I thought that this would be a slightly interesting topic because I was slightly curious how people first came across DDO and why they decided to join. Please comment your story!

I wanted to create a website like DDO, and during my research I found it.

Doing a Social Studies project at school on the Minimum wage, while I was researching I came across a debate on it. After searching through the site, I found a debate on the existence of God, at the time, I had not come out of the closet about being an atheist to anyone yet. When I got home I created an account and started debating the existence of god, this built up my confidence to finally come out about it at school and I am forever thankful to the site for that. Now I just do it for fun and to boost my intellectual level.

Same as you. I Googled "debate" when I was 11, answered some opinions without an account. I got to join only 2 years later. I joined because I re-Googled "debate" as I was participating in the formal debate competition in my school.

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.

My brother told me about it.

=
Donald invictus, deliver and be tart and huge by narrow.
=
Invincible Donald, liberate and rule fierce and mighty, honor through difficulty.

We were doing a project in English where you and a partner had to write an argument about a controversial topic and present it to the class. My partner and I could not agree on a topic so we went to Google to find some debatable topics, and I found this site.

I was on this discussion group on facebook, and one of the members mentioned having a debate on this site. I checked it out, thought it could be a lot of fun, and joined.

My debate club teacher was like: "Hey go to Debate.org its k"

I did.

Incredible story I know. I really do like the community on this site as opposed to edeb8 and all the other tryhards. DDO is the best :)

I first came across an opinion topic on Debate.org while searching about evolution vs creationism.
