Latest website development info...

The website is at a very early stage of development. You should be able to create an account, then add and interact with the debate in the middle column of the page. You can click on thumbs up - Agree; thumbs down - disagree; add a comment; raise a Point-of-Order; raise an Report.

Hey!

This banner is to bring your attention to something. If you click the x in the top right it disappears. I suppose it could be used to contain a link that you might want follow to somewhere useful or just dismiss it. If you dismiss it then it only reappears if you reload the page.

je92 : Motion


I propose a purpose made website for descussing political issues and issues of governance. Many social media platforms get used for this purpose - but there often seems to be problems. At worst the discourse decays into people being abusive. People can be subject to personal attacks, sometimes on a large scale, with threats of violence and worse. The premise of this forum is that all participants must make themselves known to the website - but all debates are anonymised. Debate participants do not know who they are debating with at a personal level. The content of the debate is the important factor, debaters can agree or disagree with the content. The gender, race, age and all other personal attributes of the debaters has no place in the debate.

je92 : Statement of opinion


It is important that the website has an awareness of the identity of the participants - to prevent debaters being able to hide behind total anonymity and post abusive and threatening content without fear of recourse.

pe85 : Statement of opinion


I can see that people are given an ID code and not referred to by their own or chosen name. I can see that I have been assigned the code pe85. I presume that is my identifier in this debate forum. Other users could simply be abusive to pe85.

Each user could be given a different code name in every debate. That would limit abuse, agression, threats etc to only one debate. If no personal details are given - than it is not a personal attack but an attack upon the content/opinion.

je92 : Statement of opinion


All participants in a debate are responsible for their own content. Other debaters can agree or disagree with their opinion. All debate participants can raise concerns if they see any inappropriate content. The point-of-order button is intended for minor infringements - repetition & off-the-point comments etc. The report button is to report more serious content that should not be shown.
