We really need to do something about all of these "trash debates" clouding up the real debates. What say you?

Report them... if they are just spam they will be deleted.

That usually includes single round debates of one sentence each, ad spam debates, debates entirely FFd beyond the first round and similar. Otherwise, the quality of debate topics is entirely subjective.

I hope that helps... unless there is something else you mean by "trash debates". Do you?

I think it would be best to remove FF'd debates from the front page of voting period debates, and we should have a minimum of "likes" and "views" for debates at the top which would make (what we assume would be) higher quality debates at the top and more likely to be voted on.

Trash debate: A debate that is at least containing at least 2 of these:
*Less than 2 rounds
*A factual topic (factual debate topic)
*A forfeit
*One sentence rounds
*Dumb Topic (i.e: Muhammad wrote the Qur'an to have sex with more women)
*Numerous spelling and grammar mistakes
*Multiple copies/pastes

Yeah but there are so many of them. A rule should be made about these things, like: Do three of them and you're banned.
