One of your platform positions is to reopen obviously votebombed debates. How do you know that Juggle is willing, and more importantly, able to do this?

This is something that I am going to attempt to do. If they are not "able" to do such a thing, then I will make a way to do this via my knowledge of php and coding.

You joined DDO 4 weeks ago, participated in 11 debates, and won only debates.

Do you feel that it is possible, you are too inexperienced, to handle to position of president? And how do you plan to reach out to the older DDO members?

I think that this is a vital question. I do not think that I am too inexperienced. You may be surprised to know that I have tons of experience. I am an administrator/moderator on numerous websites and forums, and am generally, well-liked. Therefore, because of my experience, I feel that I would be experienced enough and will be able to handle the presidential office.

I was unable to review Mr. Infidel's platform with the policy that Blackvoid stated, but I am interested to how you, Mr. Infidel, are going to help have more forum moderators...

1. Which users will appoint the forum moderators?
2. How are the forum moderators elected? On what basis?
3. To what code of conduct should the forum moderators adhere while modding the forums?
4. How would you respond to possible objections to this proposal?

In the first poll, Brian came in 2nd place (note, Panda was not in this poll, my bad). Do you believe that changing your positions around is going to help that?

1. Which users will appoint the forum moderators?

To be honest, this is still up for debate. I have not yet decided on who I want to be moderators. The character traits I am looking for are: (1) They have knowledge of debate.org and experience, (2) They are trustworthy and have respect, and (3) They do not abuse their powers.

2. How are the forum moderators elected? On what basis?

The moderator wannabes send in an application and undergo training. They are elected by the members and the office.

3. To what code of conduct should the forum moderators adhere while modding the forums?

(1) They do not play favorites.
(2) They uphold and respect to rules.
(3) They act in a professional manner.

4. How would you respond to possible objections to this proposal?

If enough objection is raised, then I will probably drop the proposal as I want debate.org to grow and to be a happy community. Therefore, I will always listen to what the debate.org members want.

The point of having the power of the moderator tools is to clean up spam, listen to user report, make sure threads are not getting out of hand. The power is NOT to be used to lock and/or delete any thread you like just because you do not like the OP.

I believe they would be treated differently in both positive and negative aspects. For the positive aspects, they would receive more respect and recognition on debate.org as well the community being comfortable knowing who is and who is not running the forum. Moreover, there is the possible negative aspect of them being harasser by PM, in which case I would recommend blocking the abuser.

okay, I was being sarcastic with that. But, I guess a 3 month sentence for not adhering to Poe's Law is now in order.

If people will be treated differently for it (say, people not wanting to argue or debate out of fear of authoritah, or simply complained to a lot) why make them public?

(I am not sure if the mods can actually block members...but anyway:

Would having more forum moderators to control a site that has long been accustomed to little moderation be detrimental or hard to accept by the members of the site?

To be honest, this is still up for debate. I have not yet decided on who I want to be moderators. The character traits I am looking for are: (1) They have knowledge of debate.org and experience, (2) They are trustworthy and have respect, and (3) They do not abuse their powers.

What?! Why not?! What is the point of having power if you don't get to abuse it?

The point of having the power of the moderator tools is to clean up spam, listen to user report, make sure threads are not getting out of hand. The power is NOT to be used to lock and/or delete any thread you like just because you do not like the OP.



2. How are the forum moderators elected? On what basis?

The moderator wannabes send in an application and undergo training. They are elected by the members and the office.

3. To what code of conduct should the forum moderators adhere while modding the forums?

(1) They do not play favorites.
(2) They uphold and respect to rules.
(3) They act in a professional manner.

4. How would you respond to possible objections to this proposal?

If enough objection is raised, then I will probably drop the proposal as I want debate.org to grow and to be a happy community. Therefore, I will always listen to what the debate.org members want.

In regards to forum moderators. Do you believe that publically known moderaters would be treated differently by the community?

Yes I do.

How??? (hypothetically)

I believe they would be treated differently in both positive and negative aspects. For the positive aspects, they would receive more respect and recognition on debate.org as well the community being comfortable knowing who is and who is not running the forum. Moreover, there is the possible negative aspect of them being harasser by PM, in which case I would recommend blocking the abuser.

(I am not sure if the mods can actually block members...but anyway:

Would having more forum moderators to control a site that has long been accustomed to little moderation be detrimental or hard to accept by the members of the site?

At first, I believe it may be somewhat hard. However, as I said before, if enough objection and hardships come from the mods, then I will take it down. I will listen to the community's objection.

Mr.Infidel, you're evading the question. I'll take that as a tacit admission of guilt.

Moving on.

Are the other allegations that you are in fact the user, Kohai, true? Are you willing to provide Birthers with a birth certificate?
