The Winter DDO elections for 2011 are only 7 weeks away. That is less than 2 mafia games! It is time to start getting candidates. If you are interested in running, please state your name and VP candidate. All VPs must confirm that they are willing to be VPs, i.e. you cannot say so and so is your VP without their approval.

Also, you may sign yourself up before you get a VP, but before you can be in any polls, interviews, or debates, you need to have a VP. Also, it would be nice if the DDO Parties were to reform for this, but I know that they don't stay up during the political off season so getting them back together can be challenging.

I'd vote for you any day, Ore_Ele. You should run.

I'm not running in the election because I'm running the election (that sounds kinda wierd when I read it). Maybe some other day.

I'd announce that I'm running, but you're a wanker and probably wouldn't acknowledge it anyway.

whats all this about?

Every six months (though in the past it has been "every time we remember around the 6 month mark") we hold the DDO Elections to vote for the president of DDO. Though it is really more of a spokesperson role, than a president.

You're more than welcome to run. You just need a VP.

As you know from last time, if there emergy front runners, those that cannot maintain support will stop getting air time in the polls and interviews.

Running sounds fun. If I do run, I'd probably just be a puppet for askbob's policy proposals anyways since I think he was right on pretty much all of them.

There was a lot more than just that. I still have his policy ideas in a PM. I think someone from the former Rivalslb Party should run definitely.

And I'd vote for them. I don't remember much about ask bob or his policies. He was kinda a dictator though.

How do the election campaigns work? I may run.

Simply you get a VP, and set up a platform, typically focused around DDO issue, but for fun you may also address current politic issues. Often, people will set up DDO political parties aswell (usually a group PM).

I'll do polls frequently (usually every week or so) asking DDO members about who they support and what there stance is on particular issues. Obviously, if candidates drop to low support numbers (like...no support at all), I'll stop including them and work with who does have support.

Come December 11th, the election will start (which will be an open public vote in the forums) and it will end Dec 13th. The winner will officially start office on Dec 15th.

No, Juggle is still our supreme ruler and overloads. All our bases belong to them.

However, Juggle has stated (in the last election) that they recognize the president of DDO as a legitimate spokesperson for the members of DDO. Meaning if the president says "Hey, can we get a different color scheme" or something, it will hold more weight than if an ordinary member said it.

Typically, some things that the president focuses on are new member relationship, recruiting, etc. Though you can include or not include anything you want. For example, you could make it your platform to have regular debate Tournements or something.
