this may sound funny, even ridiculous :D but, what will you think about if site requires a person IQ test who wants to be a member? do you think site needs to do it? if a person who wants to sign up fails to reach specified IQ point then he will not be accepted to the site.

about us, we have already signed up, to go on using, we also need to pass that test, if we fail our users will be banned temprorarily, till the time we can reach that level.

this will kep the quality of site, I think.

but, it may prevent those who wants to increase it by attending us...

This is a really great idea, can anyone think of other criteria we can use to keep DDO pure?

I also don't think existing members should be excluded- we should purge anyone who is inferior to the true DDO members, or at least make a badge appear next to their user name so we know to avoid them.

I like the idea of letting them in, but putting a badge beside their name.

We could also have cute little pink triangle badges beside homosexual members, like they were doing in Germany that one time! You know the ones!

Shall I put a badge beside yours? I'd be happy to oblige.

IQ dictates how knowledge you have

DDO doesn't care about how much knowledge you have.

DDO cares about how wise you are.

Sadly, wisdom cannot be determined by a silly IQ test.

There are other sites for this that I can think of. As you can see DDO is not a very serious place. It can be but it is a place for various types of people. It doesn't demand people to be intelligent or serious.

You should consider starting your own debate website with IQ registration.
"Don't click on my profile. Don't send me friend requests. Don't read my debates. There are many interesting people on DDO. Find one of them. Go find someone exciting and loquacious. Go click on their profile. Go send them friend requests. Go read their debates. Leave me alone." -Tophatdoc

Yep. I could have worded it differently but whatever.

Technically it depends on what you're arguing I guess. However, I do agree with your whole "just don't post bullsh*t" point.

DDO cares about how wise you are.

Precision matters.

If you're trolling the misc section, I don't think many are concerned about the extent to which you're familiar with European History through the ages, or the latest String Theory development. But, if you're (not you, specifically, but "you" in the general sense of all those who might fit this category) posting about politics, political philosophy, and the like, and you have no idea what you're talking about, then you're better off taking a walk in traffic.

But you, Crypto, don't need to take a walk in traffic.

DDO cares about how wise you are.

I've come to find that people with high IQs are just as likely to be stupid.. If not more likely because they think having that high IQ makes them de facto right about everything.

Screw IQ, just make everyone take the LSAT. http://www.lsac.org...

It's a really good test of someone's logical reasoning ability. You have to score better than 150 to join and 160 to vote.

I will give a gold star to anyone who actually takes it and reports their results.

Unless DDO makes their own IQ test they would have to use one that's already out there. Then many people would just google the correct answer to score higher.

I think it's a good idea to have an IQ registration, but I think on some debates, EQ would be more important. But EQ is hard to examine and determine.

I don't think people should be banned for having a low IQ, but there should be a label of some sort classifying people with low IQs.

IQ doesn't determine intelligence. People usually equate it with intelligence, but it's not really the same. So it's not really that good of an idea. Sorry.
