Every time I log in it seems the main page, not the dashboard but the main home screen that any visitor can see, is filled with absolute garbage.

Today it's "Should I kill my grandpa?", yesterday it was some horrible misspelled poll about how god is evil.

Another lovely poll on the home page is "Jebus Crist" -> Funny ... because that's some how hilarious.

It's absolute garbage. If this is the first impression people are getting when they come to the site I am ashamed.

Someone needs to select what gets put on the home page to make a good first impression. Ironically, the opinions and polls are the source of most of the absolute crap that is getting displayed and those sections were created to bring in viewers.

Clean up your page DDO, its embarrassing.

Ye I found that one really funny lol. Its an honest question though.

What's wrong with people trying to have a little fun? All the bad polls get removed anyway.

DDO will survive. The moderators do clean up DDO, but not within 5 seconds of a bad opinion/poll.

It's just annoying. Every day I log in to see juvenile, stupid crap instead of clever stuff.

What do you define as clever stuff?

Of course. Instead of going by comments, put the debates with the most likes on the main page. So a debate with a rating of +10 but only 5 comments goes on the homepage instead of a debate with a rating of -10 but 20 comments.

I agree and further more state that the whole site is doing itself an injustice to what the actual potential to such a site could be.

Like people actually voicing their arguments and actually getting fair votes, instead of being outvoted by alter accounts or friends who always agree with friends.

We're trying to push for a one-person-one-vote policy for voting to alleviate that as well.

But wouldn't we run the risk of having only troll debates that receive tons of Likes over things that are: "Clever"?

Do troll debates really get that many likes? And if they do they're usually pretty funny or between well known debaters.

Not for a long time. The problem is this isn't likely to go away; not what's on the homepage but the low quality postings in general. The opinions and polls section are the cause of all the trash but those sections bring in most of the traffic. DDO has way more people and Facebook likes than when those sections weren't here. Which means Juggle are never going to get rid of them.

Not that Juggle cares about Facebook likes lol. I'm just using that to demonstrate how much more popular this site has become. We had less than 1k not too long ago. Now we have 7k.

Which in turn turns into a feedback loop. Opinion and Polls sections get more traffic. More traffic means more users. More users means more potential for garbage. Garbage scares away potential good users but promotes trolls.

As long as these things are in place in the current form the number of good users joining the site is bound to decrease in the name of page views. The number of idiots, trolls and bogus accounts will continue to increase until the site is choked to death.

Then we'll all have to flee to Edeb8.

Which means Juggle are never going to get rid of them.

Which in turn turns into a feedback loop. Opinion and Polls sections get more traffic. More traffic means more users. More users means more potential for garbage. Garbage scares away potential good users but promotes trolls.

As long as these things are in place in the current form the number of good users joining the site is bound to decrease in the name of page views. The number of idiots, trolls and bogus accounts will continue to increase until the site is choked to death.

So morbid. You'll start a panic.


Then we'll all have to flee to Edeb8.

What's Edeb8?

The site Larz created after his presidential run failure. He claims it's DDO but better. However, the site lacks a user base and I find it much less user friendly than DDO.

I'll have to check it out.

Go for it, let us know what you think!

Probably the best attempt at making a site I've seen from users here. It doesn't seem to have died at least and it looks like it has some advantages over DDO. All the debates I saw were fails and the I agree it's less user friendly. I might join but I don't even spend much time on here so I don't see the point.

Amen. Clean up your act DDO. I'm ashamed.

Things have been worse.

Not for a long time. The problem is this isn't likely to go away; not what's on the homepage but the low quality postings in general. The opinions and polls section are the cause of all the trash but those sections bring in most of the traffic. DDO has way more people and Facebook likes than when those sections weren't here. Which means Juggle are never going to get rid of them.

Which in turn turns into a feedback loop. Opinion and Polls sections get more traffic. More traffic means more users. More users means more potential for garbage. Garbage scares away potential good users but promotes trolls.

That's how I feel as well.
