I ALREADY POSTED THIS AS SOMETHING ELSE, BUT I'M REPOSTING WITH A MORE DIRECT TITLE.

Yes indeedy do. I, Dninja, hereby announce my candidacy for Debate.org president.

Let me preface by saying that I understand that I am not a legal adult. I also understand that this probably would mean that I would not be a good conduit between the community and Juggle. However, I urge that this is not the reason one should discount a vote for me.

My platform will be primarily focused on our community and in-community initiatives. Help from Juggle, while nice, is something that I believe we as a community must not be dependent on. We can make DDO a great place without massive changes to the site code. My vision is for a DDO community that is stimulant to all sorts of ideas. One that can disagree and argue without obtrusive drama as seen in the past. Now, onto specific things I would try to help along the way if elected.

1) Adopt-a-noob programs. This will most likely take place in the form of an updated version of the rudimentary AaN which I began in the Mafia subcommunity, as well as one in the overall debate-oriented subcommunity. This could be accomplished either through a Minister of DDO immigration type-thing, or through 2 ministers--one for each sect.

2) Miscellaneous initiatives. These would encompass things such as the book club I started (which is fairly slow). We could have poetry/writing sharing groups as well. I believe that by creating initiatives, we can create a more welcoming and friendly DDO.

3) CONFLICT RESOLUTION AVENUES. This is the biggest push that made me seriously consider running in the first place, at least for this election. While healthy arguing and disagreements are fine, I would try to establish a service through PMs and such that would help people who have seriously disruptive, personal disagreements/problems. This would help the friendly atmosphere I envision, as well as reducing the amount of disruption and possible bannings that may have occurred otherwise.

4) A Bill of Rights. Yes, Thad indeed proposed this, but I'm not afraid to say that this is part of my platform as well, and for very similar reasons. For a community of intellectualism as well as well, DISCUSSION, we must have some stickied thread or otherwise that lists all members' rights. These could include freedom of speech (a big thing I advocate) and the right to not be abused on DDO.

Now, onto two things that I would advocate IF Juggle were willing:

1) Laxer TOS. This is a famous complaint, as well as the following one. I share it. I'm not as adament about it, but I agree. Some more relaxed TOS would lead to better discussions/fun, I believe.

2) Updated BIG Issues. I believe this doesn't need much description.

3) Anything else that's simpler than big overhauls.

Although my platform might seem a bit ho-hum, and although my reputation isn't as widespread as other candidates, the biggest thing you should take away from me is the one thing that I am focusing on this election: our community. We are like no other. We're very tight-knit. And I believe that we could make this place even better if I'm elected.

If you support me, and have any ideas for more possible platform ideas, drop me a line. I'll get back to you ASAP.

Also: I am in need of a VP. I have been planning on running for several months, but my previous VP dropped, and my replacement declined. So please, also drop me a line if you care to be my running mate.

My party's name is subject to change in the future, but for now, I'll simply call it the Dninja 4 DDO Party as a working name.

Thank you, and please--feel free to respond to this brief platform.

Humbly,
Dninja

I think it's time we elected a teenager for president. We are more than half the population of this community, yet we are ruled by adults! NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!!

Clearly, the cookies were implied.

MORAL VALUES.

SILLY PUTTY.

AMERICA!


These are three things that Detectable Ninja does NOT stand for. In fact, Detectable Ninja is in favor of political prostitution!

DetectableNinja: I take it offering my body to you doesn't count?

Does DDO really need another prostitute in office? Wouldn't you rather have a candidate who has something more to offer?

DetectableNinja: offering my body

No. It's time for DDO to take a stand. A stand against something!

Jimtimmy: I will stand against the Elite... as soon as I figure out who they are.

Vote for America, vote for Jimtimmy! No wait!...

To the people of DDO.

This advertisement was meant to slander my name, accusing me of political prostitution. While the statement was said, it was said in jest, explained by "all joking aside." I apologize for any and all misinterpretations the ad may have caused.

Humbly,
