List your top ten.
I've probably forgotten to include some key things but here is mine:

10. 2nd DDO Presidential Election
9. Juggle asks users how the site should be run
8. 3rd DDO Presidential Election and the Party Party vote-change.
7. Juggle reinstates Askbob's account after Phil's endless bannings.
6. Juggle bans Askbob for harassment, after warnings.
5. Juggle remodels the site, adds "Elected Officials" tab and new features.
4. 4th DDO Presidential Election
3. Koopin leaves
2. "Ancap Exodus" and "The Great Panic Attack"
1. Webcorp sells DDO to Juggle

Runner ups:

15. Party Party is formed
14. Mods ban Brainmaster for endless spamming
13. BrittWaller dies
12. Phil bans Vi_Veri for comment about "sucking Bill O'Reilly's dick", then reinstated when people call bullsht
11. Phil bans FREEDO for pornography, then given another chance after 30 days

What am I missing?

"Ancap exodus"? I don't recall that happening. It must have been while I was away since I hardly come here anymore.

I think it was. Basically a bunch of people, being mostly Ancaps, decided to go on strike and leave the site all at once. As if the site couldn't go on without them. Pretty hilarious.

Why exactly? Any particular reason? Did they just get bored?

They tried trolling trolls and got outtrolled.

We had ancaps? When?

Though we did lose some good members.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Some of the ones that I remember (in no particular order) are

1) Phil opens the vote tab to the public and accusations of Votebombing are thrown around.
2) Askbob and ccstate4peat vs Rogue
3) Askbob vs Lionheart
4) 4th Presidential Election (Askbob saying, whether elected or not, he is going to be the leader of the site)
5) 3rd Presidential Election (Party party throwing their votes behind Cody to give him the win over Innomen)

- My grand entrance to this site.

Though my comment is facetious, my entrance did actually shake things up big time on this site. All the top members were left confounded.

Yea... I can imagine your refusals to debate were very exciting.

Actually, the very first thing I did when I joined this site was challenge Ragnar_Rahl to a debate. We debated. I instigated several debates after that. So your notion that I refused to debate when I first joined is completely unfounded. Go check my debate history.

Oh him (http://www.debate.org...)...Gosh, he ruined a debate about the existence of god with his stupid comments ("ahh but i have indeed found the burdon of truth the, muffs have found it. oh mothy dear dear mothy") and others.

Has he been arguing in the forums as well, or just in the debates and comment pages?

Just debates.

I can tell why members want him banned...He shows no real passion to debate and ruins several, about the KCA, the existence of god, and so on, with his trolling.

He should be banned for multi-accounting not lack of passion. This is not an elitist website that eliminates weak links in its member population, and he doesn't troll, he only multi-accounts. I swear, trollhunting is the new McCarthyist agenda for this website!

Honestly I can't remember too much (ironic, I guess) specifically, perhaps because the community as a whole felt a bit more disconnected (I didn't go on the forum very much.) But I had a lot more memorable moments back then.

He is trolling every debate, with two words, 'nono'...And I did mean lack of motive to debate, not just mere 'lack of passion'...

True, though that doesn't mean that the 'weak links' should not feel obligated to a) clean up their conduct b)better themselves..
and he doesn't troll, he only multi-accounts. I swear, trollhunting is the new McCarthyist agenda for this website!

In the technical sense, he doesn't, but writing statements like 'no no', or 'ahh but i have indeed found the burdon of truth the, muffs have found it. oh mothy dear dear mothy' at least garners him as a reputation for a member who doesn't want to debate seriously...

That might be, but when he just thinks debating is all fun and games and writing 'no no', than that's considered 'trolling'....
