Pros & Cons topics


(Leo Giovanetti) #1

Hello! I was wondering if there is any feature to cover what kialo.com provides: a debate around pros & cons of certain topic.

I would think that a feature like that could be shaped as a plugin but as it could modify the workflow of a topic, providing insights and statistics about the gathered opinions etc, maybe it could be a core feature.

Anyway, I wanted to officially ask about it as it would be difficult to move from Discourse by now being that it could perfectly fulfil the same requirements Kialo provides.

Thanks in advance, cheers!

Thanks for that reference @codinghorror. Couldn’t find an answer to my question though.

I guess that a plugin could potentially exist to gather requirements around providing an easy-to-understand UX covering Pros&Cons feature, but that would be require a huge effort to implement, and is not in the roadmap for Discourse core, right?

In addition to the economist debate pros and cons links I previously provided in the search results, you can look at https://www.slant.co/ for examples of a site built around pros and cons too

like so
