So lately some users have been running for "president"? I've only been on this site for a few months but is this legit (not sure with izbo on there), and does the "president" actually have a lot of control? Just curious.

The current president is innomen... It's legit.

It's also meaningless, as the position hold no power or influence. It's basically a glorified popularity contest.

Forgive me innomen, you are the almighty, I had no idea your powers were so vast and powerful. I will never doubt your word again.

OK, sure.

What power did you gain by being elected president? In what way have you improved this site, our ability to use it, and the quality of our collective experiences on it? In what way does your answer vary from what you could have done sans office?

These elections started out as a popularity contest, and I have stood on the sidelines and gently mocked them since they started; show me how they have gained meaning since then, and why I should give the tenth part of a fig who get elected on here.

Okay, give me a minute.....

You are so merciful; I don't deserve to be allowed to continue to speak in your presence after doubting you. I will spread the word about your power and benevolence wherever I go from now on.

Soon I will put together a post that details all that I've done in the last 6 months. Actually, it won't detail all but most, because some of what i do will remain private. Notice the difference between private and secret, as I have been accused of acting secretly.
