Yeah, there's no judge on this stuff. For the most part, "make the case" is intended to be a way to just make things more interesting for editors. In general, though, we are engaged in building an encyclopedia, so it's not about winners and losers, but, as you noted, filling the site with knowledge. I'll be focusing on the capital punishment debate later this week. It needs a lot of work. -- Brooks Lindsay 19:22, 28 April 2008 (CDT)
I'm not sure what you mean by the "verdict". As far which article we should use, we should use the Capital Punishment one (with caps). I'll delete the old capital punishment page when you're done merging content. BTW, make sure to "sign" your comments with ~~~~ at the end.
- We already have a capital punishment debate page: Debate:Capital Punishment. Sometimes, it's easy to miss a debate article when searching for it through our search function. It's not the best function. Sorry about that. See if you can't integrate your arguments into the existing capital punishment page. Look to see if they are already made. Then, we'll delete the page you created, completing the merger. -- Brooks Lindsay 01:04, 28 April 2008 (CDT)
Not to worry
It's OK. I'm enjoying overviewing your work. I'll be giving you feedback soon. All the best. -- Brooks Lindsay 00:58, 28 April 2008 (CDT)
OK. Let's see what you got. I'll jump in upon seeing any arguments you make there, and shoot em down. Ha Ha. But, make sure to abide by the encyclopedic rules of the project at the same time here. Best, -- Brooks Lindsay 12:31, 25 April 2008 (CDT)
Hey Shredyourfaceoff! Welcome to Debatepedia. I parsed and moved your arguments around on the polygamy debate page. I like your other contributions. Keep in mind, though, this is an encyclopedia project aimed more at outlining and documenting lines of argumentation that enabling people to express their personal opinion. There is no "I" voice on Debatepedia's main articles, although it is completely acceptable on discussion pages. Express your opinion as brightly as you want on the discussion pages for sure. Make sure to have a look at the Debatepedia:Getting started tutorial. Please ask me as many questions as possible so that I can introduce you into the process. Hopefully, you will be interested in moving toward becoming an administrator on Debatepedia. All the best -- Brooks Lindsay 13:25, 24 April 2008 (CDT)
