Guys! I've noticed that there is a huge issue on this website: only a fraction of debates get voted on. I want to fix this issue by having us trade votes. If you have a debate that needs to be voted on you can come here and ask for that. The only stipulation is that you vote on another debate. I really think this will clear up the lack of judges we have on this website. Thank you and I hope this works!

What we really need is some sort of currency-type mechanism where people could earn say, a ruble, by voting and later cash in that ruble for someone else's vote.

What we really need is to staunch my starvation for social interaction by responding to everything I post in the next 20 minutes.

Also, vote trading sounds shady af.

As long as there is the assurance that the return vote is unbiased; meaning that it is not a fore sure vote in that persons favor but rather a vote on their debate

technically yes, but this refers to a debate trade where the other thread is only for advertisement.

This goes without saying. I want people to be unbiased. I'm just looking to get every debate voted on.

I completely agree! Whatever we do, we need to make DDO great again! There are too many problems: The website won't accept new polls or opinions, no one votes anymore, and those that do are consistently flagged and removed. Juggle llc. needs to set up a committee to be responsible for this website.

Such a mechanism could also be implemented in such a way as to midigate bias; you don't return the favor to someone who voted on your debate, but pay it forward to someone else's.
