after someone tells me WTF they are, we can chat about them.

On your profile by ELO is a number. That number starts at zero and after you finish your first debate that number will default to 2000. Every time you win a debate your number goes up, and everyone time you lose that number goes down. If you defeat members with higher ELO you get more ELO from beating them,and if you defeat members with less ELO you will get less ELO from beating them. If you instigate the debate then you get an instigator bonus, which is about 20 ELO.

ELO is a fun system, but it is important to note that ELO doesn't necessarily measure how good of a debater you are. I have an ELO of about 4300 right now but there are a lot of members like Phantom, Raisor, YYW, ect. who all have less ELO than me and are better debaters than I am.

At the expense of seeming pedantic, I'd like to note that theoretically, you can actually lose ELO by defeating another user if their ELO is low enough.

In that case, you should use your powers wisely--what shall ELO stand for? I suggest, Everyone Lives Orgasmically.

Yup. Basically what everyone above said...

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I think I've figured out a way to hack the ELO system on DDO and make mine higher.

That is not to say that I'm going to do it, so mods can relax :P

Ok I did it. I changed it back immediately though because I don't want any trouble from mods. I'll provide a screenshot to prove I did it.

It's actually pretty simple. You can do it yourself if you want. When I was a boy, I played a lot of browser games on the Internet, and I discovered this free software called "Cheat Engine". What it does is it can change the values of a specified unit. So say I am playing Tetris online and I have a score of 100. I can change that value using Cheat Engine from 100 to 1000 or any number I want.

It's the same concept here.

Here's a question concerning ELO that I hope someone can answer:

What if you're debating someone and it is your opponent's first debate and their ELO is 0?
How much ELO do you get from winning?

Hack it or abuse it? Abusing it is easy, but I think it would be highly entertaining to see someone hack it lol.
