I was told that 100 forum posts or 3 debates were required to vote.

However, I have just found out that it is actually 500 and 5.

I understand why you have requirements here. But, isn't 500 a bit unreasonable?
We spend too much our time measuring compassion for those in needs by measuring inputs. How much money are we spending? How many programs are we creating? But we are not focusing on outcomes. Are these programs working? Are people getting out of poverty?

All people with less than 500 votes are "noobs"?

I understand having a limit, but 500 seems pretty high.

For some reason, I just feel like I would procrastinate. If I debate, I want to put in my all.

The whole reason was to prevent people who don't know about the community from having a say. It also prevents multiaccounts from voting. Finally, it prevents candidates from engaging in highly unethical behavior (i.e. recruiting n00bs to vote for him).

I understand.

I am not arguing with the principle. 500 just seems way too high. 100 or 200 would be reasonable. 500 is not.

What did he do?

He hacked his grandfather's account and used it to vote on his debates. This is confirmed via IP address checks. He only got off because the prosecutor goofed and there was a mistrial. He also admits to votebombing on debates

He seems like a nice guy to me, and he has been more hospitable than you have.

He's not a very nice person. I can provide evidence that he wants to ban people for being liberal.

Well then you are not too committed to debating.. and that's the purpose of this site.. If you aren't interested in the purpose of this site, then you should similarly have little say in who should be president of it.

5 debates isn't that many anyways.. you can do short debates about simple subjects.. or just not vote.. Frankly, I don't see why someone who has such little involvement with this site should really care anyway who becomes president anyway.

Yes. I can PM you the evidence. The moderator and current President, innomen, provided it to us. I was on the Prosecution team.
Or, are these accusations?

When did he say he wants to ban liberals?
He originally was running as the VP of a racist and inflammatory member called jimtimmy. JT wanted to ban the DDO Elite (liberals who disagreed with his nonsense). 16kadams supported his position.

I was told that 100 forum posts or 3 debates were required to vote.

However, I have just found out that it is actually 500 and 5.

I understand why you have requirements here. But, isn't 500 a bit unreasonable?

its to prevent candidates from getting noobs to vote for them.....

I see you are friends with 16kadams....

Mystery solved.


All people with less than 500 votes are "noobs"?

I understand having a limit, but 500 seems pretty high.

Just tell 16k to try advertising to other people while not mentioning how he almost got banned from the site, was put on trial, and has a ridiculous platform (to name a few)


They have trials here?

What did he do?

He hacked his grandfather's account and used it to vote on his debates. This is confirmed via IP address checks. He only got off because the prosecutor goofed and there was a mistrial. He also admits to votebombing on debates
What is his platform?

He seems like a nice guy to me, and he has been more hospitable than you have.

He's not a very nice person. I can provide evidence that he wants to ban people for being liberal.


Is this really confirmed?

Yes. I can PM you the evidence. The moderator and current President, innomen, provided it to us. I was on the Prosecution team.
Or, are these accusations?

When did he say he wants to ban liberals?
He originally was running as the VP of a racist and inflammatory member called jimtimmy. JT wanted to ban the DDO Elite (liberals who disagreed with his nonsense). 16kadams supported his position.

Yes, I would like to see this.

16kadams seems like a nice guy, but perhaps I misjudged him.

Either way, I'll need to see the proof first.
We spend too much our time measuring compassion for those in needs by measuring inputs. How much money are we spending? How many programs are we creating? But we are not focusing on outcomes. Are these programs working? Are people getting out of poverty?

It's a term that JT made up to describe the liberals who disagreed with him. Apparently we have too much influence on this site even though most people are libertarians.

Also keep in mind that in the forums and on some debates, 16kadams admitted that he was a votebomber who voted for Conservative positions without reading debates.

Who is this JT guy?

He sounds like quite a character.

Wow, this site sounds like it has a lot of drama for a debate site.

He only thought 000ike had any influence, he just had BS about you (or I think he was BSing there). He even said he would not ban you, just ignore you.

500 posts is a bit too much. I have been here for 3 months as an active member and I just reached 500 a few days ago.
