The technical section of the village pump is used to discuss technical issues about Debatepedia.

Debate software proposals and modifications, ongoing list:


  1. Radio functionality.
  2. Taking steps to ensure that people are less likely to screw up tables:
    1. Spacing at bottom of content box between content and subsequent table code (four spaces)
    2. Table code cues.
  3. Citation templates.
  4. New debate functionality should be made more clear in relation to regular debate creation function.
  5. Using debate subquestion background box differently; as a place for user comments related to the subquestion?


  1. Voting options. - One of the purposes of the site is to determine where users stand, or to get them to take a stand. One way of pressing this point would be to have them not just vote, but actually give the main rationales for their vote (this could be a window that pops down right under the vote circle/box); almost a test or check that individuals are actually thinking. This could then go into a new page, where all of the user’s positions/votes and rationales are presented in the respective pro/con format.
