The option for more than two sides in a debate

As it stands now, when we create a debate here, we have a few options. -A perspectives debate, where there are no sides to choose between and everyone posts his or her stance on the matter. -For/against debates, wherein two positions are defined and can be argued for or against according to the posters choice. -Challenge debates which are much the same as the for/against category. However, there are almost always more than two possible stances on an issue. Very often, there are more than two popular stances on an issue. Not every topic is a dichotomy. I'm opening this petition to request the option to include a third, or possibly even a fourth 'side' in the for/against and challenge debate types. I believe this will allow many debates to be more active, and as such get more perspectives and arguments in general for the topic- a solid win all around, in my opinion. I've read many a debate where I was interested and wanted to make statements, but couldn't countenance the idea of voting for either option offered, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. Setting the goal initially to 50 signatures.

A site dedicated to debate should promote nuance as much as possible.

Having exclusively two sides lends itself towards only catering to those who have extremely differing views. It discredits those who disagree for only a particular reason, or those who only partially disagree.

It would be great to have more that two side debates. They would become more heated arguments. And that's what a debate should be. Heated

I have had times where I want to make a compromise because both sides of the argument are exaggerated.

Sometimes I don't like either choices or both choices and I want to say why. However, I can't because only two choices are allowed.

Very rarely are debates as binary as the site often suggests. Quite frequently are the most reasonable answers are another viewpoint entirely

I often find myself stuck in between views on for/against debates, wanting to argue both sides.

Sometimes I don't feel too well allied with either side and feel the need for a second option
