Thanks for the grammatical correction Aher. That kind of mistake on our community-outreach page wouldn't have helped instill much confidence. So, very much appreciated.

Are you interested in becoming a closer member of our team. We are really trying to expand our community. Let me know.

Generally, add to the bottom, but you can do so automatically by clicking the + tab at the top of the page. I am very excited to have you on the site and part of the effort. What refinements would you recommend? -- Brooks Lindsay 00:35, 16 March 2009 (CDT)

Featured on main page.

Hey Aher, I've featured you and some of your work and comments on the main page. -- Brooks Lindsay 14:16, 18 March 2009 (CDT)

Re: Comments

Hey Aher, thanks so much for joining up with us. Debatrix is a very cool, original name. I'm happy to have you on board with us. Yeah, I want to feature the work of editors like yourself on the main page so that you get as much credit as possible for your work. And, we get a lot of traffic - about 4500 unique visitors every day, so the reward can be very high. -- Brooks Lindsay 15:49, 18 March 2009 (CDT)

Christ, debate

Hey. I'm glad to see you creating debates. Good work. With Debate: christ, you may be referring to the following articles already on Debatepedia (and which should probably be merged) Debate:Historicity of Jesus, Debate:Did a histoical Jesus ever Exist?. Would you be willing to take up the project of merging these two debate articles, preferably by cutting the content of the "Historicity" one and pasting it into the "Did a historical Jesus ever exist?". -- Brooks Lindsay 18:03, 19 March 2009 (CDT)


Yeah, it's definitely going very well. It's exciting. And, our traffic is growing as more people realize we exist and link to us and write articles about us. In general, it's a good thing to keep in mind. If you can link or get other people to link to Debatepedia, it helps what is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as Google ranks search results largely according to external links into a site. We're definitely trying to encourage all of our supporters to be active promoters of Debatepedia in this way. And, with more people coming to the site, more people join in and help "clarify public debates globally". You get the idea. Anyway, let me know if you have any strategizing ideas for Debatepedia - marketing, fundraising, content, main page, user guide... we are all ears. Generally, we are trying to convey that this is a public citizen-owned project (not just a project of IDEA). Best, -- Brooks Lindsay 18:13, 19 March 2009 (CDT)
