I'm Smithereens from DDO, I like how this place feels. I'm probably going to twiddle my thumbs for a few years and hope that this site grows into something beautiful.
Perhaps with ddo in the shape it is in the process won't be quite so slow.
DDO's community died before news of this one could spread unfortunately. I have a few DDOers on facebook that I could ping, but rebuilding the community is going to take some good old fashioned heralding and a dose of new blood.
oh look a quote feature, and no more walls of text by default
Looks really nice, the Creator did a great job hopefully it'll gain some traction.
I like the forums are more casual then debate oriented.
Neat.There's a quote feature?
It looks like we have to manually quote however, which is a slight bother.
It could be. But if 70% of the people here are from DDO's religion forum, that's gonna be a major buzzkill.
The benefit of religious forum culture was that they rarely ventured outside it. I found it hilarious that as the site deteriorated they were all oblivious as to why it was happening when literally the entirety of the rest of the site had been well aware of the reasons for years.
Rm is the best guy ever.
You are right it may take some time. It is rather unfortunate how DDO has become...
But their is hope for this place. So, lets hope for the best Here..
I should get credit for being totally aware the whole time. I became a prominent member of Di as did Whiteflame as soon as we could.
And no we in no shape or form joined together, I actually had totally quit DDO and got bored of the site and DI was advertising on CD which caught my eye.
WF and I can claim actual superiority over the rest of you in this. We both genuinely (in totally separate paths of getting there) became regulars of a debating-specialist community as DDO came to its ruins.
DI can barely be called a debating website.
I heard from FB this is the new DDO?
Probably the best candidate, but its still up in the air.
its the closest thing out there to DDO
DI can entirely be called a debating website. Not slightly, not barely, entirely. It also invented entirely unique forms of debating that the admin here has said he'd like to mimic so please do think before you type
Like what?It also invented entirely unique forms of debating
Let me just screenshot where the admin here admits lusting after a debate type that DI invented (one of the two that it invented entirely on its own, the other being "Formalish")
Now let's observe where the user who suggested it got their idea from.
I will paste two links that make it blatant that it's both a DI regular who suggested it and that it's from DI he got the idea.
Reddit is basically that. I'm not sure how old DI is. but it isn't older than Reddit.
No, Reddit has no functionality for the creator of a threat to award a 'best responder' and you are entirely allowed to post agreement with the original poster and to purely advise them or troll with some sarcasm.
In DI you are only allowed to debate against the original poster or to counter what another said in a direct manner in favor of the poster's position.
You may have meant Yahoo Answers or Quora but no, there the 'best answer' is not in any way necessarily in disagreement with the original poster but I admit on DI some people use the format wrong and award best 'persuade me' response to someone agreeing with them.
You can now go ahead and tell me how you were correct in saying DI is not a debating platform. It offers two different 1v1 formats.
