About

ArgueHow is the ammunition for your bandoleer of reasonable discourse. We are not a forum for debate, rather we provide a simple interface to help you distill the best points to support your position and brace against popular opposition on a wide range of topics.

Be more prepared.

How ArgueHow Works

The ArgueHow system breaks down a little something like this...

• Each argument starts with a Topic. You can find Topics in one of three ways:

1) Use the search box, which you can find in the left-hand side bar, which will pull up Topics, Tags and Points that match your search terms,
2) Browse through Topics manually,
3) Start your own Topic by clicking on the Add A Topic button at the top of the page.

• When starting your own Topic, try to keep the Topic as basic as possible, the fewer words the better. Also, try to resist the impulse to use the term "versus," as it is difficult to make a definitive For or Against Point for "Microsoft versus Apple" or "Red versus Blue." Instead, use the subtopic field to clarify what you are comparing the Topic to.

• Tags act as a subcategorization system. Use the tags field to describe the Topic in a few one-word descriptions separated by commas. For example, if your Topic is "Apple" and you're referring to the corporation and not the food, your tag field might look like, "computer, corporation, technology, hardware".

• Within each Topic are Points, and each point can be either for or against the Topic.

• Within each Point are Creds and Cruds. If you think a Point is well made, you can give it Cred by clicking on the Cred button within a Point. If you think a Point is poorly made, you can bury it with Crud by clicking on the Crud button within a Point. You may only either Cred or Crud a Point once.

• Every user starts out with a Reputation of 50. Users who compose Points gain or lose Reputation based on how many Creds and Cruds their Points garner. The Reputation of a user who has composed fewer than twenty Points will be less affected by Creds and Cruds than a user who has composed twenty or more Points.

• Points are arranged by the average amount of Creds versus Cruds. The more Creds versus Cruds that a Point has, the higher it will appear in the corresponding For or Against column. A Point with fewer than ten total Creds and Cruds is less affected by Creds and Cruds than a Point that has ten or more total Creds and Cruds.
