Thank you for doing so. Now, do you think that debato could be extended in this way?

I think it is a very useful idea to incorporate. I'm only trying to think about places where it could fit practically. Debato is mainly created with the idea of being a place to exchange arguments and respond to other points of view rather than a place to reach a final concensus. It also does not try to force a user into a category pro or con because he/she can place thoughts, opinions, reasonings in any of the categories with the goal of discussing it further. Having this system of voting would also imply that the sharing of these thoughts has to be finished after a certain time which might limit the distribution of ideas. You have also experienced yourself that you really need a significant user base to make this concept have practical value. User involvement is also something highly variable as we have seen the last year which, as I believe, might lead to a die out of the function.

But I can't stop thinking about the idea. Perhaps there are possible future expansions where people could post statements that can be voted on in several filtering rounds.

What do you think about it? Do you have any idea or opinion about this? Would love to hear it!

I would love to see a round where this method is used. I like your idea that a debate can be endlessly continued and supplemented, as well. But maybe such an experiment can be integrated if you have already collected many pros and cons on a certain topic at debato? We could work together here or maybe invite someone else? The biggest difficulty is indeed to find enough participants. I also think it's a good idea to do several filter rounds. What about debato, is it already running?

Let's stay in touch and see how debato develops.

I'll definitely stay in touch, I think it could have a place on debato and I would love your cooperation when the time is right! But first I'll focus on the main concepts of argument sharing and interactions. I think this should be optimised to start attracting users.

Currently debato is up and running. All functionalities are in place and it is through actual use and interactions that I am figuring out what functions are needed and what can be improved. In the last few weeks for example I also noticed there should be a better framework for discussing in the comment section because not every thought can be fitted in an argument.

Currently I'm slowly trying to expand the user base while making sure that everything works as it should and the platform is pleasant to use.
