So I've noticed that the big issues are talked about all over on the site and that in alot of areas alot of the same stuff is repeated and the same stuff is argued over again and again and again. So I will be posting what I hope will be the ku de gra of the forums. One forum thread for each big issue. Hopefully this will be a vibrant chapter in debate.orgs history.

A 'ku de gra' eh?
Awesome!
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Do you realize this a forum not the wiki?

yes I do, and I would think it a good idea to have 1 major place to discuss the big issues?

The issues will arise naturally if they are indeed "big issues" No need to make a bunch of threads and then find out that 80% are unused.

Make one, if you get a great response then make another. Don't just keep making them.

We have them scattered. Wouldn't it be good to have these threads in this forum section to connect the arguments? I see these areguments and repititions all over the place and I think it would be nice to do this but if it is this unwanted I will stop.

No. People won't use them. The forums will get clogged with these. So stop.

Admitting is the first step, unlike some n00bs (http://www.debate.org...) who come and are adamant they are 100% right.

If you can't admit you are wrong then you have a problem. Thats what I feel.

No it would not be, if I want to argue about say abortion I can go to the forum most relevant to whatever spin I am putting on it. Having the major issues lumped in with the miscellaneous section is clunky and awkward.

Also if each big issue thread has been active for many months it has probably died to two people arguing over a specific nuance, or the occaisional person posting without reference or context with the argument thus far.

I see these areguments and repititions all over the place and I think it would be nice to do this but if it is this unwanted I will stop.
