Whats your thoughts

And actually if you are pro edb8, i'm up for doing a debate on this. Been wanting to for a while

Better in terms of what?

Edeb8 has some wonderful features -- things I wish DDO had -- and I know that Larz put a lot of time and effort into it, but the user base and activity here is much more extensive, which obviously makes me lean DDO. That could change in the future, surely, but for now I think it's almost unequivocal.

DDO is far and away the better site, mainly due to its user base. I also likes its visual aesthetics more, but that's less of an issue.

Which site has aired more episodes of the Weekly Stupid? Whichever one that is, I vote for that one

It depends on the standard being utilized...
In terms of features and how easy it is to make changes happen, EDeb8 wins hands down. User-friendliness is kinda subjective, and it honestly just depends on what you're used to, so that can't serve as an objective criterion. In terms of active membership, DDO obviously wins, and from that stems everything else going for DDO (quality of its best debates, skill level of its best debaters, social aspect, etc).
In other words, if a significant number of DDOians were to move to EDeb8 and use it for a few months, DDO would no longer be able to compare to EDeb8. But... actually having an active member-base is the most important thing for any social media-type site, and since DDO is currently the one with the (almost infinitely) greater amount of active membership, DDO is better, in practicality.
