Just wanted to share with everyone the fact that Debate.org recently received its 20,000th registered member, and its 10,000th completed debate. With school (and politics starting up), the next 12-months will most likely be a big year for site growth. Thanks everyone for using the site, and helping to keep it clean for all of us. ~ Phil

If you don't fix the account verification bug, this site is never going to grow that large. You're locking out 2/3 of the world.

I have contacted Phil on the issue and have been told that it will cost him money to host more phone companies.

I baleeted the email, but I don't think he specified the cost, however I do recall it being in the hundreds, which would destroy any profit that DDO has.

I don't give a f*ck about phone companies, he already has my phone company. It's the random bug that doesn't let you type in the right number of digits that's the problem.

well, whether or not I should've... I certainly laughed.

Seriously, how hard can it be to expand a box by one digit or add another one? I don't know anything about site creation, but it hardly seems like an impossible or even difficult task.

Sad thing is, out of those 20,000 members and 100,000 debates, there's maybe 50 active members and a few thousand actually worthwhile debates.

What I'm wondering is why there are double the amount of accounts as debates. If the whole purpose of this site is to debate, then shouldn't there at least be 20,000 debates (the same number of members)? That would mean each member debated only once. And since some of us have debated upwards of 100 or 200 times, then it means like only 1 out of 20 accounts -- or something like that, depending on how many debates active members have done -- actually debate. Moar proof that most accounts are/were here for v-bombing. One day I started compiling a list of the accounts that ONLY existed to v-bomb me (and did nothing else on the site) but I stopped counting at 25 lol. My favorite of them was theBwerd. Very clever!

OK, mongeese. :P

I think the majority of those accounts were simply people who came on, never debated a single time, or did anything at all. A portion might be v-bombers who attacked you, mongs, and etc., but I doubt "most" were.

ACTUALLY, if every member did one debate, there would be 10,000 debates, seeign as for one debate to exist, there needs to be two participants.

... Yeah, if they ONLY debated each other. Or rather no person debated twice.

What about Lwerd? That account voted on nearly every one of your debates.
