Nobody has time to read and digest thousands of individual responses, and nobody wants to add yet another response when there are already 1000. The goal of the Canonizer is to group as many similar responses as possible into camp statements and provide a quantitative measure of how many people are in each camp
When you click on a statement title in the top Camp Tree section, the belief statement for that camp shows up in the bottom pane. The numbers next to the title indicate the number of people in that camp. The Canonizer reconfigures the system to only count people with certain attributes and re sorts the camps accordingly. For example, if you select the "Mormon" Canonizer, only the votes of Mormons will be counted and indicated in these numbers. See this topic on canonization algorithms for more info on how canonization works and how the values are determined.
Please review the existing camps to see if there is one close to what you want to say. If there is, you can click on the for that camp which will take you to the Canonizer page for that camp where you can join or directly support them, adding to their numbers. You can also help improve the statement in a wiki kind of way, as long as all current members of the camp agree to your proposed changes.
If there is not already such a camp, or if the people in such a camp are objecting to your proposed changes, you can choose the
The camps form a hierarchy of statements. If you join a sub camp of another camp, your vote is counted in all parent camps. So sub camps are considered supporting camps. They contain more specific information or points of view that maybe everyone else in the camp doesn't share.
Sibling camps, on the other hand, are considered competing camps. The top level camp is called the "agreement camp" and only contains information that everyone agrees with. So feel free to move or add a new camp in the appropriate place in the structure.
