Let’s start from explaining of what you see now. We call it an “article page” because its structure is somewhat inspired by the articles on Wikipedia.
On the top of white part of the page you see a title. It shortly describes what this page is about.
Below you can see the table of contents, which is automatically created from the headers on this article page.
First header on this page is the “Page tructure”. It is written in a bigger font. Logically, headers define the parts of the article.
The rest is a text containing the sentences, which are organized in paragraphs. Just like this one that you are actually reading.
Every aforementioned part of the page (except, for now, the table of content) – title, header or paragraph –forms what we call a “semantic unit”. It is a small part of the article (“unit”), which already contains an idea (“semantic”).
You might have already noticed, that dragging the mouse cursor over a paragraph (when you are in the "discussion mode") changes its background to yellow. This should help to outline the corresponding semantic unit.
Moreover, freezing of the mouse cursor for a few seconds over some semantic unit will result in appearance of the pop-up menu.
Pop-up menu allows you to access some additional functionality (buttons from the left to the right):
- “discus this option” – redirects you to the “option page” of what you currently see in semantic unit – “current option”;
- “view all options” – redirects you to the “options list page” of the corresponding semantic unit;
- “view all goals” – redirects you to the “goals list page” of the corresponding semantic unit;
- “add option above” – allows you to create one more semantic unit, that will be added above this one;
- “add option below” – allows you to create one more semantic unit, that will be added below this one.
Concerning the special position of the title, its pop-up menu doesn’t allow adding a semantic unit above or below the title.
Next paragraph is design to test the “decision making mechanism”. I propose you to express your opinion on “What is the best number” (by setting new or voting for existing options, arguments with their probabilities and goals with their importances).
Discussion: what is the best number?
