Hello Wallstreetatheist,

My name's Mario, and I'm a long-time lurker of DDO who's setting out to make a more robust debate website. Over the years, I've seen DDO flood with trolls and commenters who can't be above the age of 13, which has a deleterious effect on discussion/debate quality. Accordingly, my goal is to make a new website that prioritizes meaningful discussion and interesting debates over the bric-a-brac that characterizes most of this website these days. If you'd like to see my website, by all means message me and I'll send you a link - however, I'm not writing to you to advertise my site, but to ask about your experience with DDO. Namely, I'd be greatly indebted if you could answer any of the following:

1. What do you like about DDO?
2. What don't you like about DDO?
3. What functionality do you want DDO would support that it currently doesn't?

If you'd like to answer these questions, OR if you'd like to be a beta tester for my new site, message me here or email me at clusory(at)gmail.com and I'll get back to you immediately. Thanks!

Mario

Probably not.
We, homo sapiens of the planet Earth, are the people of Debate.org, an online debating website owned by Juggle, and will aspire to increase the quality of debates, polls, mafia on said website, to be sufficient, meeting high standards of success and satisfaction in all areas, to consider it as "great", or superb and spectacular, again for the first time in years

You think? I just checked out that website and noticed it only has 164 completed debates. And the format of DDO is a lot better.

Dude, I got the same PM too. And practically none of it fits. Heck, nowadays I rarely even lurk on DDO. I literally only checked in today because of that PM. The last time I even looked at the site was for the election.

Also -- I hope this site gets made; more competition for the WODC! :D

Start-up debate site trying to beat DDO. DDO dominates the online debate culture, which is sad since no competition means no incentive to improve. :(

I was only expressing my astonishment at how old I've gotten. I feel like I was 13 yesterday, but now I'm 18. I'm graduating and going to college. Gonna live by myself for the first time. It feels so weird.

I could have done it at 16. Living alone and taking care of yourself really isn't that hard. Often times when I've gone to boarding school, I would find it easier to live than with my parents. You just have to know how to cook basic stuff, wash your clothes, and pay bills and stuff.

Try cooking. It's actually fun. You don't have to be a gourmet chef or anything, but being able to provide food for yourself is useful. 13 is a good age to start learning.

To wash clothes, you just dump clothes in a washing machine, which is pretty much what you do with a basket anyway. I always handwash my socks and underwear though.

I'll just stock up on microwavable food.

Now I just need to know how to use a microwave...hmm...

I kid, I kid. I'm not that retarded. LOL

I was slightly exaggerating. I did wash my own clothes at summer camp (borrowed one of my friends' detergent) once. Then again, someone took off with it and I had to chase him down for 15 minutes. >.>

Ok then...what defines an appropriate response? You said it's a better version of DDO, so perhaps it'd be preferable for you to leave for edeb8, going by what you said...

Wow... The format for debates at clusory sucks.

Each point has to be 280 characters or less? That is the rule I find most laughable.
