How to post properly at Oncriteria
Questions and debates
Registered users can ask questions or propose a debate that have not been previously created. You can propose related issues but never twice the same.
You can add a debate or ask a question by going to the corresponding section and pressing the "Add new +" button. If you have not started a session, you will asked for it or to sign up. If you already have signed up you can skip this step.
A form is displayed and there you can set the debate's or question's title. This title is very important and should be carefully chosen because it is shown at the sections and abstracts. It must show at first sight an outline about the debate.
The form allows you to add an image if you need it to illustrate any aspect related to the debate/question.
Finally, a text field allows you to add everything you could need to make yourself understood, open a debate or to nuance a question. Explain everything you think is important, so the users can know what you want to discuss and what you don not or if you start from an hypothesis. Do not be afraid of explaining too much. You know what issue you want to raise but users should not. Any clarification will be welcome.
Clicking on the submit button your post will be published. Do not forget to respect others and comply with the terms and conditions.
Answers and assertions
These both are the same, something that you expose because you think it is true. The answers, of course, are assertions that clarify questions while the rest of the assertions are arguments to support another assertions and so to increase its credibility. You can also post assertions against what you consider false or mistaken so you can subtract credibility.
Of course, it is so important that your assertions should be properly argued and these must provide more than the original assertion. If you agree or you do not, do not add a new assertion, use the "I agree and support it" or "I am against it" buttons, but never use the assertions to add comments.
Among the "I agree and support" or "I am against it" there are lots of buttons with usual opinions like "It is impossible", "It is proven", "Has no sense" and many more that allow you to explain why you agree or you do not. As you see, this opinions include and argument, but you can add a new assertion explaining or extending your arguments if it is necessary.
