  2. The opinion bar

    Drag the bar in the middle to the right or left in order to express your approval or disapproval. If you move the bar to the right, you can say gradually "rather yes" or "basically yes". Drag the bar left to answer "rather no" or "in principle no." You can leave the bar in the middle to express your indecision. Right next to the bar you can see where the overall opinion of the votes cast at the moment.

  3. The discussions

    All current questions and topics are shown in the list on the homepage. Clicking takes you to the relevant proposals and discussions. Discussions differ in:

    a) discussions with opinion bar contain contra and pro-arguments for the respective topic or question.

    b) discussions with the displayed number of replies contain open answers to the question asked. These responses can then in turn be discussed, i.e. they themselves represent discussion topics. Clicking on these answers will take you directly into the discussion. You also have the possibility, to add more responses and thus to start new discussions. Among the listed, see the button "Reply". 

  4. Discuss

    If you are in a discussion, you will see the topic / question at the top which you can express yourself to. Below you will find the opinion bar for the topic, which gives you control by moving the beam in the center (see above). If you would like to write an argument, just click on the plus sign next to "Contra" or "Pro". This opens the input box for your reasoning. Dub the argument in the corresponding line and write your opinion. Post your argument.

    If you like, you can add one of the following options to an existing argument using the respective field.

    a) a counterargument

    b) a supporting argument

    c) a comment.

    Please, use these functions to keep the discussion transparent!

  5. You can rate existing arguments with a click on one of the stars. Thus you can rate the argument as “irrelevant”(one star), “dubious”(two stars), “reasonable”(three stars), “relevant” (four stars) or “convincing” (five stars).
