Definitely new features. Maybe add an "recently added features" section like on the Vimeo Staff blog...or a more intricate page with upcoming features like here: http://vimeo.com/roadmap can you tell i sweat vimeo?

I think you should add a feature where you can upload a pic to a debate.

I would like to see color coded arguments. If it is a hot important argument I want to use red to make my point. If it is more passive I think a blue font is better.

There isn't enough people here to have a strong, flowing debate. I want to hear more about how to bring new people into the site and keep them coming back.

Marketing can be exciting. I think that everyone who has been a part of the private beta desires to see the website make it big. Let us know how you plan to make it to the next level.

While I agree that we all want to see CreateDebate make it big, an active blog that showcases new features really can be marketing in and of itself. Showing activity through a blog is one way of keeping loyal users (as long as you end up consistently rolling out the features promised...).
But to be even more realistic and maybe severe, I think the CreateDebate team should be sure to post both! Create an active blog that has weekly posts with updates and statuses and get your users interested in not only utilizing the service but considering it something that they can cherish and be involved in. One of my pet peeves is web service companies that have very inactive blogs or that post irregularly. When I am interested in a web service or a web application and I see that the blog is updated once or twice a year or one a very irregular basis then I get a little turned off as I see the dev team as being less active or less interested in involving their users.
