Shortly following this, there will also be a presidential midterm interview with Innomen. But for now, please go ahead and vote.

Just taken it!
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.

OreEle should be the next president. Not that Innomens not doing a good job, he's doing a great job. I just think OreEle would be a great next president.

I am not saying that OreEle is not fine and dandy but Innomen has done a great job and I don't think that anyone else could do any better, so I am not willing to take the 'risk'.

I know it's not much of a risk, it's not like President OreEle will nuke china...

Done. Inno you fared pretty darn well. Keep up the good work.

BTW, I think this might be a good time to say that Ore_Ele deserves some praise, as well. Thanks for all you do around here.

It is true he does a lot, and we work a lot together behind the scenes. He deserves great credit, and has more patience for the minutia of data than i do.

Yeah, but it's kind of boring to have the same president twice in a row :P

Seriously though Innomen is great, but OreEle has always been really dedicated to this site, (since I've been here at least). I think he deserves the spot.

It's been offered, and he has refused to run in the past. He prefers to be "neutral".

I second that. Its time that someone cracked down on trolls and profanity.

It's never going to work, one half of DDO wants that the other half does not.

Then this promises to be a close election. I want that option on the table. The website is just in a highly liberal trend right now that's blocking actions that would improve the quality of the site and give more people reason to stay. For people in general, a website without decency rules is fun for some and awful for the rest.

So anyone who wants to enforce rules is an authoritarian? Hmm, I guess authoritarianism is good then.

No, I'm referring to the political compass thread. There are some members who scored high on authoritarian, others low. Many of the membrs who are very libertarian I think would be too lenient. Innomen is smack in the center, so he's a good match.

And yes, strictly enforcing the rules is very bad. I think the management style here is perfect right now.

I have just taken it...And to Innomen, good job in adminstrating the site. Hopefully, the site will improve after its recent stagnation...

It's mildly flattering having my name thrown around, but I have no intentions of running for president. I much prefer running the elections and what nots.

Also, I'm going to be doing a mid term interview with Innomen (in PM and posting the results on Mon or Tues). If anyone wants me to ask any specific questions, please PM me so I can write them down to give him.

Who would decide who's a troll? What's the big deal with profanity? I don't swear but I don't have a problem with it.

Currently trolls are decided by reports and what Juggle decides to take action on. Even though Askbob likes to claim that Juggle has a person employed full time to deal with only Askbob, it is more likely that the person that deals with askbob is also taking care of reports and what nots.
