Hi! Welcome to the Feedback forum.
Before reading anything or asking anything; please check out the FAQs. Your question might be in there. However if you want a better understanding after reading the FAQs, like if it didn't explain it good enough, then you may ask your question.

Please read the following before posting anywhere in this forum...

In this forum you will see an Announcement, and several "sticky" topics. The announcement is the Universal Board Rules. If you are new, read this before doing anything else. The sticky topics will stay above and separated from normal user-made topics in the forum. This is because they outline important information about the board. If you see a sticky topic concerning your issue, please reply with your question or concern in the correct topic. Moderators will see your reply within these topics. Before asking your question, be sure to read the topic and it's first page especially. It contains information about your issue that is valuable and may even answer your questions. If the topic does not answer your question, ask your question within the topic, not the forum. If no sticky topic concerns your issue, then you are welcome to ask your own questions by creating a new topic within the forum.

Thank you for keeping the Board Help forum organized!

We have debates in the world issues forum as it is; even though moka already said not to lol

well, it happens anyway, this will just leave the people that dont want to get involved...uninvolved and the people that dont want to see it wont see it

Every mistake that I've made
I never said I was an angel, no
I never said I wouldn't break down

Have people been complaining that they feel forced into debates in the World Issues forum?

No, they don't complain about being forced into it, but they do complain about it in general yeah.
Half of the time these debates occur and you see a lot of posts like "OMG DRAMAZ ON INTERNETZ!" "Another day on MLK." I think that is what Woeler was talking about. The stuff with Noah and personal problems between members, that is the silly drama that plagues this site... People having differing opinions on subject, is a conversation... Quite the difference.
I mean these people are probably reporting these debate threads as drama, hence why a lot of the time they end up being locked. So I do see where he is coming from, in some aspects at least.

Unless I'm wrong, nothing's been locked since the ban on religious discussion was placed, nor have I seen any of that drama since then. MLK seems to have accepted that debates are going to happen in the World Issues given the nature of the thing, and we debaters have been keeping level heads, and coexisting peacefully with non-debaters, so... we're sailing pretty smoothly if you ask me.


But... who asked me??

^You are right about one thing, no one did ask you, so shut ya pie hole.

Honestly though, there was one a short while back that got locked, and maybe should not have... Ah yeah here it is, viewtopic.php?f=149&t=21948
The debate really came in the last few pages, but nonetheless, it was locked because it was considered drama.
On the other hand, I like that people can contribute to the World Issues threads freely and the current status quo seems to be working pretty well. No other parts of the forum are closed away from the rest, so no reason for any opinionated subjects to be either, I guess.

Edit - and it only takes one person to publicly disagree with a post, so really any thread has potential to turn into a debate anyway... Seems a bit pointless to try and shield the eyes of the younglins from it =D

The drama starts when someone drops the word "drama"
