The technical section of the village pump is used to discuss technical issues about Debatepedia.
Debate software proposals and modifications, ongoing list:
Will and Marjan tasks:
#Move search box up to beneath the "navigation" box.
- The code isn't written for this to be done. The most I can do is put it on top. -William Wnekowicz 18:46, 29 November 2007 (CST)
- Create a "create new page" button in the navigation box between "editing policies" and "browsing guide". Link to Debatepedia:Creating new pages.
#Move IDEA home up. -William Wnekowicz 18:46, 29 November 2007 (CST)
- Citation templates.
- New debate functionality should be made more clear in relation to regular debate creation function. (QuadOne or Will and Marjan capability)
- Radio functionality.
- Preview page.?
- Background box pencil icon require clicking twice - Vinod.
- The references section should be made into one box with the following arrangement of double equal sections
- See also
- External links
- Instructional cues should be deployed in new subquestion sections.
- New debate creation vs. regular page creation should be clearer.
- Get rid of subquestion background boxes? Or is there a use?
- Question mark icon next to QuadOne icons (possibly in place of background box) that links to an explaination of the software.
- Table of contents should be automatic.
- Search function. Is something wrong with the search function, as Noel appeared to indicate?
- Taking steps to ensure that people are less likely to screw up tables:
- Spacing at bottom of content box between content and subsequent table code (four spaces)
- Table code cues.
- Eliminate all visibility of the table code when editors click one of the pencil icons.
- 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.
