translation of title: unless it's a video debate, debates shouldn't be allowed to have 100 max characters per round. (meaning that DART should increase this limit)
Opponent may not argue that 100 max characters is too few even to link to video debates, that is not the topic.
Video-based debate: A link on youtube (or some other site) which holds the two people having the discussion and the link is copy pasted onto DART. This is the only reason I can see for 100 max characters.
avg word 5 char, avg essay need at least 200~300 words [v.gd/argsh]. 100 char too few for good arg!!
This syllogism is a good 65c arg:
- All men are mortal
- Socrates is a man
- Therefore, Socrates is mortal
one arg usually no good for entire debates (cherry pick possible). Abbrev. make debates informal, too
- If PRO's arg persuades, PRO disproved
- If CON persuades, PRO stands likewise disproved
- Pls. VOTE CON

I like having an upvote feature, but would be against a downvote feature.
thx for voting!
That seems like a well informed critique to me
Not really. I think what it is is the overflow of disrespectful and non-serious users and subreddits. However, I think it is unfit for Dart consider it will probably make DART less serious connecting it to Reddit.
I see. Do you feel like the up/down option contributes to that app's poor reputation?
The score idea. Reddit is known to have an upvote and downvote function.
sorry to be so ignorant but I've never tried Reddit based on that app's trollish reputation, so I'm uncertain to what you refer. Are you saying that in response to my score idea or in response to this debate or general political atmosphere or something else?
I swear DART is turning into reddit, except the posts are debates.
"The like button will be back, don't worry"
what if instead of like we had a score? Any user could apply a one time score to any comment, +2, 1, 0, -1, -2. Negative scores would bring positive rankings and positive scores would improve negative scores. The current overall score would be visible in the upper right hand corner of each comment.
Just don't make any 100 char debates and don't accept any 100 char debates and you are covered
this was seriously too tough lol plz increase 100 char limit
The like button will be back, don't worry
No one should, but they could.
I don't see the point of having 100 char limit only to have a doc with much bigger char limit
I'd like your comment but I just noticed that thumbs up is gone in new format.
For ideas, you could fit an entire word document in 100 character urls since they didn't limit document debates.
Lol I like this one
Hard to make the argument that there's not enough characters, without using more characters.
