I just want to put my thoughts on some of the subjects out there.

Adopt-a-Noob Program

I would prefer to call this mentoring. There could be a committee of mentors who actively PM and welcome new members to the site, explaining their services as mentors.

A small collection of new/updated FAQs, Guides, etc... could be made for this.

Conflict Mediation Service

I think this could be a great tool. A committee of mediators would be available, and if a member has an issue with another member, they could PM one of the mediators, or the mediator assigned as the contact point, explain their issue, and the mediator could privately and individually work with both members to attempt resolution.

Bill of Rights

At first I was meh about this, but I like the idea. With the lack of interaction with Juggle, this would give us better control over the rules of the site, and we could also present them in a less... TOS-y way.

Strict TOS Enforcement

This goes hand in hand with the Bill of Rights. I think we need clearer rules on what conduct is allowed, and better enforcement of those rules. For instance(I have been guilty of this, but I know it is easier to do this in an environment where it happens all the time, compared to an environment where it isn't tolerated) no member should personally attack another member in a debate or on the forums. It's really ironic how often ad hominem attacks happen in the forums of a formal debate site...

Trials for Punishment

I like the idea of trials, but it needs a standard set forward in a clear template. There should be a standard number of rounds(I propose Opening Arguments/Rebuttals/Conclusion), a standard voting time, and a standard protocol for determining prosecution and defense. Perhaps a 'schedule' of punishments as well.

Never, ever, ever, ever, ever fix the exploitability of PMs.

Probably fix the exploitability of Debates.

A recent ad campaign has been run, attempting to smear the holy name of Detectable Ninja. This ad went as far as to take a joke out of context, and seriously suggest that Detectable Ninja is a prostitute.

DetectableNinja: ...offering my body to you...

It is clear that this campaign has been designed to distract DDOians from the real subject at hand: The Evil DDO Elite! For years now, the EDE have been striking fear into the hearts of DDOians, fear of being banned.

Jimtimmy: ...average DDO users are in fear of being banned...

There you have it, irrefutable proof that DDOians are living in constant fear. Do we want DDO to be a place of fear?

Jimtimmy: ...in fear... in fear... in fear of... average DDO users... in fear...

Or a place of Hope and Change?

Vote for Jimtimmy. He is a man who knows the real issue:


Jimtimmy: We feel like an Elite on DDO has gone too far... [RoyalPaladin] and 000ike [are] part of this Elite... has gone too far... 000ike and Nonentity...

We need a strong leader who knows the EDE by name:

Jimtimmy: You could say that juggle is the Elite.

Wait, I thought you said...

Jimtimmy: I think I'm just going to campaign against a nameless Elite.

...

Jimtimmy: You seem confused... If you are not satisfied with my answer, deal with it.

A leader who knows the anonymous Evil DDO Elite by name. A man of compassion and clarity. A man of love.

Jimtimmy: No I am not. People have treated me like sh*t my entire life, and I am only returning the favor.

Uh... right.

Darkkermit. A man who stands for values. A man who believes that strange puppet-creatures have the right to carry deadly weapons. A man who has the support of the people. But, he has more support than just that.

Darkkermit: Along side...my...mate...imabench.

That's right. A man who stands for progressive ideals and an understanding of alternative lifestyles. A man who will no longer persecute Alternative Lifestyle-ers who live in constant fear of being banned.

Jimtimmy: ...DDO users are in fear of being banned...

Yes, even Jimtimmy supports Darkkermit's quest to rid DDO of the Anti-Alternative-Lifestyle-ers. Isn't it about time we elect an official with the... ahem... cahoneys to do what is right?

Jimtimmy: ... you could say... juggle... them

Darkkermit. The man of the people. All the people.

No, 16k, you weren't neck and neck. You were substantially behind, so I started voting for you.

New issue:

Argument Formatting

I think we should have full support for formatting arguments in debates, as this will not only allow for more creativity, but a new line of fun-style debates, and easier segmentation of arguments.

Let me put some imput in on these.
Adopt-a-Noob program
I never herd of it. I've seen it around but never checked it out. It's almost worthless.

Trials for Punishment
We need more trials. Simply people walk around this site un-checked. We need a greater more peaceful society.

BIG Issues
These should simply be changed. We could use some new stuff every now and then.

Official Debate Tournaments
I've made 2 of these and partisipated in 4. My opion we need more, but not at once.

Debate Hall-of-Fame
People have tried this. We need to keep it going. Like I'm sure there are several people who deserve the title Mr.DDO Hall-of-Fame. Like Royal Larthum for instinse.

Fear of the Elite
Only those who are the trouble makers need to fear. In my opion more people should be banned.
