A statement is short sentence that defines a fact, suggestion or point of view. Like a quote, a statement is inherintly linked to the person who said it. The Debate Engine provides a way for anyone to create a statement and let other people assess on whether the statement is false, weak, strong or true.
Statements can be found by clicking on the Browse Statements tab. From there you can see the top statements as well as recent statements. Search functionality is coming soon.
To create a new statement click the Add New Statement button. Enter in your short, to-the-point statement then click the 'Create Statement' button. You will then be able to see your statement in the My Statements tab.
After logging in, to rate a statement simply open up a statement and click on the corresponding option of False, Weak, Strong or True. Please note that new users will not have access to the False and True options for a short while.
A statement can be added as a support for another statement. This can be an existing statement or a new one. To do this open up the statement you wish to support and click on the Supporting Statements tab. There you will see a input field where you can start entering your statement of support. If a similar statement already exists, please select that one, if not click the 'Add Statement' button. This new statement exists like any other and is accessible from your My Statements tab.
Statements in opposition to other statements can be created in the same way as supporting statements, just created from the Opposing Statements tabs.
