I'd like to offically place my name on the ballot. I would like to thank all of my supporters that have begged me to put my name in the race, for you have convinced me that DDO could not possibly go on without my wise leadership. For the few of you that do not know what I stand for, I'll make it clear in this thread.

I stand for;

1) Prohibition of debates. I have decided that debates are a source of drama on this website, and to prevent further drama I will be making it a bannable offense to participate in a debate. In fact, I think we'll all just get along a lot better if you all just agree with all of my opinions. Also, disagreeing with me may result in a ban.

2) The proliferation of gambling on this fine website, the profits of which will be shared by all! (Every member that sends me their social security number, bank routing number, and checking account number will receive up to 15% of the profits!)

3) The suspension of trials to determine if members are punished for their actions. Instead I, and two Yes-Men shall determine if a member in punished for any reason we see fit.

4) Presidential terms shall be increased from 6 months to life. I feel that constant elections make it harder for the president to do his job, and by increasing his term he won't have to cater to voters and can focus solely on accomplishing the three points of my platform I've already anounced.

Vote MrBrooks! I'm also looking for a Vice Presidential candidate and a campaign manager, if anyone is interested.

There are too many people running. The more people enter, the less serious the election process appears.

Agreed, but people will drop out. As always. And what are you saying to do instead? Democracy should be allowed by all.

In addition, this seems to be more of a comedy post to me.

Clearly there is only one logical course of action to take. We'll skip the elections and just appoint a president, a charismatic and able leader. Me.

Can this thread be any less serious? No.
