As PoeJoe discovered [1], it seems as if debate.org has a new owner [2]. Even though we don't know this guy, I feel as if the community should be prepared with some changes we would like. I'll start the list:

1) Tournament System (After (or trying to) run several tournaments, I know that it would work substantially better as a part of the system. Hopefully I can make some suggestions if he is interested in implementing the tournament system.)

2) Comment/Tag Section on photos to actually work (at least comments would be nice, tags seem unnecessary since we don't really know each other so it would mostly be us tagging ourselves)

I'm sure I will think of some other things, and I know there are some desired forum changes, but I'm not as familiar with them as some other users so I'll let you post those.

Make the emoticons more distinguishable. I don't even know what that is, but it says drunk. It looks more like devilish

It's not plausible at all but I would love if we could do 2 on 2 debates.

I believe there is a vote coming tomorrow. Think who would be best in representing this community (and who would be a disaster).

I'm going to keep these in a nice and organized list...

1) Tournament System (After (or trying to) run several tournaments, I know that it would work substantially better as a part of the system. Hopefully I can make some suggestions if he is interested in implementing the tournament system.)

2) Comment/Tag Section on photos to actually work (at least comments would be nice, tags seem unnecessary since we don't really know each other so it would mostly be us tagging ourselves)

3) Make the emoticons more distinguishable.

4) User Mods

5) Reinstatement of Askbob

6) Search function for the forum (including: Topic Keyword, Post Keyword, User Keyword)

7) Other Forum Features (including: Spoiler tags (reduce quote pyramids), Attach links to words; Ex: <url=http://debate.org......</url>, Polls for topics)

8) Profile screen editing (background, etc)

9) Live Chat option and best of all

I think I got everything. Keep adding to the list. Although I think we have the most prominent requests already.

I like Korashks suggestions.

And I'd like to see PMods.

Would be great:

- Tournament System
- Reputation system based on "likes" and "dislikes" of individual posts
- Live chat

Would be annoying:

- Emoticons
- Heavy-handed mods

???

- Why is everyone on Askbob's jock?

Also, a more effective sort of algorithm to determine which debates are on the "most popular" page. RoyLatham's Obama debate has been #1 for wayyy too long

To PCP: I think 2 on 2 debates is plausible. A 4 round debate where each debater did 2 rounds, perhaps? The win/loss could count for both of them and show up as both of their debates in their profiles.

Suggestion: Philosophy forum

Remove Album constraints
Allow for a separate sources page so we don't waste character space
Allow for audio albums
Support different character symbols (not roman)
Allow for a philosophy section in both debates and forums
Make the agree and disagree count for points
Create options for only allow debaters of equal and lower levels to debate you
Give us a list of many reliable source sites

That would cost the owner so much money.

Ahhh, but it can be used as advertisement funding . . .

Does Phil no longer own DDO?

That's the word. Does anyone know who got it? Are there corporations or businesses that buy up potential sites? 130k is a pretty good chunk of change for an individual to want to come out of pocket on. f it is some type of web site business reckon there will be any more support then the previous owner? Could just end up flooded with ads, maybe even a user fee or something.

DDO is not big enough to support a user fee, it would die.
Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

Too much memory, methinks.

Potentially catastrophic, but potentially awesome.

Heck no. They have nothing to do with the debate, and therefore ought not to give points.

Nah, that's just asking for easy wins.

That would be nice.

Also, a revamp/elimination of the leader board wouldn't be too bad. Also, Europeans need the vote.
