CreateDebate debates have become too much about personal and social issues

I've noticed way too many debates that dominate the home page are either meaningless or only the concern of a select few. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought debates were supposed to be appealing to a general audience. Of course, there's nothing wrong with this if users believe it's okay, but I'd like to see what people think about it. I feel like a lot of the things that are being made into debates could easily be kept to messages, instead of occupying the home page with debates that are not appealing to a majority of users.

This sounds like a personal problem..., exactly the type you are complaining about ;)

Well I get the feeling that it's a problem that many people are having. I'd hardly say it's refined to me.

Side: Clearly

Maybe..., but it got me 5 points. ;)

Well it has been bad for a while, and I guess today I reached a tipping point.

It's been bad ever since I got here. And before that even. However I haven't exactly helped things along and I really don't care to.

I am sorry for being part of the problem. :'(

Well it's not necessarily a problem. This debate was meant to see if the majority thinks it is.

and it does seem to be a problem :P although i've created a few such debates myself, i didn't realise they could turn into such an uproar.

Well, it's not even just Dana, there's more people that do it. But yeah I guess it's just gotten kind of out of hand recently.

agreed. but you guys have been getting out of control lately. it's like comment wars on Facebook. it also increases your points for sometimes meaningless debate, while other users strive to get onto the weekly leader board. :/

We are Creating Debates what is wrong with that?

In a lot of sense, yes. There are a few debates created by a few people who have difficulties in life

Side: Clearly

I agree with you. I thought there would be more adults and adult conversations than this.

We need a mass message feature. That would be cool. Then everybody could post there.

Agreed or have a great big chat room of some sort.

Whoa, whoa there Andy.... don't you have something else on your list that comes first? LOL

P.S. I don't know why anyone would down-vote this? I'll fix it.

Side: Not really

I think that would be pretty cool if that comes to existence on this site.

Actually no... I don't see this as a problem at all.... what's wrong with debating social issues?

I don't see why you couldn't use tinychat for planned debates. That way there's no hit to the server here.

Upvote. Some dickwad downvoted you. .

Sure that's what it's dissolved to, but I wouldn't say it's too much. It's a social site, for people to make debates about the issues that vex them. If the issues are social and personal, that's what the people want. So it's not as if it's in access compared to the majority's decision. If anything it's level with them.

Though as a site where you can make a debate with the press of a few buttons, if it is your opinion that the debate pickings are too personal, you can take it upon yourself to rally the issue with better debates more suited to your interests.
