Debate Module


Active member
I run a debate site. Currently, it's just the forum where members debate/discuss a variety of topics.

However, I'd like to have a couple more features specifically tailored to debating, similar to:

http://www.forandagainst.com/Should_Canada_And_United_States_Armies_Unite <-- probably the better layout between the 3

Specifically, sort of an editable "tally" for members to give their input and a quick comment about the current progress of the debate.

The top of the thread would have the tally score for the Pro and Con sides. Maybe also have a few editable questions like www.debate.org has.

This isn't just a poll feature though. It needs to be able to be changed by the member at any time depending upon how the debate is going. An example graphic from forandagainst.com:


Doesn't necessarily have to be identical...debate.org is completely different, but it essentially does the same thing: shows which position is currently winning the debate.

Also, and this could be extra: a way to automate the closing of the debate. Perhaps a visual countdown that is configurable...could be 48 hrs, 1 week, 1 month, etc...

Willing to pay of course. Just let me know what the estimated cost and eta is either in this thread, or via pm if you want to keep it private.

Anyone able to take this up? I've posted this project over at a few freelance sites and had a few nibbles...but I prefer to have XF community modders do the work as they'll know the code better IMO.

I found some hits at a couple freelance sites. Lowest bid is $220.

Any modders here wanna take it on for less?

Anyone want to donate to the cause here?
