Revision as of 06:20, 11 February 2008


Thanks for the feedback, Brooks. As a newbie, it's really nice to have an experienced person approaching me (the founder, no less. gosh!). It makes me feel more like a partner than some random editor floating around in space somewhere that few could care less about. So I'll continue editing. I had a question though. I know what resources I am getting my information from, and what resources will back up my arguments, but I just don't have the time to make a big project of this site. However, I think I would have the time to name the books and/or authors for my arguments if somebody else could actually include the references for me. In other words, I'll write the arguments while somebody else cites the sources with my guidance. Do you think that would actually work out? And if so, what would be the best way to guide other editors to my sources?

I also have another question. When I edit something, where do I describe my edit? Is that what the "Summary" line is for?

Education and technology debate

Hi Brooks, thanks for inviting me here via my blog. (Can I ask how you found it? :-)). I've left a note on the education and technology debate talk page - could you take a look? Cheers, Cormaggio 11:25, 6 November 2007 (CST)




A bunch of articles appear to be deleted? :(

Yeah, this problem was solved. Thanks for the notice though :) -- Brooks Lindsay 10:39, 21 November 2007 (CST)

it might be easier?

I think Jenna Song might be a lot easier for everyone ;) Thanks~


okay =) --Jenna821 17:47, 15 January 2008 (CST)

Thanks ;)

I think I might be able to manage the argument page, but I'll ask again if I have any questions~ I'm actually in a competition waiting room right now, so I might not be able to do much immediately, but I'll be back in a few hours. Cheers, --Jenna821 19:13, 15 January 2008 (CST)


Hey there, I'm not sure if this is what i'm supposed to do in response to the message you left me, but ... I responded on my site by clicking the +. Hope you're following my site, heh. The introduction guide on how to correspond with other members wasn't very informative for me.QuadFather 15:00, 18 January 2008 (CST)

Neutral arguments


Did you edit the Guantanamo main section enough to make it more neutral or do I still need to change it a bit. Sorry for the waste of your time and thanks for the help. I am continuing with the arguments today. I also need help with the alignment of writing, how do I get it into columns etc and the picture insertion. Ali.

Media files

Hey thanks for all the help. I've got the image up now but unfortunately am struggling with the media file. The URL is but I cannot get it on. If you could just run through it for me that would be great. Thanks very much have a good day!

Thanks for creating my site for me :)

I've had this idea that debates could be organized cooperatively online for many years (decades if you go back to my original concept of a truth machine). But I couldn't find anyone with the right set of skills, time and belief in the project to help put it together.

You've done a great job. It's only been up a short time and it's already almost perfect. But it's still missing one component. There should be an indicator (or indicators) at the summary of each argument to show at a glance the status of the argument. Is it just a stub, fully vetted, refuted or are there significant open questions. DanOetting 22:19, 22 January 2008 (CST)

Anything else?

Hi Brooks! Thanks for all the help. I have tried to change those titles to "claims" and I think it has worked. I've also added various references. Is there anything else I need to do for example would more arguments be better etc. If so tell me sooner rather than later as the time difference will mean I am asleep. Have a good day!

Security Council Veto Debate

Hi, i've been working on the security council veto one for 3 hours now, and I had a bit of trouble with resources, but I think i'm getting on ok I rephrased the argument titles from the original debatabase entry, and I want to rephrase and change the arguments themselves as opposed to the debatabase ones, is that ok? and what am i supposed to do in the "in legislation, policy, and elsewhere" section? Sorry to be so late in starting on this, and happy lunar new year ;)--Jenna821 10:06, 7 February 2008 (CST)


Brooks, a problem comes out. I don't know how to make an argument page. I follow the steps but i can only turn the head to red, but I don't know where I can create a new page made of supporting evidences...etc.


Thx Brooks for ur innumerous help. I have sth else to take care so that I have to leave now and I'll continue to fertilize this file tomorrow.


What could I comment on and why?


Here I am . I am looking up con side arguments. I'll ask you for help if i cannot handle something although I hope i'll do a good job:) thanks
