Does debate.Org need a new user interface?

Posted by: triangle.128k

The current user interface is so boring! And the background color is ugly.

  • The user interface is just plain out terrible.

  • Add the ability to change and remove answers.

  • I'd like to see something new. Nothing hard to use or much different from the original, but a new look and some new features maybe even an app.

  • As long as an update doesn't screw everything up

  • Make it customizable so you can choose the colours or put a picture for your background.

  • To be honest, it's not horrible. I mean it could use a bit more colour and stuff but it's not the worst. I just like change.

Just for the forum. It is very old, and I bet was a third-party. They need to add more formatting for the poll comments. It wouldn't hurt is they kept a proper bug tracking list with comments and resolutions.

Ignore the political (conservatives) and just check out the forum software of DemocraticUnderground . Com. (remove spaces) . Very good forum software.

I would also make some changes to the dashboard. Great concept. I wonder how many people USE their dashboard

What I hate is the over-all look of debate.Org. It could really use major improvement.

And I agree about the forums, the forums just look terrible. There also needs to be a limit on how many quotes you can put in a post. If you go to the forums, chances are you may see walls of text repeatedly.

@triangle.128k from a straight "look" perspective, I don't think its bad. Are you talking color & graphics?
triangle.128k says2015-04-06T13:42:39.7485225-05:00
Yeah, I just find the orange coloring, the gray-ish background, buttons and all look bad. The banner is kind of ugly as well.

I think I would spend more time in the forums if it were better. That style was tossed from most forums years ago.

Same, it's confusing to read and it has no formatting options.

My biggest gripe is still with the textarea for polls. The only thing you get is a wall of text, making it very hard to deal with.

Yeah I can't post on opinions most of the time
triangle.128k says2015-04-07T08:00:54.4397057-05:00
That's because you have adblock on. You have to turn off adblock to post on opinions, it sucks.

I decided to white list them. At least the banners are non-intrusive.

@retrogamer: I agree. I disable adblocks on sites I like anyway, to support them. I have to say, though, that some of the ads can be quite... Disturbing. Lately I've seen a series of advertisements that including somebody poking a pig's anus to get gold and weapons, with the slogan 'You can open a anus like a beer can. Stab the pig and get divine weapons!'
