Fragment of a discussion from User talk:Lumenos
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm interested describing debates in mediawikis, not the Flash enabled site. Adobe Flash is sneaky spyware with its cookies that require BetterPrivacy (Firefox addon) to view, or BleachBit (Linux) to delete. It also makes one's computer vulnerable exploits.

Describing debates is nothing new. It is being done in Wikipedia and here at RationalWiki. We can extract anything interesting from a debate and put it in an article.

What about a tree structure, like that site actually has (beside its flash)... that could be done more textually, like:

  • Issue
    • Question 1
      • Proposed answer 1
        • Pro consideration 1
        • Pro consideration 2
        • Anti consideration 1
        • Anti consideration 2
      • Proposed answer 2
        • Pro consideration 1
        • Pro consideration 2
        • Anti consideration 1
        • Anti consideration 2
    • Question 2
      • Proposed answer 1
        • Pro consideration 1
        • Pro consideration 2
        • Anti consideration 1
        • Anti consideration 2
      • Proposed answer 2
        • Pro consideration 1
        • Pro consideration 2
        • Anti consideration 1
        • Anti consideration 2

if you get the picture....

I'm not sure what you are asking. I prefer the tree structure in MediaWiki. Here I'm starting a dialogMap on our discussion of eternal recurrence http://lumeniki.referata.com/wiki/Eternal_recurrence . I haven't yet replied to the main point of your last argument which would be the important part.
