Should I close my DDO account?

Posted by: WilliamsP

My win ratio is not going well and I have not had a fair debate for quite a while. I am considering closing this account and creating a new one. What do you think?

  • No.

  • Yes.

  • i think so it would come useful any tym in the life

  • It isn't you. It's the format of the site.

  • When I started out my win ratio was just as bad. Now I have +130 wins.

  • You're a powerful debater.

  • I'll help you up your win percentage if you would like to have a few debates with me on more fun/silly topics, such as who is the best Thundercat? (Snarf, of course) Challenge me, if you dare! :) But don't leave!

  • Of course, this depends on how strongly you feel about your falling win-ration, or how much you really want a "fair debate". If you really are concerned about the above, then why not create a new account? You've been on this website for more than 1/2 a year, so you're rather accustomed, and thus a new account can be your chance to start from scratch, which may be a good thing, given that you already have some experience.

Welcome to reality! DDO is NOT a well-constructed arena for debates. It is a popularity contest. The site is better for laughs than constructive, intelligent conversation or debate!

SweetTea: That is why you should pick judges that are agreed upon by both parties to vote, not let the voting be open. There are those that will vote objectively.

Lifemeansevolutionisgood ... Judges need to be aware of what constitutes good debating, i.e. 9 key principles, research of topic, etc. Just picking judges, that both parties agree upon, does not imply that the process is done correctly!

I appreciate the optimism. Therefore, I will most likely not close the account. However, I may create a new one that will become my main account.

WilliamsP: I don't even debate on this website. I just troll the poll sections.

@WilliamsP Even if you start a new account, you're going to know that your win/loss isn't really whatever the new account says it is. You do hard debates, and your w/l reflects that, don't let that get you down.

Just open a second account.

WilliamsP: If you open another account while your original account is still open, you are breaking the rules.
