This platform/website needs a new feature

There doesn't seem to be a way to one-on-one "challenge" anyone to a debate via a link. This functionality would be worth adding.  It would likely expand the userbase of this site too.

Here are some things I suggested 4 years ago.

1. Add a troll filter that allows people to hide or grey out debates and comments by people they tag as trolls, and automatically ban them from all of your debates.

2. Highlight arguments that have been added since the last time we visited a debate.

3. It would be nice if I could tag debates that other people have created as favorites and be notified when there is new activity in those debates.

4. Add a way to link directly to a comment, similar to the permalink feature on Reddit.

5. Figure out a better way to display deep argument threads. When argument theads get too deep you can't indent them anymore so it becomes difficult to tell which responses go to which arguments if more than one person responds. When the indentation gets too deep, just start the next response back over on the left, but display some kind of indicator, like this https://i.imgur.com/vVps8Un.jpg.

6. A search for my or another user's waterfall (suggested by JustIgnoreMe 2 years ago)

7. Add a page that lists the demographics of the users of CreateDebate.

8. Fix the underline bug. When someone put's just one underscore in their comment, it underlines all comments after it. This usually happens when someone posts a link that has an underscore in it.

I really like most of these ideas. Granted my knowledge on it is limited but it seems like some of them would be pretty simple to incorporate in this site.

I do have a couple more tweaks to propose to the one-on-one debate features here and I was wondering if there might be an ability to post an embedded version of any past debate(s) in video or audio format(examples: YouTube or SoundCloud embeds) so they could be ranked and commented on, just like any of debates that occur entirely within this platform, so that debate rankings can also account for performance in past debates in other formats

I think that "Debate Teams" with external polling would be an interesting feature. That is, members could create a Debate Team ranging from 2-5 members per team say, and have a competition versus another Debate Team where external point scoring or "win/loss" poll is taken by other members (the audience) who are able to read the private debate but not participate themselves outside of scoring, in order to determine which Team wins. Furthermore, Team posts could all be displayed as "Team Name" rather than individual names. That is, if a member of Team X posts, it does not display their screen-name, but rather Team X and Team Logo/Avatar.

Yes, you could stop allowing people to copy other's debates and use them as their own to get points. How can any debate site allow plagerism?

Plagiarize: to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own :use (another's production) without crediting the source.

He doesn't try to pass them off as his own, and he credits the source, so he is not plagiarizing. If you stopped trying to silence everyone that disagrees with you by banning them, he would have no reason to copy your debates.

Just announce that you no longer care about others copying your debates, thank them for reproducing your message, and act like you do not care if they copy you....don't enter any discussions in the copied debates. They will probably tire of promoting your comments by re-publishing your debates, and if they don't, who cares if you don't care?

Coorock tried that child's game with me a while back, never bothered me in the least and he quit doing it after he realized that I actually appreciated the increased attention he gave to the message I desire to spread which is the good news/gospel of Jesus Christ. It really is a child's game he is playing with you and he would tire of it if he finds he can no longer get any negative reaction from you.

Just copy right your debates ;)

I'm with you there. Objectively, the more people that hear about it grant it a potentially larger userbase. I do offer the caveat that most people are not real debaters, but it's already too late for that to matter.

Is the feature found under New debate - Challenge debate what you were looking for?

Side: Yes it does

Almost, except you can only "challenge" someone who's an existing user. I think it would be better to allow you to send a link to a one-on-one debate here.

I can add that functionality...do you think it would be useful?
