The New Debate Forum is Open!

Reza

Everyone:

The New ShiaChat Debate Forum is now open! 

How it works:

1. Participants must volunteer (or nominate others) and agree on a subject and conditions here in this thread. Two people only is ideal, but more can be considered if appropriate. If there is sufficient support from members, and staff thinks it's worthwhile, then the debate will happen! 

2. Your "Advanced Member" status will be temporarily replaced with "Debate Challenger" status, which will allow you to post in the Debate Forum. Only debate participants can post in the debate (As well as staff members, who can interject at any time). 

3. A thread will be opened in the debate forum, for as long as judged appropriately. Only one debate will take place at a time. 

4. Other members, while they cannot post, will be spectators and voters. A poll will be attached to the debate, asking members for their opinions in relation to the topic. 

5. Once the debate is over, it will be locked, members will return to Advanced Member status, and the cycle repeats. 

Volunteers, nominations, proposals, and comments below!

Disclaimer: Keep in mind a debate proposal may not be approved.

Can post-debate topics be opened where users can give opinions on the debate?

This could be interesting indeed. Like movingthe thread to another forum once the debate between the original  challengers is over.

:salam:

^That is how it was done before when we used to have a debate forum (it didn't last too long back then though). For example, discussion took place in this thread 

 and the actual debate took place in this thread: 

Don't judge me though - I was only 17 :blush:,

Wasalam

Yes that would be smarter than closing it, I believe. Leave it for an open discussion after the debate is over.

how is this different from any other thread on SC?

Posting is limited to two participants only, more focused discussion, specific conditions, less background noise and off-topic free for all. 

For those who want to go one-on-one against someone.

Let's have a debate first, then we'll see. In addition to the debate poll, a system of public commenting after the debate can be considered.

       Is Maruchan Instant Lunch shrimp flavor halal or haram? It contains chicken broth, but is that artificial?
    • Salaam Alaykum Brother Know that Allah loves you, otherwise he wouldn't put this thought into your mind. Somebody asked Imam Sadegh that I do a sin over and over again and every single time I feel ashamed of myself. Imam Sadegh said:" Know that Allah loves you so much that he put this feeling into your mind". Brother it's very hard and I understand it. I know how you feel whenever you need it. Try to spend more time with your family and try to find religious friends. They help you in not thinking about your desires. When you said you can avoid doing that for one or two week, I said this guy can avoid doing that forever. My brother,  you are young. Please please please don't pollute your clear heart with these rudimentary instantaneous satisfactions. You deserve more than that. If you are in the position of having a simple marriage, talk with your dad. If not, talk with your dad to find a good religious girl for you and do Mutah till you find a job and change it to permanent marriage. Allah bless you
