Not dead, just uninteresting and full of unappealing clutter.

If you wanna see a website that looks like its dead, you should see the activity at edeb8.

edeb8 doesn't have activity, they are truly dead Lol.

I'd honestly say its both uninteresting and dead in our debates section. Out of all the debates in challenge period, Lannan created 30% of them, and he has 80% of total comments. I've even had a debate up for almost a day and it hasn't moved from the top of challenge board Lol

If you want to make the debate section more active again then just make a debate about religion, that's sure to rile people up.

School's starting up. Low levels of activity in the debates section are to be expected. A single high-quality debate takes several hours and roughly 2 weeks of commitment - that kind of time is scarce for students who haven't yet settled into the school year. Especially students like me who need to start working on their college application stuff.

If you want religion topics to be interesting, then you have to be creative.
We need stuff like "Is god black?" or "Is god gay?" or "Did god overcook black people?" or "If god is real, then why are there black people?"
