I know multiple members have said this before, but after recently viewing the website and being very impressed by its mechanics, I'm going to be hanging out there for a bit. I'll still be on DDO, but I'll be splitting some of my time between here and Edeb8.

I just checked out the site and I couldn't tell the difference. Could someone explain them to me?

Edeb8 is just more focused on debating. It also has less members.
There is a lot less clutter: edeb8 is much cleaner than DDO. The people who are there are generally more dedicated to debating and thus can be considered fairly decent debaters. Average debating prowess on edeb8 is probably higher.
That's about it. DDO on the other hand has an attractive social networking and a jank but more competitive ELO system. :)

There are 40 active members, according to the site's stats. Lol, definitely not a social site :P

Gotcha, thanks.

Also, with the addition of cross-examination via text, debates should theoretically take twice as long because you have to ask your opponent a bunch of questions and wait days for a response.

While I like cross-examination in live debates, I think it slows down a text debate too much and the whole point is kind of defeated when you can't really catch your opponent off-guard and they have as long as they want to think of a response.

Cross examination is optional on edeb8. :)

Text debates are too slow for me as it is.

I hardly have the attention span for the sort of conversation system we have here in the forums.

It's like debating with people in other states in the 1800's.

I'm doing a debate on that site right now. This is me giving it a chance.
