kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

First president was Ragnar_Rahl, VP was Rezzealaux

Second was Lexicohalic, VP Volkov

Third is Cody Franklin, VP Annhasle

The elections are supposed to take place around November. Nobody got motivated last time so I took initiating to get it started. I stepped down from organizing it when I became the candidate of the Party Party.

I was going to post the last election thread but now I can't find it.

This is all very interesting. Are their parties? Do you have to be nominated to run? What does the president do? Is it all a big joke?

Anyone can run.
The President does whatever he wants, as little or as much as he cares to.
It's a bit of a joke, yeah. :)

and coalitions.

Just say you want to run and you run.
What does the president do?
Nothing except puting the title on his/her signature and gloating about it for about a week or so.
Is it all a big joke?
Yes.

There have been many parties that have usually boiled down to two or three closer to the elections. To start a party just decide on a name, layout a platform and get at least 2 other people to join you. Each party decides on a candidate and further developes a platform and/or strategy in a private group message. The general election is held in the forums for public view and participation.

It is generally agreed that this is just a game but it means something different to everyone and possibility exists for actual presidential responsibilities.

Ever six months? When did that happen?

There really isn't a set time. The first elections were

http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...

Rags took office in November 2009
Lexi took office in March 2010 (only 4 months afterwards)
Franklin took office in December 2010 (9 months afterward).

Right now, there is no real form. I simply put 6 months, since that seems to be the average. But, really, it should be an agreement between the members and the current admin.

I, personally, thought that given the natural shot attention span of the internet, 6 months was a good time.

I think we should have an election some time next month. It seems fun and I might run.

Although I probably won't get many votes as I'm a n00b who's only been on the site for 2 months.

You can start running, I'm going to try to drum up some activity with it, but I really think that a consistent basis (like every 6 months) would be important to maintain.

So if I run I need to start a party and get some people to run with me?

No, you can run as an independent (like Innomen, last round), you just need a VP candidate. Also, if you fail to gather enough support, you may be excluded from presidential debates and interviews.

Interesting. Time to find a VP. At least something good comes out of my insomnia.

For anyone that wants to read up, I've done a little bit of research into the past elections and put them on the wiki. I wasn't around for the first one, and left shortly after the second (haven't started working on the 3rd yet).

If anyone has more info, please feel free to add info to it.

JUST FYI, when editing or adding pages it'll likely say that you timed out and so you will lose everything you typed. Before hitting "save changes" copy everything, so that when it says "timed out" you can hit back, paste everything again, and then save.

Also, if anyone has any ideas on how to format wiki pages, that would be really helpful. I'm just putting in info with zip formatting.
