Its an offshoot from our old debates system from a couple of years ago, we've had a few people recently interested in 1 on 1 debates so it came from that really. Having a 'Debate' button was a quick and simple way to give members access to the system without having to have a debate organiser setting up every debate manually.

Oh, and it's your turn to post an introduction. wink2.gif

I think it would be useful if there was some way to label the posts position in the debate. For instance, the introductions would show up with "(member name) introduction" marking the post. Or the body posts could be noted as "(member name) body post 1 of 4" (maybe repeating the member names is redundent since its already displayed next to their post). However, I think it would be cool to have the posts postion in the debate displayed somewhere like the header along with the date and time of the post. Dunno, just an idea.

Members are encouraged to write 'Introduction' etc. above their responses however there's no facility to do this automatically unfortunately.

Usually as long as the introduction and conclusion are clear then labelling the other posts shouldn't matter.
