Thanks Jon. We're looking into the Germany thing. Generally, you've been very helpful. We're going to look into many of your suggestions, and I'll come back to you with more questions I'm sure. Please feel free to contact me with any additional suggestions that come to mind. Thanks so much, and good work with the article. I appreciate it very much. -- Brooks Lindsay 14:35, 8 April 2008 (CDT)

Moved Libertarian debate

to Debate:Libertarianism. I think this makes sense, since the scope of the debate surrounds the legitimacy of the philosophy generally. But give me your feedback. -- Brooks Lindsay 11:48, 9 April 2008 (CDT)

Debatepedia:Community forum

Debatepedia's community forum is where we're trying to get the community members to request help from one-another. It hasn't picked up too much speed yet (at all), but it is where you should post requests. I will certainly join in on any efforts you propose there. The Debatepedia:Editing tasks page is also a place for this all, but has also not picked up too much speed.

Thanks Jonathan for volunteering one hour per day. I'm very excited by this. One of the things that Debatepedia can use from you is your continued perspective of the ingredients that go into strong community-building. So, be critical. :) Best. - Brooks Lindsay 16:11, 13 May 2008 (CDT)

Re:Media Kit

Very cool Jonathan. Thanks for taking the initiative to do that. Yes, we will start sending out monthly press releases at the end of this month. I'm glad you liked the contributions on the Ex-felon debate I made. I'll keep em coming. Great debate topic, by the way. :) -- Brooks Lindsay 11:41, 14 May 2008 (CDT)

Subquestion background sections

I noticed that you edited in the subquestion background boxes in the Libertarian debate. What did you think of this feature? Criticisms/improvements? The other question I would ask is that we want to open up our software add-ons to the larger MediaWiki programmer community. Do you have any suggestions on this front? -- Brooks Lindsay 14:15, 16 May 2008 (CDT)

Libertarian debate; quotations

As you've noticed, part of what we are doing is amassing in argument pages quotations that make particular arguments. The general idea has been to synthesize the birds-eye view of a debate in debate articles with the details of quotations in argument pages. But, also, on debate pages, we want to have a mix of summaries of arguments as well as quotations (when a particular quotation does a particularly good job of summarizing an argument). BTW, we refer to the argument "headers"/titles of argument pages as "argument claims" or just "claims". I'll refer to them this way in the future. I'm going to "publish" the Libertarianism debate on the main page Daily Debate Digest at the end of the day. You should keep working on it, and I'll continue as well. Next, let's publish the Vegetarianism debate. Great work Jonathan! You've done everything exactly right. I've given you administrator status. -- Brooks Lindsay 14:23, 16 May 2008 (CDT)
