Good stuff!
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.

It is rare for people to maintain the high pace for an extended period of time. If you look at most of the leaderboard, you'll find that most only take a few debates a month now, when they use to take 5+ a week.

Finally, my complete lack of contribution to the site and it's debate system has been made even more apparent.

Thank you all, I'm glad to be here.

Is there any way for it to not count votes for yourself? Back when members could vote on their own debates, a few members would votebomb themselves every round, but this system makes it look like they're just active voters. Its still a great addition, but this tweak would be great.

You can vote more than once on a debate? Well that explains my record.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

Holy sh1t didn't read the part about being notified of other people voting on my debates. That's convenient.

The votes page only shows the instigator...?

Except sometimes it doesn't. Perhaps it only shows members who are still active? I don't know.

It would also be nice to see the actual vote next to the debate on the votes page, but I wouldn't expect to see that for a while.
