The answer is yes, I am calling a quits to the election from here on out. Whether I am still a player in this election is unknown, but whoever I endorse I will ask my supporters to move over.

Now there are many reasons I am calling quits, I will also give reasons why this even took this long.

Now the first reason is the VP dilemma. I PM'd people with no responses, and I felt the other options where poor choices and bad for he site. I wanted the best for this site. A bad VP pick is not what you, the people of DDO, deserve. This was a large factor in this decision.

The second reason was my age. Although (unless your a mod like innomen) the resident has little power and is at the whim of juggle and the other mods, that is not to say the presidents job should be taken lightly. I think..... To have good contact with juggle you need more age to be convincing. I really think a 14 year old male is unlikely to have any impact. And yes, this is a fact I denied the whole campaign. This was actually the reason I decided to drop out today.

The last reason is the poll results, aka SH dropping out. I still think I would be the frontrunner if SH hadn't dropped out and endorsed DK, if he stayed in I would be leading in the polls and would still be running. But although the polling was close, only a few percentage points, I doubt I could convince those people over. And I doubt that if TV dropped out that he would endorse me. So I think that I was going to stay stagnant. Most of DDO has a made up opinion, so my endorsemnt is really the last group of people that can sway the elections (except the other undecided people, but I think that group is shrinking).

Reasons it took so long:

I was getting PM's from my appointed election advisers, and from other people saying I should stay in and make this interesting.

Also, I promised JT I would run, I feel really bad I am quitting on him. But it is for the greater good.

I was the only one that offered a large change from innomen.

I dont know what goes on in the other candidates head, but I truly wanted those ideas to come along. I dont know if they are really dedicated to pushing their agenda.

Well that is all, I will endorse later today or tomorrow.

That is all. Signed:

So what happens to the two campaign websites you made?
Kevin24018 : "He's just so mean it makes me want to ball up my fists and stamp on the ground"
Geogeer: "Nobody is dumb enough to become my protege."
