Debate.org is exactly what it sounds like. A website where you could debate topics give your opinion on polls and topics and there's even a forum. I came to Debate.org after Sodahead.com cut all of the user off for financial reasons. Unfortunately however, the website suffers from a bad community, poor moderation and a lot of technical issues. Most of the users are desperate for attention teenaged trolls and the older ones are mostly stubborn $#*!s. It's nearly as worse as Yahoo answers. The Debate sections is riddled with stupid debates that wind up turning into conversations. Not to mention when you start winning the debate, they resort to the troll card. People tend to use a lot of Plagiarism as well and the debates are mostly rigged because debaters normally has a couple of friends waiting to vote for them. The Opinion sections and Forum section are full of flammers who make threads and tend look to attack people who don't agree with them. Not to mention all the dumb polls and topics that are allowed to be put up. Certain members get away with a lot $#*!, due to moderators either being overly laid back or for favoritism reasons. The website is poorly managed. Sometimes I can't click anything in the Opinions section, pages don't appear, the forum section design is so generic and the topic sections seems really useless and to use the debate section you have to do a verification. It's not the worst opinion base websites, but I can't recommend something like this.
There has been an uptick in mafia and forum drama.
However, seeing as this is not 4chan, idgaf about social aspects and games. This is DEBATE.org. Debates hardly ever mean anything anymore. You can't get better if you are a noob. Why? Because noobs have to start at their own pace, meaning they must debate the lesser debaters before they can achieve their goal of becoming an exemplary debater, but the noobs just will cause the forfeit glitch and the old members will crush the noobs. Thus, they become uninterested and leave. DDO will not survive these years. There can always be a temporary surge in activity, but if we don't get enough new blood to join the site, the old members will get sick of it and leave. 2015/16 was drama filled and it caused lots of members to realize what a joke this site was and left, leaving it in a state of dullness and stagnation for half of a year. History is doomed to repeat itself. Without some sort of company to fix the problem, there is no permenant solution to bringing DDO back to the golden ages.
