lol, that's not a falsifiable truth statement. You'd need something like "Resolved: I should be on top."

This. Move it away from being a well-designed random forum on the internet, but to an enjoyable debating website, with all fun taking place on the forums. Occasionally is fine, but that is a site we see too often.

If not, then team debating.

Let's hear it!

I'd make it so that the DDO section of the forums wasn't constantly filled with stupid threads that are much more suitable to Personal or Miscellaneous but are posted there because they're more likely to get attention.

Lol no, that's a terrible idea. Being down rated out of ideological bias is going to get very old. Imagine someone down rating another's comment just because they don't agree with that person or because they think that person is wrong.

I'd implement a new ELO system in which substantial ELO can only be gained by defeating a debater that has the same or higher ELO than you.

That would destroy any incentive to debate somebody with a lower ELO than you, which would make it very difficult for people to debate those with higher ELO's than them.

That is a viable idea, it keeps idiots off the front page. At least there would be good debates and polls and you would not log in to see stuff like

"do you lick toes"

or

"is raping a monkey morally permissible"

on the log in page.
