes they deserve. I myself experienced this problem, the debate ended in a tie with no votes.

Easy fix: if a debate has forfeits, have a pop-up link asking if you want to post it in the thread. Not difficult, and makes it a hell of a lot cleaner on the voting periods debate page.
