0.5 Alpha - 16th October 2015
We have added the concept of phasing a debate through three timed sections. Users can choose to set time boundaries on a debate, as before, but now also time phases of the debate. There are now three phases to a phased debate:
- Discuss Phase: where users add ideas and arguments to the debate;
- Reduce Phase: (NEW) where users can allocate up to 10 lemons to the ideas they least like. These are then used to reduce to final idea list down by up to 60%;
- Decide Phase: where users vote on the remianing ideas to determine the most popular top 3 ideas.
