Look at the debates in the voting section. No offense, but they are bad. All troll debates. We shouldn't have these debates. The debate quality is going down in this site. I don't think there will be any new good members in the site anymore.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

What do you expect when the long term members on this site don't debate and don't initiate quality debates. People emulate what they see.

And yet there is one campaign whose main purpose is to reduce politics and actually tries to encourage debating - the one that the other campaigns are attempting to leave out of the debate.

Coincidence? We are creating our own doom and just continue down the path.

I'm a new member and have yet too see a debate that I am willing to take part in plus I am not really sure how to setup a debate online as I'm transitioning from in person debates.

The problem is that campaign only encourages people to make spam debates in order to make themselves king, so that campaign would only exacerbate the poor-quality debate problem the site has by basically subsidizing spammed debates

Then make "good" debates. Simple as that. Doesn't help to whine about a problem when you won't work to fix it.

Look at a few of this user's last debates: [http://www.debate.org...] They should help guide as to how to initiate a good one. :)
